The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without starting running back Doug Martin against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Bobby Rainey will start in his place while Mike James will be his backup.

As previously announced, the Bucs will also be without defensive end Michael Johnson and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Da’Quan Bowers and William Gholston will get the start at defensive end in place of Johnson and Adrian Clayborn, who went on injured reserve earlier in the week.

The other Tampa Bay inactives are cornerback Rashaan Melvin and offensive tackles Kevin Pamphile, Rishaw Johnson and Kadeem Edwards.

Despite leaving last weeks game with an injury, Logan Mankins is active and will start at left guard for the Bucs.

The Rams have all three of their quarterbacks active but it’s still unclear who will actually start for St. Louis. The Rams will also be without cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and Lamarcus Joyner
