After missing last week's game against the Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman is active Sunday for their matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Freeman suffered a minor setback with his shoulder on Friday but nevertheless, he has been cleared to play and will get the start, relegating Josh Johnson to backup once again. Micheal Spurlock is active for the first time in over a month, and is listed in his typical wide receiver role but will certainly be an emergency third option at quarterback, with Rudy Carpenter inactive again.
On defense, the Bucs will be without cornerback Aqib Talib who was deactivated before kickoff. The Bucs will have big Albert Haynesworth active at EverBank Field, but are only playing with the three active defensive ends in Michael Bennett, Adrian Clayborn, and Da'Quan Bowers.
The full list of Bucs inactives below.
QB Rudy Carpenter
WR Sammie Stroughter
