Buffalo Bills Place Two On IR, Sign DE Kyle Moore

On Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills made a series of roster moves, highlighted by placing center Eric Wood and linebacker Chris White on Injured Reserve. In filling their roster spots, the team brought up rookie defensive back Josh Nesbitt - a move likely dictated by the injury to George Wilson - and signed defensive end Kyle Moore off of Detroit's practice squad.

Of the two new faces, Moore's is the most intriguing. The 25-year-old USC product was a fourth-round draft pick of Tampa Bay in 2009, and was a starter for that resurgent Bucs team a year ago before suffering a season-ending injury. The 6'5", 272-pound Moore appeared in 15 career games, recording two fumble recoveries and a batted pass in that time frame.

His addition is an interesting one because of Buffalo's defensive scheme. Athletically, Moore compares most favorably to Chris Kelsay, who plays an end/linebacker hybrid position on the strong side of the alignment. Moore won't be ready to play on game days for a while, but when he does, his presence could allow Spencer Johnson to move back to where he belongs - the defensive line.
