Roosevelt to 53-man roster, Parrish to IR

The ankle injury suffered by Roscoe Parrish on Sunday has proven to be season ending.

Parrish was placed on injured reserve by the Bills this afternoon. His spot on the 53-man roster will be filled by Buffalo native Naaman Roosevelt, who for the second straight season has been promoted from the practice squad.

Parrish was hurt in the second quarter against the Raiders. It's the second straight season he's seen cut short by injury. He missed the second half of 2010 after breaking his wrist against the Bears in Toronto.

Roosevelt played in six games for the Bills as a rookie last season, catching nine passes for 139 yards.

The Bills also reached an injury settlement with linebacker Robert Eddins, releasing him from injured reserve, and signed guard Keith Williams to the practice squad. Williams is a 6-foot-5, 310-pounder who was a sixth-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in April.
