TAMPA, Florida – Bookers in Tampa Bay will not be forced to start two recruits against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Bucks coach Bruce Arians said starting cornerback Carlton Davis will play, seeing his first action since suffering a hamstring injury two weeks ago in the Seattle Seahawks warm-up.

The Arians said starting safety Justin Evans, who underwent Achilles / ankle surgery in October, would undergo surgery on the other leg after his rehabilitation.
