The Washington Redskins announced that they have released fullback Dorson Boyce to bring their roster down to the league’s offseason limit of 90 players.

The team had until 4 p.m. to make a move after signing wide receivers Donte Stallworth and Devery Henderson and kicker John Potter on Wednesday evening.

Boyce signed with Washington last offseason, but suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during the preseason. He spent all of the 2012 campaign on the Redskins’ injured reserve list.

He was competing with Eric Kettani this offseason for backup duties to starting fullback Darrel Young.
