Buffalo Bills sign WR Tim Toone to practice squad
The Buffalo Bills have signed receiver Tim Toone to their
practice squad, adding depth to a banged-up position.
Toone spent his rookie season last year on the Lions practice
squad after being drafted in the seventh round by Detroit. He had
3,602 yards receiving and 29 touchdowns in 46 career games at Weber
He was signed Tuesday, a day after coach Chan Gailey said
starting receiver Donald Jones will miss between four and six weeks
with a sprained ankle. Jones was hurt in a 31-24 win over
Philadelphia on Sunday.
The Bills (4-1) already have two receivers on injured reserve in
preparing to play at the New York Giants (3-2) on Sunday.
To make room for Toone, the Bills released defensive back
Brandon Bing from their practice squad.
