Date:

Bucs WR Louis Murphy (knee) will not be activated off the PUP list.

The deadline was Monday after Murphy returned to practice three weeks ago. He suffered a setback shortly after returning, however, and will spend the entire season on the PUP. Signed for $2 million next season, Murphy will likely get a shot in camp to earn a roster spot.

Louis Murphy (knee, PUP) suffered a setback in practice last week.

Coach Dirk Koetter said it's not a new issue with Murphy's surgically-repaired knee. Murphy didn't practice Wednesday and is in doubt for Week 8.
Wed, Oct 26, 2016 03:43:00 PM

Bucs WR Louis Murphy (ACL, PUP) returned to practice Monday.

The Bucs now have 21 days to activate him off the PUP list. With Vincent Jackson struggling and not much else on the depth chart behind Mike Evans, Murphy could have a role this season.
Mon, Oct 17, 2016 10:49:00 AM

Bucs placed WR Louis Murphy (ACL) on the reserve/PUP list.

Murphy was the Bucs' No. 3 receiver before tearing his ACL last season. The Bucs are low on bodies behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, but there's no guarantee Murphy carves out a role if he's able to return in 2016.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 05:47:00 PM

Bucs placed WR Louis Murphy (ACL) on the active/PUP list.

Murphy was expected to be ready for camp. Alas. A longer than expected absence could create an opening for second-year pro Kenny Bell at the No. 3 receiver spot.

Louis Murphy woke up early this past Saturday morning and found himself locked inside Flagler Museum after attending a wedding there the night before.

Murphy was at the wedding of college teammate and current Bears WR Deonte Thompson. He apparently had too much to drink, walked out to the courtyard, passed out on a set of stairs, woke up and everyone had left. He broke a small window at the museum to get out and call the police for assistance. Murphy isn't being charged with a crime, but it's a funny story nonetheless.

Louis Murphy (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Six months into his ACL rehab, Murphy shouldn’t see more than limited OTA work. He’ll compete for a role behind Mike Evans/Vincent Jackson if he avoids setbacks. Kenny Bell is the favorite to open the season as Tampa’s No. 3 receiver.
Sat, May 21, 2016 04:21:00 PM

Bucs WR Louis Murphy (injured reserve) underwent surgery on his torn right ACL Thursday.

It's been nearly four weeks since Murphy went down. Going on 29, Murphy will be questionable for Week 1. His $1.5 million 2016 salary is reasonable, but it's still possible he's asked to take a pay cut, or is simply cut loose.
Thu, Nov 19, 2015 05:50:00 PM

Bucs No. 3 WR Louis Murphy confirms he has a torn right ACL, and will miss the rest of the season.

The seven-year veteran is headed to injured reserve. His loss thrusts UDFA Donteea Dye into No. 3 duties, and ups for the urgency for Austin Seferian-Jenkins' (shoulder) return. Due $1.5 million next season, Murphy turns 29 in May. It's quite possible he'll get released ahead of the new league year.
Mon, Oct 26, 2015 03:33:00 PM

Pewter Report reports the Bucs believe Louis Murphy's knee injury is a torn ACL.

It sounds like the Bucs' No. 3 receiver is done for the season. Murphy's absence would thrust UDFA Donteea Dye into No. 3 duties behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. Austin Seferian-Jenkins' (shoulder) return can't come soon enough for the Bucs.
Mon, Oct 26, 2015 02:31:00 PM

Louis Murphy exited the Buccaneer's Week 7 game against the Redskins with a knee injury and will not return.

Murphy injured himself at the end of a 29-yard catch early in the first quarter. He was spotted on crutches in the locker room after the game. Murphy's absence will open up even more targets for Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans.
Sun, Oct 25, 2015 01:40:00 PM

Louis Murphy caught 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards in Tampa Bay's Week 4 loss to the Panthers.

With 25 percent of the season in the books, Murphy is on pace for 36 catches and 676 yards. We'd take the under on the latter.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 05:20:00 PM

Louis Murphy caught 3-of-6 targets for 61 yards in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Texans.

Murphy actually out-produced Vincent Jackson, out-targeting him 6-4 and out-gaining Jackson 61-40. Mike Evans hogged nearly half (17) of Jameis Winston's 36 pass attempts. Murphy is the Bucs' big-play threat as the No. 3 receiver.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 06:16:00 PM

Louis Murphy managed 82 yards on three catches in Week 2 against the Saints.

Murphy was left wide open for 54-catch against broken coverage. His only other notable play was a pass interference call in the end-zone. Murphy is locked in as the Bucs' No. 3 receiver behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.
