Ogunbowale signed to the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
The reserve running back and kick returner makes a quick return to Tampa, landing back on the practice squad after having just been released last Friday. Ogunbowale was active in Weeks 11 and 12 against the Giants and 49ers, logging just two snaps from scrimmage but 35 on special teams. The 24-year-old amassed 134 kick return yards versus New York, and he'd likely be used in the same capacity were he to be called up to the active roster again at any point over the final four games.
Ogunbowale was waived by Tampa Bay on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Ogunbowale had worked mostly on special teams for the Buccaneers. The Wisconsin product was waived to make room for wide receiver Bobo Wilson, who helps provide depth in the wake of DeSean Jackson's (thumb) absence. In addition, the Buccaneers once again have fellow running back Ronald Jones back and healthy on the roster.
The 24-year-old rookie was promoted earlier in the week from the practice squad in the wake of Shaun Wilson's placement on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, and he did a solid job filling the latter's role on kickoff returns. Ogunbowale could potentially continue serving in the same capacity for what remains of the season, although he could also find himself inactive if Jacquizz Rodgers is tabbed to fill the role once Ronald Jones II (hamstring) returns to action.
