The Buccaneers placed DE George Johnson on injured reserve and re-signed DT John McCargo, the team announced Monday.

Johnson injured his knee in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Texans and did not return. He had two tackles in the game. He joins DT Gerald McCoy as Buccaneers D-linemen on I.R.

The Bucs signed McCargo last week, but then cut him when they signed DT Albert Haynesworth. A former first-round pick, McCargo spent training camp with Tampa.
