With Losman Out, Bills Bring Back Nall

Another Sunday of injuries, another week of roster moves - we're beginning to see a pattern developing here for the Bills. Today was no different; with starting QB J.P. Losman sidelined by a sprained knee, the Bills today brought back Craig Nall - cut during the pre-season - on a one-year deal to back up rookie Trent Edwards. To make room on the active roster, the Bills placed LB Paul Posluszny on Injured Reserve, officially ending his promising rookie season.

Rumblings user nickfeely8, who broke the story here in this diary, says it best in regards to Nall:

...bringing in Nall to back up Trent Edwards is a smart move by Levy. Nall knows the system well after being brought in to compete for the starting job last pre-season and backing up JP last year.

This is, indeed, a move that is not only smart, but probably was expected after Losman was injured. Even when Losman returns, it's a bit more relieving to know that there are 3 quarterbacks on the roster. As a minor aside, having a third quarterback will also allow the Bills to use Fred Jackson more on special teams - this kid, with all the injuries around him, needs to be on the football field and not the team's emergency quarterback. Once Losman returns, that will be possible.

As for Posluszny, he becomes the fourth Bill (K. Simpson, J. Webster, K. Everett) to hit IR through just three games. Poz is still a very promising player and has a bright future in the league, but losing this year will only hinder the progress he'll make at this level. Take care, Poz - you're still a fan favorite, and we look forward to seeing you in 2008.
