To make room for the signing of QB Matt Flynn on the 53-man roster, the Bills placed S Jonathan Meeks on injured reserve, designated to return.

Meeks suffered a lower right leg injury. He was seen in Buffalo’s locker room Monday morning with an immobilizer boot on his right foot. The rookie was injured in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Bengals on a special teams play and did not return.

Meeks was Buffalo’s fifth-round pick this past spring and has appeared in all six games mainly on special teams.

Under the rules of I-R designated to return, Meeks can return to practice with the team in six weeks at the earliest, which would be Week 13, following the team’s bye week.

The earliest he would be able to be placed back on the active roster is in eight weeks, which would be Monday Dec. 9th.
