The Bills opted to cut Worthy on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Worthy is coming off his most productive game of the season, having posted three tackles in Sunday's loss to the Saints. However, the Bills opted to sign defensive lineman DeAndre Coleman on Tuesday to help boost their run defense (Coleman had more size than Worthy), and Worthy was the odd man out. He'll now look for new opportunities elsewhere.
Worthy passed the NFL's concussion protocol and is expected to practice Wednesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
The Bills' release of DeAndre Coleman earlier this week appeared to signal that the team anticipated Worthy would be able to make his season debut Sunday against the Falcons, and the fact that Worthy has been cleared to practice only adds further credence to that notion. With Marcell Dareus (ankle) expected to be limited at practice Wednesday and at risk of missing the Week 4 contest, Worthy could be thrust into a sizable role right away if he indeed suits up this weekend.
Worthy (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Worthy has reportedly started to finally see some progress in the concussion protocol, but he's not far enough along yet to be ready for Sunday's game, where the Bills will now be extra short-staffed because Marcell Dareus has also been ruled out.
