Bills Designate LB Matt Milano To Return From IR, Promote WR Jake Kumerow


The Bills announced on Wednesday they have designated LB Matt Milano to return from injured reserve and promoted WR Jake Kumerow from the practice squad to the active roster. 

Buffalo also designated LB Tyrel Dodson to return and signed O Marquel Harrell to the practice squad. 

This opens up a three-week window of time for Milano and Dodson to practice with the team before Buffalo has to add them to the active roster. 

Milano, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bills back in 2017. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.66 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $735,000 for the 2020 season. 

Milano will be an unrestricted free agent in 2021. 

In 2020, Milano has appeared in five games and recorded 21 total tackles, one tackle for loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception, and three pass defenses. 

Kumerow, 28, originally signed on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin-Whitewater back in 2015. He was on and off the team’s practice squad during his rookie season but returned to the Bengals on a futures contract.

Kumerow eventually joined the Packers and returned to Green Bay on a futures contract for the 2018 season. He returned to Green Bay last year on an exclusive rights contract but was waived coming out of camp. The Bills signed him to their practice squad. 

In 2019, Kumerow appeared in 14 games for the Packers and caught 12 passes for 219 yards receiving and one touchdown.
