Bucs' Brian Price, Albert Haynesworth out vs. Panthers



The Bucs are preparing for kickoff here at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, but Tampa Bay will be a bit short-handed in the trenches.

Starting defensive tackles Brian Price (ankle) and Albert Haynesworth (knee) will not play today, leaving the Bucs thin up front. The starters at defensive tackle will be Roy Miller and Frank Okam.

Both players were slowed throughout the week in practice, though Price did practice on a limited basis on Thursday.

Carolina will be without two starters in its secondary. Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn was placed on injured reserve this week and safety Charles Godfrey is out with a shoulder injury. R.J. Stanford and Jordan Pugh will start for Munnerlyn and Godfrey, respectively.
