Vea among injured Bucs active for playoff game vs. Cowboys

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Nose tackle Vita Vea, cornerback Carlton Davis, safety Mike Edwards and offensive tackle Donovan Smith are among several key Tampa Bay players who sat out the Buccaneers’ regular-season finale, but are active for Monday night’s NFC wild-card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Linebacker Carl Nassib and safety Logan Ryan are also in uniform, as is receiver Mike Evans, who sat out the final week of the regular season because of an illness. Earlier, the Bucs activated center Ryan Jensen from injured reserve to the active roster, a move that strengthens the offensive line.
