Injuries force several roster moves for Bucs



A couple of previously unreported injuries have caused a minor shakeup of the Bucs' roster.

On Sunday, it appears defensive tackle John McCargo suffered a triceps injury that resulted in his being placed on injured reserve today. Also, linebacker Jacob Cutrera, a special-teams contributor, also was placed on injured reserve with an unspecified head injury.

The Bucs immediately filled one of their spots, adding defensive tackle Frank Okam from practice squad. Okam had been on the active roster until two weeks ago. The Bucs likely will fill the remaining open roster spot in the next day or so. The team also has three vacant practice squad spots after releasing running back Nic Grigsby from the practice squad and promoting safety Ahmad Black to the active roster on Friday.
