The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed safety Major Wright on injured reserve, and they've signed cornerback C.J. Wilson to the active roster. Wright has started seven games this playing in twelve total, and mostly filling in for Mark Barron after the former first-round pick was traded to the St. Louis Rams.

Wright has played reasonably well, neither standing out nor being exploited by opposing offenses. But Bradley McDougald has replaced him without missing a beat over the past couple of weeks.

Wilson joins the roster from the team's practice squad and has bounced around the Bucs' and Bears' practice squads the past two years, entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He's been with the Bucs almost all of this year in various roster capacities but hasn't played a game, yet.
