The inactives are in, and it seems that DT Brian Price and LB Adam Hayward are the most significant inactives for the Bucs. The Bucs don't have a lot of quality at defensive tackle as it is, and Brian Price and Albert Haynesworth at least provided a disruptive presence. The good news is that Arrelious Benn makes his return, adding some speed to the Bucs' offense, and none of the other front seven players are injured. Interestingly, S Ahmad Black is once again active over Larry Asante who seems to have fallen out of favor.
For the Panthers, CB Captain Munnerlyn was placed on injured reserve, and S Charles Godfrey is inactive with an injury. That really hurts their secondary, which has been pretty poor all year anyway. Other than that, there are no significant inactives for either team.
