Ledbetter has spent the entire season on Tampa Bay's practice squad and now finally cracks the 53-man roster. The second-year defensive lineman played every game for the Lions in 2017 and recorded 14 tackles in that time. He'll serve a depth role with the Buccaneers going forward and is likely to play most of his snaps on special teams.
Updating an earlier erroneous report, it is confirmed that Tampa Bay will no currently make a move to promote Ledbetter to the 53-man roster. The Buccaneers will instead likely elect to field a rotation of depth players at the left defensive tackle position against the Steelers on Monday, with Beau Allen (foot) and Vita Vea (calf) both ruled out.
