TB-BAL Inactives: Evans & Jackson Cleared

The Bucs’ starting WR duo of Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson was limited all week and questionable for Sunday’s game, but both are good to go...LB Mason Foster also makes his return after three weeks out

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

While the Bucs do have five players who are out due to injury in Week Six, they are pleased to be getting wide receiver Mike Evans and linebacker Mason Foster back on the field. Evans missed one game after suffering a groin injury in Pittsburgh in Week Four while Foster hasn't played since sustaining a shoulder injury in the Buccaneers' last home game in Week Two. Evans' fellow starter at wideout, Vincent Jackson, was also questionable for Sunday's game due to a rib injury but will start as usual.

The Ravens will be without their starting left tackle, Eugene Monroe, for the third straight week. Undrafted rookie James Hurst will start in his place. The Ravens will also be without defensive linemen Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan due to injuries.
