With several players dealing with serious injuries, the Buffalo Bills have made several roster moves. 

Buffalo has placed both wide receiver Walt Powell and defensive tackle Corbin Bryant on injured reserve, ending their seasons. 

To take their roster spots, the Bills have promoted wide receiver Dez Lewis and defensive tackle Deandre Coleman from their practice squad. 

Powell suffered an ankle injury during Buffalo's 28-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, while Bryant has missed the last three weeks with a shoulder injury. 

Lewis has been a member of the Bills' practice squad for almost two seasons, and was activated for one game last season. He has zero catches in his brief NFL career. Coleman, a 2014 undrafted free agent, has played in five NFL games in his career, all with the Miami Dolphins. 

The Bills have also brought back tight end Gerald Christian to the practice squad. Christian has bounced between the active roster, practice squad and free agency all season. 

Meanwhile, the team still has an open roster spot due to the suspension of offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson.Our own Sal Cappacio confirms a report from FOX Sports' Peter Schrager that the Bills are going to sign Detroit Lions tight end Logan Thomas from their practice squad. Thomas was a former quarterback who completed 1-of-9 passes in his career with the Arizona Cardinals, and has moved to tight end.
