Report: Buccaneers to put Hargreaves on IR
Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports / Reuters

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will put cornerback Vernon Hargreaves on injured reserve after he reportedly suffered a potentially season-ending shoulder injury in Week 1, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

It's unclear if Hargreaves will be able to return this year, but he'll be forced to miss at least eights weeks after being placed on IR.

The 23-year-old will hit IR for the second straight season after missing seven games last year due to a hamstring injury.

Tampa Bay's other starting corner, Brent Grimes, missed the team's season opener with a groin injury. If he's unable to return against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bucs could be forced to start two rookies in Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart on Sunday.
