WR Toone returns

WR Tim Toone re-joined Buffalo’s practice squad Tuesday.

Toone had spent a couple of weeks on Buffalo’s practice squad earlier this season after Naaman Roosevelt was called up to the active roster. Toone now replaces DB Josh Nesbitt, who was elevated to the 53-man squad after Chris White and Eric Wood went on I-R.

Bills add practice squad WR

The Bills did not make a move with respect to their 53-man roster Tuesday, but they did make an addition to their practice squad.

Buffalo signed free agent WR Tim Toone to their practice squad. The 5’10” 185-pound wideout was most recently with the Detroit Lions where he served the past two seasons on the club’s practice squad.

A former 7th-round pick of the Lions (2010) Toone caught 167 passes over the last two seasons of his college career at Weber State, and finished his career with 29 TD receptions. In 2009, Toone caught 83 passes for 1,104 yards and 10 touchdowns. He averaged 19.9 yards on punt returns including two touchdowns.

To make room on the practice squad for Toone, the Bills released DB Brandon Bing.

With respect to the 53-man roster I wouldn’t anticipate a move this week. I think the Bills are going to assess their options and how well they fare offensively against the Giants and then go into the bye week and re-assess everything.
