The Bills cut Austin from their practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Austin was dismissed from the Bills' practice squad Thursday, after the team was given a practice squad exemption for the 32-year-old on Wednesday. Across nine NFL seasons, Austin recorded 244 receptions, 2,239 yards and 16 touchdowns, while he also added 199 rushes for 1,361 yards and 10 more scores in that span. However, the 176-pounder has proven to be an effective return specialist throughout his career, as he's amassed 1,515 total punt-return yards. Austin could still provide the same boost as a returner for another team if given the opportunity.

Everett (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday.
Analysis: Everett was listed as a full participant Wednesday, so it's possible the tight end tweaked his hamstring during Thursday's session. Either way, his status is now worth monitoring ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns. If Everett ends up out or limited this weekend, Donald Parham (hamstring) is a candidate to help fill in, having practiced fully so far this week after missing the Chargers' first four games.

Reynolds (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Reynolds is one of four receivers on Detroit's Week 5 injury report, but he at least appears to be in a better spot on the health front than Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) and Quintez Cephus (foot), who were both non-participants in practice for the second day in a row. Unless St. Brown takes a step forward in his practice activity Friday to improve his chances of putting an end to a one-game absence Sunday at New England, Reynolds could be one of the top candidates to absorb the No. 1 wideout's vacated target volume. Reynolds will first have to move past his own ankle concern, but while St. Brown was out for last week's 48-45 shootout loss to the Seahawks, Reynolds drew eight targets and turned those looks into seven receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown.

Austin was released from the Bills' practice squad Wednesday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
Analysis: Austin signed with Buffalo's practice squad after failing to carve out a roster spot in the team's crowded wide receiver corps this preseason. The 32-year-old caught 24 of his 37 targets for 213 yards and a touchdown over 13 games with Jacksonville last season, marking his most significant usage in the passing game since 2016 with the Rams. Austin totaled 1,515 punt-return yards during his first nine seasons in the NFL, and his best value may come in a similar specialist role moving forward.

Reynolds (ankle) isn't practicing Wednesday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Reynolds played through an ankle injury in Sunday's 48-45 loss to Seattle and caught seven of eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown. He could see that type of volume again this Sunday in New England if he's able to play through his ankle injury while Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) and/or DJ Chark (ankle) can't manage to do the same.
