The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed Anthony Gaitor on injured reserve with a hamstring injury after keeping him on the roster for the past four games. The Bucs have designated Gaitor as "designated for return", which means he could return to the regular season roster in six weeks. Unfortunately, it also means they can't use that designation for any other player this season. The second-year cornerback looked a promising slot cornerback last season, but hasn't been able to get on the field this year, and won't for the next month or so.

To take Gaitor's place, the Buccaneers promoted linebacker Jacob Cutrera from the practice squad. Cutrera was signed off the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad last year and played 8 games, mostly as a special teamer. That should be his role this year, as long as he remains on the roster at least.

Meanwhile, the Bucs added cornerback LeQuan Lewis and defensive end Aaron Morgan to the practice squad.
