As expected, the Bucs placed receiver Maurice Stovall on injured reserve. Stovall broke his right arm in Sunday's game against the 49ers. Also, the team released tight end Keith Heinrich from the 53-man roster and promoted two receivers from the practice squad: Chad Lucas and Brian Clark. With the loss of Stovall, the Bucs are pretty inexperienced at receiver behind Joey Galloway, Ike Hilliard and Michael Clayton.
Heinrich and receiver Julius McClellan were signed to the practice squad.
