IRVING -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarterback Rudy Carpenter from the Cowboys' practice squad. The Bucs needed another quarterback because Byron Leftwich went on injured reserve.
Also, former Cowboys cornerback Mike Mickens was cut by the Bucs. Mickens was signed to the Cowboys practice squad on Sept. 6 but Tampa Bay picked him up on Nov. 2.
The Cowboys have no plans to replace Carpenter on their practice squad roster this week.
In case you forgot, here's the practice squad: G Travis Bright, TE Scott Chandler, DE Marcus Dixon, WR Jesse Holley, WR Manuel Johnson, CB Jamar Love and RB Chauncey Washington.
