Buccaneers' Myron Lewis placed on injured reserve

Tampa Bay has had trouble keeping its secondary healthy in 2012, and the team suffered another setback in that area on Sunday when Myron Lewis hurt a hamstring.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed cornerback Myron Lewis on injured reserve Monday because of a hamstring injury suffered during the team's Week 14 loss to Philadelphia. Lewis, who is in his third season with Tampa Bay, appeared in nine games this season and recorded six tackles.

This is the latest setback for a Tampa Bay secondary that has been depleted by injuries and suspensions. LeQuan Lewis recently suffered a knee injury, while Anthony Gaitor spent the majority of the season on injured reserve. Eric Wright started 10 games at cornerback before being suspended four games for a violation of the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.

Lewis has appeared in 29 games over the course of his Bucs career and made one start. He has 19 tackles and three pass breakups in his career.

The Bucs will try to bounce back from their last-second loss to the Eagles when they take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 15.
