Bills tight end MarQueis Gray (broken forearm) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, ESPN reports. With Gray ruled out for the season, Chris Gragg and Matthew Mulligan will provide depth at tight end behind Charles Clay. Gray, a former college quarterback, saw just one target in four games this season.
Bills tight end MarQueis Gray, the team's No. 2 tight end, suffered a broken forearm during Sunday's loss to the Giants, WKBW.com reports. It's undetermined at this time how much action Gray will miss, though it's worth noting Charles Clay is hogging up all the tight end targets in the Buffalo passing game. To date, Gray, Chris Gragg, and Matthew Mulligan have just one catch each though four games.
The Bills received contributions from several pass-catchers during Sunday's win over Green Bay in Week 15. Robert Woods was targeted five times but only finished with two grabs for 22 yards. Scott Chandler also finished with 22 yards on two receptions but was targeted only twice by Kyle Orton. MarQueis Gray caught his lone target for a gain of 8 yards, while Chris Hogan came down with one catch for 6 yards on two targets. Lee Smith caught both of his targets for only one yard.
Receivers MarQueis Gray and Chris Hogan led an array of Bills who made contributions to a key win Sunday against the Browns. Gray caught just two short passes, but turned them into 71 yards, which tied Robert Woods for team honors. Hogan added two receptions for only eight yards, but one was gathered in just into the end zone and gave Buffalo a lead it would not relinquish. Both will attempt to pitch in when the team travels to play the Broncos in Week 14.
The Bills declared fullback Frank Summers (neck), tight end MarQueis Gray, linebacker Randell Johnson, offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, wideout Marquise Goodwin (ankle) and defensive ends Jarius Wynn (knee) and Bryan Johnson inactive for Monday's game against the Jets.
