TB-MIN Inactives: Goldson, Banks Return

Only two of the Buccaneers’ seven game-day inactives – LBs Brandon Magee and Jonathan Casillas – are out due to injury...S Dashon Goldson and CB Johnthan Banks return to the lineup after missing time

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

LBs Brandon Magee and Jonathan Casillas, who primarily play on special teams, are the only players on the Buccaneers' list who are out due to injury. Starting free safety Dashon Goldson returns to the lineup after missing two games and starting right cornerback Johnthan Banks is back as well after a one-game absence. Quarterback Josh McCown will also be active for the first time since suffering a thumb injury in Week Three, but Mike Glennon will make his fourth straight start at the position.

The Vikings will once again be without starting tight end Kyle Rudolph, who has missed a good portion of the season with abdomen and groin injuries. Starting right guard Vladimir Ducasse will also miss Sunday's game due to a knee injury.
