Bills re-sign DL Ross 2 weeks after cutting him

The Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills are bringing back defensive lineman Jay Ross two weeks after cutting him.

Ross was re-signed Tuesday, a day after defensive end Alex Carrington was placed on season-ending injured reserve because of a torn left quadriceps. Ross spent parts of the past two seasons on Buffalo's practice squad.

He had made the Bills opening-week roster before being cut on Sept. 10, when the team promoted cornerback Johnny Adams from the practice squad.

In a separate move Tuesday, the Bills signed defensive end Adewale Ojomo to the practice squad and released defensive end Izaan Cross.

An undrafted free agent out of Miami, Ojomo played one game last season with the New York Giants.

The Bills (1-2) host Baltimore (2-1) on Sunday.

  • South Dakota State ran the craziest trick play at the goal line and scored

    North Dakota State has won five straight FCS championships, so it’s going to take some extra effort from South Dakota State to knock the Bison off. Perhaps that was in the back of Jackrabbits’ coaches’ minds when the offense pulled off this incredible trick play on a first-and-goal early in their playoff game: Wow. From another angle in GIF form: That is some sneaky stuff right there. They basically hid a short runner who knelt behind the line, quietly waited a few seconds after the snap and let him run as the defense bit on the fake quarterback run the other way. See? I told you FCS football is awesome.

    BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Fresh off scoring a hat trick, Turkey midfielder Arda Turan is hoping for another chance to prove he can play alongside Barcelona’s best. With Neymar suspended for Saturday’s Spanish league match at Osasuna, Turan is likely to take his spot next to Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the defending champion’s vaunted attack. Turan filled in superbly for Neymar on Tuesday when he scored his first hat trick for Barcelona to lead the team to a 4-0 victory over Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Champions League. The treble took Turan’s scoring total for the season to eight goals, making him Barcelona’s third-leading scorer behind Messi (20) and Suarez (12). Even though nobody doubts

In an effort to free up a roster spot, raise money and have fewer left-handed hitting outfielders, the Mets spent time talking with teams about Jay Bruce, though they reportedly saw more interest in Curtis Granderson and Michael Conforto, which is understandable. In the end, I expect the Mets will eventually trade Bruce and one of two things will happen, 1) They'll get back a big-league reliever making a decent
