Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Jorvorskie Lane was placed on injured reserved on Monday after suffering a season-ending injury to his right leg in Sunday’s loss to the Chicago Bears. Lane was injured on a carry in the second quarter and had to be carted off the field. Guard Logan Mankins summoned the trainers from the sideline to assist his fallen teammate moments after Lane went down after a gain of two yards.
