Bucs DE William Gholston left the Week 8 game against the Falcons with a knee injury and is questionable to return.

Gholston had four tackles before exiting late in the first quarter. His absence will open up more snaps for Howard Jones and Josh Shirley at defensive end.

Bucs agreed to terms with No. 126 overall pick DE William Gholston on a four-year contract.

Gholston is an imposing 6-foot-6, 281 pounds with 34-inch arms, but lacks high-end athleticism (4.96 40-yard dash, 1.73 ten-yard split). He's more adept at swallowing up blockers than exploding off the edge. Gholston will likely play limited snaps as a rotational end this season.

Bucs selected Michigan State DE William Gholston with the No. 126 overall pick.

Gholston (6-foot-6 1/4, 281) recorded 30 career tackles for loss and 10 sacks across 36 games for the Spartans, making 24 starts. Big Ten coaches voted him honorable mention all-conference last year. The cousin of former megabust Vernon Gholston, William is a pure five-technique, 3-4 end prospect who ran 4.96 at the Combine with a plodding 1.73 ten-yard split. He offers little natural edge-rushing ability, but possesses long arms (34") to control blockers. Gholston could line up at end on early downs before kicking inside on passing downs in Tampa Bay.
