Buccaneers vs Dolphins inactives for week eleven
By James Yarcho
Here is the full inactive report for the week eleven match-up between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins.
We were made aware of some of the inactives for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier in the week, including quarterback Jameis Winston for the second consecutive game as he continues to deal with a lingering shoulder issue. Vernon Hargreaves left last week’s game against the New York Jets with a hamstring injury and won’t be able to suit up against the Dolphins this week. As we saw with Kwon Alexander this season, hamstrings are tricky injuries and there’s never a true timetable for a player to return from them.
Here are the inactives for week eleven;
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Quarterback – Jameis Winston
Cornerback – Vernon Hargreaves
Center – Joe Hawley
Guard – Caleb Benenoch
Tight End – Luke Stocker
Defensive End – William Gholston
Defensive Tackle – Sealver Siliga
Quarterback – David Fales
Cornerback – Jordan Lucas
Cornerback – Torry McTyer
Running Back – De’Veon Smith
Guard – Issac Asiata
Tackle – Zach Sterup
Wide Receiver – Leonte Carroo
Tight end Antony Auclair will be active for only the second time this season with Stocker ended up on the inactives list. Ryan Smith, as expected, will replace Vernon Hargreaves opposite Brent Grimes, and defensive end Darryl Tapp will fill in for Gholston who is still down with the neck injury that led to him being carted off the field against the New Orleans Saints two weeks ago.
The load will once again fall onto the shoulders of Ryan Fitzpatrick who is 1-0 in starts this season and the return of Mike Evans from suspension will provide a big, reliable target for Fitz that he didn’t have last week. Expect more short-to-intermediate passes to DeSean Jackson again this week as they will try to utilize his speed in space to create positive plays, rather than relying heavily on the deep ball.
