Buccaneers vs. Broncos Inactives: Brandon Stokley, Tracy Porter, Robert Ayers out for Broncos

Justin Edmonds

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are healthy going into Sunday's game, while the Denver Broncos have a number of key injuries.

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley, cornerback Tracy Porter and defensive end Robert Ayers will all miss today's game between the Denver Broncos and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Stokley and Porter are both suffering from injuries, while Robert Ayers is unable to play because he is dealing with the loss of his father.

Missing Stokley will hurt the Broncos' ability to exploit a weak Tampa Bay secondary, while the Bucs should have more success through the air now that the Broncos are missing Porter.

For the Bucs, safety/cornerback Keith Tandy is finally active, as the sixth-round pick has barely seen playing time this year. He should add a little depth to the team. The Bucs have no injuries, and because they have just 52 players on the active roster they only had to name six inactive players.

Full Inactives

Denver Broncos: WR Brandon Stokley, QB Caleb Hanie, CB Tracy Porter, FB Jacob Hester, C/G C.J. Davis, TE Julius Thomas and DE Robert Ayers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: RB Michael Smith, LB Najee Goode, G/T Derek Hardman, WR David Gilreath, WR David Douglas and DT Matthew Masifilo.
