TAMPA ― A beat-up Bucs secondary may get a boost as early as Monday night against the Saints.

Tampa Bay has activated safety Logan Ryan from injured reserve. His 21-day practice window has begun, and he can be added to the roster at any time during the next three weeks.

Ryan has not played since suffering a foot fracture in a 41-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 2.

The Bucs have several injuries to their secondary, including safety Antoine Winfield Jr., who did not finish Sunday’s game due to an ankle injury.

Cornerbacks Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting both have leg contusions. The Bucs had a bonus practice, but because they play Monday the first injury report will not be until Thursday afternoon.

Ryan, a free agent from the Giants, has played in only four games this season but has had an impact, particularly creating turnovers. He has one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
