Pewter Report - [Full Article]

Bucs head coach Raheem Morris held his Monday morning press conference at One Buc Place following Tampa Bay's 20-17 overtime win in New Orleans.

Morris announced that Bucs defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson (torn ACL) and running back Earnest Graham (torn ligament in toe) would be placed on injured reserve with their respective injuries, meaning they will miss Tampa Bay's 2009 regular season finale vs. the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Bucs rookie tight end Ryan Purvis will be promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, filling one of two available roster spots on Tampa Bay's 53-man roster.
