The Buffalo Bills have signed defensive end Kyle Moore off the Detroit Lions' practice squad in a bid to improve their anemic pass rush.
Listed at 6-foot-6 and 272 pounds, Moore was Tampa Bay's fourth-round pick in 2009 draft. He had 28 tackles in 15 games in two seasons with the Buccaneers before being cut in September.
The Bills (5-4), who play at Miami (2-7) on Sunday, have 15 sacks this season - 10 coming in a win over Washington last month.
The Bills also promoted defensive back Josh Nesbitt from their practice squad.
The two players fill the roster spots opened after center Eric Wood (right knee) and linebacker Chris White (right knee) were placed on injured reserve.
Buffalo also re-signed receiver Tim Toone to its practice squad.
BEST OF MAXIM
30-year old LB Nick Barnett has been pretty solid for the Bills this year. He was signed to replace Paul Poslusny (Jaguars) in the middle of the Bills’ D this year and he has been pretty good. Barnett has played in 9 games for the Bills so far this year and he has 71 tackles, 1 sack, 4 tackles for a loss, 1 forced fumble, 3 passes defensed and 2 interceptions (one returned...

Lions quarterbacks Stafford, Hill and Drew Stanton dole out $5 fines for offenses such as frolicking (Hill was docked last year for making an awkward time-out gesture over his head as he ran down the field) and unnecessary bathroom breaks during practice or games. The money is used on dinners and the group's white-elephant Christmas gift exchange.
Appearing in the Bills locker room on crutches Eric Wood confirmed his season is over.
Wood suffered a torn ACL. More on Buffalobills.com later today.
Play calling is one of the more discussed and perhaps misunderstood elements of football. It seems that everyone who enjoys this game fancies themselves as learned play callers and yet just about every coordinator they follow never gets their job quite right. The only play callers that ever seem to get unanimous support are those that happen to have an offense under their command...

"I think we just came out here and didn't play our best," said left guard Rob Sims.
In the aftermath of the Bears’ 37-13 trouncing of the Detroit Lions in which hard hits and cheap shots were prevalent all throughout the game, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh defended his and his team’s style of play, defiantly denying charges that he or any of his teammates are dirty.
