Demar Dotson is back, but taking him off the short-term injured reserve will cost veteran CB Tim Jennings his roster spot.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting back their starting right tackle, as they've officially activated Demar Dotson from short-term injured reserve, according to the team's official Twitter.

As you can see, in order to do that, the team chose to release cornerback Tim Jennings in the process. Jennings had played in six games this season, totaling 17 tackles after being picked up this offseason when he was released by the Chicago Bears.

Dotson should get into the mix right out of the gate, as he was highly rated after a strong 2014 season in which he played all 16 games.
