The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are already facing a must win game and now they have to do it without multiple starters. Linebacker Lavonte David will miss today’s game in Indianapolis as he deals with a groin injury while cornerback Jamel Dean is out with an ankle injury, though he’s considered week to week and may not miss significant time.

However, there were more names to keep an eye on in this one. Devin White, Carlton Davis, and Logan Hall were all questionable coming into Week 12 and were labeled “game time decisions” by head coach Todd Bowles. Defensive lineman Mike Greene was also questionable but will not play.

The Bucs also had a little bit of a scare, adding Rachaad White to the injury report Saturday with a knee injury. According to Adam Schefter, White’s knee locked up on him a little bit but there’s no lingering issue so he will suit up and play against the Colts.

The good news is the Bucs will have White, Davis, and Hall available for this one which takes a little bit of the pressure off rookie SirVocea Dennis, who will be filling in for David. Zyon McCollum will get his fifth start of the season in place of Jamel Dean.

For the Colts, they have their own issues. They’ll be without cornerback JuJu Brents and center Ryan Kelly. The loss of Brents hurts an already weak secondary while Kelly’s absence puts more pressure on Quenten Nelson to try and stop Vita Vea and the interior pass rush of the Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers did elevate wide receiver David Moore and defensive lineman Patrick O’Connor from the practice squad and both are active for this game.
