Bullough will start at middle linebacker in Sunday's Week 15 tilt against the Ravens with Adarius Taylor (personal) inactive, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The Bucs are in dire straits in the middle with Taylor unavailable, considering Kwon Alexander (knee) and Kevin Minter (calf) are already on injured reserve. At least Bullough ha starting experience this season, with his most recent run with the first unit having come in a three-tackle effort across 32 snaps against the 49ers in Week 12.
Bullough will log a second straight start in place of Lavonte Davis (knee) on Sunday against the 49ers, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The second-year linebacker logged a pair of solo tackles against the Giants in David's stead in Week 11, and he'll get another crack at a starting assignment Sunday. Bullough will have a challenge on his hands in pass coverage, considering tight end George Kittle will likely be even more involved than usual with the 49ers down both Marquise Goodwin (personal) and Pierre Garcon (knee) in the receiving corps.
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.
