Redskins vs Buccaneers :Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins will be shorthanded due to injuries in their Week 10 matchup. Here are the inactives.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their inactives for their Week 10 matchup against the Washington Redskins.
The Bucs are going to be without some key contributors on both sides of the ball. Most notably defensive end Vinny Curry, who has been dealing with an ankle injury for a few weeks
Curry has started at defensive end opposite Jason Pierre-Paul for the entire season. Tampa Bay will be without one of their best pass rushers against a banged-up Washington offensive line.
Second-round picks Ronald Jones, and M.J. Stewart will also be out of action on Sunday. Jones didn’t log a practice all week and will have to miss this week’s game. Jones has taken small steps after a rough preseason, but injuries have halted his progress.
Stewart has had multiple, “Welcome to the NFL” moments in his rookie season, but has gotten a tremendous amount of playing time. His struggles are well-documented, but rarely do rookie slot corners get the workload that he has received.
Tampa will also be without backup interior lineman Evan Smith. Smith is both the backup right guard and center, so the Bucs will be extremely limited at those positions. Smith typically rotates in at right guard with Caleb Benenoch, but Tampa Bay won’t have that luxury today.
Washington is dealing with a number of injuries to the offensive line. A much-needed break for the Buccaneers defense that hasn’t been able to stop a nosebleed this season. Hopefully, Pierre-Paul and company can take advantage.
