Owusu Returns; Byham To Injured ReserveOctober 1st, 2013
Tight end Nate Byham now joins fellow tight end Luke Stocker on injured reserve, the Bucs announced today.
Tom Crabtree has yet to take a regular-season snap, so it’s fair to say the Bucs’ tight end position is in historic disarray. Rookie tight end/converted receiver Tim Wright is a not a blocker. Literally, he looks more like an NBA shooting guard than a tight end. Former New Schiano Order tight end Dallas Clark has 16 catches this season for the Ravens.
The Bucs also promoted training camp star receiver Chris Owusu to replace jettisoned Kevin Ogletree. Owusu seemed to be a lock to make the opening-day roster but was derailed by drops and an injury.
