The Buffalo Bills have announced that the team has re-signed cornerback Reggie Corner, likely as further depth necessary due to the hamstring injury suffered by Terrence McGee in Sunday's season opener.

Corner, of course, has been with the team for the last three-plus seasons, and was a fourth-round draft pick of Buffalo's in 2008. After spending his first three seasons playing nickel and dime back for the Bills, he was released in final cut-downs in early September, losing the fifth cornerback spot to rookie Justin Rogers.

Buffalo was looking at the prospect of playing in Week 2 with three healthy cornerbacks - Leodis McKelvin, Drayton Florence and rookie Aaron Williams - as well as Rogers, who was inactive in Kansas City. Clearly, the team's re-signing of Florence indicates that Rogers isn't ready to play, and Corner will again serve as the team's dime back, if only for the foreseeable future.

To make room for Corner on the 53-man roster, the Bills placed rookie outside linebacker Robert Eddins on Injured Reserve. He played in Week 1, mostly on special teams.
