Bills add OL Rinehart to practice squad

The Bills signed offensive lineman Chad Rinehart to their practice squad Monday. To make room for Rinehart, defensive end Sunny Harris was released from the PS.

Rinehart, 6-foot-5 and 307 pounds, originally joined the NFL as a third-round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2008. He did not play and was inactive for 13 games as a rookie. He made four starts in 2009 at right guard, but was placed on injured reserve after breaking his fibula in a game at Dallas.

A product of Northern Iowa, where he played left tackle, Rinehart was most recently on the New York Jets' practice squad. The Jets released him Oct. 12. 

Rinehart, 25, paid $195 in fines in June after an Iowa judge found him guilty of public intoxication. He was arrested in January in Cedar Falls, Iowa, for pulling on a locked door of a local pizzeria.
