The Buccaneers may be without defensive end Da'Quan Bowers (not injury related) and cornerback LeQuan Lewis (knee), who are listed as questionable. Offensive tackle Jamon Meredith (ankle), defensive tackle Roy Miller (head), defensive end Michael Bennett (shoulder) and cornerback Anthony Gaitor (hamstring) are listed as probable.
The Saints will be missing at least five players. Cornerback Corey White (knee), running back Chris Ivory (hamstring), offensive tackle Zach Strief (ankle), safety Malcolm Jenkins (hamstring) and offensive tackle Charles Brown (knee) all are listed as out. Jenkins has started 13 games for New Orleans this season and has 94 tackles; Strief has started 10 games at tackle.
These two teams will play at 1 p.m. on Sunday in the Superdome. The Bucs are trying to end a three-game losing streak that has them below .500 and falling out of playoff contention.
