Roosevelt Released by Bill, Destined for the Practice Squad?

According to Rodney McKissic The Buffalo Bills have released UB Alimni Naaman Roosevelt. Roosevelt himself seemed to indicate the same thing when he tweeted that he was going to have to find a new home.
Thanks buffalo for all the support...but i think I'm a have to find a new home!! -- Naaman Roosevelt
Later Roosevelt said he was remaining in Buffalo, these to things together spell practice squad.

Att Yds Yds/Att Long TD
Rushing 1 -5 -5 -5 0
Receiving 8 67 8.4 15 0
Ret FC Yds/Ret Long TD
Punt Returns 5 5 7.8 23 0

The Bills Practice squad is not a terrible place to be right now, their receiving woes last season and the odds that someone gets hurt means Roosevelt has a pretty decent shot of being called up. Still given that he was 3rd in receptions and first in punt returning for Buffalo, many were saying he would end up on the 53 man roster.

This is par for the course for the Bills who have not made a sound decision since the age of Bill Polian.
