Malachi Dupre signed to Buffalo Bills practice squad
Former LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre was signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad Tuesday, Newyorkupstate.com reported.
Dupre, a seventh-round pick by Green Bay in the 2017 draft, was cut by the Packers one week before the season-opening weekend. He missed much of training camp after being hospitalized with a concussion in the first preseason game. He was knocked out on a hit by Philadelphia safety Tre Sullivan after catching a pass, and taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
Dupre was LSU's leading receiver the past two seasons. He caught 41 passes for 593 yards and three TDs last season. The Bills released Daikiel Shorts from the practice squad to make room for Dupre.
The signing gives the Bills three former LSU players. They picked cornerback Tre'Davious White in the first round of the 2017 draft and defensive tackle Kyle Williams has been with the Bills since 2006.
