Bills DT Dareus has latest setback, placed on non-football injury list day before camp opens

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus won't be ready for the start of training camp after he was placed on the active/non-football injury list.

The move was made Saturday, a day before the Bills hold their first practice in suburban Rochester. The team did not say why he was placed on the list.

It's the latest setback for Dareus, who is already dealing with two off-field legal matters.

In early May, Dareus was arrested in Alabama and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Four weeks later, he crashed his 2012 Jaguar into a tree and was charged with reckless endangerment and ticketed for several traffic violations, including drag-racing.

Guard J.J. 'Unga was also placed on the active/non-football injury list. Starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin was cleared for practice.
