ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills signed receiver Kenny Stills and former Wyoming receiver Tanner Gentry to their practice squad on Monday, adding valuable experienced depth to their roster in time for the playoffs.
Stills is an eighth-year player who was cut by the Texans in late November after having difficulty establishing a role in Houston’s offense with 11 catches for 144 yards and a touchdown.
In Buffalo, he joins the AFC East champion Bills (13-3) who are preparing to host the Indianapolis Colts (11-5) in a wild-card playoff game on Saturday.
Stills provides Buffalo insurance in the event starter Cole Beasley remains sidelined with a knee injury that forced him to miss a season-ending 56-26 win over Miami on Sunday. Beasley is listed week to week and his status is uncertain for this week.
Coach Sean McDermott last week said the Bills’ interest in Stills was unrelated to Beasley’s injury.
Gentry spent the 2017 season with the Chicago Bears following a senior season at Wyoming where he played with Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
