ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (Oct. 12, 2005) -- Defensive tackle Ron Edwards was placed on injured reserve by the Buffalo Bills, his season over after shoulder surgery last week.
It's the second time in three years Edwards' season ended early because of a shoulder injury. In 2003, he went on IR after five games.
Edwards was hurt in Buffalo's 19-7 loss to New Orleans on Oct. 2. He's the second Bills defensive starter to be lost for season: Linebacker Takeo Spikes tore his right Achilles' tendon in a loss to Atlanta on Sept. 25.
The Bills filled Edwards' roster spot by signing defensive tackle Jason Jefferson off Philadelphia's practice squad. A rookie out of Wisconsin, Jefferson was drafted by New Orleans in the sixth round of the draft in April.
The Bills also signed offensive lineman Marques Ogden to their practice squad, replacing cornerback Evan Oglesby, who was released.
