Bullough will start at weakside linebacker in place of the injured Lavonte David (knee) on Sunday against the Giants, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Bullough has appeared in just six career games, totaling three tackles during his young career. The Buccaneers are dealing with a handful of injuries at linebacker, lending additional opportunities for an inexperienced replacement like Bullough.
Bullough played three games with the Buccaneers last season and was let go in September after suffering a foot injury. The 2017 undrafted free agent now rejoins the team following the placement of Kwon Alexander (knee) on IR, and he'll serve as a depth linebacker and special teams asset.
Bullough (foot) and the Bucs came to terms on an injury settlement Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Bullough was placed on IR prior to final roster cuts. He will now be free to latch on to another team once he gets a clear bill of health.
Bullough (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The second-year linebacker had been enjoying a strong training camp before suffering a foot injury, and he spent the last week in a walking boot, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bullough's quest for the active roster will resume next offseason, unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team and latches on elsewhere.
Bullough was promoted from the Bucs' practice squad to their active roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of Fox 13 reports.
Bullough was cut by the team prior to the regular season kicking off. The rookie will now get an opportunity to make an impression with the club as a depth linebacker, as well as a special teams contributor.
