One final preseason game is all that’s left now. One last chance for players on the periphery of the roster to state their case. One last dress rehearsal for the Bills before these games really matter. Thursday night’s finale against the Detroit Lions won’t provide much by way of star power, but it’ll give the coaching staff one final glimpse at backups before th…

Former Buffalo Bills fullback Carlton "Cookie" Gilchrist has been selected the 31st member of the team's Wall of Fame. Gilchrist, who died in 2011 at age 75, will be honored during a halftime ceremony at the Bills' Oct. 29 game against the Oakland Raiders at New Era Field. Although the 6-foot-3, 251-pound Gilchrist only spent three seasons with the Bills, 1962-1964, …

Keith Wenning knows what the Buffalo Bills want from him. Do plenty of cramming in order to be ready to play quarterback in Thursday night's preseason-finale against the Detroit Lions at New Era Field. In all likelihood, that will be the one and only time Wenning gets to wear a Bills uniform in a game. The Bills only signed him Monday, because they are in the midst o…

Reggie Ragland was a bad fit in the Buffalo Bills' defense. That's undeniable. At 6-foot-2 and 252 pounds, he was built to be an inside linebacker who could fill gaps and make plays near the line of scrimmage in a 3-4 base defense -- the one the Bills were playing when they drafted him. In the 4-3 base that Sean McDermott employs, Ragland was a bit out of his elem…

The battle to determine the Buffalo Bills' starter at right guard is going right down to the very end of the preseason. Incumbent John Miller and newcomer Vlad Ducasse will carry on the fight through Thursday night's preseason-finale against the Detroit Lions at New Era Field. Final preseason games are usually left to mainly fringe players to simply get the team through…

It hasn't been easy for Jerry Hughes to be so far from the devastation Hurricane Harvey is causing in his home state of Texas. The Buffalo Bills' defensive end has family and friends there, and although he knows they're all safe, he's concerned for many others who aren't and all that will be dealing with the aftermath. That was why Hughes, whose hometown of Sugar La…

The Buffalo Bills continue to have a quarterback health quandary with starter Tyrod Taylor and third-stringer T.J. Yates still in concussion protocol. How long will Taylor and Yates, each of whom suffered a concussion in last Saturday night's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, be kept out of practice and games? The Bills have no clue. "Very little informati…

Safety Bacarri Rambo was among six players released by the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, the first set of moves in advance of reducing their roster to 53 by Saturday's NFL deadline. Rambo had two stints with the Bills. He joined them as a free agent in 2014 and remained with them through 2015, during which he helped them beat the New York Jets by forcing two fumbles (one of wh…

With two of the three quarterbacks they already had in concussion protocol, the Buffalo Bills Monday added a fourth, Keith Wenning. That gives the Bills two healthy quarterbacks, counting rookie backup Nathan Peterman, for Thursday night's preseason-finale against the Detroit Lions. Wenning is likely to take most, if not all, of the snaps in the game, but probably won't…

BALTIMORE – The Buffalo Bills made a move to lock up one of their veteran leaders Saturday. The team announced before their preseason game here against the Ravens that center Eric Wood agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2019 season. Wood was entering the final year of his contract. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Saturday that the contract includ…

New system. New receiving corps. Same Tyrod Taylor. Well, sort of. One of the Bills quarterback’s best attributes is his dedication, according to head coach Sean McDermott. But now, Taylor is playing “more free” within their new offense. And that modification is the key to not only his success but the team’s as well. “For our players, I want them to know that …
