The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without cornerback LeQuan Lewis, but are otherwise healthy against the New Orleans Saints. Defensive end Da'Quan Bowers will play despite struggling with a hamstring injury, which should boost Tampa Bay's pass rush. The Bucs defensive line should have an easy go of it against New Orleans, who will give William Robinson his first NFL start this week.
For the Saints, running back Chris Ivory, tackle Zach Strief and linebacker Scott Shanle are the most significant inactives. New Orleans placed safety Malcolm Jenkins and tackle Charles Brown on injured reserve yesterday. Isa Abdul-Quddus will start in Jenkins' place at free safety.
