The Buffalo Bills held on for a close 27-24 win in their Wild Card matchup against the Indianapolis Colts to advance to the Divisional Round. However, running back Zack Moss suffered an ankle injury against the Colts, and is set to miss the rest of the postseason.
To make up for the loss of Moss, Buffalo is adding former Pro Bowler Devonta Freeman to their practice squad.
Moss and fellow running back Devin Singletary have split lead back duties this season, with neither fully able to capture the RB1 role. Adding Freeman at least gives the Bills another option at running back if they feel Singletary isn't ready to step into a workhorse-level load.
Freeman appeared in five games for the New York Giants this season, totaling 172 yards on 54 carries. The RB last appeared prominently for the Atlanta Falcons, racking up 656 yards and 2 TDs on the ground in 14 starts, along with 59 receptions for 410 yards and 4 TDs. He earned two Pro Bowl selections with Atlanta in 2015 and 2016.
Freeman provides a receiving threat out of the backfield that could be useful for a Bills offense that revolves around Josh Allen. Buffalo will need any weapons it can find if it hopes to break through a stout Baltimore Ravens defense on Sunday.
