TAMPA -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed rookie wide receiver Arrelious Benn on injured reserve.

Benn suffered a left knee injury during the second quarter of Sunday's 38-15 win over the Seattle Seahawks. The Illinois product started nine of the 15 games in which he played this season, recording 25 receptions for 395 yards and two touchdowns.

In a related move, the Buccaneers promoted defensive tackle Doug Worthington to the active roster from the practice squad.

Tampa Bay can clinch a playoff spot with a win against the New Orleans Saints and losses by the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers.
