    Chaz Green's ongoing back issues finally landed him on IR. Already having a backup on the roster in , Dallas used the roster opening to promote Zach Moore from the . He's listed at 6'6″ and 290 pounds, so he could be used inside our out depending on need.

    • LB Lavonte David (hamstring) – LP

    Clearly, the Bucs are doing very well on the front. They will be without their starting , Demar Dotson, however.
