Bills make roster moves prior to opener

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Three hours before the season opener, Buffalo has made a roster move releasing wide receiver Justin Jenkins and signing tight end Jonathan Stupar from the practice squad to the active roster.

Stupar, who spent last season on the Bills practice squad, impressed Bills fans with his performance this preseason but still found himself relegated to the pracitce squad last weekend after final cuts.  During the pre-season he proved his value, leading the NFL with 19 receptions for 184 yards and a touchdown.  Stupar is signed to fill in for the injured Derek Fine, who is out with a hamstring injury.  The other tight ends for Buffalo are Derek Schouman and rookie Shawn Nelson.
