Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports that E.J. Wilson will head to injured reserve with a ruptured achilles tendon. Wilson sustained the injury late in the loss against the New England Patriots, and is the second Buccaneer to be placed on IR this preseason, after WR Raymond Webber was lost for the season with a hamstring injury. 

E.J. Wilson is a defensive tackle/defensive end hybrid who has mostly played 3-technique defensive tackle for the Buccaneers this preseason, and has looked decent doing so. With Roy Miller and Brian Price both recovering from injuries, this makes the depth at defensive tackle even thinner. 

The Bucs signed John McCargo to replace E.J. Wilson. McCargo was a first-round pick in 2006 for the Buffalo Bills, but never lived up to his draft status. He has appeared in 40 games, starting one game and recording 2.5 sacks, all of those in the 2007 season. It's very unlikely McCargo makes it to the regular season
