Late Sunday inactives: Bucs could have power running advantage


It doesn't help the struggling Denver offense that receivers Eddie Royal and Demaryius Thomas will be out against the Chargers, but that's where things stand. Also, watch for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to exploit the absence of NT Isaac Sopoaga by running LeGarrette Blount right up the middle. The Patriots will be without Danny Woodhead and Julian Edelman, leaving all the "grittiness quotient" up to Wes Welker. Fortunately, Welker can handle it.

As always, thanks to Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog for getting these up so quickly!
