Bills place Hairston on PUP list
As the Buffalo Bills announced the release of defensive end Mark Anderson, the team also included another move that opens a roster spot. The Bills have placed offensive tackle Chris Hairston the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Termed a lower body injury by the team, Hairston will not be able to participate in practices for the start of training camp. He was expected to compete with Erik Pears for the starting right tackle job.
With it still being ahead of the season, Hairston will remain on the PUP list until he can pass the team's physical. If that designation is not removed by the time the season starts, the earliest Hairston would be able to play for the Bills is six weeks in to the regular season.
With the transactions, the Bills have three open roster spots to fill if they so choose.
