Bucs' Wilkerson and Graham out for finale
By Pat Yasinskas
The Bucs made a series of roster moves due to injuries Monday.
Defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson and running back/fullback Earnest Graham were placed on injured reserve. Graham has a toe injury and won’t be available for the season finale with Atlanta. Wilkerson has a torn ACL and could face a long rehabilitation in the offseason.
Rookie tight end Ryan Purvis has been elevated from the practice squad to fill one of the roster spots and the Bucs likely will make another move soon.
