Bills promote DL Mace

The Bills made a roster move on Saturday promoting defensive lineman Corey Mace to the 53-man roster. Mace has spent the first 11 weeks of the season

Mace (6'3", 287) originally joined the Bills as an undrafted free agent in May of 2007. He has spent portions of the 2007 and 2008 seasons on the team's practice squad. In 2008, Mace saw action in three games after being promoted to the 53-man roster on December 6.

The promotion of Mace is in response to the Bills small numbers at the defensive tackle position. John McCargo has been declared out of Sunday's game with a calf injury and starting defensive tackle Marcus Stroud is questionable with a knee injury.

If Stroud is unable to play Sunday, Buffalo would be reduced to just two defensive tackles for the game.

To make room for Mace on the active roster, the Bills released tight end Joe Klopfenstein. Klopfenstein was signed just last week when Derek Fine was placed on injured reserve.

The Bills will enter Sunday's game with only two tight ends in Shawn Nelson and Jonathan Stupar.
