The Buccaneers activated cornerback Aqib Talib Tuesday and released seventh-round draft pick, defensive end Erik Lorig, to make room on the roster. Talib missed the season opener while serving a one-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

Talib will return to practice Wednesday as the Buccaneers prepare for their first divisional opponent, the Carolina Panthers.

E.J Biggers, who rebounded from a shaky first half against the Browns to grab a key interception late in the game in place of Talib, will still see the field, as he won the nickel corner job in the preseason.

The Buccaneers allowed 236 passing yards to Jake Delhomme and the Browns on Sunday, including a 41-yard touchdown to Mohamed Massaquoi.

Meanwhile, it is unclear who the Buccaneers will face at quarterback in Week 2.

Matt Moore suffered a concussion late in the Panthers’ Week 1 loss to the Giants, and Jimmy Clausen will get the start if Moore is unable to go. He is listed as day-to-day.

The Buccaneers travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers Sunday at 1 p.m. EDT.
