A day after re-signing Tiquan Underwood and cutting Preston Parker, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost receiver Sammie Stroughter to a foot injury. Stroughter had been used as a backup receiver and punt returner in the first two games. He had one catch for 14 yards and 3 punt returns for an average of 5.3 yards in the first two games of the season.
The fourth year veteran out of Oregon State also missed the first three games of his 2009 rookie season because of a broken foot and appeared in only six games last season because of a foot injury in the season opener against the Lions. Stroughter suffered the injury in last Sunday's loss against the New York Giants and after missing practice last Wednesday and Thursday, the team shut him down.
Stroughter is the latest to be placed on the injured reserve, which means that he may be able to return later in the season if his injury clears up.
Tampa Bay signed receiver Chris Owusu, who had been on the practice squad of the San Diego Chargers. Owusu is 6 foot 2 inches and is an undrafted free agent out of Stanford. At Stanford, Owusu caught 102 passes for 1,534 yards and 190 touchdowns and returned 78 kickoffs for 2,132 yards and three touchdowns.
