Buccaneers vs. Panthers inactives: Revis plays, DeAngelo Williams out

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Darrelle Revis will play today, while DeAngelo Williams is out.

As reported earlier by Adam Schefter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have Darrelle Revis on the field today. Revis is expected to cover Steve Smith, although the Bucs will likely play a mix of zone and man coverage as they usually do. With Dashon Goldson present and active for today's game, the Bucs should do better against Cam Newton and company than they did last game.

The Carolina Panthers will miss two of their star players in DeAngelo Williams and Charles Johnson. Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert should fill in for Williams, and the Panthers are unlikely to see much of a dropoff there. Johnson is a lot more difficult to replace, though, even for the Panthers' outstanding front seven.

One surprise inactive for the Bucs is receiver Skye Dawson, who has been the main third receiver for the Bucs the past few weeks. Chris Owusu is likely to take his place. Lonnie Pryor continues to be inactive, with Michael Hill and Kyle Adams getting the nod over him this week.

Buccaneers inactives: WR Skye Dawson, FB Lonnie Pryor, S Bradley McDougald, G Patrick OMameh, G Carl Nicks, DT Derek Landri and DE Steven Means.

Panthers inactives: WR Tavarres King, WR Marvin McNutt, RB DeAngelo Williams, OL Chris Scott, TE Ben Hartsock, LB Chase Blackburn, DE Charles Johnson
