The Buccaneers and Saints will be short a few players each on the line of scrimmage. Bucs left guard Carl Nicks has been dealing with a toe injury and won't be able to play, and the Saints will be missing defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley.
The Saints started off the season 1-0 with a win over the Falcons, while the Bucs are still searching for their first win of the season. Tampa Bay may have a tough time getting its running game going without Nicks' services in the interior of the offensive line.
Here is a full list of inactive players for Sunday's game.
Buccaneers inactives: QB Dan Orlovsky, CB Michael Adams, RB Peyton Hillis, G Carl Nicks, TE Tom Crabtree, DE William Gholston and DE Steven Means.
