Bucs News and Notes

October 24 – With two significant injuries to starting wide receivers Keyshawn Johnson and Jacquez Green, Tampa Bay signed WR Darryl Daniel to its practice squad. To make room for Daniel on the practice squad, the Buccaneers released LB Byron Thweatt. Buccaneer Magazine also has the latest news on the Bucs' injury front.

On Wednesday day, the Buccaneers had wide receivers Jacquez Green and Keyshawn Johnson listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. But even though they both have a 50 percent chance of playing this Sunday, Tampa Bay decided to add a receiver to their practice squad.

The Buccaneers signed third-year WR Darryl Daniel to its practice squad on Wednesday. Daniel (5-11, 190) played collegiately at the University of Syracuse, and entered the NFL as a undrafted free agent with the Detroit Lions in 1999 before being signed to Minnesota's practice squad during the 1999 playoffs.

Daniel participated in Carolina's camp this summer as well as on their practice squad a few weeks this season, and now joins RB Robert Arnaud, CB Corey Ivy, TE Mike Roberg and Ron Warner on Tampa Bay's five-man practice squad.

To make room for Daniel on their practice squad, Tampa Bay released LB Byron Thweatt. The Buccaneers signed Thweatt a last due to injuries that plagued the linebacker position after the Green Bay Packers game. Thweatt originally signed with the Bucs as a undrafted free agent on April 23 before being released on Sep. 2.
