Run defense? Nope.
Run defense? Nope.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are having some injury issues with their front seven, as if they didn't have enough trouble stopping the run when healthy. DT Albert Haynesworth, DE Michael Bennett, LB Geno Hayes and DT Brian Price are all starters who are listed as Questionable with on the injury report with various ailments. In addition, backup LB Adam Hayward is also listed as Questionable and backup DT Roy Miller is listed as probable.

Meanwhile, the Carolina Panthers are having some extra injury problems on defense, outside of the numerous starters they've placed on injured reserve throughout the season. CB Captain Munnerlyn has been ruled out for the game, which would leave them with Chris Gamble and a whole list of nothing at cornerback. In addition, starting safety Charles Godfery is listed as Doubtful.

Of course, the Bucs haven't been able to take advantage of any weaknesses in secondaries recently, so this shouldn't really be a problem for the Panthers.
