The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed cornerback Anthony Gaitor on IR and brought up Jacob Cutrera from the practice squad.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Anthony Gaitor was placed on the injured reserve due to a hamstring injury. Gaitor has been sidelined all season, but putting him on the injured reserve list and labeling him as "designated for return" allows him to return to the roster in six weeks.

The downside of that is the Bucs not being able to use the same designation on another player this season.

The Buccaneers promoted linebacker Jacob Cutrera from the practice squad to fill Gaitor's spot. Cutrera was signed off the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad last year and played 8 games, mostly as a special teams player. SB Nation blog Bucs Nation anticipates that being his role with Tampa as well.

Gaitor played in eight games for the Bucs last season and recorded five tackles. This, from Bucs Nation:

The second-year cornerback (Gaitor) looked a promising slot cornerback last season, but hasn't been able to get on the field this year, and won't for the next month or so.
