Clarke re-signed with the Buccaneers on Thursday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Clarke spent his first season in Tampa Bay as a rotational defensive lineman, accumulating 15 tackles (12 solo) and 2.5 sacks in 15 games.
Clarke recorded three tackles, all solo, two sacks and a pass defensed in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Clarke now has nine tackles and three sacks in 11 games this season. His 34 defensive reps were a new season-high. Look for the veteran defensive end to continue to split reps with William Gholston on Sunday when the Buccaneers face the Lions.
The Bengals have ruled the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 10 matchup against the Browns: running back Giovani Bernard (hip, clavicle), cornerback Leon Hall (concussion), linebackers Vontaze Burfict (knee) and Rey Maualuga (hamstring), offensive tackle Andre Smith (ankle), wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher and defensive end Will Clarke. Hall and Burfict were ruled out on the team's final injury report, which also listed Bernard, Maualuga and Smith as doubtful to play. Jeremy Hill is expected to carry the load at running back with Bernard sidelined.
The Bengals declared running back Giovani Bernard (hip), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee), guard Kevin Zeitler (calf), linebacker Rey Maualuga (hamstring), cornerback Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), wideout Dane Sanzenbacher and defensive end Will Clarke inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Green (toe), linebacker Rey Maualuga (hamstring), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee), running back Rex Burkhead, cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, offensive tackle Tanner Hawkinson and defensive end Will Clarke. Green will miss his third straight game while dealing with a nagging toe injury, and an earlier report Sunday pegged his chances at playing in Week 9 at 70 percent. Maualuga had been ruled out on the team's final Week 8 injury report, while Thompson had been listed as questionable.
