There are no real surprises on the Buffalo Bills' list of inactives Monday night. Quarterback Josh Allen (elbow), running back Taiwan Jones (neck) and defensive end Trent Murphy (knee) are out because of injuries. Cornerback Dontae Johnson and offensive linemen Ike Boettger, Wyatt Teller and Conor McDermott were the other inactives. Johnson was in the lineup last wee…

Shaq Lawson might not ever become the type of game-changing defensive end the Buffalo Bills’ previous front office thought it was getting when it chose him in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. That doesn’t mean he’s not a contributor, though. Lawson has carved out a role as a rotational defensive lineman, seeing time at both end and tackle this year. His playing ti…

We’ll know more about the Buffalo Bills’ long-term outlook in 48 hours. The NFL’s trade deadline arrives Tuesday, and there has already been a flurry of activity around the league. Receiver Amari Cooper was dealt from Oakland to Dallas for a first-round draft pick. The Giants have gone into full rebuild mode, sending defensive tackle Damon Harrison to Detroit and corner…

Analysis

When the Bills run: LeSean McCoy was able to practice on a limited basis this week and reportedly is expected to play. While Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy capably filled in after McCoy got hurt against the Colts, neither scares a defense. Just in case the Bills were interested in trading McCoy by Tuesday's deadline, it would be a big help if he could show he’s healthy enou…

Topics addressed in this week's mailbag include Chad Kelly, Nathan Peterman, Kelvin Benjamin and the Bills' return game. Let's get to your questions ... EB asks: Chad Kelly. Thoughts? Jay: In a word, no. Kelly is obviously troubled. He’s been booted from every program he’s been a part of, going back to St. Joe’s. Think about how poor a person’s decision making is if …

The extra day of preparation that Derek Anderson gets this week comes at a good time. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran quarterback showed up on the injury report Thursday as a limited practice participant. Anderson was listed as having calf and back injuries, which would go along with what he had to say after Sunday’s loss to Indianapolis. “I don’t feel great right now. I’…

Brian Daboll knows what awaits the Buffalo Bills. Perhaps that’s why the offensive coordinator was loathe to talk much about it this week. Daboll spent 11 years under Bill Belichick on the New England Patriots’ coaching staff, playing a part in an NFL dynasty. “There’s not much that I haven’t taken from him or learned from him,” Daboll said. “He’s a phenomenal footba…

It’ll be Derek Anderson against Tom Brady. Buffalo Bills coach Josh Allen ruled rookie quarterback Josh Allen out Monday for the team’s Week 8 prime-time game against the New England Patriots, meaning the 35-year-old Anderson will make his second start for the team. The first one didn’t go so well, as Anderson accounted for four of the Bills’ five turnovers with thre…

The Buffalo Bills averaged 6.1 yards per carry Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, easily a season best even without LeSean McCoy. The Bills had yet to top 3.8 yards per carry in any of the first six games, so on the surface Sunday’s effort looks like a positive. It does, however, bring into question why the running game hasn’t been able to do more when McCoy has bee…

INDIANAPOLIS – The game was still very much there for the taking Sunday when Charles Clay made a back-breaking mistake. The Buffalo Bills’ tight end’s lost fumble in the red zone was a critical play in what turned into a blowout loss to the Colts. The Bills trailed, 6-0, at the time and had reached the Indianapolis 13-yard line when Clay had the ball knocked away from h…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: B This isn’t the reason the Buffalo Bills lost. Despite LeSean McCoy contributing just 1 yard, the Bills finished with 135 as a team. Chris Ivory ran hard in gaining 81 yards on 16 carries, while Marcus Murphy showed good burst in gaining 53 yards on just four carries. The team’s average of 6.1 yards per rush was a full two yards bette…

INDIANAPOLIS – Things can always get worse with the Buffalo Bills. Star running back LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion Sunday during the team’s embarrassing 37-5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. It’s the latest blow to a beleaguered offense that is the worst in the NFL. McCoy was hit along the Colts’ sideline by Indianapolis cornerback Kenny Moore II on Buffalo’s sec…

INDIANAPOLIS – Cam Phillips will make his debut for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday against the Colts. The rookie receiver from Virginia Tech is active with fellow rookie Ray-Ray McCloud out for a noninjury reason after not making the trip Saturday. Phillips replaced another rookie receiver, Robert Foster, on the active roster this week. Foster then took the spot on the pra…

Words have turned into actions for the Buffalo Bills. A little more than a year ago, a team meeting was called the night before a home game against the Denver Broncos. The push for social-justice reform had never been stronger in the league, spurred on by President Donald Trump’s inciteful comments about players who protested during the national anthem. Team owners T…
