Opening Statement: Okay, good morning. We’ll go ahead and get started here and give you an update on the injuries: Kyle Williams will not practice today, he remains week-to-week. Kelcie McCray with the hamstring, as well, will not practice. AJ [McCarron] will be limited, we’ll see how he does. He does have some shoulder soreness; we’ll see how he progress through the day. …

Bills coach Sean McDermott wasn't ready to proclaim that rookie Josh Allen could win the starting job with a strong performance in Sunday's preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals. “We’re just taking it one day at a time right now," McDermott said. McDermott said he wanted Allen to go through the "routine" of a normal week with a Sunday game and practices Wedne…

It started in January, in Dana Point, Calif., where Jordan Palmer trains current and future NFL quarterbacks. The objective was to fix Josh Allen's footwork well enough to allow his many physical gifts — size, strength, athleticism and that cannon of an arm — to flourish to where there would be no doubt about him becoming a premium NFL draft pick in April. "I had a p…

There’s no denying the Buffalo Bills’ decision to start Josh Allen on Sunday in the third preseason game is significant. Determining just how significant, though, is a bit more complicated. The third preseason game is traditionally known as the “dress rehearsal” for the regular season. It’s the game that the starters play the most – sometimes into the third quarter. …

Opening statement: We’ll go ahead and open it up this morning to your questions. Q: Any update on AJ [McCarron]? A: Nothing really new, but we’re still working through some things here. He will not practice today, so [there’s] no real change as far as that’s concerned. Q: Do you have any sense of a rough timetable? A: Not at this point, we really don’t. We’re …

Quarterbacks, as you might have predicted, are a popular topic in this week’s Bills Mailbag. Here, for example, are four questions generated after Buffalo’s 19-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. Joey D. asks: Gotta be Josh Allen with the start next game. Gotta see him with the ‘ones.’ Thoughts? Brad Hesch asks: Is Josh Allen…

CLEVELAND – Here are 10 observations from the Bills' 19-17 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. 1. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive line did quarterback AJ McCarron and running back LeSean McCoy no favors. Whether it was failing to open holes or provide pass protection, the starting five up front was a mess. The Bills’ first four driv…

AJ McCarron got the start at quarterback Friday night when the Bills visited the Cleveland Browns in the second preseason game. It did not go as well as he hoped and he now will be sidelined by a hairline fracture in his collarbone, the Buffalo News has learned. McCarron went 3-for-6 for 12 yards and was sacked once, although the offensive line struggled in front of …

1. AJ McCarron’s turn with the starters. We’re assuming this, but it would make sense given the rotation the team has used throughout training camp. All of the quarterbacks played well in the preseason opener, meaning the competition to be the starter remains wide open. McCarron can make his case with a strong showing against a Cleveland team that has a pair of good pass r…

Quarterbacks AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman will be back on the practice field Monday at St. John Fisher College, Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said. "They will be out here ready to go," Daboll said. McCarron had his right leg stepped on during one drill and Peterman had his right (throwing) shoulder checked after falling on it awkwardly. Several m…

Admittedly, the bar is low when it comes to preseason openers, but that was a solid showing from the Bills' offense on Thursday night. For what it's worth, I thought Josh Allen played a better game than social media would have you believe. There are a lot of "analysts" out there who seem to have a big interest in Allen failing to justify their scouting reports of him be…
