BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Bills announced the team has activated wide receiver John Brown from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Brown was activated from injured reserve Monday but placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list due to being identified as a close contact of running back T.J. Yeldon who was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list December 27.

The Bills also announced a series of other roster moves Friday morning.

The team activated Josh Thomas and Christian Wade from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and placed them on the practice squad.

Wide receiver J.J. Nelson and cornerback Duke Thomas were signed to the practice squad and offensive lineman Marquel Harrell, linebacker Deon Lacey and cornerback Lafayette Pitts were released from the practice squad.

The Bills finish the regular season Sunday at home against the Miami Dolphins, with a win the team would secure the number two seed in the AFC.
