Darden (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Cowboys.

Darden thus will be in street clothes to start his career, like recent Bucs rookie wide receivers Tyler Johnson (in 2020 as a fifth-rounder) and Scotty Miller (in 2019 as a sixth-rounder). A fourth-round pick himself, Darden may take a few games to break through and be active on game days.
