Bucs Place FB Storer On IR

The Buccaneers have placed reserve fullback Byron Storer on injured reserve. Storer was recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in 2008, but suffered "a major setback" in his rehabilitation, according to Tampa Bay head coach Raheem Morris.

Last Wednesday after the team’s first OTAs (organized team activities) at One Buccaneer Place this month, Tampa Bay head coach Raheem Morris revealed that fullback Byron Storer had suffered “a major setback” in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that caused him to go on injured reserve last year after hurting his right knee against Carolina in Week 6. On Tuesday the Bucs sent Storer back to injured reserve.

Storer being taken off the active roster leaves the team with just two fullbacks – starter B.J. Askew and reserve Jameel Cook. This will likely prompt the Buccaneers to add another fullback prior to training camp to compete with Cook and help the unit practice without Cook and Askew taking so many reps.

Storer, who made the team as an undrafted free agent from California in 2007 after a stint on the practice squad, was mostly a special teams player for Tampa Bay. Last year, he saw some duty as a fullback, starting three games in place of the injured Askew (vs. Green Bay, at Denver and vs. Carolina), but did not record any statistics. During the 2007 season, Storer caught two passes for three yards.
