               === Bills send McGee, Pears to injured reserve ===
 Orchard  Park, NY  (Sports  Network)  - The  Buffalo  Bills placed  cornerback
 Terrence  McGee and  offensive tackle  Erik Pears  on injured  reserve amid  a
 flurry of roster moves on Tuesday.
 The  notoriously  brittle McGee has  battled knee problems all throughout this
 season and will end a campaign on IR for the third time in four years. The 32-
 year-old  managed just  eight tackles with two passes defensed while appearing
 in seven games in 2012.
 McGee  has played in  only 22 games over the past three seasons due to various
 ailments, including a torn patellar tendon that limited the 10-year veteran to
 six contests in 2011.
 Pears  started  Buffalo's first seven  games of this season despite undergoing
 groin surgery over the summer, but sat out Sunday's 21-9 loss at Houston after
 aggravating the injury. The seven-year pro was a 16-game starter for the Bills
 a year ago.
 Buffalo also released rookie kicker John Potter, a seventh-round choice by the
 club  back in April's  draft who saw action in six games as strictly a kickoff
 specialist,  while promoting  wide receiver Marcus Easley to the active roster
 from the practice squad.
 A  fourth-round selection by the Bills in 2010, Easley had spent his first two
 seasons on IR due to a knee injury and a heart condition, respectively.
