Bucs News and Notes

November 14 – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made another roster move on Wednesday by signing LB Eugene McCaslin to their five-man practice squad. McCaslin fills the vacancy left on the Bucs' practice squad by CB Anthony Midget, who was released on Tuesday. In other news, Buccaneer Magazine has the latest on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' injury front.

Buccaneers MLB Nate Webster's rib injury is healing slower than Tampa Bay would like. Webster is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago and because of his slow recovery, the Buccaneers signed LB Eugene McCaslin to their five-man practice squad on Wednesday.

"Nate Webster is probably going to miss most of the practice week," said head coach Tony Dungy. "So, we needed to get another linebacker and Eugene is here and he'll do a good job for us."

McCaslin (6-1, 228) fills the vacant spot on Tampa Bay's practice squad, which was created when the Bucs released CB Anthony Midget on Tuesday.

McCaslin was born and raised in Tampa and played at the University of Florida for four years. He entered the National Football League as a seventh-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2000. After spending the 2000 season and most of the 2001 offseason with the Packers, McCaslin was released by Green Bay in their final roster cut down. McCaslin recently spent 10 days on the St. Louis Rams' practice squad before being released on Friday.

McCaslin will wear jersey number 56.

Because of the frequent moves Tampa Bay has made on their practice squad, Buccaneer Magazine has compiled a list of the five players currently on it.
