Hawthorne cleared to practice; WR Sam waived

The Bills had another receiver back on the practice field Friday afternoon, as C.J. Hawthorne was taken off the physically unable to perform list. Hawthorne had missed the entire spring with a foot injury, and had to eventually have surgery performed near the close of minicamp.

The procedure left him not quite ready to participate in practice at training camp. But after missing just eight practices, Hawthorne was able to rejoin his teammates.

Meanwhile another receiver is no longer on the roster in any capacity. P.K. Sam was put on the waived/injured list Wednesday with a quad injury. He cleared waivers late Thursday as no team claimed him reverting him back to Buffalo's roster.

But instead of keeping him on injured reserve for the whole season with a minor injury the club waived Sam. Buffalo's roster total is at 80.
