Charles Clay's time as the Buffalo Bills' starting tight end might be coming to an end. Clay is a healthy inactive Sunday against the New England Patriots. Clay has struggled mightily since missing two games with a hamstring injury earlier this season, making just two catches for 15 yards in the last four games. He failed to make a catch at the goal line in the fourth q…

LeSean McCoy’s not ready to pack it in. Even though the playoffs are no longer a possibility, the Buffalo Bills’ running back is still eager to get on the field in the final two weeks, starting Sunday in New England. “I want to. I want to get out there and get it going a little bit,” McCoy said Thursday after practice. “I need some more yards. But no, it'll be fun to…

The Buffalo Bills’ youth movement kicked into another gear Sunday. The team had six rookie undrafted free agents playing on offense or defense during a 14-13 win over the Detroit Lions. “We feel good about it. I mean, obviously, we haven’t won as many games as we wanted to win, but the fact remains that we’re building this football team, I feel like, the right way,” …

Analysis

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: C- Without LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory, it figured to be a long day on the ground. It played out that way, as the Buffalo Bills averaged just 3.2 yards per carry. They stuck with the run, though, rushing 37 times. Marcus Murphy had 35 yards on 11 carries before leaving with an arm injury. Rookie undrafted free agent Keith Ford came in…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills are down a pair of running backs. Both starter LeSean McCoy and backup Chris Ivory are inactive Sunday against the Detroit Lions at New Era Field. McCoy is out because of a hamstring injury, while Ivory won't play because of a shoulder injury. Both players were hurt last week against the Jets. That leaves Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford as the two opti…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Availability will be the big question. Starter LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and backup Chris Ivory (shoulder) could not finish last week’s game. Even if both are available, will it make a difference? The running game outside of quarterback Josh Allen has been nonexistent most of the season. Coach Sean McDermott said after last week’s game against New York t…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills have lost their best defensive playmaker for the rest of the season. Second-year linebacker Matt Milano had surgery Monday after suffering a broken fibula in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets. “I thought he really grew this year,” coach Sean McDermott said of Milano, who has six takeaways this year (three interceptions, three …

Bills running back LeSean McCoy carried just two times for 1 yard Sunday before being knocked out of the game with a hamstring injury. Now, he's set to undergo an MRI to learn the severity of that injury, according to a report Monday morning from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport said the results indicate that McCoy will be considered day-to-day this week, leading…

Analysis

Grading the Buffalo Bills RUNNING GAME: B Quarterback Josh Allen’s rushing totals continue to boggle the mind. He added another 101 yards on the ground, giving him 335 over the past three games. The problem is, it’s not a good thing when a quarterback is the team’s leading rusher for three games in a row. Are the Bills having second thoughts about LeSean McCoy coming…

Bills

Grading the Buffalo Bills RUNNING GAME: A- Quarterback Josh Allen’s running ability continues to impress. He broke the franchise record he set last week with 135 yards on just nine attempts. Allen showed good judgement, too, in knowing when to slide or duck out of bounds. Running back LeSean McCoy had 52 yards, but needed 15 carries to get that total – an average of …

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: B Rookie Josh Allen has wheels. He set a franchise single-game rushing record for quarterbacks, finishing with 99 yards on 13 carries. He had more than 100 yards until a pair of kneel downs at the end of the game. Allen’s 14-yard touchdown run on a designed quarterback draw put the Bills up on the first play of the fourth quarter. He l…

Bills

The Nathan Peterman Experience is over. The Buffalo Bills released the much-maligned second-year quarterback Monday night. The writing was on the wall for such a move after Peterman was passed over as the starter Sunday in favor of recently signed Matt Barkley. It was the second time in the last month that the Bills elected to start a quarterback they signed less than t…
