Bills sign offensive guard Groy off Buccaneers practice squad and free-agent receiver Thigpen


ORCHARD PARK, New York — The Buffalo Bills have signed offensive guard and receiver .

Groy fills an immediate need after being signed off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad Wednesday. Starting right guard is out indefinitely with a high left ankle sprain sustained in a 20-13 loss at New England on Monday.

Groy had three starts in four games as a rookie last year in Chicago.

Thigpen, who doubles as a kickoff returner, was a free agent. He rejoins Buffalo after being cut by the team last month.

To make room on their roster, the Bills released running back and receiver Denarius Moore.

Buffalo travels to play at Kansas City on Sunday in a key AFC matchup between two teams with 5-5 records.
