Louis Murphy placed on IR

Buccaneers.com - [Full Article]

Louis Murphy will finish the season on injured reserve for the second straight year, but this time around it's a more disappointing ending to his campaign.

Last year, Murphy missed only the last two games, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of playoff contention, and was quickly re-signed to a new contract in the subsequent offseason. This time, Murphy will miss 10 games and an opportunity to help the 2-4 Buccaneers get back into the postseason hunt. The team officially placed Murphy on injured reserve on Tuesday after he suffered a significant knee injury in Sunday's game at Washington.

Donteea Dye and Russell Shepard are next up on the depth chart for the Bucs.
