It looks as though Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Arrelious Benn is about to end his season on injured reserve for the third time in as many years.

Per a report by USA Today's Mike Garafolo, Benn's knee and shoulder injuries, which kept him out of practice on Wednesday, are expected to land the third-year wide out on injured reserve any day now.

Benn has missed two regular season games this season thanks to those injuries. He also missed the entire preseason as well.

The 2010 second-round pick only has four receptions for 26 yards this season. He's also returned 13 kickoffs with an average of 23.5 yards.

According to, the Bucs have signed wide receiver David Douglas, who is an undrafted rookie, off of the New York Giants' practice squad to replace Benn.

Douglas played his collegiate ball at the University of Arizona.
