Injured Reserve Brimming With Talent

With just two weeks remaining in the 2010 season, the Buccaneers have amassed one-fourth of a regular season roster on their Injured Reserve.  The 13 players on the Injured Reserve list are:

50Alston, JonLBRES6'0"2356/4/19835Stanford
58Black, QuincyOLBRES6'2"2402/28/19844New Mexico
69Dotson, DemarTRES6'9"31510/11/19852Southern Mississippi
52Faine, JeffCRES6'3"2914/6/19818Notre Dame
72Gilbeaux, BrandonDERES6'3"2706/9/19870Delaware
35Grimm, CodyFSRES6'1"2032/26/19870Virginia Tech
32Huggins, KareemRBRES5'9"1985/24/19861Hofstra
75Joseph, DavinGRES6'3"31311/22/19835Oklahoma
93McCoy, GeraldDTRES6'4"2952/25/19880Oklahoma
94Moore, KyleDERES6'5"27210/25/19862USC
92Price, BrianDTRES6'1"3034/10/19890UCLA
25Talib, AqibCBRES6'1"2052/13/19863Kansas
36Jackson, TanardFSSUS6'0"2007/21/19854Syracuse

Black, Faine, Joseph, McCoy, Moore, Talib, and Jackson were opening day starters.  Grimm replaced Jackson when he was suspended by the NFL.  Huggins had started getting carries when he was injured versus New Orleans.  Price had started to earn more snaps on defense.  Alston, Dotson, and Gilbeaux went on IR before the first snap of 2010.

These 13 will be added to the end of season 53-man roster along with the 8 men on the practice squad resulting in 74 players on the offseason roster.  This means there will be only 6 open spots remaining on the offseason 80-man roster -- and a complete slate of 7 men coming in the 2011 draft.

It will be another interesting offseason!
