The Buffalo Bills activated IK Enemkpali to their 53-man roster. Andre Fluellen was released to make room for Enemkpali.

The Bills activated IK Enemkpali to their 53-man roster on Friday.

According to one of Ian Rapoport's sources, the Buffalo Bills are activating I.K. Enemkpali to their 53-man roster. Apparently, the Bills are afraid that another team would steal the defensive end off of their practice squad.


Yesterday, John Wawrow of the Associated Press reported that Enemkpali would be suspended four games for punching Jets quarterback Geno Smith on August 11. The locker room altercation took place over $600 that Smith owed Enemkpali. New York released Enemkpali immediately following the incident and his former head coach Rex Ryan claimed him on waivers the next day.

Enemkpali recorded 11 combined tackles in four preseason games with the Bills. Pro Football Focus credited the defensive end with three quarterback hits, seven quarterback hurries and five defensive stops. Although Enemkpali showed flashes of ability to get after the quarterback, he was also penalized four times in the preseason. His penalties went a long way in the Bills releasing him on September 4. That said, the Bills clearly liked the defensive end as they placed him on their practice squad.

Now, it appears the Bills will move him to the main roster.

UPDATE: The Bills officially moved Enemkpali to their 53-man roster. To make room for the defensive end, Buffalo released defensive tackle Andre Fluellen.
