The Bills have waived wide receiver Greg Salas with an injury settlement, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN. This won’t necessarily end Salas’ tenure in Buffalo, though, as Mike Rodak of ESPN notes the team could re-sign him when it’s eligible to in three weeks (Twitter links).
Salas recorded four catches, 89 yards and his first career receiving touchdown in a 37-31 loss to the Jets in Week 2, but that might go down as his final game of 2016. The 28-year-old suffered a groin injury in practice prior to Week 3 and ended up landing on IR on Oct. 7. Salas joined the Bills last year and was previously a member of the Rams and Jets, with whom he combined for 43 receptions and 574 yards from 2011-14.
Given that Salas has barely played this year, his exit from the organization won’t affect the offense going forward. Injuries at wideout – including to No. 1 option Sammy Watkins – have beset the Bills all season, which is why the club brought Percy Harvin out of retirement Tuesday.
