Bills placed ILB Reggie Torbor (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Torbor's shoulder ended up being more serious than first indicated. He has a history of shoulder issues, including a torn labrum that landed him on I.R. last season. The 30-year-old will be a free agent in 2012. He'll likely have to settle for a reserve role next year. Thu, Aug 25, 2011 04:24:00 PM

The Buffalo News suggests that Kirk Morrison's signing could be related to Reggie Torbor's undisclosed injury.

Torbor hasn't practiced the last two days and paper says he "might be out of the lineup for a while." Morrison has starting experience on the inside and provides nice insurance.

Coach Chan Gailey suggested the Bills won't seek a replacement for ILB Paul Posluszny in free agency.

"Reggie Torbor and Andra Davis will be inside for us to start with," said Gailey. "They are both experienced guys who have done it." We're not sure we buy it. The Bills have already spoken with several free agent linebackers.

The Bills are expected to move Reggie Torbor back to inside linebacker this season.

Torbor started six games at outside linebacker last season, adding next to nothing as a pass rusher (four QB hurries, no sacks). The Bills' top three outside 'backers this year are expected to be Shawne Merriman, Chris Kelsay, and Arthur Moats. The inside linebackers will be Torbor, Andra Davis, rookies Kelvin Sheppard and Chris White, and Paul Posluszny if he re-signs.

Bills placed OLB Reggie Torbor (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The 29-year-old had been an adequate fill-in over 10 games this season, holding his own in coverage while falling just below average in run defense. He's signed cheaply through 2011. Rookie Antonio Coleman is expected to replace him in the starting lineup. It doesn't look like Aaron Maybin will work his way out of the doghouse.

Bills OLB Reggie Torbor (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 13.

Rookie Antonio Coleman is likely to start in Torbor's place, but it's expected to be a group effort to cover for him. One option is to use Paul Posluszny and Chris Kelsay some in the outside, with Akin Ayodele filling in in the middle.

Bills OLB Reggie Torbor (chest) has resumed practicing in full.

He'll be good to go at Green Bay, though Torbor probably won't end up playing much due to the Packers' consistent three- and four-wide sets. Torbor is only a member of Buffalo's base defense. Aaron Maybin will play more snaps.
Wed, Sep 15, 2010 05:30:00 PM

Bills coach Chan Gailey has ruled out OLB Reggie Torbor (chest) for Week 1.

Torbor was slated to play on all rushing downs, so this can't hurt Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Chris Ellis will likely start opposite Chris Kelsay.

Bills OLB Reggie Torbor (chest) practiced in limited fashion Monday.

"He didn’t make it through the whole thing, but he got out there and did some stuff," said coach Chan Gailey. "... We’ll see how he feels later in the week." Torbor will start at outside linebacker Sunday if he's deemed physically ready.
Tue, Sep 7, 2010 08:50:00 AM

Bills OLB Reggie Torbor is expected to miss three weeks with an undisclosed injury.

Torbor sustained the injury in Thursday's preseason game, but the Bills aren't disclosing details just yet. The veteran had been running ahead of Aaron Maybin as the starting weak outside linebacker. Chris Ellis will fill in on early downs with Maybin playing a nickel role.

Bills LB Reggie Torbor remains the starter at weak outside linebacker over Aaron Maybin.

Torbor played the last two seasons under current Bills defensive coordinator George Edwards (who was his inside linebackers coach), and all indications are that Torbor will open the season opposite Chris Kelsay. Torbor will rotate out on passing downs, and he's not remotely an option in IDP leagues.
Wed, Aug 11, 2010 09:02:00 AM

Bills OLB Reggie Torbor is currently running as a starter ahead of Aaron Maybin at training camp.

The other OLB starter is Chris Kelsay. The Bills are kidding themselves if they think they'll have any sort of pass rush if Torbor wins the weak-side gig. He has 6.5 career sacks in six seasons. Maybin needs to crack the lineup soon.
Tue, Aug 3, 2010 04:45:00 PM

Newly acquired Bills LB Reggie Torbor was working as an outside linebacker in his first practice with the team Tuesday.

Torbor was an inside linebacker for the Dolphins for the past two years and has never played outside in a 3-4. Although he's not a great pass rusher, Torbor should be able to be an effective backup at both linebacking positions.
Wed, Jun 9, 2010 08:45:00 AM

Bills agreed to terms with LB Reggie Torbor on a two-year contract.

Torbor was released by the Dolphins just last week. His addition was likely spearheaded by defensive coordinator George Edwards, who worked with Torbor as the linebackers coach in Miami for the past five seasons. He'll provide depth on the inside while contributing on special teams.

Dolphins released LB Reggie Torbor.

Torbor didn't have much of a chance after the Dolphins signed Karlos Dansby and acquired Tim Dobbins via draft weekend trade. At age 29, Torbor can still help a team by providing linebacker depth and special teams help. The Dolphins just weren't going to pay him $3.05 million to do that.
