The Buffalo Bills and wide receiver Brad Smith have come to terms on an injury settlement that allows him to be released from the injured reserve list and makes him eligible for free agency.  Smith suffered a rib injury at the end of the preseason and was moved to injured reserve as part of the team’s effort to reduce their roster to 53.

In the time he spent in Buffalo, Smith played in 30 games, recorded 37 catches for 392 yards and 3 touchdowns.  Smith also carried the ball 34 times for 203 yards and 2 touchdowns in addition to being a kick returner.

It is unclear where the interest is for Smith in the current landscape of the NFL, but he has been able to help teams he has played for in the past and with so many injuries hitting teams, he could find a home relatively quickly.  Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills go on the road to play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field as they hope to improve from their 3-6 record.
