Joins Steelers

Reilly was awarded to the Steelers off waivers Tuesday.

Analysis: Reilly was waived by the Lions earlier in the week. After going undrafted out of Nebraska in 2017, the 25-year-old has been bouncing around looking for an opportunity, but has yet to see any regular-season action. He will now look to make an impression in Pittsburgh, but figures to have an uphill climb.

Joining Lions

Reilly has signed a futures contract with the Lions, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Undrafted back in 2017, the former Cornhusker has spent time on practice squads in Buffalo, Detroit and Dallas. Reilly will face an uphill battle to stick with the Lions beyond the preseason in 2019.

Can't crack Buffalo's roster

Reilly has been cut by the Bills, Sal Maiorana of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Reilly had a better chance to make the team once the Bills lost hope in trade acquisition Corey Coleman, but in the end the final receiving spot went to rookie Ray-Ray McCloud. Reilly has turned heads for two summers now, so the Bills would likely love to sneak him onto the practice squad, where he can keep working on the areas where he lacks polish.

Playing through broken rib

Reilly (ribs) is currently on the roster bubble, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

Analysis: Reilly reportedly broke a rib during the Bills' first preseason game but has fought through the injury in hopes of the making the team. While tough as nails, Reilly is unlikely to latch onto the roster for receiving purposes and likely will be of service on special teams if he survives the cut.

Back practicing in full

Reilly (ribs) shed his red non-contact jersey during Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Reilly has been an impressive standout during camp but the ribs injury has somewhat derailed his positive impact. Without any limitations, Reilly will look to keep turning heads in Buffalo with a roster spot potentially on the line.

Back at practice

Reilly (ribs) is practicing Sunday but in a red non-contact jersey.

Analysis: Reilly has had some shiny moments this summer but he's still probably on the outside looking in for a roster spot if the Bills had to make a decision today. Now that he's nearing full health, he'll try to make enough noise to where the team might pick him over a veteran like Rod Streater or Andre Holmes.

Out Friday

Reilly (ribs) won't play in Friday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Reilly injured his ribs against the Panthers last week and hasn't fully recovered yet. He's spent some time working with the first-team and has a chance to make the final roster, but his absence from Friday's camp won't help his case at all. Look for Malachi Dupre and Ray-Ray McCloud to see some extra snaps with Reilly out.

Dealing with rib injury

Reilly suffered a rib injury in Thursday's game against the Panthers, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Analysis: Reilly, who has seen plenty of first-team reps this offseason, only managed to come down with one catch last night before suffering the injury, but it was a deep catch and run that ended up going for 59 yards. The good news for Reilly is that the injury is not being viewed as a serious one, but given that Buffalo is thin at receiver as is, the team will likely proceed with caution.
