The Bills brought Marlowe up from the practice squad Wednesday.
Marlowe and the Bills parted ways in early October after he received a spot start for the team just a day prior, but he landed in the practice squad and now gets a late-season promotion. He's been brought back on with a pair of players in the secondary dealing with injuries. Still, he shouldn't serve as much more than a depth option.
Marlowe was waived Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Reside on the practice squad until Friday. Get promoted on a Saturday. Get bumped to a starter's spot Sunday and have a key role in a close win. Get cut 48 hours later so a 35-year-old quarterback can take your place. Such is life in the NFL for fringe players like Marlowe, who was waived so the Bills could make room for veteran Derek Anderson. The Bills like Marlowe and what he brings to the table, so we'll see if they try to bring the safety back to the practice squad.
Marlowe, just promoted from the practice squad Saturday, started at safety across from Jordan Poyer in Sunday's win over the Titans and logged four tackles and a pass defensed.
Marlowe played all 54 defensive snaps, so he was the clear-cut starter at least for one week and didn't have to share time with rookie Siran Neal. Marlowe played capably according to coach Sean McDermott's post-game comments, but his run as a starter could be short-lived if either Micah Hyde (groin) or Rafael Bush (shoulder) gets back to practicing this week.

Marlowe is no stranger to Buffalo brass, as they've all collectively reunited from their Carolina days. The safety may be no stranger to the field Sunday either, as safeties Micah Hyde and Rafael Bush haven't practiced all week, and the only other healthy safety is a rookie in Siran Neal.

Marlowe has only suited up for five NFL games in his two seasons in the league, but he was expected to be a valid depth safety in Carolina. Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports Marlowe was waived due to a torn hamstring. He'll likely revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers.
Marlowe (hamstring) participated in the entirety of the Panthers' OTAs, Bryan Strickland of the team's official site reports. "This is the first time I actually put on a helmet since September," Marlowe said. "But adversity can be key -- you just have to bounce back and keep pushing. I'm so happy to be out here healthy and performing on the field."
Marlowe spent nearly his entire rookie season on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury, but he now appears to be back to 100 percent. The second-year James Madison product picked off a few passes in front of reporters during OTAs and seems to be making a strong case for the No. 2 strong safety job behind Kurt Coleman.

Marlowe ends his 2016 campaign after only 16 snaps in his season debut against the 49ers on Sunday. The undrafted safety suffered a hamstring injury early in the preseason and finally appeared healthy enough to play Sunday. Unfortunately, he aggravated the injury early in the game, leaving the Panthers no choice but to pull the plug on the 24-year-old's season. Marlowe's injury creates a hole in Carolina's special teams unit and leaves Kurt Coleman as the only strong safety on the active roster.
Marlowe aggravated a previous hamstring injury and is expected to have an MRI performed in the near future, Bryan Strickland of Panthers.com reports.
Marlowe missed the team's season opener with a hamstring injury that also caused him to be limited throughout the preseason. He was able to return the field during Week 2, but failed to record a statistic in limited time. Instead, he appeared to have re-aggravated his hamstring injury and is now slated to undergo an MRI. Once the results are in, we should have a better indication of a potential absence.

Marlowe was inactive for the Panthers' regular season opener against the Broncos last Thursday, but according to coach Ron Rivera there's a good chance Marlowe will be able to play in Week 2 against the 49ers, Bryan Strickland of Panthers.com reports. Carolina could also play it safe with Marlowe, however, as San Francisco's aerial attack isn't expected to be dangerous. Kurt Coleman and Tre Boston figure to start at the safety spots regardless, with Colin Jones potentially earning additional reps if Marlowe is sidelined.

Marlowe's status for Thursday remains wildly up in the air. The Panthers have allowed the 24-year-old to ease back into the flow of things, but the season opener is just two days away and he has not practiced fully in nearly a month. Even if Marlowe does play Thursday, Carolina will likely only use him in a condensed role.

Marlowe has been sidelined for the majority of training camp and preseason nursing his injured hamstring.

Many close to the Panthers believe that if Marlowe is not healthy by the start of the regular season, then Carolina may look to add another safety to its roster.
Marlowe (hamstring) remains sidelined at practice, Max Henson of Panthers.com reports.
Marlowe has already missed the team's first two preseason games and has yet to be cleared for a return to the practice field. He remains without a timetable for a return and doesn't appear to be nearing full strength, which is a bit concerning with just two preseason games left on the schedule. Marlowe was originally fighting for a spot in the team's two-deep at safety, but the longer he's out, the further he could tumble down the the depth chart.

While it was originally expected that he could possibly return in time to play Saturday, it is now clear that Marlowe's hamstring injury may be worse than previously thought. Although Marlowe's injury will most likely not hinder his chances at making the team's roster, the time missed almost certainly impacts his chances of earning a starting spot in the secondary.
