Bucs DT Frank Okam will line up with two ex-Longhorns in Roy Miller and Tim Crowder.
Defensive end Michael Bennett will likely see some time at the three technique defensive tackle position on Sunday versus Detroit, but newcomer Frank Okam will likely get the start in favor of Gerald McCoy, who is out for the year with a torn biceps.

Bucs defensive tackle Frank Okam just arrived in Tampa Bay a month ago, but has quickly ascended from being a practice squad player to an active roster member to a potential starter on Sunday at three technique in place of the injured Gerald McCoy. The 350-pound Okam is a natural run stuffer who will likely see action on first and second downs to help stop the Lions' running back duo of Jahvid Best and Maurice Morris before giving way to Michael Bennett on pass-rushing downs.
