The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ two starting cornerbacks were listed as questionable on the injury report for their Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans, and Sunday’s list of inactive players contained equal parts good and bad news. Jamel Dean, who suffered a concussion a week ago, cleared the league’s protocol and will be available to play on Sunday, but a toe injury prevents Carlton Davis from returning to action.
Rookie defenseman Josh Hayes was sidelined Friday with a concussion and guard Matt Feiler will miss his third consecutive appearance with a knee complaint. Aaron Stinnie will start again on the left side. Three other Buccaneers who were listed as questionable Friday — defensive linemen Logan Hall and Calijah Kancey and wide receiver Trey Palmer — will be eligible to play against the Titans.
Rookie outside linebacker Markees Watts is active for just the second time this season and could make his NFL debut after not playing a snap in Week Six when he was active. Rookie running back Sean Tucker is also back in action for the first time since week seven.
Tampa Bay promoted John Wolford from the practice squad in week nine, meaning the team now has three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. Therefore, the Bucs will benefit from the NFL’s new “inactive third quarterback” rule on Sunday. Wolford is on the inactive list for the game but would be expected to play if both Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask were to leave the game due to injury or withdrawal.
The Buccaneers and Titans submitted their inactive lists at 11:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, 90 minutes before the scheduled kickoff of their Week 10 game at Raymond James Stadium. The Buccaneers designated cornerback Keenan Isaac from the practice squad on Saturday, which meant they had to name six players inactive.
Tennessee’s inactive information will be added soon.
