The Bills HC explains why the Bills signed Pro Bowl DT as he talks I to defensive injury crisis…

Buffalo Bills sign DT Linval Joseph, place CB Kaiir Elam on injured reserve.

The Buffalo Bills announced the team has signed defensive tackle Linval Joseph and placed cornerback Kaiir Elam on injured reserve.

Joseph is 35 years old and was originally drafted by the New York Giants in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. The two-time Pro Bowler has played in 179 games and has 664 tackles and 25.5 sacks across his 13-year NFL career. He has played for the Giants, Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles. Joseph was part of the Giants team that won Super Bowl XLVI.

Regarding Elam, on Wednesday Bills GM Brandon Beane said the team was considering “shutting him down” due to him dealing with a nagging ankle injury. Beane said the injury has been a factor in why he hasn’t been active each week. The former first-round pick has played in just three games this season.

This has been a busy week of roster moves for the Bills.

Earlier this week the team traded for Green Bay Packers cornerback Rasul Douglas and signed running back Leonard Fournette to the practice squad.

These moves add depth for the Bills who are without cornerback Tre’Davious White, linebacker Matt Milano, defensive tackle DaQuan Jones and running back Damien Harris who have all been placed on injured reserve.
