LB Mason Foster, WR Mike Evans and S Dashon Goldson won't play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today. The three are struggling with shoulder, groin and ankle injuries, respectively. Foster should return next week, but Goldson and Evans are probably going to miss a few more games.
Replacing them will be LB Dane Fletcher, WR Louis Murphy and S Major Wright. QB Josh McCown will miss his second consecutive game, as expected, despite throwing on a limited basis on Friday. The Bucs didn't have any other surprises among their inactive players.
The New Orleans Saints will be without RB Mark Ingram and S Jairus Byrd, who was placed on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury in practice. Tackle Terron Armstead will return to play despite suffering a concussion last week.
Buccaneers inactives: LB Mason Foster, T Kevin Pamphile, G Kadeem Edwards, WR Mike Evans, S Dashon Goldson, DE Larry English, QB Josh McCown.
Saints inactives: RB Mark Ingram, FB Erik Lorig, S Jairus Byrd, WR Joseph Morgan, WR Nick Toon, LB Ronald Powell, DT Brandon Deaderick
