Falcons & Buccaneers inactives: Julio Jones, Darqueze Dennard won’t play

The team will be without some key starters on Sunday.

We are less than 30 minutes from kickoff as the Atlanta Falcons host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This will mark the first meeting between the two divisional opponents as they will also play again in week 17, two weeks from now.

This will overall be a tough game, and it doesn’t help that Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady has a 6-0 record against the Falcons, but perhaps that streak ends today?

Falcons inactives:

  • WR Julio Jones
  • RB Qadree Ollison
  • CB Darqueze Dennard
  • S Ricardo Allen
  • T John Wetzel
  • DT Marlon Davidson

We knew that Jones, Allen, and a few other would be inactive this week as they continue to deal with injuries. Jones has a lingering hamstring injury which has only allowed him to suit up for nine games this year while Allen has a concussion. A positive though, starting left guard James Carpenter returns to action, he’s missed time with a groin injury.

Buccaneers inactives:

  • QB Ryan Griffin
  • K Greg Joseph
  • TE Antony Auclair
  • WR Justin Watson
  • DL Khalil Davis

Not too many key names missing for the Buccaneers on Sunday.
