The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have a few new faces make their season debut today against the Kansas City Chiefs. Rookie defensive lineman Khalil Davis is active today and could see some playing time. The Buccaneers’ sixth-round pick this year could be rotated in the defensive tackle rotation this afternoon.
Second-year cornerback Herb Miller III was elevated to the active roster from the practice squad this week and could see some playing time on special teams.
So Bucs rookie defensive lineman Khalil Davis is active for the first time and can make his NFL debut today vs. Chiefs. Same for CB Herb Miller, elevated from the practice squad for today's game.

Miller was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs on May 7, 2019. The Chiefs waived him on August 31, 2019. Tampa Bay would then sign him to the practice squad on December 18, 2019. Miller signed a reserve/futures contract on December 30, 2019.
Another note to add here is that rookie running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn is inactive for today’s game, leaving only LeSean McCoy as a third back option. Both Ronald Jones II and Leonard Fournette have had issues catching the ball which could point to the Buccaneers being more confident in McCoy’s abilities rather than Vaughn’s if either were to go out.
