ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills placed linebacker Angelo Crowell on season-ending injured reserve today, and signed linebacker Roy Manning.

Crowell, who is second on the Bills with 95 tackles, broke a bone in his lower left leg in last weekend's 24-21 loss to San Diego. He's the sixth player the Bills have placed on IR this season.

Manning broke in with Green Bay last season as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan and finished with 34 tackles in 15 games, including two starts.

Green Bay released him in early September. He signed with Houston and played in one game for the Texans before being released October 20th.
