Buccaneers Placing WR Louis Murphy On Reserve/PUP List


Buccaneers HC Dirk Koetter told reporters on Monday that WR Louis Murphy will be placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list and subsequently miss the entire 2016 season, per Greg Auman.

Last week, Koetter mentioned that Murphy suffered a setback to his surgically repaired knee.

“There was a setback, yep,” Koetter said of Murphy, via Jenna Laine of ESPN. “[It is a] different injury than his knee.

Koetter was asked if the new injury is significant to which he replied: “I don’t know what is significant and what is not, but not able to practice right now.”

Murphy opened the year on the team’s PUP list but received clearance to begin practicing a few weeks ago.

Murphy, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Raiders back in 2009. The Buccaneers signed him to a four-year, $4.75 million contract back in 2014, which includes a base salary of $1.5 million this season.

In 2015, Murphy appeared in six games for the Buccaneers and caught 10 passes for 198 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
