Aaron Williams placed on injured reserve; Cordell Roberson signed

Mike Ehrmann

The Buffalo Bills made a pair of roster moves in anticipation of Sunday's game.

Aaron Williams was one of the Buffalo Bills' biggest surprises of the 2013 season, providing a stopgap early in the season when a rash of injuries plagued the cornerback position as well as excelling in his new role as a safety. His season came to an end today when the team placed him on injured reserve.

Williams missed last week's game against the Miami Dolphins with a rib injury suffered against the Jacksonville Jaguars the previous week. He ends the season with 14 starts at several defensive backfield positions as well as four interceptions, 11 passes defensed, a forced fumble, and 82 tackles - career highs in all categories. His first season at safety safely exceeded expectations in defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's new system with some help from DBs coach Donnie Henderson.

With Stevie Johnson also declared out for the game while attending his mother's funeral this week, Buffalo promoted receiver Cordell Roberson from the practice squad. At 6'4", Roberson is the Bills' largest receiver. Marquise Goodwin and Marcus Easley are both dealing with injuries, as well, and this move ensures enough healthy bodies in the receiving corps.
