Stills reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Stills was inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs. He appeared in 10 games with the Texans during the regular season, catching 11 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown on 19 targets.
Stills (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. Stills was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, but he won't make his Bills debut. The 28-year-old receiver posted an 11-144-1 line over 10 games with the Texans before being cut in November.
The Bills elevated Stills from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday. The Texans cut Stills loose in late November after his role dried up in the offense. Prior to the move, he hauled in 11 of 19 targets for 144 yards and one touchdown. Buffalo's receiving corps is banged up at the moment, with Stefon Diggs (oblique) and Cole Beasley (knee) hindered in practice this week and Gabriel Davis (ankle) questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game at Kansas City. A decision on Stills this weekend may be contingent on the availability of Davis.
The Bills signed Stills to the practice squad Monday. Stills will provide the Bills with valuable emergency veteran depth at the wideout position behind Stefon Diggs, John Brown, Cole Beasley (knee) and Gabriel Davis. The 28-year-old appeared in 10 regular-season games with the Texans earlier this year, in which span he secured 11 of 19 targets for 144 yards and a touchdown.
Stills is slated to visit the Bills on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Schefter notes that the wideout would need to pass through medical protocols before signing, but there's "optimism the deal gets done." If so, Stills would give the Bills valuable depth and experience behind starting wideouts Stefon Diggs, John Brown (ankle) and Cole Beasley (leg) for their upcoming playoff run.
