The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have promoted tight end Danny Noble from the practice squad to the active roster and cut running back Peyton Hillis, according to a league source.

A former Cleveland Browns starter, Hillis hasn't been playing with Doug Martin, Brian Leonard and Mike James utilized in the backfield.

And they needed the depth at tight end with tight end Tom Crabtree (ankle) and Luke Stocker (hip) dealing with injuries.

The 6-foot-5, 248-pound Noble made the roster last season as an undrafted rookie free agent from Toledo.

Noble played in four games before being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring issue.

During the preseason, Noble caught five passes for 43 yards.
