Happy returns

With rookie Michael Smith inactive Sunday, the Bucs turned their kick return chores over to WR Arrelious Benn, who suffered a knee injury on the first day of training camp and didn't dress in last week's opener against Carolina.

Benn experienced a topsy-turvy day as he fumbled a kickoff three minutes into the game, then atoned with a 55-yard return to start the second half.

"I should have kept the ball up high and tight,'' said Benn, whose early fumble was recovered by teammate Quincy Black at the Bucs 13. "After that, I calmed down.''

Benn hadn't returned a kickoff since his college days at Illinois. "I like it because it's a way to get the ball in my hands and make a play,'' Benn said. "We fought hard today. All we can do is regroup and get ready for Dallas.''
