By most measurements, Kyle Williams wasn't supposed to make it this far. His size was a problem for NFL scouts. LSU listed him at 6-foot-2 and 295 pounds. Colleges have a tendency to exaggerate those numbers, evidenced by the fact Williams lost an inch when he turned pro. Safe bet his weight was inflated, too. Williams started for LSU's 2003 national championship tea…

1. Will there be any changes to the coaching staff? Owner Terry Pegula announced last week that General Manager Doug Whaley and head coach Rex Ryan will return to 2016. Left unsaid, so far, is the status of the team’s assistant coaches. Special teams coordinator Danny Crossman could be a convenient scapegoat for the team, being that he was not a Ryan hire and his unit r…

The symbolism was hard to miss. As Mario Williams sat at his locker inside Ralph Wilson Stadium following the Buffalo Bills' 22-17 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday, 2Pac's "I Ain't Mad At Cha" blasted from a Bose speaker sitting next to him. If it was Williams' final game with the team – and there is every reason to believe that's the case – it served as the …

After appearing to finally overcome the injury bug, the Buffalo Bills have been bitten by it again. Defensive end Alex Carrington is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn quad suffered in Sunday's 30-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the latest injury along a defensive line that has been hit hard in recent weeks. "It doesn't look good," Ryan said. "I know …

Sammy Watkins was 10 yards away from his career-high and had only his second two-touchdown game. It was halftime. The Buffalo Bills led the Kansas City Chiefs, 16-14. Watkins didn't catch another pass the rest of the game. The Bills lost, 30-22. The loss is a wham-bam jolt to the Bills wild-card playoff chances. The entered Sunday's game at Arrowhead Stadium tied with t…

The Buffalo Bills are as healthy as they've been since the start of the 2015 season. Having played on Thursday night in Week 10, they've had plenty of time to rest – and draw up a game plan for the New England Patriots.

Defensive back Leodis McKelvin missed his second straight practice Friday with an illness, but Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan doesn't expect it to keep him out of Monday night's game against the New England Patriots. "I expect him to play," Ryan said following Friday's practice on a windy afternoon in Orchard Park. Running back Karlos Williams was limited because of an ill…

The Buffalo Bills have 11 days to get ready for Week 11. That should be plenty of time for defensive end Mario Williams to get back to full health, coach Rex Ryan said Friday. Williams played just eight snaps in the Bills' 22-17 victory over the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium because of an illness. "I definitely expect Mario to be back," Ryan said. "I mean, it’s an …

A short turnaround means less time for injured players to recover. The Buffalo Bills will experience that Thursday night when they visit the New York Jets. The Bills have ruled out only one player, defensive tackle Kyle Williams with a knee injury, but could also be without another because of the time between Sunday's game against Miami and Thursday night. Offensive tac…

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio have both been ruled out because of knee injuries. Here is a projection on the five other players who might sit out Sunday …

The Buffalo Bills are refreshed following their bye week. We'll start to learn Sunday whether the time off was enough to heal the wounds that came with a 3-4 start to the season. The Miami Dolphins visit Ralph Wilson Stadium at 1 p.m. in a game that has an elimination-type feel to it regarding the AFC playoff race. The Dolphins have an identical 3-4 record and would like …

One day again, a Buffalo Bills player will be able to call his shot and not have it backfire. Bills fans were pumped to hear Sammy Watkins demand more action last week. He was correct in saying his lack of catches so far made him and the Bills look bad. Bills GM Doug Whaley traded two first-round draft picks to get him, but Watkins entered Sunday's game against the Cinci…
