Mike Evans and Jordan Whitehead will end the season on the Injury Reserve, but injured wide receiver Chris Gdwin will remain on the active roster in the meantime. Hamstring injuries have plagued the Buccaneers since the offseason. Rookie receiver Scotty Miller was recently placed on Injury reserve, to make room for newly signed Cyril Grayson.

Additionally, wide receiver Spencer Schnell, who was signed to the practice squad just two days ago, has been activated to the 53 man roster. Bucs have also added rookie DB Herb Miller to the practice squad. Miller, out of Florida Atlantic, worked out for the Buccaneers back in mid-November as part of a 7 DB try out. None were signed.

Miller started his NFL experience in Kanas City Chiefs during this year’s minicamp as an undrafted free agent tryout. The Chiefs signed him shortly after, and he played what the Chiefs considered to be well, but inconsistent. He was cut during roster cuts before the start of the season.

In the 2019 preseason, Miller recorded 1 interception for a 67-yard return, 8 tackles, 5 of them solo tackles, and a forced fumble.

During his four seasons(2015-2018) at Florida Atlantic, he played in 49 games, recording 102 total tackles, 66 of them solo tackles, 2 INTs, 14 passes defended, and 2 forced fumbles
