TAMPA – The Buccaneers continued to shake up their receiving corps Friday, but the latest change was more or less forced upon them.
A broken right foot has forced the team to place backup receiver and punt returner Sammie Stroughter on injured reserve, meaning he is lost for the season.
In response, the Bucs have signed rookie wide receiver/ return man Chris Owusu, a Stanford product who the Bucs signed off the San Diego Chargers practice squad.
Owusu first came into the league as an undrafted free agent with the San Francisco 49ers. He signed on with the Chargers after being released by San Francisco.
The addition of Owusu is the third made to the receiving corps this week. On Tuesday the Bucs earlier re-signed receiver/return man Jordan Shipley, who was claimed off waivers during training camp from the Bengals but released before the start of the regular season. On Thursday they released Preston Parker and re-signed Tiquan Underwood, who was also cut before the start of the season despite leading the Bucs in pass receptions during the preseason.
