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 for the Bucs this season, was injured when he 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 said there's a chance that Conte, who has 14 tackles, could return this season.

Early last week, Conte said he was going to try to play through the knee injury by wearing a brace.
