The Buccaneers made a pair of roster moves just hours before their Monday Night Football game vs. the Carolina Panthers.

With starting defensive end Simeon Rice out of tonight’s game with a shoulder injury, the Bucs promoted rookie DE Charles Bennett from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

In order to make room for Bennett on their active roster, the Bucs released wide receiver/punt returner Mark Jones, who has been sidelined for several weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Wide receiver Ike Hilliard and cornerback Phillip Buchanon have been fielding punts in Jones’ place over the last several games.
