Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Sunshine State battle



We're awaiting kickoff at RayJay in just a few minutes.

Coachandqb As far as the lineups are concerned, the Bucs will be without Michael Clayton (ankle), Alex Smith (ankle), Brian Kelly (groin) and Patrick Chukwurah (shoulder). Linebacker Jeremiah Trotter is inactive today, with rookie Adam Hayward apparently activated in his place.

Looks like Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew will suit up and give it a go.

Also, it looks like possible rain in the area, with gray clouds all around. But we'll be here to bring you the action nonetheless. (Okay, who are we kidding? The press box is bone dry!)

Check the comments section for more updates and analysis throughout the afternoon. See ya soon.
