John Carlson, Mistral Raymond out
MINNEAPOLIS -- Tight end John Carlson will miss Minnesota's game against Tampa Bay on Thursday night because of concussion-like symptoms, as expected.
Joining Carlson and Raymond in street clothes on Thursday night were quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, wide receiver Jairus Wright, cornerback Brandon Burton, linebacker Audie Cole and offensive lineman Mark Asper. Wright, a rookie out of Arkansas, hasn't played yet.
For the Buccaneers, cornerback Myron Lewis, running back Michael Smith, safety Keith Tandy, linebacker Najee Goode, center Cody Wallace, wide receiver Chris Owusu and tight end Danny Noble were inactive. Cornerback Brandon McDonald, questionable because of an ankle injury, was suited up.
