Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy Confirms He’s Out For Year With Torn ACL

Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy confirmed to Josina Anderson that he does, in fact, have a torn ACL, which will subsequently cost him the remainder of the 2015 season.

Minor setback for a major comeback,” Murphy said of the bad news.

Murphy was the Buccaneers No. 3 receiver, so this will open the door for some of the team’s other receiving options. Although, it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see them bring in some players for tryouts this week.

Murphy, 28, is in the second year of his four-year, $4.75 million contract that included $350,000 guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $1.5 million for the 2016 season.

His 2015 season ends with him appearing in six games and recording 10 receptions for 198 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Buccaneers.
