Throughout training camp and the preseason, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Rod Streater exploded onto the scene. Unfortunately, his chance to make the team disappeared when he suffered a serious toe injury in a preseason game.

Streater and the Bills reached an injury settlement in September, and there was even chatter of him working out for the team and possibly re-signing during the season. Now, the Bills are in the playoffs, and Streater is a Bill once again, signing a reserve/future contract. That means he isn't eligible to play this season, but he will pick up with the team in the offseason workouts that start in April.

Streater has been riddled by injury for a good portion of his career, making it hard for him to find a home. He has talent, though, and he was even among the top four or five options for the Bills at one point during the exhibition season. If he can stay healthy, Streater will have a chance of making the roster to begin 2018.

Also this week, with the ankle injury LeSean McCoy suffered, the Bills added running back Aaron Green to their practice squad. Green is a second year player out of TCU, where he rushed for almost 1,300 yards and 11 touchdowns in his senior season, all while averaging over 5 yards per carry. McCoy is considered day-to-day and will likely miss practice all week in order to physically prepare for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
