Bucs put Anthony Gaitor on IR, designated for return

So much for “getting there.”

The Buccaneers placed cornerback Anthony Gaitor on injured reserve, with the designated for return tag so he can return later this season.

They filled his roster spot by promoting linebacker Jacob Cutrera from the practice squad.

Cutrera played eight games with the Bucs last year, and should help on special teams.

Gaitor’s been held out of all four games with a hamstring strain, but said Monday he thought he was closer to a return.

I’m getting there,” Gaitor said, via Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times. “It’s the first day. We’re lucky we have an extra day this week. So I’ll come in [today], get some more treatment, go out and run a little bit more and then take it from there.

“My main focus was to get healthy. There’s no sense in me rushing. If I’m not healthy, I can’t help the team. And with the position I play, I have to turn and run and have quick movements. That injury is nothing to play with.”

Apparently not.

They were already carrying seven corners, so depth shouldn’t be a concern.

    What ever happened to undrafted Iowa standout Lenard Johnson whom is also from the Tampa area and I know had made the final cuts or at least I though he had. Last I heard during the pre season that he had proved himself and coach said he could help the team win ! I have not heard his name once since . Does anyone know?
