Bills place CB McGee, OT Pears on IR

The SportsXchange

The Buffalo Bills placed cornerback Terrence McGee and offensive tackle Erik Pears on injured reserve.

The Bills were hoping McGee could return from a knee injury that has plagued him all season to provide a much-needed veteran presence to the secondary. Pears did not travel with the team to face the Houston Texans last Sunday due to a hip injury.

One of the roster spots was filled by wide receiver Marcus Easley, who was promoted from the practice squad.

Easley, a fourth-round pick out of UConn in 2010, was cleared to resume playing in February after treatment for a heart condition, but didn't make the season-opening roster. Easley spent all of 2011 on injured reserve after spending all of 2010 on IR with a knee injury.

The Bills also released kicker John Potter.

Wide receiver Chris Hogan was signed to the practice squad. Hogan, a 6-1, 220-pound Monmouth (N.J.) product entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with San Francisco in 2011. He spent a portion of 2011 on the Practice Squads of the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins.
