Bills add WR Kenny Stills to active roster for showdown with Chiefs

Josh Allen will have a new weapon when he takes on the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Buffalo Bills announced Saturday that they are elevating wide receiver Kenny Stills from their practice squad for the AFC championship game on Sunday. Cornerback Dan Jackson will be the team’s other practice squad elevation.

Stills is now set to get his first game action in a Bills uniform after signing with the team’s practice squad earlier this month. Before that, Stills was released by the Houston Texans after falling out of favor on the team’s offense, posting only 40 receiving yards in his last five games combined with the team.

Stills is in his eighth NFL season, having previously played for the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints. He landed with the Texans as part of the Laremy Tunsil trade.

As far as late-season free agents and practice squad players go, the Bills are getting quite a potential value with Stills. Before the 2020 season, the 28-year-old had averaged 42.7 receptions, 671.3 receiving yards and 5.1 touchdowns per season in his career with three different teams. Those numbers would all rank third on the Bills receiving corps this year.

Typically used as a big-play burner, it’s not hard to see how Stills could fit in an offense led by Allen, owner of one of the strongest arms in the NFL. Receiver is also a potential need for the Bills right now, as No. 2 receiver Cole Beasley (knee) and No. 3 receiver Gabriel Davis (ankle) have been recently dealing with injuries.
