The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Thursday that they’ve placed RB Charles Sims on injured reserve.
Sims suffered a knee injury on the opening kickoff of last week’s preseason game.
Sims, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.104 million contract before returning to the Buccaneers on a one-year contract this past April.
In 2017, Sims appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and rushed for 95 yards on 21 carries (5.9 YPC) to go along with 35 receptions for 249 yards receiving and one touchdown.
