The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cincinnati Bengals released their inactives for Week 8. The Bucs are in good shape while the Bengals will be shorthanded on both sides of the ball.
While the loss of both defensive linemen will hurt, that was the expectation for the entire week as they missed the previous game as well.

The Bengals are devastated with injuries this week. Multiple starters on both sides of the ball will sit out with injuries.
Burfict may make the headlines, but the loss of Dennard is enormous. He is the Bengals starting slot corner. With the Buccaneers talented receivers, there could be a mismatch in the Cincy secondary.
Throughout a long NFL season, teams sometimes run into an opponent at the perfect time. That may be the case for Tampa Bay this week as they face a depleted Cincinnati squad.
