NFL Inactives: Mike Williams will play against Falcons

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The inactives for the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in.

UPDATE: Da'Quan Bowers is active, but DT Derek Landri is out, the Bucs announced.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have their full receiving corps available today, as Mike Williams will play today after being listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been struggling with a hamstring injury. Carl Nicks and Jeff Demps are both out, but a surprise inactive is Da'Quan Bowers, who suffered a toe injury this week that will apparently keep him out for the game.

It seems like the Bucs will move Jeremy Zuttah to left guard and play Ted Larsen at center, as Mike Glennon was taking snaps from Larsen before the game, per Pat Yasinskas. Davin Joseph has been cleared to play, though, so he will presumably be at right guard.

The Atlanta Falcons will be without Roddy White and Steven Jackson, while Julio Jones was placed on injured reserve last week. That leaves precious few weapons for Matt Ryan, who essentially has just Tony Gonzalez and Harry Douglas to help him out now. With the Bucs producing one of the top defenses in the NFL they should be able to contain the Atlanta offense. This game has all the makings of a defensive struggle.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons face off in the Georgia Dome at 1:00 PM ET today.

Bucs Inactives: WR Skye Dawson, RB Jeff Demps, CB Deveron Carr, G Patrick Omameh, G Carl Nicks, DT Derek Landri & DE Steven Means.

Falcons Inactives: S Kemal Ishmael, RB Steven Jackson, G Harland Gunn, T Sam Baker, WR Roddy White, TE Chase Coffman, DT Travian Robertson
