The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have ruled out safety Dashon Goldson and wide receiver Mike Evans for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Both players suffered injuries during last week's win against the Pittsburgh Steelers and couldn't participate in any practices this year. Major Wright and Louis Murphy should replace them.

Lovie Smith said today that Josh McCown could possibly play if something happened to backup quarterback Mike Kafka, but he wasn't able to do much in practice this week. Defensive end Larry English was also ruled out. Michael Johnson will play, though he won't be at full strength due to a persistent ankle injury.

Starting middle linebacker Mason Foster will be listed as questionable and has a chance of playing. He was limited throughout the week and he told Roy Cummings that he feels like he could play. If he can't go, Dane Fletcher should start in his place as has happened the past few games.

Lovie Smith didn't comment on Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who played through an ankle sprain last week. He was limited in practice this week, but should suit up against the Saints.

We'll add in the full injury reports for both the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers as soon as they're out.
