Bucs activate CB Wright

Updated: December 29, 2012

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers activated cornerback Eric Wright off the reserve list Saturday.

Wright was suspended the last four games for violating the NFL’s policy on
performance-enhancing substances.

The 27-year-old, who signed a five-year deal with the Buccaneers as a free
agent in the offseason, started all 10 games he appeared in this season and
compiled 39 tackles, seven passes defensed and an interception he returned 60
yards for a touchdown against the New York Giants back in Week 2.

He missed the Bucs’ Week 12 loss to the Atlanta Falcons with an Achilles
injury prior to serving his suspension.

Tampa Bay waived cornerback LeQuan Lewis to clear a roster spot.
