Heart and soul are the words that invariably come up at the mere mention of Kyle Williams. Heart and soul of the Buffalo Bills' defense. Heart and soul of the entire team. "Honestly, you can't even put it in words, that's how important he is to this team," Adolphus Washington said of his fellow defensive tackle Sunday. Earlier in the day, coach Sean McDermott told…

CLEVELAND — Let’s dispense with the suspense. Josh Allen is your Day One starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. At least, he should be. It was separation time when the Bills faced the Cleveland Browns Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. And after entering the Bills’ 19-17 victory in the second quarter, Allen separated himself from AJ McCarron and Nathan Pete…

CLEVELAND – Buffalo Bills quarterback AJ McCarron suffered a hairline fracture in his collarbone in Friday night's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, The Buffalo News has learned.

CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton has been told he should run for mayor of Buffalo, because he'd likely win. In a landslide. "I hear it all the time," Dalton said, flashing a sheepish smile. "Walking through an airport or something like that, I still get a random, 'Hey, I'm a Bills fan. Appreciate ya!' Stuff like that." For the last five months, the daily Bills buzz has be…

PITTSFORD – For the second practice in a row, Josh Allen worked exclusively with the No. 2 offense during the second-to-last session of the summer at the Buffalo Bills' St. John Fisher College training camp Tuesday. Nathan Peterman, who had been with the third unit Monday after getting first-team reps Sunday, worked full-time with the starters. AJ McCarron, who had been…

PITTSFORD — At 16, Harrison Phillips understood something other football-playing dreamers his age didn’t. If you’re serious about playing in the NFL one day, you must pay a serious price to get there. That doesn’t mean simply working hard. It means working well beyond the point when your body starts screaming at you to stop. It means showing a tolerance for pain and exhaus…

The former girlfriend of LeSean McCoy is suing the Buffalo Bills running back and another man for damages stemming from a July 10 home invasion during which she alleges she was injured. Delicia Cordon claimed that McCoy and Tamarcus Jerod Porter are “liable for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress” she suffered while in the suburban Atlanta…

PITTSFORD – There was a notable change to the practice rotation of the Buffalo Bills' quarterbacks Monday. Josh Allen, who has spent the bulk of his time in the No. 3 spot, not only worked with the second team, but did so for his most prolonged stretch since training camp began July 26 at St. John Fisher College. AJ McCarron, who had suffered an injury to his lower r…

Bills

PITTSFORD — It was a painful practice for two of the Buffalo Bills' three quarterbacks Sunday at training camp. AJ McCarron had his right leg stepped on during one drill and Nathan Peterman had his right (throwing) shoulder checked after falling on it awkwardly during another at St. John Fisher College. Several minutes after practice, McCarron was walking gingerly an…

A month after a home invasion in which she was beaten and robbed, the former girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy issued a statement, believed to be her first public comments since the attack, on Instagram Friday offering gratitude to those who have supported her and saying that she continues to fight "for justice to be served." "I want to take a moment…

When he erupts into a fit of rage that makes yellow flags fly, Jerry Hughes momentarily ceases to exist. He doesn't merely take on a different personality from the one who, off the field, can be disarming and even utterly charming. He assumes a whole new identity, at least to those who know the Buffalo Bills' defensive end best. Say goodbye to Jerry. Say hello to Gar…

Bills

Nathan Peterman and AJ McCarron did some nice things in splitting the first half of Thursday night’s preseason opener. Both made decent throws and good decisions with where to go with the ball. Both moved the offense well enough to give the Buffalo Bills a 17-7 halftime lead against the Carolina Panthers. Both were, for the most part, solid and efficient in a game the B…
