After announcing that receiver Roscoe Parrish and linebacker Andra Davis would be placed on season-ending Injured Reserve on Monday, the Bills had two roster spots to fill. According to a report from Brian McIntyre, they have decided to do so by promoting receiver Paul Hubbard from the practice squad and signing linebacker Mike Balogun off of Tampa Bay's practice squad.

Hubbard has been on Buffalo's practice squad since very early in the season. The 6'2", 225-pound Wisconsin product was a sixth-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2008, and has not yet appeared in a regular season NFL game. His promotion solidifies the expected increased roles for rookie receivers David Nelson and Donald Jones, who will both see an increase in snaps to help replace Parrish.

C.J. Spiller and Shawn Nelson could see a decent amount of time lined up in the slot, as well.

Balogun is an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oklahoma. The 6'0", 240-pound inside linebacker had a strong pre-season in San Francisco, and has spent time with Washington and (most recently) Tampa Bay this season. Should he ever get the opportunity to play, he will likely appear only as a specialist.

If the report is accurate, Buffalo's 53-man roster will be set heading into their Week 10 matchup with Detroit. Hubbard's promotion would leave another vacancy on the practice squad.
