The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins named their game day inactives on Sunday at 11:30 p.m. ET, 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week Seven matchup at FedExField. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

Coming off a bye week, the Buccaneers will benefit from the return of several injured players, including starting cornerback Johnthan Banks, who returns to the starting lineup after missing two games. Starting left guard Logan Mankins will also resume his position after missing a game due to a groin injury and tight end Luke Stocker is available as well. Evan Smith is active for the first time since Week Two, as he returns from an ankle injury, but Joe Hawley will draw at least one more start at center.

The Redskins' offensive line gets a boost from the return of star left tackle Trent Williams but will still be without starting center Kory Lichtensteiger. Cornerbacks Chris Culliver and DeAngelo Hall will also miss Sunday's contest.
