The Bucs announced on Saturday that the team has activated inside linebacker Jack Cichy from the injured reserve, replacing center A.Q. Shipley after a neck injury suffered against Los Angeles in Week 11.
After finishing both the 2018 and 2019 seasons on the injured reserve, Cichy once again found himself out of action after suffering a hamstring injury in the Bucs’ loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 5.
Now back, Cichy will join Chapelle Russell and Kevin Minter on the depth chart behind starting linebackers Devin White and Lavonte David. All 86 of Cichy’s snaps this season have come on special teams.
In addition to Cichy’s return, Tampa Bay has elevated cornerback Herb Miller and offensive guard John Molchon from the practice squad for the Bucs’ Week 12 match-up with the Kansas City Chiefs.
