The Bucs waived running back Shaun Wilson Friday, reducing their roster to 89 players.

Wilson, who played collegiately at Duke, proved himself in the 2018 training camp and earned a spot on the roster. He played in five games for the team in 2018, gaining 29 yards on six carries along with three pass receptions for five yards and seven kickoff returns for 122 yards.

However, he suffered a shoulder injury in a Nov. 10 game against Washington and the Bucs placed him on injured reserve two days later.
