Bucs ink DT McCargo

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers needed just one day to replace defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, signing defender John McCargo on Tuesday.

McCargo, 28, spent the first five years of his career with the Buffalo Bills, who drafted him out of North Carolina State in 2006. Over 40 games, he totaled 47 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks.

The Bucs revealed on Monday that McCoy was going to miss the remainder of the season with a torn biceps and was subsequently placed on injured reserve.

The second-year Oklahoma product sustained the injury to his right arm in the opening quarter of the Bucs' 27-16 loss to New Orleans on Sunday.

In related roster moves, Tampa signed running back Nic Grigsby and defensive tackle Swanson Miller to the practice squad.
