Bucs Add RB Arnuad to Practice Squad

October 3 - After learning the severity of RB Warrrick Dunn's foot injury early Monday morning, the Buccaneers decided to add depth to their running back core on Wednesday by signing RB Robert Arnaud to their practice squad. In order to make room for Arnaud on the five-man practice squad, Tampa Bay released C/G Eric Thomas.

After learning starting RB Warrick Dunn will be sidelined 3-4 weeks with a sprained foot, the Buccaneers figured they had to add depth at the position and did by signing first-year RB Robert Arnaud to their practice squad.

Tampa Bay is Arnaud's fourth team since entering the league as a free agent on the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad in 2000. He was traded from New Orleans to Washington prior to the start of training camp this season.

Arnaud played his college football at Georgia, where he played in 25 games with one start. He rushed for 330 yards on 90 carries and scored three touchdowns.

In order to make room for Arnaud on the five-man practice squad, the Buccaneers released C/G Eric Thomas.
