Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Chris Conte was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after aggravating his knee injury during Monday night’s 30-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Conte, who had started all three games and has 14 tackles for the Bucs this season, was stiff-armed to the ground by the Steelers’ Vance McDonald on a 75-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger in the first quarter.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter, who didn’t specify when Conte suffered the injury against Pittsburgh, said there’s a chance that the safety could return this season.

Conte, who originally suffered the injury against the Eagles in Week 2, was limited with a brace during practice last week, but he said he was going to try to play through it.
