Bucs cornerback Carlton Davis inactive, Jamel Dean to play against Titans
Bucs' Carlton Davis inactive with toe injury, Jamel Dean active. John Wolford, Matt Feiler, Ke'Shawn Vaughn among other inactives. Chris Godwin expected to play.
TAMPA -- Carlton Davis, the cornerback for the Bucs, will not be playing in today's game against Tennessee due to a toe injury. This comes after a rough performance last week where he gave up three touchdowns to the Texans. In his place, Zyon McCollum is expected to make his seventh career start.
On a positive note, starting cornerback Jamel Dean will be playing today after spending most of the week in concussion protocol. He was a full participant in Friday's practice, which is a good sign for the team.
Other players who will be inactive today include quarterback John Wolford, left guard Matt Feiler, running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn, cornerback Josh Hayes, and tight end David Wells. Feiler will be missing his third consecutive game due to a knee injury. Vaughn, who has been ineffective in his six appearances this season, will be replaced in the tailback rotation by rookie Sean Tucker.
To add depth at the cornerback position, the Bucs have elevated undrafted rookie Keenan Isaac from the practice squad. They also have the option of fifth-year veteran Dee Delaney.
In addition to the injury updates, the team announced that Chris Godwin, the receptions leader, is dealing with an illness but is expected to play today. He is only one receiving touchdown away from tying Jimmie Giles and surpassing Cameron Brate for the second-most TD catches in team history.
