Buffalo Bills WR Roscoe Parrish Out For Season

The Buffalo Bills avoided the injury bug in Week 1, but it bit hard in Week 2, as James Walker of ESPN.com is reporting - with Brent Axe confirming, and then the Bills themselves - that Roscoe Parrish will miss the remainder of the 2011 season with a left ankle injury. He's been placed on Injured Reserve.

Parrish was injured during the first half of Sunday's 38-35 win over the Oakland Raiders away from a play. From the stands at Ralph Wilson Stadium, Parrish was seen hopping rapidly off the field on one foot. He was later carted into the locker room from the sideline.

On Monday, Bills head coach Chan Gailey held out hope that Parrish would not be lost for the season, but also would not rule it out, either. Alas, the player that Gailey had big plans for offensively won't be on the field. David Nelson will assume Parrish's role as the team's go-to slot receiver (let's face it, he was there already), while C.J. Spiller will become the team's primary punt returner.

Parrish is in the final year of his contract, and it's no guarantee that he'll be back in 2012 given his recent injury history. He will be replaced on this year's active roster by Naaman Roosevelt, who appeared in nine games for the Bills as an undrafted rookie in 2010.
