The Buccaneers have placed their second-leading receiver on injured reserve, the team announced Monday.
Wide receiver Mike Williams will miss the remainder of the 2013 season with a hamstring injury that has nagged him since Week 4. The Tampa Tribune reported Sunday that Williams had torn his hamstring.
Even if his injury were to heal before the end of the season, the Bucs previously used their allotted short-term "injured reserve/designated for return" designation on cornerback Danny Gorrer.
Williams signed a six-year, $40.25 million contract with $9.4 million guaranteed in July.
