The Buffalo Bills announced their four protected practice squad players ahead of their Week 9 tilt with the Seattle Seahawks, and each player on the list is someone who has appeared on it before. The Bills protected offensive linemen Jordan Devey and Jonotthan Harrison, defensive end Bryan Cox Jr., and cornerback Dane Jackson this week.

Of the four, Jackson made the largest impact, playing in his first career game two weeks ago against the New York Jets. Jackson also notched his first career interception in the game, a pick of Sam Darnold while the Jets were looking for more points prior to halftime. Rather than the Jets adding to their 10-3 lead, the Bills were able to add a field goal before the half in what was ultimately an 18-10 victory.

Cox Jr. has also appeared in a game this year, as he was part of a defensive line shakeup against the Kansas City Chiefs. The shakeup was short-lived, as Buffalo allowed 245 rushing yards in the 26-17 loss. Cox played 23 defensive snaps in the game, making one tackle.

Devey made it on the field for two snaps against the Jets, serving as an extra offensive lineman in jumbo sets. That’s his only game action of the season. Harrison has yet to appear in a game for Buffalo.
