The Bills will be trying to play spoiler against the Jets this weekend, but they won’t have the help of tight end Charles Clay or cornerback Ron Brooks in that effort.
Buffalo announced that both player have been placed on injured reserve, bringing their seasons to an end just before the lights go out on the rest of the roster as well. The team didn’t announce new additions to the roster, but they’ll likely come at some point on Wednesday.
Clay has missed the last two games with a back injury, so his first year with the Bills ends with 51 catches for 528 yards and three touchdowns. That might be seen as a bit of a disappointment given the $20 million in guaranteed money that the Bills gave Clay when they signed him away from the Dolphins, but it’s not the only one in Buffalo this year and he’ll have a chance to improve on those totals in 2016.
Brooks returned to the lineup last weekend after missing two games with a concussion and made five tackles in the victory over the Cowboys. He’s set to become a free agent this offseason.
