Bucs will have to turn to depth at LB


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just announced linebacker Quincy Black has been placed on injured reserve.

Black endured a helmet-to-helmet hit in Sunday’s victory against San Diego. Although coach Greg Schiano said tests indicated no spinal damage, Black was experiencing some complications in his left arm.

Adam Hayward filled in for Black after the injury on Sunday and he is a possibility to start at strong-side linebacker. But Schiano said rookie Najee Goode and Jacob Cutrera also could be considered.

The Bucs also announced they have signed defensive end Ernest Owusu and receiver Diondre Borel to the practice squad. Tight end LaMark Brown and receiver Dale Moss were released from the practice squad.
