The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have promoted DE George Johnson to the active roster from the practice squad and waived TE Collin Franklin. They also announced that S Devin Holland has been placed on Injured Reserve with a back injury.
Johnson, who spent the previous five weeks on the practice squad this season, was on the team’s active roster for the final three games last year after spending the other 14 weeks on the team’s practice squad.
Franklin, a rookie from Iowa State, saw action in two games for the Buccaneers after being promoted from the team’s practice squad following Week 3.
Holland played in the team’s first four games recording two special teams tackles.
The Buccaneers did not announce a player to fill the one active roster spot available.
