The drought is dead. The Buffalo Bills finally ended a 17-year postseason dry spell, leading to mass celebrations, six-figure charitable donations and hope that, finally, the team is on the right path under the leadership of General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Before attention turns squarely to planning for 2018, though, here is one final look bac…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Williams has not made any decision regarding his playing future. The Buffalo Bills' veteran defensive tackle accomplished a career goal by playing in his first postseason game Sunday, and the sting of a 10-3 loss overshadowed any talk about his future. Williams' contract will expire in March, and it's still to be determined if he wants to retur…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – LeSean McCoy will play Sunday for the Buffalo Bills against the Jacksonville Jaguars. McCoy was not among the inactives released by the team late Sunday morning after being listed as questionable for the game with an ankle injury suffered last week in Miami. The news wasn't as good for rookie linebacker Matt Milano, who will not play because …

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Buffalo Bills will have one of their top receiving threats available Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Receiver Deonte Thompson, who was questionable for the game with a shoulder injury suffered during Thursday's practice, is active. Thompson has taken the most snaps among receivers over the last three weeks. He had four catches for 91 yards a…

Cornerback E.J. Gaines returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday. Gaines, who left the Week 15 win over Miami with a knee injury, sat out Wednesday’s practice. “He did some things,” coach Sean McDermott said, adding that Gaines was able to participate in part of team drills. “You know, we'll see how he comes back tomorrow.” Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who i…

The Buffalo Bills will have their No. 1 receiver Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. Kelvin Benjamin, who was listed as questionable on the final injury report, is active for the game. Running back Mike Tolbert is a healthy inactive, meaning Travaris Cadet will be the No. 2 running back behind LeSean McCoy. Also inactive for the Bills are quarterback Nat…

It's a de facto elimination game for the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins on Sunday. A 9-7 record will give either team a fighting chance at earning a playoff spot. The Bills could give the Dolphins their eighth loss, while a Buffalo loss would drop them to 7-7. With a looming visit to New England, however, a Buffalo loss would feel like the end of their chances. Her…

Tyrod Taylor is ready to return to the Buffalo Bills' starting lineup. Coach Sean McDermott made that announcement Friday morning ahead of Sunday's must-win game against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field, saying Taylor has done everything in practice the team needed to see. "Tyrod is in a situation where he is good to go and will start Sunday against the Dolphins f…

If the Buffalo Bills have any hope of being a playoff team, they need a win Sunday. The 3-9 Indianapolis Colts have nothing to play for. While it may not feel like it after a stretch that has seen the Bills get blown out four times in five games, the team still has a fighting chance at the postseason, even if it will need some help. If the Bills get to 9-7, the New York…

Tyrod Taylor was back on the practice field Thursday for the Buffalo Bills, participating in individual drills. Taylor did not take part in any of the team sessions, coach Sean McDermott said after practice, and remains "day to day" as he recovers from a left knee injury suffered Sunday against the New England Patriots. "He did some good things," McDermott said. "He …

The scene certainly looked like the end of an era. Tyrod Taylor, a towel draped over his head, was carted off the field Sunday in the fourth quarter of a lopsided loss to the New England Patriots. A short time later, the Buffalo Bills ruled their starting quarterback out for the remainder of the game. Often times when that happens, it portends a long-term injury.…

The Buffalo Bills will be without No. 2 tight end Nick O'Leary on Sunday against the New England Patriots. O'Leary, who was listed as questionable, will miss the game because of a back injury. That means Logan Thomas, who has been inactive the last two weeks, will dress. Also inactive for the Bills are wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee), guard John Miller (ankle), …

The flight home from Los Angeles provided Sean McDermott and Lorenzo Alexander time for a heart-to-heart talk. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran coach wanted to know from his veteran linebacker how he could be best utilized. “Obviously playing on the edge is one of the things that I've done in the past and I've done the most,” Alexander said Thursday. “Being able to rush th…

Add fullback Patrick DiMarco to the list of Bills players not practicing. DiMarco was listed as a full participant Wednesday despite an ankle injury, but did not take part Thursday. DiMarco has been used somewhat sparingly in recent games. He joined Mike Tolbert, Cordy Glenn, John Miller, Kelvin Benjamin and Nick O'Leary among those who were sidelined. https://…

Five Bills players are expected to miss practice Wednesday as the team begins preparations for Sunday's home game against the New England Patriots. Coach Sean McDermott listed WR Kelvin Benjamin, FB Mike Tolbert, TE Nick O'Leary, DE Eddie Yarbrough and G John Miller as day-to-day. Left tackle Cordy Glenn, however, will no longer be listed as day-to-day with a foot/an…
