Byrd becomes 18th Bill to go on I.R.

  • Posted on December 23, 2009 at 2:11 pm

One of the few bright spots on a dismal 2009 Buffalo Bills team, rookie safety Jairus Byrd has been placed on Injured Reserve, reports BuffaloBills.com. His stellar rookie campaign is now at an end. Veteran linebacker and special teams ace Josh Stamer was signed to to fill Byrd’s spot on the active roster.

A second-round pick out of Oregon this past April, Byrd made a position switch from corner to safety despite not participating in mini-camps and dealing with a nagging groin injury. To say he exceeded all expectations is an understatement; Byrd hits IR as the NFL’s current interceptions leader, with nine on the season.

Byrd had been seeing limited playing time in recent weeks, as the groin injury he suffered prior to training camp never really went away. George Wilson and Donte Whitner will remain Buffalo’s starting safeties for the remainder of the season - if they, themselves, can stay healthy, that is.

The Niagara men’s basketball team (8-4) wanted one thing for Christmas; a second half. After falling behind by 16 points at the intermission, things looked bleak for the Purple Eagles. But a 52-point second half gave NU a 77-71 victory over Little 3 Rival St. Bonaventure (6-5) in front of a sold out ‘Taps’ Gallagher Center crowd on Tuesday.

“Even our fans, who are the greatest fans in the world, were probably thinking that this just wasn’t our night,” Niagara head coach Joe Mihalich said. “But in the locker room at halftime, there were 20 people who knew we could win this game.”

The University at Buffalo men’s basketball team earned their third straight win by defeating the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 71-65. Senior Rodney Pierce scored a career-high 29 points in 37 minutes of action to lead the Bulls to victory in the first ever meeting between the teams.

The Bulls (6-3, 0-0 MAC) opened the contest at the line, which would be a key factor in their victory. Buffalo shot an impressive 11-for-12 from the line with Pierce going 6-for-6.

Trailing by two at 16:35, senior John Boyer caused a Green Bay turnover, leading to a Pierce layup off a pass by Calvin Betts to tie the contest at 8-8.
