The Buffalo Bills have added defensive end IK Enemkpali to their active roster, the team announced Monday.

Enemkpali, 24, initially joined the Bills after being released from the Jets following a preseason incident during which he punched quarterback Geno Smith in the face, breaking his jaw.

Enemkpali served a four-game suspension without pay at the start of the season and was on a roster exemption for the team’s Week 5 game against the Titans.

Bills coach Rex Ryan said that Enemkpali will serve as a designated pass-rusher, adding he will “probably contribute on special teams.”

Enemkpali takes the roster spot of running back Cierre Wood, who sustained a knee injury during the second quarter of the team's game against Tennessee. The Bills placed Wood on injured reserve with a torn ACL on Monday, leaving Boobie Dixon and Boom Herron as the only healthy Bills running backs on the roster.

The Bills will host the Bengals on Sunday.
