The Buccaneers placed WR Arrelious Benn on injured reserve and signed WR David Douglas off the Giants’ practice squad.

Benn has been slowed by a knee injury he suffered on the first day of training camp. In eight games this season, he has four catches for 26 yards and 13 kickoff returns for 306 yards, averaging 23.5 yards a return. 

The former second-round pick leads the team with six tackles in kick coverage.

Douglas has spent the entire 2012 season on the Giants’ practice squad. He’s an undrafted rookie out of Arizona.
