The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed safety Cody Grimm and tackle Jeremy Trueblood on injured reserve and signed safety Sean Baker to the practice squad.
The Bucs also announced Tuesday that they had been awarded receiver/punt returner David Gilreath off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Grimm has appeared in nine games this season, mostly on special teams. Trueblood also appeared in nine games after losing the starting right tackle job during training camp.
Guard Chris Scott was released from the practice squad to make room for Baker.
MORE INJURY NEWS AROUND THE LEAGUE
The San Diego Chargers placed strong safety Atari Bigby on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday because of a groin injury and signed linebacker Bront Bird.
Bigby, who started all 11 games, was hurt in the first half Sunday in a 16-13 overtime loss to Baltimore.
Bird played in nine games with the Chargers in 2011 after making the squad as an undrafted rookie from Texas Tech. He was released during final roster cuts in August.
The Chargers also filled a vacancy on their practice squad by signing safety Sean Cattouse, an undrafted rookie from California.
Also Tuesday, it appeared the Chargers are headed for their second straight local TV blackout and third this season. The team says nearly 12,000 tickets need to be sold by 1:25 p.m. Thursday or the game will be blacked out in Southern California.
The Washington Redskins have kept right tackle Jammal Brown on the physically unable to perform list, giving up hope that he will play this season.
Brown was placed on PUP after surgery on a torn ligament in his left hip in August. Tuesday was the last day the Redskins could activate him to the 53-man roster.
Brown was a two-time Pro Bowler with the New Orleans Saints but missed the 2009 season after hip surgery. He was then traded to Washington, where he has struggled to stay healthy but was nevertheless re-signed to a five-year, $27.5 million deal last year.
Brown re-injured his hip while running sprints before this year's training camp. He returned to practice two weeks ago but suffered another setback a few days later.
