Corto added to roster; Harris cut

Bills safety Jon Corto was taken off the physically unable to perform list and added to the 53-man roster on Friday. Corto had been sidelined since injuring his wrist in the June minicamp. Subsequent surgery forced him to miss all of training camp, preseason and the first six weeks of the season.

Even though he wasn't playing, the Orchard Park native was a constant presence at the facility, diligently working out to maintain his conditioning. The hard work has paid off with a roster spot for the third straight season.

Corto is expected to play Sunday at Baltimore. A standout on special teams, he should provide a boast to the Bills' kickoff and punt coverage units, which are ranked in lower half of the NFL.

To make room on the roster for Corto, the Bills released free safety Cary Harris. A late-round draft pick in 2009, Harris moved from cornerback to safety late last season. WIth the Bills' depth at safety, Harris wasn't going to play on defense unless a serious injury occurred. Since Corto is much better on special teams, Harris was expendable.
