ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Carolina Panthers have addressed their injury-depleted offensive line by acquiring veteran Marshall Newhouse in a trade with the Buffalo Bills.

Buffalo acquired a conditional draft pick from Carolina in the trade on Tuesday. The Bills then filled Newhouse's spot by signing offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles to a one-year contract.

Sirles was cut by the Panthers three weeks ago. He has three seasons of NFL experience, including starting 28 games with Minnesota in 2016 and `17.

Carolina was missing three offensive line starters in a 31-21 win over Cincinnati on Sunday. Tackles Matt Kalil and Daryl Williams are on injured reserve, while guard Trai Turner did not play because of a concussion.

Newhouse has experience playing tackle and guard in 70 starts over nine seasons. He joined the Bills by signing a one-year contract in March, and has been credited with playing just 14 snaps in Buffalo's first three games.
