Bucs place Davin Joseph on IR, make other moves


As expected, the Buccaneers have cleared a roster spot by placing guard Davin Joseph on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered Friday night against the Patriots.

They made 14 other moves to get to 75 players on Monday.

Waived were running back De’Anthony Curtis, long snapper Andrew DePaola, receiver Greg Ellingson, tight end Collin Franklin, receiver Ed Gant, punter Eric Guthrie, tackle Mike Ingersoll, linebacker Brian Smith, safety Tramain Thomas, and cornerback Marquese Wheaton.

The Bucs also placed defensive end Da’Quan Bowers on the reserve/PUP list, which makes him unavailable for at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

    Losing Davin Joseph, one of the top guards in the league, hurts especially when the Bucs are in somewhat of a rebuilding phase. In the words of the illustrious ex-coach, “next man up”.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the concerns over Da’Quan Bowers’ durability are coming to fruition. There were a few weeks that this guy was discussed as being the number one overall pick two years ago.
