Bills bring back DT Jay Ross; make practice squad change

The Buffalo Bills today filled the roster spot created Monday when defensive end Alex Carrington was placed on injured reserve by re-signing defensive lineman Jay Ross.

Ross, 25, is a 6-foot-3, 319-pounder who was released two weeks ago after making the 53-man roster out of training camp. The East Carolina product played in one game for the Bills last season, spending most of the year on the team's practice squad. Ross was released after being inactive for the season opener against the New England Patriots due to a numbers crunch at cornerback. The team lost Ron Brooks in Week One, and promoted Johnny Adams from the practice squad to take his place.

Carrington had surgery for a torn quad Monday, an injury that ended his season.

The Bills also made a change to their practice squad, releasing defensive end Izaan Cross and signing defensive end Adewale Ojomo.

Ojomo, 24, is a 6-foot-4, 270-pounder who played in college at Miami. He joined the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2012, appearing in one game. He was most recently on the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad.
