Eric Wright Out For The Bucs

TAMPA, Fla. -- A Tampa Bay pass defense that already has been struggling will be without a key component Sunday.

Cornerback Eric Wright will not play against the Atlanta Falcons, coach Greg Schiano told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio on Sunday morning. Wright has been bothered by an Achilles tendon injury in recent weeks.

His absence leaves the Bucs open to all sorts of matchup problems against Atlanta receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones and tight end Tony Gonzalez. Jones is listed as questionable with an ankle injury and we’ll find out if he’s playing within the hour.

Without Wright, the Bucs have E.J. Biggers as one starter. Leonard Johnson has been productive in recent weeks and he and LeQuan Lewis are likely to be the second and third corners. The Bucs also could give Myron Lewis or Danny Gorrer some playing time.

I'll be back with the full list of inactives for both teams a few minutes after they're turned in at 11:30 a.m.

Oh man. If we dont rape them through the air something is completely wrong with our offense

We have a strange habit of the rooks , the next men up , somehow being better then their starter. I still feel great about this game. I swear though as a Falcon fan rookies make me wonder.

Just saw Matt on the field , he looks in good spirits and pumped up. I like it.
