The Buffalo Bills are making a switch at left guard by releasing starter Colin Brown in a move that opens the door for Doug Legursky.
Brown was cut Tuesday, two days after his season-long struggles continued in a 27-24 overtime loss to Cincinnati. Brown split playing time with Legursky over the past two weeks before being benched in the second half last weekend.
Coach Doug Marrone expressed unhappiness with Brown's performance since training camp. Legursky missed the first four games with a knee injury.
The Bills (2-4), who play at Miami (3-2) on Sunday, filled Brown's roster spot by promoting offensive lineman Mark Asper off their practice squad.
Buffalo also shuffled its practice squad by signing offensive lineman Bryant Browning and linebacker Jacquies Smith, and releasing defensive end Jamie Blatnick.

Matt Leinart was smart enough to figure out that his time with the Buffalo Bills would be short-lived.
The team cut him Friday and will keep three QBs on the roster: rookie EJ Manuel Kevin Kolb and Jeff Tuel.
Manuel is recovering from minor knee surgery and Kolb is out with a concussion. Tuel will start the Sept. 8 season opener becoming the first undrafted rookie quarterback to...
As other teams have found out over the years, Matt Leinart isn’t the answer. That’s the lesson the Buffalo Bills learned after giving him a shot last night against the Detroit Lions. To be fair to Leinart, he was completely underprepared to be thrown into the Bills’ lineup, and he wasn’t necessarily working with the team’s best group of players either. Still, he needed...
The Buffalo Bills might have to start an undrafted free agent at quarterback in Week 1 but apparently that's not a good enough reason to keep Matt Leinart around.
Leinart the 10th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft tweeted on Friday that he's been released by the Bills. Although Leinart later deleted the tweet this is the internet and nothing is really ever deleted forever...

Buffalo, NY- Buffalobills.com reports that the Bills have officially placed veteran QB Kevin Kolb on season ending injured reserve list.
Many thought Kolb could turn his career around in Buffalo after taking numerous beatings in Philadelphia, then Arizona. Buffalo is known for a solid offensive line. That wasn’t the case this...
Concussions might lead to the end of Kolb’s career.
I tweeted 15 minutes ago that the #Bills placed QB Kevin Kolb on injured reserve, they also placed WR Brad Smith per @JoeBuscaglia.

The only encouraging news to come out of the Buffalo Bills' preseason finale occurred about 90 minutes before the opening kickoff.
That's when rookie first-round pick EJ Manuel, dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, tested his injured left knee by throwing numerous passes to several teammates and coaches.
Otherwise, what followed was a meltdown for the Bills (2-2), who unraveled...
