Due to the number of injuries they have endured as of late, the Bucs were busy making moves to their roster on Tuesday.
The Bucs have called up wide receiver Ishmael Hyman from the practice squad to 53-man roster. With Mike Evans expected to miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury, and Scotty Miller missing the last two games with a hamstring injury of his own, Tampa Bay has become thin on the depth chart at receiver.

Hyman played his college football at James Madison University and went undrafted in 2018, deciding for the Orlando Apollos in the Alliance Of American Football before the league folded. Hyman signed with the Browns during this preseason before getting and was cut before the start of the regular season. Hyman has spent two stints with the Bucs this season, first signing to the practice squad in September and getting released on October 8th, but then signing again a week later on October 18th.
In another roster move, the Bucs have placed running back and returner T.J. Logan on injured reserve. Logan broke his thumb catching punts during Friday’s practice before playing the Colts on Sunday and with three games remaining in the season, his injury will not heal before the season concludes.
Logan had three rushing attempts for 10 yards and two receptions for 13 yards this season, playing primarily as a kick and punt returner. As a kick returner, Logan had a 13 returns for 271 yards, but he really made his mark on the team with success as a punt returner, taking the role after the Bucs released Bobo Wilson. In six games in that role, Logan returned 13 punts for 124 yards with an average of 9.5 yards per return and a long run of 40.
