Bills waive linebacker Tyrel Dodson following suspension

The Buffalo Bills have waived linebacker Tyrel Dodson.

Dodson served as six-game suspension to start the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy stemming from a misdemeanor guilty plea in Arizona.

Dodson was given a one-week roster exemption after being reinstated last Monday, but the Bills had to make a decision. He could be added to the team's practice squad if he clears waivers Tuesday.

The move was first reported by ESPN's Field Yates.

Dodson had been placed on the commissioner's exempt list before rosters were reduced to 53 players at the end of August.

Dodson, an undrafted free agent from Texas A&M, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in early September. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop a domestic violence charge upon Dodson successfully completing a diversion program, according to the Associated Press.

Dodson originally faced three misdemeanor charges in Scottsdale, Ariz., after a May 25 incident involving his girlfriend. According to the police report, Dodson was arrested at a nightclub after his girlfriend told police he had gotten physical with her during an altercation in their apartment.

Kyle Peko claimed

The Indianapolis Colts have claimed defensive tackle Kyle Peko, who was released by the Bills on Saturday when they promoted defensive tackle Vincent Taylor.

Peko had been promoted from the practice squad to the Bills' 53-man roster when Harrison Phillips had a season-ending knee injury.
