Bucs signed WR/PR Roscoe Parrish.

Parrish is expected to take over on punt returns immediately, as Jordan Shipley was released in a related move. Parrish has no fantasy value as the Bucs' fifth receiver.

Raiders waived or released WR Roscoe Parrish, RB Lonyae Miller, LB Kaelin Burnett, K Eddy Carmona, WR Derek Carrier, WR Brandon Carswell, DE Hall Davis, TE Kyle Efaw, DL Dominique Hamilton, OL Kevin Haslem, OL Nick Howell, LB Chad Kilgore, OL Dan Knapp, WR Eddie McGee, C Colin Miller, WR Travionte Session, LB Nathan Stupar, and S Curtis Taylor.

Parrish was just signed early in the week, presumably for punt-return insurance. His release suggests WR Jacoby Ford (foot) has a chance to play in the season opener.

Chargers released WR/KR Roscoe Parrish.

Parrish was never a good bet to stick since Eddie Royal is capable of handling the same role.

The Union-Tribune San Diego expects Roscoe Parrish to join Richard Goodman "at the back end of the team's rotation at wide receiver."

Robert Meachem, Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal are essentially locked in as the top four receivers. Parrish will have to prove he's healthy and effective in training camp to nail down a roster spot as the fifth receiver and punt returner.

Chargers agreed to terms with WR/KR Roscoe Parrish on a one-year deal.

Parrish can still help a team as a punt returner and occasional slot receiver, but he's played just 35-of-64 games over the past four years. At 5'9/178, his body simply can't take the pounding. Parrish will likely have to battle for a roster spot in San Diego; his skill-set is superfluous with Eddie Royal now on board.

WGR 550 Buffalo expects the Bills to "move on" from free agent Roscoe Parrish.

Limited to two games by an ankle injury last season, Parrish last appeared in all 16 games in 2007, and has just 37 catches since 2009. He'll likely be limited to one-year, incentive-laden offers on the open market.

Bills WR Roscoe Parrish (injured reserve, ankle) indicated he hopes to return with the Bills next season.

"I'd love to be back," Parrish said. ''I've had injuries, but most definitely I'd love to be back here with Buffalo and continue to move forward." Parrish, 29, hasn't played a full season since 2007 and isn't likely to receive interest from teams other than as a punt returner. It wouldn't be surprising if the Bills let him walk as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

ESPN.com's James Walker reports Bills WR Roscoe Parrish will miss the rest of the season with a left ankle injury sustained in Week 2.

We don't have the details on the injury just yet, though coach Chan Gailey termed it "more long term than short term, unfortunately." This should close the book on Parrish's Buffalo career, as he's a free agent after the season and the Bills have a promising player in David Nelson to fill the slot role. Nelson is neck-and-neck with Denarius Moore for this week's top waiver addition.

Bills HC Chan Gailey has characterized WR Roscoe Parrish's ankle ailment as a long-term injury.

It sounds like Parrish could eventually head to injured reserve, but for now he'll remain on the roster. The Bills' slot receiver, Parrish has been outplayed by David Nelson early this season and could remain behind Nelson on the depth chart even once Parrish returns. He's not worth holding onto in any format.
