The Bills added their 11th and final member of their initial 2019 practice squad on Tuesday, signing free agent RB Byron Marshall.

Marshall, 25, was just released by the Washington Redskins on Sunday. He appeared in 10 games over the past two seasons for Washington logging 12 carries for 41 yards and 10 receptions for 66 yards.

Originally an undrafted rookie signing of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016, Marshall (5-9, 215) was on the Eagles practice squad in 2016, but was elevated to the active roster and appeared in three games for Philadelphia that year.

The University of Oregon product had over 3,000 total yards from scrimmage in his college career (3,170) along with 27 touchdowns. He had a 1,000-yard rushing season as a sophomore, and then a 1,000-yard receiving season as a junior.

The addition of Marshall gives Buffalo a back capable of being elevated to the active roster in the event of an injury. RB Christian Wade is on the Bills practice squad, but carries an international player designation and will serve the team in that capacity only all season.
