LB McCoy released, WR Clark promoted
The news gets worse for reserve LB Matt McCoy.
After his arrest early this morning for allegedly driving under the influence, McCoy now has been released from the active roster to make room for WR Brian Clark, who is being promoted from the practice squad.
McCoy had been playing sparingly as a backup at middle linebacker and weak-side linebacker. But the Bucs apparently have a more pressing need at receiver, where Joey Galloway has been out for four weeks and Maurice Stovall (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday.
Clark, a Tampa native who spent one game on the active roster last season, entered the league with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2006 out of North Carolina State.
