On Monday Bills head coach Chan Gailey admitted his offensive line is depleted with four players injured. A day later Buffalo made a move to address the deficiency signing free agent OL Reggie Wells. To make room on the roster for Wells the Bills placed OL Colin Brown on injured reserve.
Wells, a 10-year NFL veteran, originally entered the NFL as a sixth round draft choice of the Arizona Cardinals and spent the first seven years of his career with the club. In 2010, he played in eight games and started one for the Philadelphia Eagles. He appeared in five games in 2011 for the Carolina Panthers. Wells (6'4" 320) has played in 117 career games with 91 starts.
Brown tore his hamstring on the Bills field goal attempt in the first half of Sunday's loss at San Francisco. The reserve guard/center was making his first start of the season as he was filling in for the injured Chad Rinehart at right guard.
