Bills Place Two on Injured Reserve, Sign Offensive Tackle Jamon Meredith


September 22, 2009

The Bills placed tight end Derek Schouman and right tackle Brad Butler on injured reserve on Tuesday, then signed offensive tackle Jamon Meredith off Green Bay's practice squad to help restore an already deflated offensive line.

Tight end Jonathan Stupar was also promoted from Buffalo's practice squad, according to Schouman and Butler both suffered season-ending right knee injuries in a 33-20 win over Tampa Bay in Week 2.

Bills head coach Dick Jauron told reporters on Monday that Butler would undergo surgery after the back of his legs were rolled over by Buccaneers defensive lineman Stylez White in the second quarter of Sunday's game. Schouman was carted off the field after making a 6-yard catch.

Buffalo tight end Shawn Nelson's status is also in question after straining his shoulder.

Meredith was drafted by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2009 draft but did not make the roster. Bowen was drafted by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2008 draft but missed last season after suffering a knee injury in training camp.
