In an update from an earlier report on CJ Wilson, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback reportedly lost two fingers during a July 4th, fireworks accident.

"Bucs backup cornerback C.J. Wilson lost two fingers on one hand in a fireworks accident July 4, the Lincoln (N.C.) Times-News is reporting," writes Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

The Buccaneers just released a statement.
