The injury exposed the Bucs' lack of secondary depth, as Crezdon Butler made his first NFL start in Banks' place. Tampa Bay was already playing without inactive S Dashon Goldson (ankle). The Bucs had only three cornerbacks on their roster: Butler, starter Alterraun Verner and rookie Brandon Dixon. The unit was exposed as Ravens QB Joe Flacco lit up the Bucs for five touchdowns in just over 16 minutes and finished with 306 passing yards on the game.

10/22/13 - CB Johnthan Banks gave up two long touchdown passes the past two games, but Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano doesn't think it will faze the second-round pick from Mississippi State.
"I think it's a double-whammy, being a rookie and being opposite (cornerback) Darrelle Revis, you're going to get balls thrown your way," Schiano said. "He played some really good football, highlighted by that end-zone interception (Sept. 29 against the Arizona Cardinals), that was one of the plays of the year, I think. Since then, he's had a couple plays against him that would shake a lesser player's confidence. Johnthan is not shaken, Johnthan will come back, he'll play great this week.
