With Mike Evans and Scotty Miller dealing with hamstring injuries and being uncertain that either will be to be able to play on Sunday in Detroit, the Buccaneers have promoted wide receiver Ishamael Hyman from the practice squad. To make room for Hyman on the 53 man roster, the Buccaneers have placed RB T.J. Logan on Injury Reserve.

He later signed with the Cleveland Browns and sustained an injury(concussion) in the preseason. He signed with Tampa in week four. He will join three James Madison University Alumni on the buccaneers’ active roster: G Aaron Stinnie, OL Earl Watford, and T Josh Wells.
