[BN] Blitz newsletter: Reggie Ragland will face his former team this week

The Bills traded up to draft Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland 41st overall in the 2016 draft. He never played a down for the team, thanks to a preseason injury last year and a preseason trade this year, but he'll get to face his former team Sunday when his Chiefs (6-4) host the Bills (5-5).

"He had a good game for us this past week," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "Like a lot of cases, sometimes change of scenery is good. ... It's part of the business, and sometimes it can work out for you. He's making the best of it right now."
