It comes as no surprise, but the Buffalo Bills have made a set of roster moves today to bolster their injury-depleted roster. In order to make room for the new players, the team placed receiver Donald Jones and cornerback Terrence McGee on Injured Reserve. Both are done for the season.
The Bills were especially thin at receiver, and the team has added two to the active roster to try to bolster their numbers at the position. Derek Hagan, a six-year veteran that was waived by the Oakland Raiders less than three weeks ago after they signed T.J. Houshmandzadeh. The Bills will be Hagan's fourth team; Hagan has 96 career receptions for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns.
The team also added undrafted rookie free agent Kamar Aiken to the active roster. Aiken was a stand-out performer in training camp and the pre-season, and has been on Buffalo's practice squad all season.
At cornerback, rookie Aaron Williams will see the biggest uptick in playing time with McGee out of the lineup. Williams may even become a full-time starter alongside Drayton Florence, with Leodis McKelvin looking to fend off rookie Justin Rogers for nickel reps.
