A new face was added to the Bills' lackluster receiving corps Thursday when Cam Phillips was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. He took the place of Robert Foster, who was released to make room. Foster had two catches for 30 yards this season on nine targets and was credited with one drop. Adding Phillips essentially swapped one undrafted rookie f…

Even Sean McDermott couldn't fathom handing Nathan Peterman another start. The Bills on Wednesday named Derek Anderson their starting quarterback, just eight days after signing him off the street. Anderson's attention has been focused on his three young children since the Panthers were eliminated from the playoffs last season, but a week ago he added mentoring Bills roo…

It was hard to watch Nathan Peterman's latest collapse. On a basic human level, I feel bad for the guy. The Bills keep asking him to do something he just can't do. The results are humiliating, but less unexpected each time. Yet, starting Peterman is still a consideration this week. That incredible circumstance is thanks to both Josh Allen's elbow injury and a chronic la…

Former Chargers team doctor David J. Chao, who is better known as @ProFootballDoc on Twitter, said Monday night that he believes Bills' rookie quarterback Josh Allen has an ulnar collateral ligament sprain that could keep him out into November. Allen injured his right, throwing elbow in Sunday's loss to the Texans. Coach Sean McDermott described Allen as "week-to-week" …

Josh Allen stood on the sideline while Nathan Peterman threw the game away. In a flashback to their historic season opening loss, the Bills put their hopes in the incapable hands of Peterman on Sunday. And Peterman delivered like only he can, throwing the winning touchdown — to the wrong team — and an encore interception to close out a 20-13 loss to the Texans. "It’s no…

The Bills found a winning formula at home last week, making opportunistic plays on defense and running the football to take pressure off rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Can they continue that trend on the road today in Houston? Pregame primer: All the details you need to know before the 1 p.m. kickoff and Jay Skurski's storylines to watch. Also check out Skurski's sco…

Former Bills defensive end Marcellus Wiley spoke with Vic Carucci for this week's "One-on-One Coverage," and it didn't take long for the Doug Flutie-Rob Johnson debate to be rekindled. "This is no shot at Rob, but Doug would have won that game for us," Wiley said. "It’s just that simple." This of course refers to the Bills' wild-card game against the Titans on Jan. 8…

Bills' No. 1 cornerback Tre'Davious White was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday due to an ankle injury. White's availability for Sunday's game against the Texans doesn't appear to be in jeopardy just yet, but it's certainly a situation worth monitoring considering how valuable White is to the Bills' defense – and how much they're going to need …

Bills

Bills coach Sean McDermott opened his Wednesday press conference by addressing a news report about his team, which was unusual for a man who generally tries to reveal as little as possible in front of the cameras. But this was a report about running back LeSean McCoy, the team's best (and only) offensive weapon. WIVB-TV's Josh Reed reported Tuesday that the Eagles had i…

Bills

The Bills officially signed quarterback Derek Anderson on Tuesday, giving rookie Josh Allen a veteran brain to pick. Anderson hasn't played much in recent years, starting as many games as Allen since Allen's 15th birthday, but he has thrown for more than 10,000 yards in a 12-year career. Anderson served as Carolina's backup QB/mentor to Cam Newton when Bills coach Sean …

The Bills' much-improved run defense is giving up less than 100 yards per game this season. Defenders credited the addition of defensive tackle Star Lotulelei as a key factor. “He's been incredible,” defensive end Jerry Hughes said. “Somebody big who can command double teams. He's not getting knocked off the ball. He's working that double team. Any time you have someone…

Bills

It wasn't pretty, but the Bills found a way to win on Sunday. An opportunistic defense created three crucial takeaways and the offensive line pushed the Bills into position for Stephen Hauschka's walk-off field goal in a 13-12 win over the Tennessee Titans. "There’s no denying Buffalo’s improvement after being shredded through the first two weeks of the season," Jaso…

The Bills haven't scored in their last 1 hour, 36 minutes and 16 seconds of football. They hope to end that steak shortly after Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff against the Titans. Jay Skurski's pregame primer will get you ready for the game, counting down five storylines to watch. Establishing the run seems to be an emphasis this week. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariotta miss…

Frank Wycheck needs no introduction in these parts. But Bills fans may be surprised to learn that one of their biggest villains harbored a lot of respect for fans in Buffalo. "I'm a blue-collar guy. I'm from Philadelphia, just growing up from humble beginnings, and I just feel like that I'd be a guy that would want to play in Buffalo," Wycheck said of why he congratulat…
