ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (June 5, 2006) -- Quarterback Kliff Kingsbury was claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills after Craig Ochs was injured playing in NFL Europe.
Kingsbury is a Texas Tech product, who spent the final 13 weeks of last season as a backup with the New York Jets. He made one appearance for the Jets, completing two passes for 17 yards against Denver on Nov. 20.
Kingsbury spent this spring playing for NFL Europe Cologne.
Ochs sustained an undisclosed injury playing in Frankfurt's season finale last month. He has been placed on the Bills NFL Europe injury list.
Kingsbury broke into the NFL as New England's sixth-round pick in the 2003 draft, but spent his rookie season on injured reserve. He also spent time on New Orleans and Denver's practice squads.
