ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills tight end Joe Klopfenstein was placed on the injured reserve list Thursday.

Klopfenstein's exact injury is unknown. An injury settlement with the four-year veteran remains a possibility, which would allow him to play elsewhere in 2010 should he heal in time.

The Bills signed Klopfenstein two different times during the 2009 season, and he played in only one game, the season finale, making one catch for 11 yards.

Prior to 2009, Klopfenstein spent three seasons with St. Louis, which selected him in the second round of the 2006 draft. In 49 career games, Klopfenstein has 34 receptions for 397 yards and two touchdowns.
