Newly signed backup quarterback Jordan Palmer and veteran punter Brian Moorman were among 10 players released by the Buffalo Bills.

Palmer was among the Bills cuts announced Friday, a day after he threw three interceptions in a preseason-ending 23-0 loss to Detroit. Buffalo had signed the fifth-year player on Tuesday.

Moorman is a 14-year veteran who was back in Buffalo for a second stint.

The Bills also cut cornerbacks Kamaal McIlwain and Sam Miller, linebacker Xavius Boyd, defensive tackle Landon Cohen, tight end Dominique Jones, fullback Evan Rodriguez, receiver Naaman Roosevelt and center Jared Wheeler.

Buffalo also placed three players on reserve/injured: tight end Tony Moeaki and cornerbacks Mario Butler and Bobby Felder.

The Bills must cut seven more players to reach the NFL's 53-player roster by Saturday afternoon.
