The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without their all-time leading touchdown-maker for the rest of the 2003 season.
The team announced early Tuesday evening that it had placed fullback Mike Alstott on injured reserve as a result of the neck injury he aggravated Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Players placed on injured reserve may not return to action at any point during that season.
That was one of nine moves the Buccaneers made late Tuesday afternoon involving four roster spots and one practice squad slot. Those moves are as follows:
Placed Mike Alstott on injured reserve
Waived/injured LB Jack Golden
Released WR Marvin Minnis
Released DE Ron Warner
Signed LB Vinny Ciurciu
Re-signed WR Charles Lee
Claimed S Travares Robinson off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons
Signed LB Justin Smith from the practice squad to the active roster
Signed RB Travis Stephens to the practice squad
