PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills tight end Tony Moeaki is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury.

Bills coach Doug Marrone provided an update before the team's Saturday night practice. Marrone said Moeaki will miss a "significant" amount of time, but likely won't miss the remainder of Buffalo's training camp. Moeaki suffered the injury at practice on Friday.

The hamstring injury is the latest injury setback for the 27-year-old.

A third-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2010, Moeaki showed promise as a rookie by catching 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns.

But he missed the 2011 season due to a torn ACL and was waived by Kansas City in 2013 after fracturing his shoulder.

Moeaki has been pushing incumbent Scott Chandler for the starting tight end job at training camp.

The Bills are also without second-year tight end Chris Gragg, who recently spent time in the hospital with heat-related cramps. Marrone said Gragg should return sometime next week.

The Bills signed Dominique Jones on Saturday. To make room for Jones, the team released guard Mark Asper. It's the second time Asper has been cut by the Bills; he originally entered the NFL with Buffalo as a sixth-round pick in 2012, but failed to make the team.

Jones has two seasons of NFL experience since the Indianapolis Colts signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He played parts of two seasons with the Colts and finished last year with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Overall, the 26-year-old has three catches for 42 yards in 12 career games, including three starts.

Marrone also said that running back Fred Jackson will likely not miss much time with a lower leg injury. Jackson left practice Friday night after being kicked in the leg.
