Bowen Hurt In Camp: Bills Sign FA LB Spragan

Andrew FarrellCorrespondent IAugust 2, 2008

Buffalo Bills 5th Round Draft Pick Alvin Bowen, out of Iowa State, was hurt the other day in practice while trying to cover reserve FB Jonathan Evans.  Evans made a cut, and Bowen tripped, twisted his knee, and went down to the field in what looked like a lot of pain.

The Buffalo Brass in COO, Russ Brandon wasted no time in filling the open whole by signing 7 year NFL Veteran Donnie Spragan.

The 6'3 245 OLB has spent the past 7 seasons in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, and the Miami Dolphins.  His best year came as a starter, in 2004 with the Denver Broncos where he racked up 67 tackles, a sack, and 5 pass break ups.

 

Spragan will not compete for a starting role, but his added veteran leadership will be helpful to these young Buffalo Bills
