Biggs: Sears on reserve list, Bucs make other moves

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hopeful that guard Arron Sears can be a building block for the future on their offensive line, but they are going to have to wait to test him out until next season. Sears was placed on the reserve/non-football list today, two weeks after he reported to the team.

That means that Sears will not be able to practice with the team for the remainder of the season, but he will be allowed to work out at the team’s facility, and that’s important as his time away—he left the Bucs in the spring with psychological issues—led him to get out of shape.

Now, provided things go well, he should be ready to roll at the start of the offseason program. They were not the only moves by the Bucs today. Punter Dirk Johnson and cornerback Torrie Cox were both placed on injured reserve. Johnson pulled a hamstring in Sunday’s loss at Atlanta and Cox suffered a hip injury.

Cornerback Brandon Anderson was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster to fill one of the roster openings.
