TB-MIA Inactives: Cornerback Carousel

The Buccaneers will once again field a different cornerback group than the week before, with Robert McClain returning but Vernon Hargreaves inactive

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins named their game-day inactives on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET, 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week 11 contest at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

The Buccaneers' cornerback lineup continues to be a week-to-week consideration due to a variety of injuries at the position. This week, Robert McClain returns from a one-game absence but Vernon Hargreaves goes to the inactive list with a hamstring injury. McClain will likely play in the slot with Brent Grimes and Ryan Smith manning the outside.

Quarterback Jameis Winston (shoulder) will also miss a second consecutive game, with Ryan Fitzpatrick taking his spot. Rookie tight end Antony Auclair is active for just the second time this season, with the team instead choosing to deactivate tight end Luke Stocker.

The Dolphins have no players out due to injury.
