 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills cornerback Ashton Youboty was placed on season-ending injured reserve Friday due to a foot injury, further depleting Buffalo's already banged-up defense.
The third-year player who had served as the team's nickel back this season had missed the past three games with plantar fasciitis. Fourth-year linebacker Teddy Lehman, who was released by Detroit this summer, was signed to fill Youboty's roster spot.
Youboty becomes the fifth Bills player placed on IR, and leaves the team without an experienced cornerback behind starters Terrence McGee and Jabari Greer. Rookie first-round draft pick Leodis McKelvin and rookie fourth-rounder Reggie Corner will be the backups.

Right guard Jason Whittle (back) and linebacker Kawika Mitchell (ankle) are both questionable after being limited in practice this week. If Whittle can't play, Kirk Chambers would likely be his replacement.
The injury to Youboty is the latest blow to his career, after the Bills' 2006 third-round pick missed 18 games over his first two seasons. Youboty beat out veteran William James to make the team out of training camp, and had a forced a fumble and a sack in five games, including two starts this season.
Lehman's addition bolsters a linebacking corps that has three players, including starter Angelo Crowell, on injured reserve.
Detroit's second-round pick in the 2004 draft, Lehman had 165 tackles, two interceptions and a sack in 41 games, including 16 starts with the Lions. He signed with Tampa Bay in March, but was cut by the team in July. Lehman re-signed with the Lions, but was cut prior to the start of the season.
