Roster note regarding cuts

Posted by Chris Brown on August 30, 2010 – 12:31 pm

With the deadline to release players to get the roster down to 75, there is one note that should be mentioned.

Despite the fact that Danny Batten and Marcus Easley have both been placed on injured reserve, they currently still count toward the roster total in the preseason. So although the Bills have only 78 healthy players on their roster, their roster total in the eyes of the NFL is still 80.

But by 4 pm Tuesday the two I-R’d players will no longer count so ultimately the team will only have to move three players off their roster to get down to 75. Batten and Easley will no longer count against the roster effective Tuesday at 4 pm.

The reason Felton Huggins and Michael Matthews do not count against the team’s roster total is because they were put through waivers before reverting to the team’s injured reserve list.
