Tampa Bay Buccaneers Promote Linebacker to Active Roster

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have promoted J.J. Russell to their active roster. 

This is a big opportunity for Russell, as it will give him the opportunity to receive some NFL playing time. The 24-year-old linebacker has appeared in four games for Tampa this season, where he has one solo tackle.

Alas, we will have to wait and see how Russell responds to this promotion to the active roster from here.
