Rookie LB Harris becomes 19th Bills player to hit injured reserve

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills signed offensive tackle Nick Hennessey off their practice squad Friday and placed rookie linebacker Nic Harris on season-ending injured reserve leading up to this weekend's season finale against the Indianapolis Colts.

Harris becomes the 19th Bills player placed on IR after he sustained a knee injury against the Atlanta Falcons last weekend. His injury reduces a banged-up linebacking corps to five healthy players.

Safety/linebacker Bryan Scott has been ruled out of the Colts game because of a head injury. Bills starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (ankle) is probable and expected to play after missing last weekend's game.
