Bills waive pair of DBs

The Buffalo Bills made a couple of roster moves prior to their afternoon practice Wednesday. Cornerback Cris Hill and safety Josh Nesbitt were waived-injured by the club.

Hill was an undrafted cornerback out of Virginia Tech that missed most of training camp due to injury. He did manage to suit up for each of Buffalo's first two preseason games registering a pair of tackles against Minnesota last week.

Nesbitt was a member of the Bills practice squad last season, and was promoted to the active roster last November, but did not appear in a game.

The safety has been battling injury since the spring practices and showed very little in the way of improvement in training camp. He was inactive for the Minnesota preseason game, but had a pair of tackles in the preseason opener against Washington.

The release of the two defensive backs puts Buffalo's roster total at 86. The Bills must reduce their roster to 75 players by Monday, Aug. 27th by 4 pm.
