Micah Hyde loves the "game within the game." The Buffalo Bills’ veteran safety understands the key to disrupting opposing offenses isn’t necessarily possessing superior athleticism, but sowing confusion.

But the more critical perfo…

ORCHARD PARK — Ed Oliver pulled on his No. 91 jersey and walked through the tunnel at New Era Field for the first time Friday night. The Bills’ first-round draft pick wasn’t prepared for the sight. “I looked around and saw a whole bunch of ‘91’ jerseys,” the rookie defensive tackle said, “and I haven't even stepped on the field here, so it just shows you how much the…

PITTSFORD – Duke Williams was among the first players to split off from the group at large and head to an adjacent practice field, where the Buffalo Bills’ backups worked apart from the starters during one session of training camp practice Tuesday at St. John Fisher College.

Matt Milano spent the offseason rehabbing his broken left leg and boning up on the playbook.

Trent Murphy isn’t a patient man. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran defensive end drove five hours, in the dark, through a snowstorm one night in March 2018, rather than flying to Buffalo the next morning, because he couldn’t wait to sign his contract. He couldn’t wait to get back on the field. Just seven months earlier, Murphy blew out his left knee during a preseason g…

It was with pride and pain that Buffalo Bills safety Siran Neal wore his new No. 33 jersey as a tribute to his late childhood friend, as the second-year pro spent an afternoon last week running around with a handful of teammates and horde of children at Hillview Elementary School in Lancaster. “My brother, he died, he got in a car crash right before I got drafted last y…

It was only a handful of years ago when Lorenzo Alexander and Heath Farwell were division rivals in the NFC West, Alexander a linebacker and special teams ace for the Arizona Cardinals, Farwell in a similar role with the Seattle Seahawks.

Matt Milano doesn’t want to think about the gruesome dislocated ankle and fractured fibula that ended his second season in the NFL. He’d rather forget about that Week 14, fourth-quarter play with 1:38 on the clock, when the New York Jets faced third-and-goal from the 4-yard line and the Buffalo Bills were still clinging to a 23-20 lead, that moment when Sam Darnold was …
