Bucs Name Cadillac Williams Starting RB
Expect all three of Tampa Bay's primary running backs to carry the ball this season, but against the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's season opener, Cadillac Williams gets the starting nod over Derrick Ward and Earnest Graham. Williams makes his triumphant return from a season-ending knee injury against Oakland in 2008.

Talib Will Play Against Dallas
Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris said that cornerback Aqib Talib will stay in the lineup. Morris said there has been nothing done to warrant in-house discipline yet because nothing has happened with Talib from a legal and league punishment standpoint.
