Browns' Marquez Stevenson: Inks reserve/future contract
The Browns signed Stevenson to a reserve/future contract Monday.
Stevenson opened the regular season on Buffalo's IR with a foot injury and was activated Dec. 6, but he was quickly waived the following day. The second-year wideout then spent a short stint on the Bills' practice squad before joining up with Cleveland's in mid-December. Stevenson finished the 2022 campaign without appearing in a game, and he'll now compete for an active-roster spot with the Browns this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Marquez Stevenson: Let go from practice squad
Stevenson was cut from the practice squad Tuesday, the Bills' official site reports.
The sixth-rounder from last season has played only five games with the Bills while dealing with some injuries and difficulty getting up to speed with the pro game. For now, the playoff-bound Bills are looking more for experience than speed, so they signed Cole Beasley on Tuesday while Stevenson was on the way out.... See More ... See Less
Marquez Stevenson: Joins Cleveland's practice squad
The Browns signed Stevenson to their practice squad Wednesday.
Stevenson was cut from the Bills' practice squad Tuesday but quickly found a new home in Cleveland. The 2021 sixth-round pick made five appearances for Buffalo as a rookie, operating primarily as a return man, but he's yet to see the field this season. However, with Amari Cooper (hip) and David Bell (thumb) dealing with injuries, it's possible Stevenson could get elevated during the first week with his new squad.... See More ... See Less
Marquez Stevenson: Added to Bills' practice squad
Stevenson was signed to the Bills' practice squad Friday.
Stevenson will return to Buffalo after he was waived by the team Wednesday and went unclaimed on the open market. The 24-year-old was just activated from injured reserve Tuesday following a foot injury, and he will provide the Bills with another depth option at wide receiver. Based on his impressive speed, it's possible that he could work his way into the return game at some point as well.... See More ... See Less
Marquez Stevenson: Off to waivers
The Bills waived Stevenson on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
As expected, the Bills sent Stevenson to waivers with the expectation that they'll be able to sign him to their practice squad as long as he isn't snatched up by another team. The 24-year-old suffered a foot injury early in training camp and has been unavailable up until his activation from injured reserve Tuesday. If Stevenson is indeed added to Buffalo's practice squad, pending waivers, then he'd serve as additional wide receiver depth for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Marquez Stevenson: Activated Tuesday
Stevenson (foot) was activated from injured reserve by the Bills on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The next order of business for the Bills is waiving Stevenson with the expectation that they'll sign him to the practice squad if he's able to clear waivers. The second-year-pro has yet to play this season due to the injury, but he did play five games last season contributing as a return man.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Designated to return from IR
Stevenson (foot) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson will return to practice Wednesday and officially start the 21-day window for the Bills to either activate him or leave him on IR for the rest of the 2022 campaign. The wide receiver has been unavailable since the start of the season and doesn't have a clear path to usage in the offense once healthy. However, Stevenson can fly and might be utilized in the return game.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Heads to IR
The Bills placed Stevenson (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday.
Buffalo kept seven receivers ahead of roster cuts Tuesday, so the writing was on the wall for Stevenson to head to IR since he doesn't appear close to returning from surgery, which he underwent two weeks ago. Had Stevenson stayed healthy through the preseason and secured a spot on the Week 1 roster, he likely would have seen most of his playing time on special teams rather than on offense.... See More ...

Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Undergoes foot surgery
Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Sunday that Stevenson underwent foot surgery last week and didn't provide a timetable for his return, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
Stevenson left practice early Tuesday with the injury and has since undergone a procedure that may sideline him to start the regular season. The 2021 sixth-round draft pick appeared in five games last year and handled punt return duties, but due to the injury, he may have a tough time making the initial 53-man roster this season....

Bills' Marquez Stevenson: No quick return
Stevenson (foot) will miss "weeks," head coach Sean McDermott said Thursday, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Buffalo News reports.
Stevenson left practice early Tuesday with the injury, and it was reported he would need further evaluation. The injury is a blow to the speedy second-year-pro, as any missed time on the field will certainly impact his chances to earn a roster spot. A sixth-round selection in the 2021 Draft, Stevenson appeared in five games last year and handled punt return duties.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Leaves practice early
Stevenson (foot) left practice early Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson will undergo further evaluation, as the severity of the injury is not yet known. Selected in the sixth round of the 2021 Draft, Stevenson appeared in five games last season, serving as a return man for the Bills.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Healthy scratch for MNF
Stevenson (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's matchup with the Patriots.
Stevenson made his NFL debut in Week 12 against the Saints after spending the first 11 weeks of the regular season on injured reserve. The rookie sixth-round pick played just one offensive snap and eight special-teams snaps, so his absence Monday won't impact the Bills' offensive gameplan.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Comes off IR
Stevenson has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Thursday night's game against the Saints, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. He's missed the entire season to date due to a head injury suffered during the preseason.
Now that he's been activated, we'll see if the rookie sixth-rounder suits up for what's become a huge game for the reeling Bills at New Orleans. If Stevenson does play, Buffalo will be looking for his top-end speed to boost the special teams, though we wouldn't be surprised if the Bills tossed out a gadget play involving Stevenson, either....

Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Gearing up for return
Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that Stevenson (head) has been designated for return from injured reserve Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The transaction opens up a 21-day window for the Bills to evaluate Stevenson in practice, and McDermott didn't rule out the possibility of the sixth-round rookie out of Houston playing in Thursday's game against the Saints, per Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic. Stevenson was a preseason star, but he got banged up along the way and was ultimately the team placed on injured reserve ahead of Week 1. There's not much room in the receiving corps on this high-powered offense unless injuries strike, but the special-teams group could perhaps use a boost, and Stevenson can fly. If he gets activated in the next few weeks, Stevenson's ability to contribute in the return game is probably his best path to seeing the field on game days.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Not practicing Wednesday
Stevenson (head) didn't practice Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson is eligible to rejoin the team at any point after spending the mandatory three weeks on IR. However, he may need some more time to recover from the head injury he sustained during the preseason. When healthy, the rookie sixth-round pick will look to compete for a reserve spot as a depth receiver and kick returner.... See More ... See Less
