Injuries galore



The Bucs placed linebacker Antoine Cash on injured reserve today after he suffered a major left knee injury Saturday against the Jaguars. The Bucs also placed rookie free agent Sam Olajubutu -- a linebacker from Arkansas -- on IR after he suffered what is believed to be a torn Achilles tendon in pregame warmups. Both players will miss the season.

In other injury news, cornerback Phillip Buchanon was wearing a soft cast on his wrist and will miss at least a few days of work, according to Jon Gruden. Also in the secondary, rookie safety Tanard Jackson has a strained hamstring and will miss at least a couple days, Gruden said.

Lastly, guard Jeb Terry has an unspecified ankle injury and is expected to miss a significant amount of time based on his inability to walk without aid. He is using crutches after going down against Jacksonville.
