Buffalo Bills Place Torell Troup On Injured Reserve

The Buffalo Bills have announced that second-year nose tackle Torell Troup has been placed on Injured Reserve, bringing an end to his disappointing second season. Lionel Dotson has been promoted from the practice squad to take Troup's roster spot.

Troup has been in and out of the lineup since the summer dealing with a back injury. The second-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft was largely ineffective playing at significantly less than 100 percent, which hurt the team given the absence of Kyle Williams.

It seems likely at this point - but we're just speculating, mind you - that Troup will have surgery to correct the issue and try to come back for training camp next year. In the meantime, the Bills are now out 627 pounds of nose tackle for the remaining five games of the season.

The Bills also announced that Robert Eddins has been added to the practice squad. Which makes sense, really - as a 3-4 team, they should have a pass rushing prospect on the taxi squad at all times. Eddins began the year with the Bills as a member of the active roster after going undrafted out of Ball State.
