ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Veteran fullback Patrick DiMarco’s season with the Bills is over after the team placed him on injured reserve.

Buffalo also released linebackers Vosean Joseph and Corey Thompson, and activated tight end Tommy Sweeney from the physically unable to perform list. The moves were made a day before NFL teams are required to cut their rosters to 53 players.

 The moves leave Buffalo with a 78-player roster. DiMarco missed much of the past two weeks with a neck injury. Joseph was Buffalo’s fifth-round pick in the 2019 draft but missed his rookie season after having shoulder surgery.
