Waiting to make those moves allows the Bills to bring both players back to the active roster at some point this season. Under relaxed IR rules put in place for this season, teams can bring an unlimited number of players back from injured reserve once they’ve missed three weeks. Usual rules allow for two players to return after eight weeks on the list.
Roberts averaged eight yards per punt return and 26.6 yards per kickoff return for the Bills in 2019. Marlowe had 11 tackles in nine games last season.
