TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed cornerback Anthony Gaitor on injured reserve-designated for return with a hamstring strain that's sidelined him for the first four games of the season.

The Bucs (1-3) also announced Tuesday that linebacker Jacob Cutrera has been promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster to replace Gaitor.

In other moves, cornerback LeQuan Lewis and defensive end Aaron Morgan were signed to the practice squad.
