Buccaneers roster moves: Cody Grimm, Jeremy Trueblood to IR

Larry French

Safety Cody Grimm suffers a season-ending injury for the third year in a row. He is joined on injured reserve by tackle Jeremy Trueblood.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed safety Cody Grimm and tackle Jeremy Trueblood on injured reserve Tuesday, ending their 2012 seasons.

Grimm, a former All-American at Virginia Tech, was drafted by the Buccaneers in 2012 and will miss the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury originally suffered in Week 9. It marks his third season-ending injury in a row. Trueblood, a free agent at the end of the season, did not have his injury announced by the team. He was originally drafted by Tampa Bay in the second round out of Boston College in 2006, and has played 100 career games in Tampa.

The Buccaneers also claimed wide receiver David Gilreath off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers to fill one of the roster spots. Gilreath has played in three games, returning two punts for Pittsburgh this season.

The team has also released guard Chris Scott from the practice squad and signed safety Sean Baker in his stead.
