TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed defensive end Da'Quan Bowers on injured reserve and filled the roster opening by signing defensive lineman Scott Solomon.

Bowers is a third-year pro who had a disappointing season, finishing with seven tackles and one sack. He sat out last week's loss at St. Louis with a sore knee and becomes the 16th player the Bucs have placed on injured reserve this year.

Solomon was a seventh-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2012. He appeared in 13 games with the Titans as a rookie and one game this season with the New York Jets.
