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.
