TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay receiver Louis Murphy will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The Bucs placed the seventh-year pro on injured reserve Tuesday. He appeared in six games, starting one, and had 10 receptions for 198 yards.

Murphy was injured making a catch for a 29-yard gain during the opening quarter of Sunday’s 31-30 loss to Washington.

The Bucs also released tackle Martin Wallace and cornerbacks Keon Lyn and Daxton Swanson from the practice squad.
