Bucs place a pair on injured reserve

AP

The Buccaneers found themselves with an open roster spot on Monday thanks to cornerback Eric Wright’s suspension and injuries opened up two more of them on Tuesday.

The team announced that safety Cody Grimm and tackle Jeremy Trueblood are headed to injured reserve. Grimm has missed two of the last three games with a hamstring injury and Trueblood injured his shoulder in Sunday’s loss to the Falcons.

Trueblood started the year as the starting right tackle, but was replaced by Demar Dotson after the first game of the season. Grimm has played a reserve role in nine games this season after starting 12 times in his first two years with the team.

Tampa got to work filling the empty roster spots by claiming wide receiver David Gilreath off of waivers from the Steelers. Gilreath, who had one catch in three games, was waived to make room for guard David DeCastro on the active roster in Pittsburgh.

  1. Ok….. and how dose picking up a wide receiver help fill in the secondary or Oline? We should be looking for help in the secondary for sure. Peyton Manning should get 450 yards sunday if the Bucs coaching staff can’t come up with something. GO BUCS!

  2. Bucs need to sign Jason Babin/ claim him off waivers. His presence and pass rushing abilities will help us rush the QB and help the pass rush and with that the coverage becomes a little easier for the backs we do have still. Also put Barber back at corner.

  3. people who have been suggesting to move Barber back to corner really grind my gears!!! Barber is playing at a pro bowl level at safety… The bucs are getting burnt underneath, not up top

  4. Jason Babin is a good player but not a great character guy. If Raheem was still coach this would have already happened, but no chance Schiano puts up with any crap.

  5. “people who have been suggesting to move Barber back to corner really grind my gears!!! Barber is playing at a pro bowl level at safety… The bucs are getting burnt underneath, not up top”

    Firstly, not a single person can get “burnt on an underneath” pass. Secondly, the Bucs have given up the most deep passes in THE LEAGUE! Learn how to watch football, then you may post on these sites. ….. Raheem is it you posting on here again?
