The Bills don’t have much of value left to play for this season, but they’ve got two games left on the schedule all the same and they’ll need healthy bodies to fill out the roster for them.
To that end, the Bills have removed a couple of injured players from the roster. Linebacker Arthur Moats has been placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury he suffered in last week’s loss to the Seahawks. Wide receiver Donald Jones missed that game with a calf injury that’s bothered him on and off this season and he’s been placed on the non-football injury list.
“It’s been bothering him off and on,” head coach Chan Gailey said, via the Bills website. “It shows up and doesn’t show up.”
Jones had 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns this season, all of which are career highs. If the Bills get David Nelson back healthy and acquire the top-flight receiver they hope to add this offseason, Jones will likely be in for a fight with rookie T.J. Graham for a spot on the depth chart next season.
The Bills promoted wide receiver Chris Hogan and linebacker Greg Lloyd (not that one) from the practice squad to fill out the roster. You might remember Hogan as “7-Eleven” from this summer’s edition of Hard Knocks, which featured Hogan’s ultimately unsuccessful effort to make the Dolphins as one of its running storylines.
