Buccaneers Place WR Mike Williams on IR With Hamstring Injury


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have lost another player to the season ending injury bug. WR Mike Williams has been placed on the injured reserve after he announced that he tore his hamstring. He hurt his hamstring a few weeks ago, but was still out on the field trying to play. Finally, he told the Tampa paper that he tore his hamstring and now he is being placed on the IR.

Things just became that much tougher for rookie QB Mike Glennon. Glennon loses another weapon on offense with Williams gone. He already lost RB Doug Martin for a long time, likely the season and now Williams. Vincent Jackson is still on the field for the Bucs, but teams are going to put all their focus on him on defense.

The Bucs look like a really strong candidate for that number 1 draft pick in the offseason. They likely will be looking for a new head coach at the same time. Nothing seems to be going right in Tampa right now. They still are winless and players are dropping off like flies to injuries.
