The Buffalo Bills announced Monday that they’ve placed C Eric Wood on injured reserve and promoted CB Marcus Roberson to their active roster.
- The Bills also signed C Dalton Freeman to their practice squad.
This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that Wood recently suffered a broken leg and was expected to miss around six weeks or so.
Wood, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2009. He’s currently in the fourth year of his five-year, $27.7 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $4.125 million over the final two years of the agreement.
The Bills and Wood agreed to restructure his contract at the start of the season, which created $2.5 million of cap space for the Bills.
This season, Wood has appeared in nine games for the Bills and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 29 center out of 34 qualifying players.
Roberson, 24, originally signed on with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in May of 2014. He was able to make the 53-man roster in each of his first two years in the league but was unfortunately cut loose coming out of the preseason a few months ago.
Roberson has been on and off of the Bills’ practice squad this season.
In 2015, Roberson appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 29 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and six pass defenses.
