Bills' Justin Zimmer: Moves up from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills promoted Zimmer from their practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Buffalo is expected to make defensive linemen Trent Murphy and Harrison Phillips healthy inactives for the Week 6 contest, so Zimmer and Bryan Cox were summoned on short notice to provide extra depth along the defensive front. Zimmer previously suited up for the Bills in the season-opening win over the Jets, logging four tackles across 16 defensive snaps.

Bills' Justin Zimmer: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer was elevated from the Bills' practice squad Saturday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

Vernon Butler (hamstring) could miss the season opener against the Jets, so Zimmer will be brought up to add depth. Zimmer played just two games for the Browns last year and recorded five tackles.

Bills' Justin Zimmer: Joins Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer (undisclosed) signed with the Bills on Sunday, Maddy Glab of the team's official site reports.

Zimmer was waived with a non-football injury designation by the Browns in early August, but he's recovered and is ready to add depth with a playoff contender. The 27-year-old geared up in two games last year and recorded five tackles. The Bills have a stout defensive front, though, so Zimmer has an uphill battle to make the final roster.

Zimmer (undisclosed) has been waived by the Browns with a non-football injury designation, Dan Labbe of reports.

The defensive tackle appeared in two games with the Browns last season, logging five tackles in the process. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder will now look to secure a depth role along another team's defensive line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons promoted Zimmer to the active roster Tuesday, Matthew Tabeek of the Falcons' official site reports.

Justin Zimmer: Signs with Falcons' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer joined Atlanta's practice squad Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports.

The third-year man will get another shot to earn his way onto the 53-man roster after being waived in favor of Michael Bennett earlier this week. With Grady Jarrett (ankle) and Takkarist McKinley (groin) being injured and serving as key components of Atlanta's defensive line, the Falcons will add some depth with Zimmer, a player who made a positive impression during the preseason with eight tackles and 1.5 sacks.
