Myron Lewis to Injured Reserve, Bucs claim G Hayworth Hicks

Mike Ehrmann

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made another pair of roster moves today. First, they placed much-maligned cornerback Myron Lewis on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. The third-year cornerback had barely played this season and appeared to be featured as a special teamer only, despite being a third-round pick in 2010. Lewis is a talented player, but he has never been able to put in a consistent performance on the field.

The Bucs also added guard Hayworth Hicks to the roster, claiming him off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs. Hicks was an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State this season, and has not played any games so far.

Finally, the Bucs waived wide receiver David Gilreath, who spent the past few weeks on the roster without actually playing. This gives Tampa Bay one open roster spot, which given their abysmal depth at cornerback and the loss of Lewis they're likely to fill with another cornerback.
