Bucs activate Sean Murphy-Bunting from IR, elevate Breshad Perriman
Ahead of Monday night’s home game against the New York Giants, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers activated cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting and long snapper Zach Triner from injured reserve.
Tampa Bay also elevated wide receiver Breshad Perriman to the active roster. All three players are eligible to play Monday.
Murphy-Bunting hasn’t played since he suffered a dislocated right elbow during the season opener in September against the Dallas Cowboys. In his first two NFL seasons, Murphy-Bunting played all 32 games, starting 23, and recorded 116 tackles, 11 pass breakups and four interceptions — including one he returned for a touchdown as a rookie.
Notably, he grabbed an interception in each of the Buccaneers’ first three playoff games in 2020 on their way to a Super Bowl victory.
Triner also has not played since Week 1 due to a torn tendon in his finger. Like Murphy-Bunting, Triner did not miss a game in his first two seasons, both with Tampa Bay.
Perriman has made one appearance in 2021 for the Bucs in his second stint with the team. He participated in two snaps in their Week 9 loss to Washington.
The Bucs signed Perriman in November after he was waived by the Chicago Bears. He never saw the field for Chicago after previous stops with the Baltimore Ravens (2016-17), Cleveland Browns (2018), Buccaneers (2019) and New York Jets (2020).
