Bills placed S Jonathan Meeks on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

LB Larry Dean will take his roster spot. A second-year fifth rounder, Meeks suffered the injury in training camp. He was bandied about as a potential starter in OTAs, but that talk quickly faded once camp began. Meeks appeared in just eight games as a rookie. He'll be back to compete for one of the Bills' final roster spots in 2015.

Bills SS Jonathan Meeks is dealing with a neck injury.

Meeks missed practice all week and isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game. He's behind Duke Williams and Da'Norris Searcy for the Bills' strong safety job. Meeks has potential for a sub-package role when healthy.

Bills second-year SS Jonathan Meeks "could push for the starting spot" opposite Aaron Williams.

Meeks was limited to special teams as a rookie, and appeared in just eight games due to injury. He could be a sleeper for the Bills' strong safety job over Duke Williams and Da'Norris Searcy. It's possible Searcy will end up the nominal starter and play in base sets, with one of Meeks or Williams replacing him in sub-packages.

Bills GM Doug Whaley mentioned S Jonathan Meeks as a candidate to start opposite Aaron Williams.

A 2013 fifth-round pick, Meeks appeared in just eight games as a rookie and spent most of the season on injured reserve. The Bills are considering Meeks, Duke Williams, and Corey Graham as in-house options to replace Jairus Byrd.

Bills activated S Jonathan Meeks (ankle) from injured reserve/designated to return.

A fifth-round rookie, Meeks was contributing special teams before going down in early October. He's unlikely to see much, if any, time on defense over the season's final three weeks.

Bills placed S Jonathan Meeks on injured reserve/designated to return with an ankle injury.

The fifth-round rookie has been limited to special teams this season. He'll be eligible to resume practicing in Week 13, and playing in Week 15.

Bills agreed to terms with No. 143 overall pick S Jonathan Meeks on a four-year contract.

Meeks is a 6-foot-1, 209-pound thumper, but the presence of fellow rookie S Duke Williams means he's unlikely to see much time on defense in 2013. Meeks has the skills to eventually crack the secondary, but should focus on special teams this season.

Bills selected Clemson SS Jonathan Meeks with the No. 143 overall pick.

A thumping safety at 6-foot 3/8, 209, Meeks ran a 4.55 at his Pro Day with a 33 1/2-inch vertical and 23 reps on the bench. He was not invited to the Combine. Meeks made 24 starts in his college career, recording seven interceptions. Strong safety is a need position in Buffalo -- Da'Norris Searcy is penciled in as the starter -- but Meeks figures to focus on special teams initially.
