Bills add defensive tackle Kyle Peko to roster

The Buffalo Bills have added defensive tackle Kyle Peko to the 53-man roster from their practice squad and placed Harrison Phillips on injured reserve.

Phillips tore an anterior cruciate ligament late in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Peko, 25, spent last season with the Bills on the practice squad and was with the team throughout the offseason and training camp. He was released and signed to the practice squad when rosters were cut down before Week 1.

Peko's wife was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in June and he arrived a day late to training camp to be with his family. Giuliana Peko announced in early September that she was cancer free.

Peko, 6 feet, 1 inch and 305 pounds, spent his first two seasons with the Denver Broncos after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2016 out of Oregon State. He has appeared in seven games with eight tackles.

The Bills also signed linebacker Nate Hall to the practice squad and released linebacker Curtis Akins, who signed last week.
