When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Seattle Seahawks in hostile territory on Sunday afternoon, they will be without a key member of their highly-paid secondary. Starting free safety Dashon Goldson has been ruled out for the team, which will limit the Buccaneers talent in the defensive backfield and open things up for Russell Wilson to have a field day.
From Scott Smith of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers official website:
S Dashon Goldson did not accompany the team to Seattle. He will not play tomorrow.

The Buccaneers were already out-manned in this match up, so the loss of Goldson will make it that much tougher to slow down the Seahawks offense and come away with their first win of the season.
Seattle should be able to handle the Buccaneers in Week 9, but they need to be careful about overlooking the opponent and suffering a brutal upset loss.
However, if Seattle is focused, this game could get ugly.
