Late in the day on Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills officially announced the list of roster moves made to reduce their roster count from 90 to 53 players. There’s likely to be more moves made in the coming days, and we have yet to learn about those players who will sign to the team’s practice squad.

It’s possible many among those released between Sunday and today will find their way to the Bills’ 16-man practice squad.

Exiting Saturday’s preseason finale victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers with 90 players, One Bills Drive exercised diligence in reducing their numbers to the required 53-man threshold by 4 p.m. EDT Tuesday.

Twenty-seven players were released, while quarterback Matt Barkley was placed on Injured Reserve. The Bills elected to keep Von Miller on the PUP list, keeping him on the sideline for the first four weeks of the regular season. In a surprising move, the team traded defensive end Boogie Basham and a 2025 seventh-round pick to the New York Giants in return for a 2025 sixth-round pick.

News then broke later in the evening that the team was adding free-agent right tackle Germain Ifedi.
