Bills place McGee on injured reserve, sign Hamdan

To fill their gaping hole at quarterback, the Bills signed Gibran Hamdan Tuesday. 

And to clear room for Hamdan, they placed cornerback Terrence McGee on injured reserve. 

Buffalo’s best cover cornerback struggled through a season that included chest, knee, and shoulder injuries.  He still managed to play eleven games, but will likely require shoulder surgery.
McGee also had a knee surgery earlier in the season.

Hamdan started the season in Buffalo, so he knows the team’s system.  His presence is a sign that Ryan Fitzpatrick won’t be ready for Sunday’s game.  Brian Brohm is expected to start.

McGee is the eighteenth Bills player to be place on injured reserve.  We’d argue that no team was more ravaged by injuries this year.  Discuss among yourselves if you disagree.

    Chuck Norris once sent 52 players to IR in one half of a game.

    “We’d argue that no team was more ravaged by injuries this year.”
    Even with all of those 18 players fully healthy, the Buffalo Bills roster is still one of the least talented in the NFL.

    Injuries are a part of the game, and no one is going to fell sorry for anyone because of them./discussion.

    McGee is a big loss for them, he’s one of their few good players.

    And yet the management will use injuries as an excuse for another piss poor season.

    …try the Cleveland Browns? I’d say they’re a lot more injury plagued than the Bills.

    Starting for the Bills next week: Jack Kemp’s bones! OH!

    The fins lost their starting quarterback, all pro running back, starting corner back and nose tackle. injuries happen in the NFL, having a good coaching staff and depth on the roster is the key to winning

    Randy Moss gone done whup his ass. Maybe that’s why he doesn’t like going over the middle. He doesn’t want to hurt anyone else.

    Gibran Hamdan? Didn’t he used to be Cat Stevens?

    I guess that the Bills injuries are worthy of some note, although to make such a claim places more value on quantity than quality. The Browns and Dolphins have both list more important players. Indeed, the Dolphins lost the best person in the two most important offensive positions – QB and RB. The Lions may not have had too many IRs, but they’ve lost significant time for their franchise QB and star WR, not to mention the IR RB. TheDolphins were fortunate to have enough depth to compensate for that (thanks to Parcell’s expertise). Like everyone else is saying, injuries aren’t an excuse as all teams have to deal with them.
