O'Connor (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. O'Connor has been one of the team's top special teams performers this season, so his absence will be a big blow to those units. The severity of the injury remains unknown, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that it's potentially a season-ending PCL tear. O'Connor will be sidelined for at least three weeks on IR, but he will receive a second option before determining if his season is over.
O'Conner (calf) was a listed as a full participant for Tuesday's walkthrough. O'Conner missed Sunday's win over the Dolphins due to the calf injury, but it appears his absence will be limited to one game. The 27-year-old has played only one defensive snap through four games this season.
O'Connor was re-signed to the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. O'Connor made a quick return to the team facility, as he was just waived from the active roster Monday when the team needed a roster spot for running back T.J. Logan. The 2017 seventh-round pick hasn't seen regular-action since his rookie campaign, when he suited up for three games.
O'Connor has been signed to the Lions' practice squad, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports. O'Connor could be called up this season if the team experiences injury woes at defensive end.
O'Connor was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. O'Connor, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, was outplayed by undrafted rookies Alex Barrett and Jeremiah Valoaga in training camp. The Lions likely intend to stash him on their practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.
