Running back Dan Herron gets 2nd chance with Buffalo Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Running back Dan Herron is getting another shot with the Buffalo Bills.

The free agent signed with the Bills on Thursday after being cut by the team in November. Herron has four seasons of NFL experience, including splitting last year between Buffalo and Indianapolis.

He had just 11 carries for 37 yards and three catches for 20 yards in four games with the Bills. Overall, he has 468 yards rushing and a touchdown, and 277 yards receiving in 35 career games, including three starts.

The signing was announced a day after starter LeSean McCoy was the only one of Buffalo's five running backs present for a voluntary practice session.

To make room, the Bills released cornerback Julian Whigham, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Syracuse.
