Thursday night NFL tonight on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket at 8pm. The matchup is Atlanta hosting the Tampa Bay Bucs. That means some prime time action for former Patriots offensive lineman Logan Mankins.

The all-pro Mankins was traded to the Bucs just before the start of the season for TE Tim Wright and a draft pick. The move shocked many New England fans because Mankins was Tom Brady's main body guard on the line for 9 years.

Mankins hyperextended his knee during the season opener against Carolina.

He did return to play last week against St. Louis.

The Bucs are 0-2 and have lost by a total of 8 points.

The Atlanta Falcons are 1-1.
