Goldson misses 2nd straight game for Tampa Bay

Free safety Dashon Goldson is sitting out his second straight

game for Tampa Bay with a knee injury.

Goldson had hoped to return Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks

in the city where he was a college star at Washington, but his knee

wasn’t healthy enough. While Goldson was out, the Buccaneers did

have strong safety Mark Barron ready to start. Barron had been

questionable with a hip injury.

Backup receiver Chris Owusu was inactive after being

questionable with a foot injury. Running back Doug Martin had

already been ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Seattle did not have any players inactive who were not already

ruled out. One healthy scratch was reserve running back Christine

Michael.
