Bills rule out returner Roberts in season opener vs Jets

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills receiver and kickoff returner Andre Roberts has been ruled out for the season opener at the New York Jets because of a quadriceps injury.

Roberts was hurt in practice this week and ruled out on Friday. The game Sunday was supposed to be a homecoming for Roberts after he signed with Buffalo in March shortly after getting cut by the Jets.

Roberts is a 10-year veteran and coming off a season when he earned All-Pro honors for leading the NFL in kickoff return yards.

Tight end Tyler Kroft is listed as doubtful after missing the entire offseason with a broken right foot. Kroft was cleared for practicing last weekend.
