The inactives are out for the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys. The latter have been hit hardest, as they're missing four starters, three of them quality starters on defense. Safety Gerald Sensabaugh, DTs Jay Ratliff and Kenyon Coleman and center Phil Costa are all out, which should produce significant problems for the Cowboys on both sides of the ball.

For the Bucs, Anthony Gaitor is the only player to be inactive with a significant injury - but cornerback E.J. Biggers continues to not play, despite participating in practice for most of the week and being listed as Probable on the injury report. Brandon McDonald, Leonard Johnson and even Myron Lewis could now see a significant role on defense. Another unexpected inactive is CB/S Keith Tandy, who has played a significant role on special teams but has not been featured on defense. New addition Chris Owusu is also inactive, as is rookie RB Michael Smith. Jordan Shipley and Tiquan Underwood are both active, though, as is rookie LB Najee Goode for the first time in his career.

Full Inactives:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB Anthony Gaitor, CB E.J. Biggers, RB Michael Smith, S Keith Tandy, WR Chris Owusu, T Jamon Meredith, DE George Johnson.

Dallas Cowboys: WR Cole Beasley, LB Alex Albright, S Matt Johnson, C Phil Costa, DT Kenyon Coleman, DT Jay Ratliff, S Gerald Sensabaugh.
