TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed special teams
standout Torrie Cox on injured reserve and signed wide receiver
Chas Gessner Wednesday.
Cox was a reserve cornerback and Pro Bowl special teams
alternate last season. He injured his left knee during last
Sunday's 24-23 loss to Jacksonville.
Gessner was with Tampa Bay during training camp the past two
summers. He was waived with an injury settlement in September and
became eligible to re-sign with Tampa Bay on Monday.
The Bucs also waived receiver Chad Lucas, who played in his
first NFL game against Jacksonville. Meanwhile, cornerback Darrell
Hunter was signed to the practice squad, replacing receiver Derrick
Hamilton, who was released.
