Buccaneers Place WR Murphy, G Sweezy on Reserve/PUP List

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed receiver Louis Murphy and guard J.R. Sweezy on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, meaning they’ll be sidelined for at least the first five games of the regular season.

The team also announced Tuesday that receiver Donteea Dye (injured) and offensive lineman Joel Hale were waived. Meanwhile, linebacker Jeremiah George and safety Kimario McFadden were re-signed, two days after being among the club’s initial cuts.

Murphy is recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him part of last season. Sweezy signed with Tampa Bay in free agency and missed all of training camp after undergoing surgery for a herniated disk in his back.

Dye, who started five games as a rookie last season, suffered a hamstring injury during last week’s preseason game against Cleveland.
