Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey informed reporters on Monday afternoon that the team will be placing wide receiver Roscoe Parrish on injured reserve, cutting short his most productive season as a professional.

Parrish left Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bears with an apparent hand injury late in the fourth quarter, but told BuffaloBills.com after the game that he didn't think the injury was too serious. At the time, Gailey agreed, but his tune was different Monday, as he disclosed that Parrish would require season-ending surgery.

After finally emerging as a legitimate threat in Buffalo's offense, Parrish ends his 2010 campaign with 33 receptions, a career-high 400 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. Donald Jones and David Nelson will see more work in multi-receiver packages, and C.J. Spiller is a likely candidate to take over Parrish's punt return duties.

This is a blow for Buffalo's offense, as Parrish had really been producing well, catching 11 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown in just the last two games. Quinton Ganther, signed Monday morning, will take the roster spot vacated by Parrish.
