The Buffalo Bills are getting ready for a home playoff game against the Miami Dolphins, who they will play for the third time this year.
The Bills are looking quite healthy, and they just made an interesting promotion for a veteran wide receiver.
The #Bills have signed WR Cole Beasley from the practice squad to the active roster and he’ll play in the playoffs.

The Bills have signed Cole Beasley to the active roster from the practice squad, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Beasley was signed by the Bills late in the regular season but did not appear in a game, although he did have seven catches for 79 yards in last year’s playoffs for Buffalo.
Beasley signed a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in September but decided to retire a month later, only to return and join the Bills practice squad later in the season.
With Jamison Crowder still out with an ankle injury — although he was activated from injured reserve — we could see Beasley get some work against Miami.
In the 2020 playoffs, Beasley had 14 catches for 145 yards and was a factor, so who knows if he will emerge and plays a role in this game.
The Bills are heavy favorites against an injured Dolphins team, so they should have no problems defeating Miami and moving on to the next round in what will be another home game for Buffalo.
It has been a busy season for Beasley, but now he gets an opportunity to play in the playoffs once again.
