Sean McDermott wouldn’t change a thing. He concedes he wasn’t the best athlete or the best safety to come through William and Mary, but the Bills head coach has no regrets about playing the game he loves — not even the wake of the latest news surrounding chronic traumatic encephalopathy and the NFL. It was reported Thursday that Boston University researchers found …

Sweat begins to collect on Lorenzo Alexander’s shaved head. The only sounds in the spacious room come from his deliberate, deep breaths and the soothing encouragement of his female instructor. The only source of light filters through the frosted double glass doors in the back, revealing a Pilates reformer machine and neatly arranged exercise balls, barres, mats. F…

Each week, I'll take my favorite question (please, no campaigning) from the Bills Mailbag and devote a separate post to it. Want yours answered? Every Wednesday morning, I'll put out the call for questions, so submit it then. This week's question comes from Frank Propis, who asks on Twitter: How much longer does Cordy Glenn last with his injury troubles and relative lac…

In the face of calls for a quarterback change, LeSean McCoy defended the starter he currently has. The Bills running back said Wednesday that he was unaware of the Tyrod Taylor chatter and the mounting frustrations of fans who want to see a different quarterback under center (hello, Nathan Peterman!). But in the aftermath of their 9-3 loss in Carolina, and growing concern…

As Sean McDermott sees it, the Bills don’t need different wide receivers. They just need their current ones to do a better job of doing their job. Asked Wednesday morning if he has enough speed at the position, the Bills head coach gave the expected head-coaching answer. “I do feel we have enough speed in the receiving corps. I do,” McDermott said, three days after…

The Buffalo Bills Wednesday re-signed defensive tackle Deandre Coleman and safety Robert Blanton. They filled the spots on the 53-man roster vacated by Tuesday's cuts of safety Trae Elston and linebacker Jelani Jenkins. The Philadelphia Eagles, who have a habit of acquiring former Bills defensive backs, promptly picked up Elston off waivers. The Bills released the 6-…

Throughout the 2017 season, The Buffalo News will track the performances of players from both Western New York and local colleges who are currently in the NFL. Here are their results in Week Two: • Eagles S Corey Graham: The Buffalo native tied for the team lead with four tackles in Philadelphia's 27-20 loss to Kansas City.

Sean McDermott and Rick Dennison were searching for answers Monday. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach and offensive coordinator were peppered with questions about why the team managed just a measly field goal in a disappointing 9-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. “I feel the frustration out there,” McDermott said a day after watching the offense gain just …

Tyrod Taylor's performance Sunday against the Carolina Panthers led to questions about his job status Monday. Coach Sean McDermott shot those down, indicating that Taylor will remain his starter. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was asked a short time later where his confidence level is after Taylor's performance in a 9-3 loss. "High. I have complete confidence i…

Sean McDermott's his first big test when it comes to clock management came Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. The situation: First and 20 at the Carolina 32-yard line, with two timeouts remaining and 53 seconds left in the game. The play: Quarterback Tyrod Taylor scrambles right and is tackled inbounds by linebacker Luke Kuechly with 48 seconds remaining. The c…

No, the Buffalo Bills aren't making a quarterback change. As much as there is a segment of the team's fan base that has lost faith in Tyrod Taylor, he's not going anywhere right now, coach Sean McDermott said Monday. "Tyrod's our starter," the coach said. Taylor is coming off a lackluster performance in the passing game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. He …
