With starting quarterback Josh McCown unable to play this week due to a sprained thumb that he suffered in last Thursday’s 56-14 loss at Atlanta, the Buccaneers promoted QB Mike Kafka from the practice squad to the active roster to back up Mike Glennon, who will start this week at Pittsburgh.
To make room for Kafka on the 53-man roster, Tampa Bay released guard Rishaw Johnson, whom it acquired in a preseason trade with Kansas City for safety Kelcie McCray.

And here we thought Rishaw was going to be a starting guard in the near future. This team is so bad we’re probably going to see a Russian style Vodka made in China starting at QB before we see the next extra point kicked.
I think I’d rather have Rishaw play quarterback then Kafka!
The release of Johnson is just another example of questionable player evaluations involving the offensive line.
