We're going to see a lot of backups play today. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won't play their starters against the Washington Redskins, although there's a chance that Darrelle Revis gets some limited game action. Not a very large chance, though.
Mike Glennon is expected to play most of the game, which would give us another extended look at the rookie who has been mildly impressive this preseason. The second stringers have a lot of players fighting for their job, with William Gholston, Keith Tandy, Rashaan Melvin and Chris Owusu being a few of the crucial players on the roster bubble. Who will earn themselves a spot on the roster today?
