Greetings from Seattle: Barron, Watson active
Greetings from Seattle, where the Bucs and Seahawks will kick off in just over an hour -- beautiful fall weather here at CenturyLink Field as the Bucs try to avoid going 0-8 on the season.
As expected, safety Dashon Goldson leads the list of inactive players for today's game, along with running backs Doug Martin and Jeff Demps and guard Carl Nicks, who had all been listed as being out. The other three inactives are WR Chris Owusu, G Patrick Omameh and DB Deveron Carr.
That means both rookie defensive ends, William Gholston and Steven Means, are live today, and it's a ragtag group of receivers playing behind Vincent Jackson, with Tiquan Underwood leading the way.
Safety Mark Barron and linebacker Dekoda Watson, who had been listed as questionable, are both active and starting. The Bucs will also have corner Danny Gorrer available for the first time after activating him this week from the injured reserve-designated for return list.
