Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Clifton Smith, Demar Dotson added to inactives



It turns out receiver Maurice Stovall isn't the only Buc that will miss tonight's game with an injury.

Running back/returner Clifton Smith and offensive tackle Demar Dotson are also out of the lineup with their respective injuries. Smith has been battling a hamstring injury and practiced during the week, but the injury might not be completely healed. Dotson's injury is unclear.

And there are a couple more notes before we begin. Reggie Brown will start at receiver for Maurice Stovall, who is out with an ankle injury. And we're hearing tight end Kellen Winslow will be suited up but won't play. He isn't hurt but would be held out just out of an abundance of caution as he recovers from offseason knee surgery. Winslow has looked brilliant during practices, even in full-contact workouts, so there shouldn't be any concern there.

Kickoff is about 20 minutes away and I'll be back momentarily to start my live blog.
