Klopfenstein to I-R

Posted by Chris Brown on July 22, 2010 – 10:45 am

Bills TE Joe Klopfenstein is no longer on the active roster.

The tight end was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Klopfenstein was limited for much of the spring workouts with an indisclosed ailment. No word from the club as to whether that was what led to the I-R assignment. If his injury is not necessarily season ending an injury settlement could wind up being the final resolution. In that case he would be able to play in 2010 for another NFL team, but not the Bills.

With Klopfenstein going on I-R, it leaves four tight ends on the active roster. If another tight end is injured in training camp or the preseason, and expected to be out for a couple of weeks or so, they would likely sign an additional one.

Moving Klopfenstein to I-R also opens up a roster spot meaning if and when Torell Troup signs his rookie contract there will be a vacancy on the active roster for the second-round draft choice.
