The Bills already faced an uphill climb as they try to compete in the loaded AFC East, and Monday they had to sign two rookies to help an offense depleted by injuries.

RBs Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch were both injured during a 42-17 preseason loss to Washington on Friday. Jackson is out for the rest of the preseason after hurting his left hand, and Lynch's ankle injury will keep him out indefinitely.

To add some much-needed depth behind rookie RB C.J. Spiller, the Bills signed Andre Anderson, an undrafted rookie out of Tulane. In the Pro Football Weekly 2010 Draft Preview, Nolan Nawrocki wrote Anderson is a "solid, all-around back with enough inside run ability to earn a job as a No. 3 back."

The WR position is thin, as well, with James Hardy and rookie Marcus Easley nursing injuries. The Bills responded by signing Aaron Rhea, an undrafted rookie out of Stephen F. Austin. Rhea had been signed by the Vikings in April but was waived on June 14.  

The Bills also placed LB Ryan Manalac on the waived/injured list.
