Wood has been placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL during Sunday's game against the Titans, ESPN reports. Wood's season-ending injury further depletes the Bills' banged-up backfield, as starting running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and rookie backup Karlos Williams (concussion) were already both inactive Sunday. With those absentees, Anthony Dixon and Dan Herron represent the only healthy tailbacks on Buffalo's current roster ahead of Sunday's Week 6 game against the Bengals.
Bills running back Cierre Wood (knee) is out for the remainder of the game Sunday against the Titans, reports Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News. Wood had two carries for three yards and was splitting carries with Boobie Dixon and Dan Herron.
Running back Cierre Wood has been promoted to the Bills' active roster. With LeSean McCoy ruled out this week, Wood is expected to serve as the team's No. 3 running back on Sunday against the Giants, behind Karlos Williams and Anthony Dixon.
The Ravens waived safety Omar Brown, linebackers Nick DiMarco and Austin Spitler, punter Richie Leone, offensive tackle David Mims, cornerbacks Marrio Norman and Deji Olatoye, receivers LaQuan Williams and Mike Willie and running back Cierre Wood. Fullback Shaun Chapas and offensive tackle Brett Van Sloten were waived with injury designations. Baltimore also placed defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, guard Will Rackley and defensive end Brent Urban on injured reserve.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team planned to add one or two running backs even before Ray Rice's felony assault case, reports ESPN.com. Look for Baltimore to draft at least one of those. Behind Rice, the Ravens have Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Cierre Wood.
