Mark Anderson out again vs. Jets; WR Kevin Elliott promoted to active roster

By Jay Skurski

Mark Anderson's first season with the Buffalo Bills is over.

The defensive end was ruled out of Sunday's season finale against the New York Jets today because of a knee injury that has kept him out since he was hurt in Week Five against the San Francisco 49ers. Anderson, who signed a four-year, $19.5 million contract to join the Bills, finishes his season with 12 tackles and one sack in five games.

Safety Da'Norris Searcy was also ruled out for Sunday's game because of a groin injury. The rest of the Bills' injury report lists 12 players as probable: S Jairus Byrd (ankle), G Andy Levitre (knee), WR Ruvell Martin (not injury related), DT Kyle Williams (ankle), LB Nick Barnett (knee), FB Dorin Dickerson (ankle), WR Marcus Easley (hamstring), CB Justin Rogers (foot), LB Chris White (hamstring), C Eric Wood (knee), RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) and DE Mario Williams (wrist).

The Bills also announced this afternoon that they promoted wide receiver Kevin Elliott to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. Elliott, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, is an undrafted rookie free agent from Florida A&M.
