Bucs-Cowboys Inactives: Humphries Returns

Tampa Bay's offense gets slot receiver Adam Humphries back for the team's Week 15 game at Dallas but will once again be without starting right tackle Demar Dotson.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys named their game-day inactives on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. ET, 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week 15 contest at AT&T Stadium. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

Tackle Demar Dotson was ruled out on Friday due to a concussion, which means veteran Gosder Cherilus will man the right tackle spot for the second week in a row. However, wide receiver Adam Humphries and safety Chris Conte are returning to action this week. In addition, two key members of the defense – defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and linebacker Lavonte David – have been cleared to play after being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.

The Cowboys' defense will be down a usual starter, as a back ailment will keep defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence on the sideline. In addition, cornerback Morris Claiborne, who has not played since late October, remains out with a groin injury.
