Date:

Raiders waived or released WR Roscoe Parrish, RB Lonyae Miller, LB Kaelin Burnett, K Eddy Carmona, WR Derek Carrier, WR Brandon Carswell, DE Hall Davis, TE Kyle Efaw, DL Dominique Hamilton, OL Kevin Haslem, OL Nick Howell, LB Chad Kilgore, OL Dan Knapp, WR Eddie McGee, C Colin Miller, WR Travionte Session, LB Nathan Stupar, and S Curtis Taylor.

Parrish was just signed early in the week, presumably for punt-return insurance. His release suggests WR Jacoby Ford (foot) has a chance to play in the season opener.

Raiders agreed to terms with WR/KR Roscoe Parrish.

Parrish was just released by the Chargers on Monday. The 30-year-old is likely just insurance on punt returns in case Jacoby Ford (foot) isn't ready for the season opener. He'll be last on the depth chart at wide receiver.

Chargers released WR/KR Roscoe Parrish.

Parrish was never a good bet to stick since Eddie Royal is capable of handling the same role.

The Union-Tribune San Diego expects Roscoe Parrish to join Richard Goodman "at the back end of the team's rotation at wide receiver."

Robert Meachem, Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal are essentially locked in as the top four receivers. Parrish will have to prove he's healthy and effective in training camp to nail down a roster spot as the fifth receiver and punt returner.

Chargers agreed to terms with WR/KR Roscoe Parrish on a one-year deal.

Parrish can still help a team as a punt returner and occasional slot receiver, but he's played just 35-of-64 games over the past four years. At 5'9/178, his body simply can't take the pounding. Parrish will likely have to battle for a roster spot in San Diego; his skill-set is superfluous with Eddie Royal now on board.

WGR 550 Buffalo expects the Bills to "move on" from free agent Roscoe Parrish.

Limited to two games by an ankle injury last season, Parrish last appeared in all 16 games in 2007, and has just 37 catches since 2009. He'll likely be limited to one-year, incentive-laden offers on the open market.

Bills WR Roscoe Parrish (injured reserve, ankle) indicated he hopes to return with the Bills next season.

"I'd love to be back," Parrish said. ''I've had injuries, but most definitely I'd love to be back here with Buffalo and continue to move forward." Parrish, 29, hasn't played a full season since 2007 and isn't likely to receive interest from teams other than as a punt returner. It wouldn't be surprising if the Bills let him walk as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Bills placed WR/PR Roscoe Parrish (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

We don't have the details on the injury just yet, though coach Chan Gailey termed it "more long term than short term, unfortunately." This should close the book on Parrish's Buffalo career, as he's a free agent after the season and the Bills have a promising player in David Nelson to fill the slot role. Nelson is neck-and-neck with Denarius Moore for this week's top waiver addition.
Tue, Sep 20, 2011 02:54:00 PM

Bills coach Chan Gailey has characterized WR Roscoe Parrish's left ankle sprain as a long-term injury.

It sounds like Parrish could eventually head to injured reserve, but for now he'll remain on the roster. The Bills' slot receiver, Parrish has been outplayed by David Nelson early this season and could remain behind Nelson on the depth chart even once Parrish returns. He's not worth holding onto in any format.
Mon, Sep 19, 2011 04:12:00 PM

Bills coach Chan Gailey acknowledged Sunday that Roscoe Parrish will be out "awhile" after injuring his left ankle in Week 2.

"It's going to be awhile on Roscoe," said Gailey. David Nelson stepped up for 10 receptions and a touchdown in Parrish's absence against the Raiders, and will be worth a look as a WR3 for the foreseeable future. Nelson is good enough that he could Wally Pipp Parrish for the primary slot role in the offense.

Bills PR Roscoe Parrish was carted off the field with an apparent left ankle injury in the second quarter Sunday.

Parrish hopped off the field after a second-quarter pass route, and sat down in an effort to take pressure off the leg. The medical staff examined him on the sideline, and decided to use the cart. Parrish has an extensive history of lower-leg injuries. David Nelson is next up on the depth chart.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 02:08:00 PM

Bills WR Roscoe Parrish finished Week 1 with zero catches on two targets.

Stevie Johnson, David Nelson, and TE Scott Chandler were all more involved. Parrish's snap count isn't available yet, but it's fair to wonder if he's focusing more on special teams with Nelson emerging as Ryan Fitzpatrick's preferred option in the slot. Nelson is a player to track closely in fantasy leagues because of his talent. Parrish shouldn't be owned.
Sun, Sep 11, 2011 07:22:00 PM

The Bills have approached WR Roscoe Parrish about a contract extension, a source tells the Buffalo News.

Parrish, 29, is in the final year of his contract and is set to earn $1.025 million in base salary. Coach Chan Gailey is high on him as a slot receiver and Parrish remains one of the better punt returners in the NFL. Getting a deal done shouldn't be difficult.
Thu, Sep 1, 2011 09:17:00 AM

Bills WR Roscoe Parrish (hamstring), WR Donald Jones (head), and RB Johnny White (head) all returned to Monday's practice.

Parrish had been out since August 10, but he's likely to remain Buffalo's top slot option to open the season. Jones was a projected starter, but Marcus Easley is making a push with a big preseason showing. White is locked in as the Bills' No. 3 running back behind Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.
