TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback C.J. Wilson has been placed on the reserve/retired list while he recovers from losing two fingers on his right hand in a July 4 fireworks accident.

The third-year pro out of North Carolina State is one of two NFL players, along with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul of the New York Giants, who suffered hand injuries in accidents involving fireworks during the holiday weekend.

Wilson’s agents said when the 25-year-old is “fully healed” he hopes to resume his NFL career.

DOLPHINS: Quarterback Josh Freeman was released, ending his bid to jump-start his career with Miami.

The 2009 first-round draft pick signed a one-year contract in April. He has 60 career starts but hasn’t played since October 2013, and during offseason workouts he failed to seriously challenge Matt Moore for the backup job behind Ryan Tannehill.

VIKINGS: Second-year cornerback Jabari Price has been suspended by the NFL for the first two games of the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Price was arrested early Dec. 29 on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving, a few hours after the Vikings played their last game of the season. He pleaded guilty April 10 to a reduced charge of careless driving.

BRONCOS: Defensive end Derek Wolfe will miss the first month of the season after being suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

Wolfe, who played in every game last season, said in a statement he took medicine this offseason that he didn’t realize was prohibited by the NFL. He apologized to the Broncos and their fans.

CHIEFS: Cornerback Sean Smith will miss the first three games of the season after he was suspended for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Smith was arrested last year on a drunken driving charge and pleaded guilty earlier this year.

SAINTS: New Orleans cut Junior Galette, who has been among the team’s most productive pass rushers the past two seasons but also has dealt with off-the field trouble.

Galette was arrested in January after an alleged domestic dispute. Charges were dropped, but the incident remains under review by the NFL. The league also is reviewing a video which shows a man resembling Galette in an altercation on a beach.

CARDINALS: Arizona signed free-agent tight end Jermaine Gresham to a one-year contract.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Gresham is a former first-round pick and two-time Pro Bowl selection who spent five seasons with Cincinnati.
