Bills running back LeSean McCoy seemed to be in the clear from his legal trouble as the NFL season began. But the plot thickened Tuesday when the mother of McCoy's child filed an affidavit with the State Court of Fulton County, Ga. that included serious allegations against McCoy. Stephanie Maisonet, the mother of McCoy's 6-year-old son, LeSean Jr., alleged that McCoy ne…

Bills running back LeSean McCoy looked to be in pain as he left the field holding his chest during Sunday's game, and now we know why: He suffered cracked rib cartilage, coach Sean McDermott confirmed Monday. While the injury sounds painful, McDermott said his star running back isn't ruled out for the team's Week 3 visit to Minnesota. “We'll just take it one day at a…

Sunday's game was supposed to be remembered as Josh Allen's first career start. But that will only be a footnote, because cornerback Vontae Davis stole the headlines by outrageously deciding to retire in the middle of the Bills' 31-20 loss. You read that correctly. Two quarters into his Bills career, Davis took off his gear and went home, telling coaches he was finished…

Sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80s are in the forecast for Sunday, which could make it the warmest Bills home opener since 2002, according to News environment reporter TJ Pignataro. That means the only cloud hanging over Orchard Park will be regarding tailgating activity. The Bills have taken steps this offseason to try to cut down on the tailgate theatrics tha…

The Bills' offensive line will catch a break this week. The Chargers announced Thursday that star defensive end Joey Bosa will miss his second straight game due to a bone bruise in his foot. Bills quarterbacks Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen were sacked three times apiece in the season opener. Only the Browns' offensive line allowed more sacks (7) than the Bills' in Week…

Sean McDermott thought long and hard about the decision. He poked and prodded and taught and analyzed for months on end before announcing on Sept. 3 that Nathan Peterman "earned the right" to be the Buffalo Bills' starting quarterback. "I thought his total body of work, all the way back from the spring through the summer and fall camp to this point, he has certainly ear…

Mark Gaughan broke down the construction of NFL rosters for Week 1, and the Bills appear short on homegrown talent. According to Gaughan, the Bills have only 15 players on the roster that they drafted. No team has fewer; that's tied with the Giants for the least in the league. Amazingly, only three of those draft picks predate coach Sean McDermott (Kyle Williams, Shaq L…

The Bills spent all summer trying to figure out which quarterback should start in the regular season. Nathan Peterman got the nod but was pulled in the third quarter of Sunday's season-opening, 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Asked Monday who would start in Week 2, coach Sean McDermott didn't have an answer. It's easy to see reasons why the Bills should turn to rooki…

The Bills are taking on a near-record amount of dead cap space in 2018. General manager Brandon Beane decided to bite multiple bullets in his second season in order to free himself up for the future. However, even though the Bills are projected to have the third-most cap space next season, Beane told The News that the team won't go on a free-agent splurge. "We're sti…

The Bills believe they have a star in the making in second-year cornerback Tre'Davious White. Finding a corner to play on the other side of the field hasn't been so easy. The Bills are just days away from the season opener but still haven't settled on their second starting cornerback, defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier told reporters Thursday. “Sunday is approachin…

The News on Wednesday released its predictions for the Bills' 2018 record, and it's safe to say that the team isn't expected to return to the postseason. Bills beat writers Vic Carucci, Jay Skurski and Mark Gaughan, as well as a handful of other writers, all have the Bills finishing under .500. In fact, all seven writers polled picked the Bills to finish with between fi…
