The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback E.J. Gaines for a third straight game Sunday. Gaines, who was listed as questionable, is among the Bills' inactives. That means Shareece Wright will start in his place against Drew Brees and Co. Also inactive for the Bills are: WR Zay Jones (ankle), LT Cordy Glenn (ankle/foot), RB Travaris Cadet, OT Conor McDermot…

Bill Munson has done the math, and the numbers are staggering. Over a career with the Buffalo Bills that spanned five decades, Munson has – by his calculations – seen 889 games in person, driven more than a million miles back and forth from his home in East Amherst to the team’s Orchard Park headquarters and worked with 1,122 players and 227 coaches. “I’m a…

The Buffalo Bills used up their mulligan in Week 9. A loss to the New York Jets increased the importance on every game over the second half of the schedule, starting with Sunday's visit to New Era Field by the New Orleans Saints. With a win, the Bills could improve to 6-3 for the first time since 1999 and reignite the optimism that was diminished with the ugly showing i…

With temperatures in the low 20s, Bills coach Sean McDermott had his players in New Era Field for Friday's practice. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams joked about the fact there were significantly fewer members of the media on hand than he saw for other sessions this week. Although McDermott likes to have his team practice in the stadium on the Friday before a home game…

Bills

The Saints ruled out starting safety Kenny Vaccaro, who has been one of the best cover men in the league this season, for Sunday's game against the Bills. Vaccaro suffered a groin injury last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Chris Banjo finished the game against the Bucs and is expected to start in his place. Left tackle Terron Armstead (chest) was a limited pa…

Opening Statement: Injury report, just an update here. Will not practice today: Cordy Glenn, Zay Jones, and then also I wanted to add to the list, would be Seantrel Henderson. Cordy and Zay will be out for the game, and Seantrel will be listed as questionable. Limited today will be Charles Clay and E.J. [Gaines], and they both will be listed as questionable for the game. W…

The Seattle Seahawks won Thursday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals 22-16, but lost much more. Star Richard Sherman is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles. Left tackle Duane Brown sprained an ankle, safety Kam Chancellor had a stinger and the injury list went on and on from there. After last week's Thursday night loss to the Jets, Bills guard Richie …

It would have been easy for the Buffalo Bills to make an example out of Adolphus Washington. The second-year defensive tackle was arrested in his home state of Ohio back in July on a misdemeanor charge of improperly carrying a concealed firearm. With a new coaching staff that placed a big emphasis on character under Sean McDermott, the Bills could have simply cut Washi…

1. The Bills aren’t giving up hope on rookie receiver Zay Jones playing Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but Thursday was not a step in the right direction. Jones missed his third practice of the week as he deals with an ankle injury suffered in Week 9 against the New York Jets. “He’s still day to day,” coach Sean McDermott said. “He’s made progress.…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills are in the thick of a playoff race. With a 5-3 record, the team holds the sixth and final spot in the AFC entering Week 10. Despite that, the 2018 NFL Draft remains of particular interest to fans, because the Bills currently hold five picks in the first three rounds. A look at the roster shows no shortage of directions the team could go with those sele…

Bills

Offensive linemen Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito and wide receiver Zay Jones are not practicing Thursday as the Bills continue preparations for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Incognito, who did not practice in advance of the Week 9 game against the Jets because of an ankle injury, was not listed on the Wednesday injury report. He said Wednesday that he …

Analysis

The Buffalo Bills have re-established New Era Field as a tough place to play for opponents. A perfect 4-0 record at home is a big reason the Bills are currently in a playoff position in the AFC. “It’s a special place to play,” coach Sean McDermott said. “It’s a place where our guys embrace playing at home. It’s a very comfortable situation for us that way…

Bills

Richie Incognito had a rough go of it last Thursday. The Buffalo Bills' left guard wasn't alone, either. The Bills' offensive line is coming off its worst showing of the season in a Week 9 loss to the New York Jets. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was under constant duress, and was sacked nine times. Running back LeSean McCoy had nowhere to go, producing just 25 yards on the …

Bills

New Orleans Saints left tackle Terron Armstead and Kenny Vaccaro did not practice Wednesday, according to the practice report. Armstead took himself out of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay because of a shoulder injury suffered late in the first half. Vaccaro had a groin injury Sunday and did not finish the game. Guard Larry Warford, who was inactive with a stomach inj…

The Pro Bowl is generally not the time for extensive film study. After a long season, the NFL's annual all-star game is usually a time for players to bond and relax. That, apparently, doesn't apply to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. "We're at the pool," Bills running back LeSean McCoy recalled Wednesday. "Having margaritas, having fun. He's over there stud…
