The Buffalo Bills have released 12 players in the past two days, first by cutting veteran defensive lineman Alan Branch then making 11 more roster moves Monday, but the biggest wave of cuts will come later this week.

The Bills play their final preseason game Thursday at 7 p.m. against the Detroit Lions at Ralph Wilson, and will then have until Saturday at 4 p.m. to trim their active roster to 53 players.

Which players will survive the next round of cuts? Furthermore, how should the team’s depth chart stack up heading into Week 1? And among the players who will be cut, who are the best candidates for the team’s 10-man practice squad?

If you thought the Buffalo Bills would be done making roster moves when the 53-man roster deadline hit Saturday, you would have been mistaken. Sunday is arguably an even busier day for NFL roster moves, as teams claim players off waivers from other teams, sign players to their practice squads and often release more players to make room for their new additions.

The Bills may be done making cuts — by cutting their roster down to 50 players on Saturday, they left room to make a few additions without having to make any subsequent drops. They should, however, be expected to fill their open roster spots as well as all eight spots on their practice squad.

The Bills have begun the process of filling those open roster spots, announcing five practice squad additions and one roster addition Sunday afternoon. As the team continues to fill the remaining spots, we will update this post as they are officially announced.
