ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Fifteen Buffalo Bills players are on injured reserve after backup defensive end Ryan Denney was placed on the season-ending list Wednesday.
Denney is out after hurting his foot in an 8-0 loss at Cleveland last weekend. The Bills did not specify whether the injury was to Denney's left foot, which he broke during a preseason game in August and led to him missing the first seven games this season.
A six-year NFL veteran, Denney had 37 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery and forced fumble in seven games, including two starts, this season.
Denney becomes Buffalo's eighth defensive player placed on IR.
The Bills (7-7), eliminated from playoff contention, have been relegated to the role of spoiler Sunday, when they host the New York Giants (9-5) in Buffalo's home finale.
To fill Denney's place on the roster, the Bills claimed offensive tackle Patrick Estes off waivers, a day after he was released by San Francisco. The 49ers' seventh-round pick in the 2005 draft out of Virginia, Estes had appeared in nine career games, including one this season.
