The injury bug has swept through the defensive line of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they’ve brought in a reclamation project in an effort to provide some depth.
The Bucs added former first-round draft pick John McCargo, a bust for the Buffalo Bills as the 26th overall pick in 2006, and the hope is he will replace E.J. Wilson, who is out for the season after he ruptured an Achilles tendon, according to the Tampa Tribune.
The Bucs already had injuries up front. Brian Price, the second-round draft pick from last year, is still recovering from surgery to re-attach hamstrings to his pelvis. Roy Miller has a partially torn MCL.
It would be surprising if McCargo turns it on for the Bucs. But they just need a body at this point.
