Rashaan Melvin Out For The SeasonOctober 15th, 2013
The Bucs had high hopes for undrafted rookie cornerback Rashaan Melvin, but his preseason hamstring injury never recovered. He didn’t take a regular-season snap and was placed on injured reserve today.
Cornerbacks Melvin, Danny Gorrer (groin surgery) and Michael Adams (knee surgery) were all hit with serious injuries this season. Throw in Johnthan Banks’ MRSA infection and Darrelle Revis recovering from ACL surgery, it’s been a rough year for the Bucs’ secondary.
