Cadet (ankle) is re-signing with the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Per ESPN.com's Adam Schefter, Cadet is recovering from the dislocated ankle he suffered on Christmas Eve faster than expected, already back to running at full speed. He'll likely still be limited at the offseason program, but it sounds as if he could reach full strength before training camp. Cadet will compete for a depth spot in a backfield that recently added Chris Ivory, potentially spelling LeSean McCoy on some passing downs. Cadet had 22 carries for 93 yards and 13 receptions for 93 yards on 16 targets in six games with the Bills last season.

The Bills placed Cadet (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet dislocated his right ankle in Sunday's loss to the Patriots and will undergo surgery Wednesday to address the matter, so his move to injured reserve was anticipated. Marcus Murphy was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move and checks in as the third-string running back behind LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert.

Cadet suffered a dislocated right ankle in Sunday's 37-16 loss to the Patriots and will undergo a season-ending procedure Wednesday to reset the ankle, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet is expected to make a full recovery in 12 weeks, putting him on track to enter training camp 100 percent healthy. The loss of Cadet, who has produced 186 total yards in six games with Buffalo this season, leaves Mike Tolbert as the top backup to LeSean McCoy.

Cadet suffered a fractured ankle in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Consequently, Cadet won't play in Week 17, with Mike Tolbert slated to back up top running back LeSean McCoy next Sunday against the Dolphins.

Cadet was carted off the field Sunday against the Patriots with a right leg injury.

EDGE Analysis

This one has the look of an injury that will cost the reserve running back some time, as Cadet was fitted with an air cast before being carted off. Mike Tolbert will now serve as LeSean McCoy's top backup for the rest of Sunday's game and quite possibly beyond.

Cadet saw four carries for 24 yards and caught his only target during Sunday's win over Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Teammate Mike Tolbert was a healthy scratch, leaving Cadet as the No. 2 behind bell-cow back LeSean McCoy. The starter was down for a few minutes after one carry, and had that transpired into something worse Cadet would have instantly become the main ball carrier for the Bills, at least for the rest of this contest. However, McCoy remains surprisingly durable given his 29-year-old body and 10,000 yards of NFL tread on his tires, while the season is running out of time for insurance backs like Cadet to have any value.

Cadet, cleared from a concussion last week, played in Sunday's win over the Colts, carrying the ball four times for just two yards while not getting targeted in the passing game.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet was on the field for just four offensive plays, while Mike Tolbert, who had missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, saw 13 offensive plays and turned that into six carries for 32 yards. Cadet has provided some nice depth and versatility to the Buffalo offense since his midseason signing, but it looks like he'll settle into the No. 3 spot in the pecking order now that Tolbert's healthy again.

Cadet (concussion) was a full participant at Friday's practice and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet made it through the concussion protocol quickly, progressing from non-participation Wednesday to limited participation Thursday before closing out the week with a full practice. He caught 12 passes over the past three games, but there may be a bit less backup work available with Mike Tolbert (hamstring) cleared to return.

Cadet has been cleared from the league's concussion protocol, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet missed practice Wednesday after beginning the week in the concussion protocol, but he was able to get in a limited session Thursday, and it appears he will be able to get in at least the same level of participation at the Bills' final practice of the week. Regardless of how much he is able to do Friday, Cadet is expected to play in Week 14. He will work in a reserve role behind LeSean McCoy if he plays, but with fellow running back Mike Tolbert on track to return to action, he could see a decline in usage after averaging 8.3 touches over the last three games.

Cadet (concussion) was limited at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet is trending in the right direction in advance of Sunday's game versus the Colts, but if he is unable able to gain medical clearance for the contest, it does at least look like the Bills' Week 14 backfield will welcome back Mike Tolbert (hamstring).
