Inactives for the Buccaneers

By Pat Yasinskas

TAMPA, Fla. -- No big surprise here, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without two injured starters for Sunday’s game with New Orleans.

Running back LeGarrette Blount (foot) and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (ankle) are inactive. Earnest Graham and Kregg Lumpkin are expected to share Blount’s work load. Frank Okam and Da’Quan Bowers are expected to rotate at McCoy’s spot.

The other inactives are receiver Sammie Stroughter, linebacker Zac Diles, offensive tackle Derek Hardman, offensive tackle James Lee and tight end Luke Stocker.
