The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have promoted rookie cornerback Deveron Carr from the practice squad to the 53-man roster and have released fullback Spencer Larsen.
An undrafted free agent out of Arizona State, Carr helps a secondary that has been weakened by injuries.
Anthony Gaitor was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn ACL.
Danny Gorrer was placed on injured reserve/designated for return with a groin injury.
Veteran Michael Adams underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this week and won’t be back until later on in the season.
Rookie Rashaan Melvin has been limited in practice with a hamstring injury.
The good news is, the Bucs will have starting fullback Erik Lorig back in action, which is why the team was able to release Larsen.
Lorig was battling a calf injury and is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. Melvin is listed as questionable.
