Former Husker Incognito placed on Buffalo's reserve/retired list

The Buffalo Bills have placed Richie Incognito on their reserve/retired list in a move confirming the offensive guard's intention to abruptly quit football after eleven seasons. 

The Bills announced the move today, two days after Incognito, a former Husker, indicated he was "done" in a series of interviews and messages posted on his Twitter account.  Incognito cited health concerns involving his liver and kidneys as the reasons to retire.  He also expressed second thoughts over accepting a pay cut when restructuring the final year of his contract.  Incognito started all 36 games at left guard over three seasons in Buffalo, after the Bills provided Incognito a second chance at playing following his role in the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal in 2013.
