White Returns to Active Roster as Morgan Heads to I.R.

Posted Dec 22, 2012

The Buccaneers promoted second-year DE Markus White from the practice squad to the active roster on Sunday after placing another young end, Aaron Morgan, on injured reserve


Defensive end Markus White will get another chance to play on Sundays before the end of the 2012 regular season.

 

On Saturday, the Buccaneers promoted White from their own practice squad after being forced to place another young defensive end, Aaron Morgan, on injured reserve.  Morgan has been dealing with a shoulder injury since Week 11 and had been listed as doubtful on the Bucs’ Week 16 injury report.

 

White has already had one stint on the Bucs’ active roster in October, and before that he spent three weeks on the Washington Redskins’ 53-man crew in September.  He was also briefly promoted to Tampa Bay’s active roster in November but then released before Sunday in order to make room for the waiver-claim pick-up of DT Matthew Masifilo.  White returned to the Bucs’ practice squad a few days later.

 

The 6-4, 264-pound White played his college ball in-state with the Florida State Seminoles before he was drafted in the seventh round by the Redskins in 2011.  He got into two games as a rookie for Washington and went back to camp with the Redskins this summer, but started the regular-season on Tampa Bay’s practice squad.  The Redskins signed him back off that unit but then released him at the end of September and he returned to Tampa.

 

Originally a seventh-round pick of the Redskins in 2011, White appeared in two games for Washington as a rookie.  In three seasons at Florida State, he racked up 131 tackles, 11.0 sacks and 28.5 tackles for loss. Known for his relentless style of play, White capped his collegiate career with a senior season in which he contributed 64 tackles, 8.0 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss. He hails from West Palm Beach.

 

Morgan, who joined the Bucs’ practice squad in October and was promoted to the active roster in Week Nine, played in seven games and had one tackle plus an additional stop on special teams.
