Tony Moeaki injury prompts Bills to sign Dominique Jones

A hamstring injury may cost Tony Moeaki a significant amount of time, and the Bills are now scrambling for bodies at tight end as a result.


The Buffalo Bills were in need of some tight end help - we'll get to that in a moment - and signed tight end Dominique Jones on Saturday as a result. Jones has split time between fullback and tight end in the NFL, playing 12 games in two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs. He has three career receptions.

Buffalo had a need at tight end because Tony Moeaki, the veteran from Kansas City signed last December, injured his hamstring on Friday. The oft-injured Moeaki will be out for a "significant" amount of time, says head coach Doug Marrone, but could be back before the end of training camp. That should probably put to bed any talk of him replacing Scott Chandler as the lead tight end.

Also at the tight end spot, Chris Gragg remains sidelined, but is close to returning after spending multiple days in the hospital recovering from heat-related issues.

Offensive lineman Mark Asper, who had been running as the third-team right tackle, was released to make room for Jones. Asper appeared in six games for the Bills a year ago. Our unofficial Bills training camp depth chart is up to date with the latest.
