Wright has missed three games in a row and Sunday will make it a fourth. Bradley McDougald will get the start in place of Wright once again.

Bobby Rainey (wrist) practiced in full on Thursday.

It is nice Rainey is practicing, but with both Doug Martin and Charles Sims in front of him on the depth chart, he is essentially fantasy irrelevant.

Buccaneers signed DL Lawrence Sidbury.

With Clinton McDonald questionable with a hamstring injury, the Bucs just want to add some depth to the defensive line. He's not a guy to use in fantasy but he could be of some use to the team if he actually gets some defensive snaps.

Buccaneers released CB Crezdon Butler.

Butler was a part-time guy who worked mostly off special teams. He had 14 tackles in 11 games, so that should tell you everything you really need to know. If he clears waivers, the Bucs may try to re-sign him to the practice squad.

Buccaneers have released CB Crezdon Butler.

Crezdon is a great first name, but that wasn't enough of a reason for the Buccaneers to keep him around.

Update: Gerald McCoy, who was placed on injured reserve, will not need surgery on his sprained knee.

He will spend the off-season rehabilitating his knee, and should be ready to go once camp opens next summer, and again provide a steady presence on the interior of the Buccaneer defensive line.

Buccaneers place TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins and WR Louis Murphy on injured reserve.

The Bucs are going to clean up their roster here at the end of the season and start giving some of the youngsters more of an opportunity to play. Both Seferian-Jenkins and Murphy should have places on the team next year, but for now, their time on the field is up.

Buccaneers placed DT Gerald McCoy on injured-reserve.

McCoy's season is now over and while the Bucs are nowhere near playoff contention, this is going to hurt them defensively moving forward. Da'Quan Bowers is expected to fill in.

Coach Lovie Smith says DT Clinton McDonald is "getting better" from his hamstring injury.

McDonald is a part-timer dealing with a hamstring injury but it looks like he may be able to get back on the field in a limited capacity. Monitor his practice schedule this week to see, but he is not an option in IDP leagues.

Lavonte David recorded 12 tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

David is among the league leaders in tackles this season, as he now sits with 133 combined tackles (91 solo) through 14 games. As long as he remains healthy down the stretch IDP owners will want to make sure he is a staple in starting lineups as he continues to perform at a high level.
