Bills place DT Dareus on non-football injury list

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus won't be ready for the start of training camp after he was placed on the active/non-football injury list.

The move was made Saturday, a day before the Bills hold their first practice in suburban Rochester. The team did not say why he was placed on the list.

It's the latest setback for Dareus, who is already dealing with two off-field legal matters.

In early May, Dareus was arrested in Alabama and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Four weeks later, he crashed his 2012 Jaguar into a tree and was charged with reckless endangerment and ticketed for several traffic violations, including drag-racing.

Guard J.J. 'Unga was also placed on the active/non-football injury list. Starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin was cleared for practice.

Also on Saturday...

The Buffalo Bills have signed receiver Tori Gurley and defensive back Kamaal McIlwan.

The free agent signings were announced Saturday, a day before the Bills open training camp in suburban Rochester.

The 6-foot-4 Gurley had one catch in three games with the Cleveland Browns last season. He has spent time with several teams since breaking into the NFL in 2011 as an undrafted free agent with Green Bay.

McIlwan has yet to play in an NFL game since breaking into the league in 2011. He was cut by Kansas City before the start of last season.

Both players participated on a tryout basis in Buffalo's mandatory minicamp last month.

They fill the roster spots left open after the Bills released receiver Cordell Roberson and defensive back Darius Robinson on Friday.
