Linebacker Antonio Coleman is back with the Buffalo Bills after being signed off the New York Giants' practice squad.

Coleman is familiar with Buffalo's defense after playing in eight games with the Bills as an undrafted rookie last year. The Auburn product was then among the Buffalo's final cuts prior to the start of this season.

The move, announced by the Bills on Wednesday, comes a day after starting linebacker Shawne Merriman was placed on injured reserve due to a nagging Achilles tendon injury that will require surgery.

The Bills (4-2) return from their bye week off to prepare to ''host'' the Washington Redskins (3-3) on Sunday in Buffalo's annual home game at Toronto.
