Waiver Wire: Defensive tackle reinforcement options for Bills

Although Sean McDermott said during his Monday press conference he didn't feel there were any injuries to discuss after the Bills' 26-16 victory over the Broncos, let's look at some potential additions they could make to their roster.

Buffalo travels to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in Week Four.

Marcell Dareus was limited in practice Wednesday and said he was taking things day by day. Jerel Worthy is out of the concussion protocol. The Bills released DeAndre Coleman on Tuesday, likely meaning the Bills are confident with their status on the defensive interior.

Should that change, here are two viable options at that spot:

DeShawn Williams, Bengals practice squad: The 6-foot-1, 295-pounder from Clemson had the second-highest PFF pass-rush grade (+4.2) for the Bengals during the 2017 preseason. He had a similar pass-rush grade in 2016 (+4.1). He's only 24 years old and was an undrafted free agent in 2015.

Vance Walker, free agent: Walker spent 2016 on the Broncos' IR list after he suffered an injury that August. In 2015 in Denver, the former Georgia Tech standout had a +11.8 run-stopping grade that featured 25 run-game stops on just 447 snaps. The 30-year-old, 6-foot-2, 304-pound defensive tackle wouldn't provide a ton of pass-rush but could help clog the middle.
