ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Buffalo Bills have released receiver Brad Smith off of their injured-reserve list.

The move, announced Friday, comes 10 weeks after Smith hurt his ribs in Buffalo's preseason-finale against Detroit.

Smith was entering his eighth NFL season, and third with Buffalo. He's a versatile dual-threat on offence, known for his ability to play receiver and quarterback in wildcat formations.

He became expendable because the Bills have essentially abandoned running the wildcat under new coach Doug Marrone.

The Bills also spent the off-season retooling the receiver position by drafting Robert Woods in the second round and Marquise Goodwin in the third.

Smith had one year left on a four-year, $15 million contract he signed with Buffalo. He spent his first five seasons with the New York Jets.
