The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons named their game day inactives on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET, 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week 13 matchup at Raymond James Stadium. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

For the first time since Week Two, the Buccaneers' offense will have the services of second-year TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is returning from a shoulder injury. Rookie guard Ali Marpet will also step back into the starting lineup but the Tampa Bay defense will be without defensive linemen Gerald McCoy, Jacquies Smith and George Johnson.

The Falcons get starting running back Devonta Freeman back from a concussion but will once again turn to Shayne Graham for placekicks with Matt Bryant out with an injury.
