A hip injury has kept Mike Caussin out of Buffalo Bills training camp practices, and now he's no longer with the team.

In their second roster move in as many days, the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday announced that they've parted ways with tight end Mike Caussin. He's been waived/injured after spending more than two weeks of training camp sidelined with a hip issue.

The Bills signed Caussin off of Jacksonville's practice squad late in the 2010 season, and he therefore spent part of four seasons in Buffalo. A former undrafted free agent out of James Madison, Caussin suited up for six games with the Bills in 2011, but an ACL injury late that year ultimately kept him out of the 2012 season, as well. The recent hip injury was the latest in a long line of injury issues for the talented player.

Coming off a strong spring, there was some buzz that Caussin might surprise and crack the 53-man roster with a strong training camp performance. That, however, never materialized. The Bills now have five tight ends fighting for three roster spots, and 88 players on the roster overall (including Jairus Byrd and Chris Hairston, who haven't participated yet).
