BUFFALO, NY (Buffalo Bills) — The Bills made a pair of roster moves to fortify their offensive and defensive lines Saturday. Buffalo elevated C/G David Snow and DT Jay Ross from their practice squad to the active roster.
Snow (6’4” 303) was an undrafted free agent signing this past May and has played mostly center in training camp and the preseason before being signed to the team’s practice squad after final cuts.
Ross (6’3” 319) has been on the team’s practice squad since last season and is primarily an interior defensive lineman.
Buffalo had to fortify their offensive line because Chad Rinehart is questionable with a calf injury and starting left tackle Cordy Glenn and right guard Kraig Urbik are both out for Sunday. Eric Wood is also questionable with a foot injury, though he is expected to start Sunday.
Head coach Chan Gailey said that recent signee Reggie Wells is unlikely to be ready to play this week after just three practices with the club, so should injury strike reserve Sam Young would be the first off the bench.
On the defensive side of the ball the situation is no better. Mark Anderson was lost indefinitely with a knee injury and had surgery earlier this week. Spencer Johnson is still out with an ankle injury and Kyle Williams is questionable with ankle injury for Sunday’s game. Should Williams not last the whole game it would leave Buffalo with just five defensive linemen, so an addition had to be made.
To make room on the roster for Ross and Snow the Bills released RB Johnny White and S Delano Howell.
