Bills place LaAdrian Waddle on IR, sign offensive line help

The Bills spent the offseason rebuilding their offensive line, and that process has continued as injuries hit during training camp.

The team announced that veteran free agent tackle LaAdrian Waddle was placed on injured reserve after tearing his quad in Sunday’s practice. To replace him on the roster, they signed tackle Jarron Jones.

Jones was released by the Lions in May. He went to camp with the Giants in 2017 as an undrafted rookie defensive tackle from Notre Dame, but spent time on the Seahawks practice squad that year and converted to offense. He has also been with the Cowboys and Buccaneers practice squads. He has not appeared in a regular season game.

The Bills had to sign Nico Siragusa last week after Isaac Asiata retired, which was the latest transaction up front after they spent the offseason harvesting new blockers.

  1. I think the Bills O line will still be much improved this year – IF Mitch Morse can get onto the field at center.

    Signing a defensive lineman to play offensive tackle doesn’t sound like a recipe for success.

    This is the first O line injury with any real time limit to it. The others are of the “nagging” variety, and they will all be back in a week. They get a closer look at guys who otherwise wouldn’t get the exposure they need to make a positive impression. I like Waddle, and he will go on IR and be around later. I figure about 2 months for a torn quad. That’s week 5 if he’s a player tagged for return. Kroft is the only other long term injury, and he’s over half way to return. Two weeks ahead of schedule. BTW, Morse didn’t have a concussion. He had Concussion like symptoms. It’s precautionary. I have some of those symptoms right now. I have a headache. That’s a concussion symptom.—LOL NICE WORK ‘doctor ‘
