Bucs pull up a receiver from the practice squad

Mike Williams AP

Wide receiver Mike Williams is questionable for the Buccaneers because of a hamstring injury and the Buccaneers made a roster move Thursday afternoon to protect themselves in the event he can’t play.

Shortly before they are due to hand in the inactive players for Thursday night’s game with the Panthers, the Bucs announced that they have promoted wide receiver Skye Dawson from the practice squad. Dawson was on the active roster last week as well, released to make room for the arrival of running back Bobby Rainey and re-signed to the practice squad this week.

If Williams doesn’t play, it will be another blow to an offense that’s already operating without running back Doug Martin and guard Carl Nicks. Williams missed Week Five with the hamstring issue, but returned to catch four passes in last week’s loss to the Falcons.

The Bucs cut defensive end Trevor Scott to make room for Dawson on the 53-man roster.

    How about they pick up a new coach, team, GM, and owner.

    Chuck Noll record :

    Year 1. 1-13
    Year 2. 5-9

    Should the Steelers have fired Noll?

    Your argument is irrelevant. Schiano took a decent team, had his GM stack it with more players AND THEN proceeded to lose the locker room, enrage a fan base and turn into the biggest tool in football.

    Side note, HOW DARE YOU COMPARE SCHIANO TO NOLL?

    Bucs doing all they can to stay in the hunt for first pick in the 2014 draft. They’re being careful to not let the panthers hand them a victory and blow it.

    @bolt

    Funny how you know so much about the Bucs living in California.
    I, on the other hand, live in Tampa and thus am disadvantaged versus your firsthand info.

    And btw…… You don’t set the rules of comparison.
