Inactives for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams: Mark Barron and Tavon Austin Will Not Play

Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams have young stars sitting on the sideline for today’s game, as they face off in the dome in St. Louis.

Here are the Buccaneers’ inactives first:

Bowers and Barron are the biggest names on the list, as they will sit with injuries. Barron is the bigger loss, as he will be replaced by Keith Tandy, who is certainly not on the same level as Barron.

Masifilo was just added to the roster, but will be inactive alongside other recent additions in Pryor and Lansanah.

And here are the St. Louis inactives:

For the Rams, the loss of Tavon Austin and Daryl Richardson represents two contributors to an offense that is otherwise lacking in playmakers. Richardson lost his starting job to Zac Stacy, but he still would have played to provide a change of pace.

Austin is the bigger loss, as he’s a special teams dynamo and a playmaker at wide receiver. He’s the kind of player that would give the Buccaneers trouble on short routes over the middle, and is capable of turning any play into a touchdown.

Otherwise, both teams have no surprises on the inactive lists, and are ready for an NFC matchup today in the midwest.
