Buccaneers vs Saints week 17 inactives
By James Yarcho
Here are the full list of inactive players for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints in the week seventeen match-up.
The final go round for the 2017 Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without some familiar faces. As they prepare to take on a New Orleans Saints team still fighting for a division title and playoff seeding, the Buccaneers will be without star receiver DeSean Jackson for the second consecutive week.
Here are the full inactives from each team;
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Quarterback – Ryan Griffin
Wide Receiver – DeSean Jackson
Defensive End – Robert Ayers
Cornerback – David Rivers
Linebacker – Devante Bond
Defensive End – Patrick O’Connor
Guard – Adam Gettis
New Orleans Saints
Defensive End – Trey Hendrickson
Offensive Tackle – Terron Armstead
Tight End – Michael Hoomanawanui
Center – Cameron Tom
Running Back – Jonathan Williams
Wide Receiver – Austin Carr
Defensive End – Kasim Edebali
Wide receiver Chris Godwin will fill in for DeSean Jackson while Will Clarke Jr. will take the place of Robert Ayers. Godwin along with Ryan Russell and Cameron Brate were all questionable heading into the weekend but will play whereas Jackson was questionable and the coaches apparently felt it was best to let him sit out this one with the ankle injury.
Look for Godwin to once again get an increase in targets and receptions as his chemistry with quarterback Jameis Winston has grown since Winston’s return to the field.
Clarke has stepped up in his limited play, getting eight tackles and one-and-a-half sacks in his last four games. We’ve likely seen the last of Robert Ayers in a Buccaneers jersey as he hasn’t helped the pass rush as much as the Bucs expected – or hoped – over the last two seasons.
