Here are the inactive players for the week one game between the Buccaneers and Saints

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

For the first game of the season, the Buccaneers are already missing some key pieces. We know Jameis Winston is out, but he isn’t considered an “inactive” since he’s on the suspension list and isn’t officially part of the 53-man roster just yet.

Brent Grimes suffered a groin injury Friday in practice and will miss the game. First round draft pick Vita Vea hasn’t practiced in what seems like an eternity and won’t be suiting up in week one.

Here is the full list of inactive players for both teams;

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

CB Brent Grimes

DT Vita Vea

OL Alex Cappa

OL Adam Gettis

RB Ronald Jones

OL Mike Liedtke

WR Justin Watson

New Orleans Saints

WR Cam Meredith

OL Andrus Peat

DT Taylor Stallworth

DE Mitchell Loewen

CB P.J. Williams

C Will Clapp

WR Dan Arnold

It’s pretty surprising that the Buccaneers made Ronald Jones a healthy scratch, but given how much he struggled in the preseason and that his pass catching isn’t a huge factor, RoJo appeared to be expendable for this game.

Carlton Davis is starting in place of Brent Grimes.
