Bills Promote Former Patriots DB
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP)
The Buffalo Bills have released veteran tight end David Martin to make room to promote cornerback Terrence Wheatley from their practice squad.
Martin is a 10-year veteran who was into his second season with Buffalo. Used mostly as a blocker, he had no catches while appearing in all three games this season.
Wheatley was promoted on Tuesday to add depth to an injury-depleted defensive backfield. Veteran starter Terrence McGee is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, while rookie Aaron Williams is out indefinitely after hurting his collarbone in a 34-31 win over New England last weekend.
New England's 2008 second-round pick, Wheatley appeared in only 11 games with the Patriots before being released in November.
The Bills (3-0) travel to play at Cincinnati (1-2) on Sunday.
