Buccaneers vs. Falcons Inactives: Eric Wright won't play, Falcons play starters


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not play cornerback Eric Wright today, despite his return from suspension. It's not clear why they won't play their best cornerback against a very good passing team. At least it should help their draft position. The Bucs have no other significant inscribed, having waived LeQuan Lewis yesterday to make room for Eric Wright. Who won't play anyway.

Despite a heavily filled injury report, the only significant Atlanta Falcon to miss today's game is safety William Moore. Wide receiver Roddy White will play, which implies that the Falcons will actually play their starters. They have nothing to play for and could easily pull their starters at some point.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB Eric Wright, RB Michael Smith, LB Jacob Cutrera, G Roger Allen, WR Chris Owusu, DT Corvey Irvin DT Matthew Masifilo.

Atlanta Falcons: QB D.Davis, CB C.Owens, S W.Moore, C J.Hawley, G P.Manley, G H.Gunn, DE T.Robertson
