Bucs-Ravens Inactives: Davis, Johnson Cleared to Play

WR DeSean Jackson and S Justin Evans remain out for Sunday's game in Baltimore and LB Adarius Taylor didn't make the trip for personal reasons, but DBs Carlton Davis and Isaiah Johnson return to action

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baltimore Ravens named their game-day inactives on Sunday at 11:30 p.m. ET, 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week 15 game at Raymond James Stadium. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

A week after getting cornerbacks Brent Grimes and M.J. Stewart back from injuries, the Buccaneers' secondary has received more reinforcements in cornerback Carlton Davis and safety Isaiah Johnson, both of whom have been cleared to play. Davis had missed the last two games with a knee injury while Johnson was sidelined for one contest due to a concussion.

Davis and Johnson had both been marked as questionable for the game on Friday's injury report. Four other Buccaneers were questionable and three of them have also been cleared to play Sunday: defensive tackle Beau Allen, tackle Demar Dotson and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. LB Adarius Taylor was the sixth player on that list and will not play after staying in Tampa to attend to a personal matter.

The Ravens will be without starting left guard Alex Lewis, who is dealing with a shoulder injury.
