Bucs - Packers Inactives: Tanard Jackson, Frank Okam, Chad Clifton out

The most significant player to miss today's game for the Bucs today will be S Tanard Jackson. The embattled safety hasn't practiced this week, making his absence predictable - but still a problem for Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers will likely rotate Larry Asante and Corey Lynch at free safety to compensate, but this makes it even more difficult for the Bucs to stop Aaron Rodgers

Other significant inactives for the Bucs are DT Frank Okam and T Demar Dotson. Okam looked like he could play today after practicing during the week, but will remain on the bench. That means Albert Haynesworth will once again see a lot of playing time. As for Demar Dotson, he has been the sixth offensive lineman since week 2 of the season, and has done a decent job so far. Why he's inactive instead of James Lee I can't say. Lee was injured for part of the season, but hasn't appeared on the injury report for weeks. 

For the Packers, the only significant inactive is T Chad Clifton, who hasn't played in weeks. DE Mike Neal is active for the Packers, which means he will play for the first time this season.
