Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Placed cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury, which has ended his season. Hargreaves is in his third season with the Bucs after being drafted No. 11 overall in 2016 out of UF. He also suffered an injury-hit season last year as he played just nine games in large part due to a hamstring injury. Over his first three seasons in the NFL, Hargreaves has appeared in just 26 games, recording 125 tackles and one interception.
