Buccaneers without Gerald McCoy, Clinton McDonald, Robert Ayers Monday night

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive linemen Gerald McCoy, Clinton McDonald and Robert Ayers are all inactive for Week 5 versus the Carolina Panthers on Monday night.

What It Means:

This is in addition to both starting running backs being out in Doug Martin and Charles Sims, as well as wide receiver Cecil Shorts, tight end Luke Stocker and offensive guard Caleb Benenoch. Jameis Winston is going to have his work cut out for him on Monday night.

The Buccaneers entered the weekend ranked a surprising eighth in Adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points per play, but that'll be hard to sustain without some healthy and able bodies up front.
