The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday that wide receiver Cole Beasley has been placed on the Active/NFI list with an upper body injury.
The extent of the injury and how it occurred isn’t known, but the Bills can now keep Beasley on the 80-man roster while he recovers from the injury. The non-football injury list is a designation for players who suffered an injury not related to a football game/practice. If Beasley isn’t ready to play by final roster cutdown the team would have to place him on the reserve/non-football injury list. In that case he wouldn’t count against the team’s 53-man roster limit but wouldn’t be able to play or practice for the first six weeks of the season.
Beasley had a career year in his first season with the Bills. In 2019, the WR saw career-highs in touchdowns (6) and yards per reception average (11.6). Beasley also caught 67 passes for 778 receiving yards.
