      Bucs’ McCoy not playing at 100 percentgerald_zpsrwxl7vip.jpg Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy  is shown during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday in Houston. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tribune staff Published: September 27, 2015Pro Bowl DT Gerald McCoy kept shuttling in and out of the game and had a bag of ice strapped across his right shoulder in the locker room.“I wasn’t able to be me,’’ said McCoy, who was hurt in last week’s victory at New Orleans. “My presence helps and, obviously, I’d like to be 100 percent, but things happen.’’McCoy made only two tackles, but turned in what appeared to be a signature play late in the opening quarter by sacking Ryan Mallett and forcing a fumble recovered by teammate Jacquies Smith.The potential takeaway, however, was nullified by a holding call against safety D.J. Swearinger.Johnthan Banks says he's "fine" after knee injurySep 27, 2015banks2_zpsqevhgvre.png Tampa Bay Buccaneers seem to have gotten lucky with injuries once again, after Johnthan Banks left the game against the Houston Texans with a knee injury. Banks didn't return to play, but told Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times after the game that he was "fine."banks1_zpsdkaa1l5f.pngWe'll have to wait and see whether that's actually true, as players don't always have the most realistic view of the seriousness of their injuries, but he presumably talked to a physician today.The Bucs turned to Mike Jenkins to replace Johnthan Banks today, with Alterraun Verner not getting a lot of playing time. That backfired, with Jenkins repeatedly beat on quick throws while Verner held up well when he was called upon to play. I'm not sure what the team's fascination with Jenkins is about, nor what Verner did to be put in the doghouse, but having Banks back should make that a moot point.link

      McCoy looked gassed big time in the second half.
