Bills place second TE on IR in as many weeks

The Buffalo Bills have placed rookie TE Tim Euhus on injured reserve with a right knee injury Tuesday, the second tight end the team has lost in two weeks. Last week the team placed starting TE Mark Campbell on injured reserve after injuring his right knee against Miami on December 5.

Former 3rd stringer Ryan Neufeld started for the Bills last week against the Browns but failed to come down with a reception nor did Campbell's replacement Rodney Trafford. Trafford was signed last week off the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad after spending parts of last season and this preseason with the Bills.

Euhus missed the Bills game the Browns game, as like Campbell, injured his knee in the team's defeat over Miami on December 5. The Bills didn't provide any specifics on the injury, but head coach Mike Mularkey, stated that Euhus may need surgery. The Bills made Tim Euhus a fourth-round pick out of Oregon State this past April, he will finish his season with 11 catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games as the team's primary back up to Mark Campbell.

To replace Euhus the team signed veteran Brad Banta. Banta's been out of football since being released by Detroit Lions prior to the start of this season. Although there has to be some questions why Banta was signed. As for most of his career the 11-year veteran has been spent most of his career as a long snapper and has only two career catches for 13 yards. He spent his first six seasons with the Colts, after the team made him a 4th Round pick out of Southern California in 1994. and has also played with the Jets.
