Bucs Open Spot on Active Roster

The Buccaneers waived S Isaiah Johnson on Tuesday and released DE Larry Webster from the practice squad, creating two openings that will soon be filled.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made two roster moves on Tuesday that will probably lead to two more before the team takes the practice field on Wednesday.

First-year safety Isaiah Johnson was waived from the active roster while second-year defensive end was released from the practice squad. That leave an open spot on each list, and those are generally filled quickly. The Buccaneers begin preparing for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers with a practice on Wednesday afternoon.

Johnson was promoted from the Buccaneers' practice squad before their Week Five game against the New England Patriots, as the team was dealing with injuries to safeties Keith Tandy and T.J. Ward. Both Tandy and Ward were active for last Sunday's game in Buffalo, while Johnson was one of the team's seven inactive players. Prior to that, Johnson played in two games against New England and Arizona and contributed three special teams tackles.

Webster spent two weeks on Tampa Bay's practice squad. A fourth-round draft pick in 2014, he previously spent time in Detroit and Carolina and got into one game last year with the Panthers.
