The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons are about to kick off the first of their two match-ups this season. Here’s the full list of players that are inactive today.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a team riddled with injury and they are preparing to take on the Atlanta Falcons in a crucial divisional match-up. If the Bucs were to somehow win this game, they actually find themselves in the thick of the playoff race. That will be a tall order, however, considering how many key players they’re missing.
We have known for the majority of the week the Buccaneers would be without starting quarterback Jameis Winston for the third consecutive game. Missing his second consecutive is cornerback Vernon Hargreaves. Defensive end Robert Ayers is going to miss this game, putting more pressure on an already sketchy pass rush. And offensive lineman Evan Smith will miss due to a concussion.
The Falcons will be without star running back Devonta Freeman for the second straight week as he is still in concussion protocol as well as missing tackle Ty Sambrailo with a hamstring issue. Here are the full inactives for the Buccaneers and the Falcons;
