[BN] Blitz Bills newsletter: What to know for Wednesday, Sept. 20

You may have some new Buffalo Bills coming your way Wednesday.

The team released linebacker Jelani Jenkins and safety Trae Elston on Tuesday, giving them two openings on the 53-man roster.

Elston's release leaves Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde and Colt Anderson as the only safeties on the roster, so that could be a position they'll fill.

Cutting Jenkins is a curious move since the team just signed him last week, but the Bills still have six linebackers on the roster.

Hey, Doug Whaley has a new job: Whaley, the former Bills GM, took a job that Vic Carucci described as a "senior business adviser for a company that develops software and sensor technology used, in part, for sports injury prevention."

Whaley had three more years left on his contract with the Bills when he was fired, so he'll still be cashing Pegula paychecks for a while unless he takes another job in the NFL.

Being cut by Broncos motivates Yarbrough: First-year Bill Eddie Yarbrough seems like a thoughtful player from the stories written about him. He told Vic Carucci that he keeps a journal. And here's what he wrote after the Broncos cut him last year: "I'm not done yet!"

Yarbrough can make the Broncos pay for not keeping him Sunday when they visit New Era Field.

Sunday's weather looks amazing: How's this for a headline: "Warmest Bills home game since 2002 forecast for Sunday."

Make sure to mix in some water at those tailgates.

McCoy got little help: LeSean McCoy was credited with gaining 16 yards after contact Sunday ... but he only rushed for 9 total yards. That indicates he was hit behind the line far too often. The only Bills who got positive run-blocking grades from Pro Football Focus were left tackle Dion Dawkins and fullback Patrick DiMarco.

Good looks from Chris Long: Long, the Eagles' defensive lineman, announced that he'll donate his first six game checks of the year to go toward prep school scholarships for students in his hometown of Charlottesville, Va.

M&T Bank partners with Jets: You may think of Fred Jackson when you think of M&T Bank, but it's now the official bank of the New York Jets, too. M&T also partners with the Ravens (and even owns the naming rights to their stadium), but maybe it just seems weirder since the Jets are a division rival.

Podcast: Sean McDermott is a rookie coach, but does that mean he has rookie clock management, too? When should the Bills have used their timeouts against the Ravens?
