Even for a first-round draft pick, there is an indoctrination period when it comes to fitting into an NFL locker room. Ed Oliver is going through that process right now with the Buffalo Bills, and according to defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, making big strides. “He's becoming more open to talking with his teammates and integrating with his teammates,” Frazier s…

The Buffalo Bills have set out to give Josh Allen as much work as possible this preseason. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has gone pass heavy on the playcalling when the starting offense has been on the field through two exhibition games – with 27 called pass plays against just seven designed rushing attempts. “It’s not a game-plan-based thing. It’s really what w…

Ryan Bates has learned quickly that the NFL is in business. One minute, the former Philadelphia Eagles’ rookie offensive lineman is getting ready to go for dinner and a movie with his girlfriend. The next, his phone rings and he’s a member of the Buffalo Bills. Bates was traded to the Bills by the Eagles on Friday in exchange for defensive end Eli Harold. On Sunday, …

The Buffalo Bills continue to search for the right combination along their offensive line. During Thursday’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field, a new combination took the field – featuring Jon Feliciano at center.

Waddle joins center Mitch M…

Here are my observations from the Bills’ eighth practice of training camp Friday night: 1. Tommy Sweeney isn’t quite the last man standing at tight end for the Buffalo Bills, but it’s getting close. Sweeney, a seventh-round draft pick out of Boston College, has risen up the depth chart this summer mostly because of what’s happening around him. Presumed starter Tyler …

Barring and unforeseen move, the Bills will enter training camp with 16 offensive linemen on the roster. It can be hard to keep them all straight. But if that sounds like you, you're in luck: Mark Gaughan's training camp preview of the offensive line sorts things out nicely. Here's how the position looks entering camp, from left to right across the line: Left tack…

There’s usually no tackling for the Buffalo Bills in the spring. That NFL rule got broken more than a few times Monday, though. In conjunction with the league’s Inspire Change Initiative, six members of the team visited Bornhava, an Amherst-based early childhood center for children with developmental disabilities. The kids there had huge smiles on their faces as they to…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Guess who’s back, back again? Shady’s back, tell a friend.

LeSean McCoy has eluded media members much better in the last week than he has defenders. The Buffalo Bills’ running back was a no-show on the field and in the losing locker room after his team’s 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday at New Era Field. McCoy gained just 10 yards on 10 carries in the loss. Over the last three weeks, McCoy has run 24 times … for 24 y…
