Buccaneers FB B.J. Askew's season came to an end Tuesday when the team placed him on the reserve/non-football injury (NFI) list. Askew, who sustained a back/neck injury in a car accident last week, will be replaced by RB Earnest Graham. In addition, the Bucs signed CB Marcus McCauley.
Fullback B.J. Askew's season came to an end Tuesday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed him on the reserve/non-football injury (NFI) list.

Askew, who has been Tampa Bay's starting fullback since he signed with the Bucs as a free agent in 2007, sustained a neck/back injury in a car accident last week. He missed Sunday's game vs. Carolina as a result.

Askew will be replaced by running back Earnest Graham, who started in place of Askew Sunday, will take over as Tampa Bay's starting fullback.

The Bucs filled Askew's 53-man roster spot by signing third-year cornerback Marcus McCauley. He originally entered the NFL as a third-round pick with the Minnesota Vikings. The 6-foot-1, 203-pound McCauley played collegiately at Fresno State and has played in 26 games (10 starts), notching 62 tackles, 10 passes defensed.

In addition to those roster moves, the Bucs also released CB Derrick Roberson from their active roster and re-signed him to their eight-man practice squad.

Tampa Bay has one vacant spot on its 53-man roster, but the Bucs are expected to fill it by Wednesday.
