Grimm, Hartley placed on injured reserve


TAMPA, Fla. -- I’m out at One Buccaneer Place to gather some preview material for Monday night’s game with the Colts.

But first, let’s log in a few roster moves that are not big surprises. The Bucs just formally announced safety Cody Grimm has been placed on the injured reserve list. He injured his knee in Sunday’s game. The Bucs filled Grimm’s roster spot by promoting tight end Collin Franklin from the practice squad. They also signed offensive lineman Zane Taylor to take Franklin’s spot on the practice squad.

Also, the Saints reportedly placed kicker Garrett Hartley on the injured reserve list. Hartley suffered a hip injury in the preseason. That means veteran John Kasay, who was signed as a temporary fill-in, will remain as the team’s kicker. Kasay got off to a rough start in the preseason, but has kicked well through the first three games of the regular season.
