As the Bucs placed wide receiver Arrelious Benn on injured reserve they elevated defensive tackle Doug Worthington to the active roster. Benn tore an ACL last Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Worthington was signed to the Bucs practice squad on Nov. 3. He entered the league as a seventh-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2010 NFL Draft. In college Worthington played for Ohio State and made 103 tackles in 42 games. As a senior he totaled 42 tackles with five tackles for a loss and two sacks.
