ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Butte native Colt Anderson is heading to the NFL’s injured reserved list after breaking his arm Sunday in the Bills’ 30-19 win over the Rams in Los Angeles.
The Bills announced the move today. They also activated offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson.
The injury will require surgery, according to sources.
The game was the second of the season for Anderson, who missed Buffalo’s first three games with a toe injury. Despite not playing in the fourth quarter, Anderson was credited with four tackles after a coaches’ review of the film.
Anderson signed with the Bills as a free agent last offseason. He spent the previous two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
The 2004 Butte High graduate signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in April 2009. He spent a season and a half on the Vikings’ practice squad before signing with the Philadelphia Eagles midway through the 2010 season.
He served as the special teams ace and backup safety for the Eagles until joining the Colts before the 2014 season.
After closing his three-sport career at Butte High — he was also a Legion Baseball standout — Anderson went from walk on to All-American on the University of Montana football team.
