Former Nebraska receiver Brandon Reilly and cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste were moved to active rosters Tuesday with four weeks left in the NFL regular season.
Reilly was signed off the Buffalo practice squad after the Bills placed receiver Jordan Matthews on injured reserve. The Bills (6-6) play host to Indianapolis on Sunday.
Buffalo had cut the undrafted free agent after a strong training camp — that included 11 receptions for 139 yards and a touchdown in preseason games — then immediately signed the Lincoln Southwest graduate to its practice squad.
Jean-Baptiste is trying to re-energize his NFL career with Baltimore (7-5), which plays Sunday night at Pittsburgh.
Jean-Baptiste was a second-round draft pick by New Orleans in 2014 but didn't make it to a second season with the Saints. Before being added to the Ravens' practice squad this fall, the cornerback has been given recent looks by Detroit, Seattle, Kansas City and Jacksonville.
Baltimore opened a spot on its 53-man roster after cornerback Jimmy Smith suffered a season-ending Achilles' injury.
