  • Eli Ankou: Inks practice-squad deal

    The Bills signed Ankou to the practice squad Monday. Ankou was previously let go with an injury settlement by Buffalo in late August after sustaining a hamstring injury in the team's final preseason game. However, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports that the 28-year-old is healthy again and ready to play this season. Ankou will serve as a potential gameday elevation behind banged-up defensive tackles Ed Oliver (ankle) and Jordan Phillips (hamstring).

  • Bills' Eli Ankou: Returns to practice Thursday

    Ankou (calf) was removed from the Bills' active/PUP list Thursday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. Ankou appeared back at practice in full pads for the first time since picking up a calf strain July 24. The 28-year-old played for five teams over his first five seasons, including six games for the Bills from Week 8 onward last year. Ankou totaled nine tackles with one sack during his time with Buffalo in 2021, and he should compete with Brandin Bryant, Prince Emili and C.J. Brewer for a reserve defensive tackle role with the team this preseason.

  • Bills' Eli Ankou: Heads to Buffalo

    The Bills will sign Ankou to a contract this week, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. The Bills have been operating under the max number of roster spots allowed at this point of the offseason, so they'll be adding a few more bodies ahead of training camp next month. Ankou has floated around several NFL rosters and will have a big hill to climb to make the team, as the Bills already are running pretty deep at defensive line and may have a harsh cut or two to make ahead of the season.

    The Texans activated Ankou off the commisioner's exempt list Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. The Colts waived Ankou on Saturday, and the Texans claimed him off waivers.
