More shuffling at WR for Buccaneers
By Pat Yasinskas
The revolving door at wide receiver continues for the Buccaneers.
The team just announced it has placed receiver Sammie Stroughter on injured reserve and signed receiver Chris Owusu.
That comes in a week in which the team signed receivers Tiquan Underwood and Jordan Shipley and released Preston Parker. Stroughter was used as a backup receiver and punt returner in the first two games, but suffered a foot injury.
Owusu comes from San Diego’s practice squad after spending the preseason with San Francisco. Owusu was an undrafted free agent out of Stanford this year.
The Bucs are set with Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson as their starters and are hoping Arrelious Benn can stay healthy and be the third receiver, but the Bucs need some of the new guys to step up and provide depth.
