Redskins Waive Dorson Boyce

A fullback signed at the start of training camp last year, Boyce missed the season after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder in the preseason finale against Tampa Bay.


Dorson Boyce, a backup fullback who spent all of last season on injured reserve, was waived by the Redskins on Thursday afternoon as they attempt to get to the 90-man roster limit by the end of the day.

Boyce, who turns 25 at the end of the week, originally signed with the Redskins the first day of training camp last season, but he tore the labrum in his left shoulder during the final preseason game against Tampa Bay.

By waiving Boyce, the Redskins will enter training camp next month with Eric Kettani as the backup to starter Darrel Young.

The Redskins signed three players on Wednesday – receivers Donté Stallworth and Devery Henderson and kicker John Potter – and designated defensive end Doug Worthington and tight end DeAngelo Peterson as waived/injured to start making room for them on the roster.
