Wilson was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a shoulder injury, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Per the report, Wilson suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He rushed two times for seven yards in the contest but will now likely be sidelined for the remainder of the season. On the season, the undrafted rookie out of Duke recorded six rushing attempts for 29 yards and caught three of five targets for five yards.
Wilson rushed twice for seven yards and brought in one of three targets for minus-4 yards in the Buccaneers' 16-3 loss to the Redskins on Sunday. Wilson saw his offense role increase slightly, as he logged 10 snaps from scrimmage. However, the speedy rookie still remains firmly behind Jacquizz Rodgers as the backup to Peyton Barber, and he could well revert back to inactive status on most weeks once Ronald Jones II (hamstring) is healthy enough to return to action.
Wilson is a candidate to see action on kickoff returns against the Panthers in Week 9, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Wilson is active for the first time since Week 3. The speedy rookie logged only eight snaps total on offense over the first three games of the campaign, but he contributed 97 return yards through his work on kickoffs. Despite his active status and Ronald Jones' (hamstring) absence, Wilson is unlikely to see more than a scant number of carries behind Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers.
Wilson will be active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Wilson has been a healthy scratch for the last four games, but he'll dress in Week 9 with Ronald Jones (hamstring) sidelined. The undrafted rookie out of Duke is unlikely to see a significant offensive role behind healthy backs Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers but could see involvement on special teams.
Wilson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 4 tilt against the Bears, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. The reserve running back is the odd man out with 2018 second-round pick Ronald Jones II enjoying active status for the first time Sunday. Wilson's absence doesn't have an appreciable impact on the team's base offense, but Jacquizz Rodgers will presumably take over Wilson's kick-return duties.
