Bucs-Chargers inactives include kick returner Arrelious Benn
The Bucs are nearing their kickoff against the San Diego Chargers, and we now have today’s inactives.
For the Bucs, receiver Arrelious Benn, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury all week, will not play. It’s not clear who will fill in for Benn on kickoff returns, which is his main function this season. Another injured Buc, safety Cody Grimm, also a special-teams standout, will be sidelined by a hamstring injury.
The remaining inactive players for Tampa Bay are running back Michael Smith, cornerback Danny Gorrer, linebackers Jacob Cutrera and Najee Goode and guard Roger Allen.
The Chargers have a key injury with starting left tackle Jared Gaither inactive because of a groin injury.
The Chargers’ remaining inactives are receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, cornerback Chris Carr, safety Brandon Taylor, linebacker Jonas Mouton, tight end Ladarius Green and linebacker Antwan Barnes.
