Buffalo Bills Daily Roundup: Buffalo loses practice squad defensive end

The Daily Roundup brings you all the Buffalo Bills news you need to know, including the Minnesota Vikings signing defensive end Eddie Yarbrough from the practice squad

The Buffalo Bills are preparing for their game Saturday against the Houston Texans, but there’s one less guy who will be helping in practice. The Minnesota Vikings signed defensive end Eddie Yarbrough off the Bills practice squad.

Yarbrough, 26-years old, is in his final season of eligibility on the practice squad, and his third season with the Bills. Undrafted in 2016 out of Wyoming, he spent his first season out of the NFL after failing to make the Denver Broncos roster.

In Buffalo, he played 31 games in 2017 and 2018 and recorded 63 tackles and a sack in those games. He spent all of 2019 on the practice squad.

That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Roundup.

“Most recently, Castillo was the offensive line coach and running game coordinator for Sean McDermott with the Buffalo Bills in 2017 and 2018 and was fired after the 2018 season. The Bills were sixth in rushing in 2017 and ninth in 2018.”

The Bills went in a different direction on the ground game this season and it worked for them. Chicago landed a good coach here that should help Chicago’s ground game improve in 2020.
