The Bills did not announce it because the league makes the designation, but Marshawn Lynch has been placed on the reserve/suspended list meaning he currently does not count toward a roster spot.
So the Bills get down to 53 by virtue of that designation.
James Hardy was also placed on Reserve/PUP meaning he will not be able to practice with the team until the end of Week 6 at the earliest. Truthfully it was a wise decision. It affords Hardy a month and a half more to build up stamina in his knee to withstand the daily rigors of practice and games.
