The Bills have signed veteran running back Devonta Freeman to their practice squad.
After the injury to rookie running back Zack Moss in Saturday’s Wild Card game, Freeman provides additional depth at that position for the playoffs.
Freeman was drafted in the fourth round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2014. Freeman, a Florida State product, had two 1,000-plus rushing yard seasons and played in Super Bowl LI for the Falcons. He most recently played for the New York Giants after the injury to Saquon Barkley this season. Freeman appeared in five games and rushed for 172 yards and one touchdown.
In November, Freeman was placed on Injured Reserve with an ankle injury. He was officially waived by the Giants on Jan. 7. Freeman has 6,217 combined total yards and 44 total touchdowns in his seven-year NFL career.
The Bills officially placed Zack Moss on injured reserve. Offensive lineman Jordan Devey has been promted to the 53-man roster. He is in his seventh NFL season and has played in 45 career games including one playoff game for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017. He’s been on the Bills practice squad since Sept. 9 and has seen action in one game this season.
