ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills receiver Lee Evans was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday, two days after sustaining a sprained ankle in Buffalo's win over Cleveland.
Evans was hurt at the end of Jonathan Stupar's 35-yard reception in the second quarter. Evans was attempting to hold off a defender from catching Stupar from behind when he fell awkwardly while appearing to trip over his teammate's leg.
The 2004 first-round pick had a disappointing season, finishing with 37 catches for 578 yards and four touchdowns. It's his lowest reception total of his career, and seven less than his previous low of 44 catches in 2009.
The Bills also placed tight end Shawn Nelson on the Reserve, Non-Football Injury/Illness list because of migraine headaches.
