Bills defensive tackle and team leader Kyle Williams is week-to-week with a knee injury suffered in Friday's preseason game against the Browns, according to coach Sean McDermott, but right now it seems like he won't need surgery. "Not at this time," McDermott said, "but we’ll just take it one day at a time as well." Vic Carucci reported that Williams was seen in the …

Week 2 of the preseason isn't exactly a high-stakes game. But the Bills and Browns aren't scheduled to meet during the regular season, so outside of an unlikely playoff meeting, Friday night will be Tyrod Taylor's only chance to face the team that traded him after he ended its 17-year playoff drought. Taylor is known for being mild-mannered, but he told Cleveland report…

Wednesday was the final day of Bills training camp, but the team's quarterback depth chart remains far from settled. Neither free-agent addition AJ McCarron, 2017 draft pick Nathan Peterman nor 2018 first-rounder Josh Allen has been able to solidify the starting role. "I think all three have certainly had their moments, both good and bad," coach Sean McDermott said. …

The News' Jay Skurski posted his latest 53-man roster projection on Tuesday. He included only three running backs on the final roster, allowing the team to keep four tight ends and nine offensive lineman. With LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory seen as locks to occupy the top two running back positions, that could make the fight for the third running back spot one of the tigh…

The ex-girlfriend of Bills running back LeSean McCoy, who was the victim of an assault last month at a home McCoy owns, filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that McCoy and his friend/manager, TJ Porter, are "liable for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress." The 22-page lawsuit (which you can read in its entirety at the end of this story) attempt…

Jim Kubiak runs the WNY Quarterback Academy and is a former professional QB and Arena League offensive coordinator. He'll also be grading the Bills' quarterbacks this season for The News. Kubiak gave starter Nathan Peterman the highest grade of the Bills' three quarterbacks from the preseason opener – a near-perfect 99 percent. AJ McCarron earned a grade of 94 percent w…

Bills quarterbacks Nathan Peterman, AJ McCarron and Josh Allen seem to be having trouble distinguishing themselves during training camp, but all three looked good Thursday night in the team's preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers. Peterman got the start and completed 9 of 10 passes for 119 yards, a touchdown and an interception. McCarron completed 7 of 10 passe…

Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen has now practiced with the third team for four consecutive days, Mark Gaughan reported. Coach Sean McDermott said that shows the team is sticking with its plan for the quarterback rotation in camp. “Calculated,” McDermott said of the team's approach to Allen's workload. “Like I said before ... I’ve been around two situations in Don…

The Bills' trade for Cleveland wideout Corey Coleman may not propel their receiving corps into the top half of the league, but the Bills are certainly better because of the move. But one of the best parts of the trade from Buffalo's perspective was the return: The Bills sent a mere 2020 seventh-round draft pick for Coleman, whom the Browns essentially gave away. Bill…

How nice of a weight room can you buy with $18 million? The Bills are about to find out. "Team owners Terry and Kim Pegula are funding a massive $18 million renovation of the weight room inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center, which Bills officials say will give the team the best such facility in the NFL," Jay Skurski reported Friday. You can view renderings of what…

The NFL approved a rule change this season that will assess a 15-yard penalty to any player, on offense or defense, who "lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent." It remains to be seen how strictly officials will follow the letter of the law. Bills players had meetings with officials this week about how the new rule will be enfor…

Bills

Through the first week of training camp, reviews on each of the Bills' three quarterback have been mixed. Nathan Peterman, A.J. McCarron and Josh Allen have all appeared to have some good days, but they've had their share of misses, too. Does Bills coach Sean McDermott see it that way as well? McDermott was asked Wednesday if he has seen any separation among his thre…

Even before he was a Buffalo Bill, Harrison Phillips was drawing comparisons to Kyle Williams. The two defensive tackles look similar, and they play like each other, too. "The first tape I popped on (of Phillips), I said, 'This looks like Kyle Williams coming out of LSU,' " NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah told The News in March. "He reminds me so much of him, the st…

John Hughes was literally in his house hoping the phone would ring last week when the Buffalo Bills finally called with an invite to training camp. Hughes, the last player added to the Bills' roster before camp opened, shared his story with Jay Skurski. "On Wednesday I found out in I was supposed to be on a plane here in three hours," Hughes said. "The plane ended up…
