Conor McDermott is also injured so depth is a concern right now. Benenoch is heading into his 7th NFL season and is on the Ryan Fitzpatrick plan when it comes to teams that he has been with (Buccaneers, Patriots, Panthers, Cowboys, Lions, Bills and Saints).
Benenoch has appeared in 36 games in his career with 23 starts, including starting all 16 games for the Buccaneers in 2018 and one game with the Saints in 2021.
