There’s at least one running back benefiting from all the injuries in the Tampa Bay backfield.
Former Missouri running back Russell Hansbrough has been promoted to the Buccaneers 53-man roster for Monday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
The #Bucs have placed Charles Sims on IR & are promoting rookie Russell Hansbrough from the practice squad, per team.

The Buccaneers will be without Doug Martin and Charles Sims, the team’s top two running backs. Former Auburn running back Peyton Barber could also get some carries for the Buccaneers on Monday night. Hansbrough rushed for over 2,000 yards in his time at Missouri.
Hansbrough’s Tigers were on a bye last week. The Tigers take on Florida on Saturday.
