Every week we bring you all the inactives from the 1 p.m. ET games in one post, constantly updated with the latest information.
The Saints and Buccaneers will both be missing key pieces from their offenses in Sunday’s game at the Superdome.

The injuries come at the worst possible time for Los Angeles, which was already missing center Corey Linsley because of a knee issue, wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) and cornerback J.C. Jackson (ankle).
