According to Joe Buscaglia, the Bills are activating running back Mike Gillislee from their practice squad. Gillislee played college football for the University of Florida. He was considered one of the top running back prospects, and was chosen by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
As a senior in 2012, Gillislee finished the regular season with 1104 yards on 235 carries and 10 touchdowns. He became the first Florida Gator to eclipse the 1,000 yard mark since 2004.
The Buffalo Bills cut center Gabe Ikard to make room for the former Gator back.
