The Bills announced they have released defensive-end Bryan Johnson on Tuesday, according to the team's official website.. Johnson was originally an undrafted free agent signed by Buffalo after the 2014 draft. He spent most of the 2014 season on the team's practice squad.
The Bills have placed defensive end Bryan Johnson on their practice squad three days after releasing him from their 53-man roster. Johnson has been active for two games, but has yet to play a down.
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.
The Bills have promoted rookie defensive end Bryan Johnson from the practice squad to the live roster. The move was likely precipitated by the possible loss of fellow defensive end Jarius Wynn to an injury for the Thursday night game against Miami.
The Bills trimmed their active roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Xavius Boyd, DT Landon Cohen, TE Dominique Jones, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Sam Miller, P Brian Moorman, QB Jordan Palmer, FB Evan Rodriguez, WR Naaman Roosevelt, C Jared Wheeler, QB Jeff Tuel, S Deon Broomfield, LB Jimmy Gaines, WR T.J. Graham, WR Caleb Holley, DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, DE Bryan Johnson, S Kenny Ladler, C Doug Legursky and G Antoine McClain.
