Alstott night underway at RJS



The lights are on and the crowd is filing in.

The Bucs are ready for their first prime time game of the season against the 1-4 Seattle Seahawks. We'll keep you up to date with the goings on from here throughout the night, which will include the team's ceremony honoring Mike Alstott. Alstott was just introduced with the starting lineups and will serve as tonight's honorary captain. He also will be honored in a halftime tribute.

But first, a little housekeeping. For the Bucs, the most notable inactive player is WR Joey Galloway -- again. This is the fifth straight game he'll miss with a foot sprain, and this is starting to get a little ridiculous. Every week, we hear Galloway's a little closer. Then, like clockwork, we learn he's sidelined again.

Elsewhere, WR Maurice Stovall is out with a hamstring strain. FB B.J. Askew remains out with a hamstring tear.

For the Seahawks, Seneca Wallace will start at QB, with WR Bobby Engram getting the start in place of Deion Branch.
