Bucs-Bears Inactives: Martin Returns

RB Doug Martin will suit up for the first time since Week Two, and the Bucs' defense also welcomes back starting DT Clinton McDonald.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears named their game-day inactives on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET, 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week 10 contest at Raymond James Stadium. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

The Buccaneers will have RB Doug Martin in uniform for the first time since Week Two, as he has been cleared to play after missing six games with a hamstring injury. In addition, starting DT Clinton McDonald, another hamstring victim, will be back in action for the first time since Week Four. However, the Buccaneers' offensive line will get its first shake-up of the season, as starters Kevin Pamphile and Joe Hawley have been ruled out. Rookie Caleb Benenoch will step in to replace Pamphile at left guard while veteran Evan Smith will take over at center for Hawley.

The Bears are feeling the benefits of a bye week, as starting guards Kyle Long and Josh Sitton are returning after missing the team's Week Eight win over Minnesota. However, they will be without two of their top cornerbacks in Bryce Callahan and Deiondre' Hall.
