The Tampa Bay Buccaneers go into their week ten matchup with the San Diego Chargers relatively healthy once again. They have two players listed as questionable: wide receiver Arrelious Benn and safety Cody Grimm. Both players were sizable contributors in years past, but neither has done much this season. Neither has been featured outside of special teams, but both have made their marks there. With special teams units already underperforming, losing two core players is certainly a problem.
The Chargers have bigger issues. They've listed two key players as Questionable: offensive tackle Jared Gaither and defensive end Corey Liuget. The latter has been a big part of the excellent San Diego run defense and has played all eight games. The Bucs would certainly find it easier to run the ball against the Chargers with him out of the lineup. But if San Diego misses Gaither, they'll be forced to start rookie Michael Harris at left tackle once again - and he hasn't looked great in his previous outings.
