The Buffalo Bills are signing OT Jordan Mills off of the Detroit Lions practice squad.

Buffalo needs an offensive tackle after Seantrel Henderson went down with a concussion on Sunday.

The Buffalo Bills lost offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson to a concussion on Sunday. There's no telling how long Henderson will be out of action, but it appears the Bills feel he won't be able to play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Henderson's injury left the Bills with two offensive tackles: Cordy Glenn and Cyrus Kouandjio. To add depth, Buffalo plans on signing offensive tackle Jordan Mills. Pro Football Talk was the first to report the news.

Mills, a fifth round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, was on the Detroit Lions practice squad before being contacted by the Bills. The right tackle was drafted by the Chicago Bears where he started in 29 games in two seasons. He fractured a bone in his left foot in a Week 17 contest in 2014. Chicago waived Mills this season on September 6. The Cowboys claimed him after his stint with the Bears, but Mills was released one week later. Since then, Mills has been on Detroit's practice squad. 

If something were to happen to Cyrus Kouandjio, the Bills will feel confident playing Mills. The right tackle is very familiar with Aaron Kromer's blocking schemes.
