Bucs inactives list for Week 8 at Bills

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were fortunate to have no injured players on their Week 7 inactives list, but playing football on Thursday night doesn’t usually lend to luck like that.

The Bucs have three players out due to injury, with the biggest one being defensive tackle Vita Vea — Vea won’t play due to a groin injury, which is a massive hit to Tampa Bay’s defense. Safety Kaevon Merriweather and guard Matt Feiler are also inactive due to injury, and DT Deadrin Senat and S Richard LeCounte III have both been elevated to the active roster to fill in the holes left by Vea and Merriweather. G Aaron Stinnie will step in for Feiler.

Here is Tampa Bay’s inactives list:

  • #26 S Kaevon Merriweather

  • #44 RB Sean Tucker

  • #50 NT Vita Vea

  • #58 OLB Markees Watts

  • #71 OL Matt Feiler

  • #79 DL Patrick O’Connor

  • #89 TE David Wells
