Ankou has had previous stints with the Bills (4-3). Most recently, Ankou was in Buffalo during training camp over the summer and was on the team’s practice squad after being part of final roster cuts.
Initially, Ankou joined the team in 2021 during training camp but eventually returned later that season where he stuck around on the practice squad through earlier this year.

Ankou, 29, is a signing that makes sense for the team because of their recent lack of depth at the position. The Bills have since lost DaQuan Jones (pectoral) for an extended period and Ed Oliver (toe) did not play last week.
With Ankou’s familiarity with the defensive system Sean McDermott’s defense runs, there is a possibility he’s brought up from the practice squad immediately to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3) on Thursday.
