Make that 21 Bills on injured reserve


So make it 21 and hope the Buffalo Bills stand.

Add another name to the injured reserve list I posted below. The Bills on Saturday placed defensive back Todd Johnson on IR and signed linebacker Ryan Manalac for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Indianapolis Colts in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

"A lot of the things that happened to this team this year injury-wise is unbelievable," new general manager Buddy Nix said Thursday. The Bills added two more players to the IR since. "And that's a major concern, and I think something you've got to address and see if it's something that we're doing or not doing or whether it's just bad luck. But I think we've had it two or three years in a row. That keeps you from getting better."

Johnson didn't start a game, leaving the Bills with 13 starters on IR.
