That could be even more of a problem Saturday as the Bucs play the Carolina Panthers with a very thin group of defensive linemen.
Defensive tackles Brian Price and Albert Haynesworth have been declared inactive for this game. Price has been dealing with an ankle injury. Haynesworth has been listed with a knee injury, but the fact he’s inactive comes as a bit of a surprise. The Bucs had been listing Haynesworth on the injury report since acquiring him. They frequently give him days off from practice, but he had always been active for games.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have struggled against the run most of the year, particularly after losing defensive tackle Gerald McCoy to a season-ending injury.
