Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Donald Penn has been removed from the active/non-football injury list, according to a Tweet from the team. Penn will be able to begin practicing with the team immediately, but is not expected to play in Friday's preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. Penn had been sidelined by a calf injury since the start of camp. Demar Dotson is expected to start in Friday's game.
The 2012 NFL season will be Penn's seventh year in the league, having signed as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings in 2006 but debuted for the Bucs in 2007. He has started every game for the team since the 2008 season, and was named as a Pro Bowl alternate in 2011.
