CHICAGO – Gamesmanship apparently never stops for Sean McDermott. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach elected not to announce a starting lineup before Thursday’s preseason finale against the Bears at Soldier Field. What’s more, the Bills didn’t provide a list of those who would not play at all. For comparison, the Bears listed 37 players who would sit out the game. That’s …

When was the last time a preseason game generated this much buzz? I wouldn't be surprised if there are 60,000 people in the stands Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. The highlight, of course, will be rookie quarterback Josh Allen working with the starters – an excellent opportunity for him to win the starting role for the season …

QB Josh Allen On the touchdown pass: “We had a little window fill back there and (Bills WR) Rod (Streater) got open. We had a guy coming in pretty free, just trying to make a play. Rod is a long-time vet, he knew where be at the right moment. I just had to get it out of my hands to him, he made the play.” On his performance: “ It felt good, just getting out the…

CLEVELAND – The top of the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart at wide receiver is starting to crystallize. After that, though, it’s still anyone’s guess as to who has the inside track for a spot on the 53-man roster. The first three receivers into Friday night’s second preseason game against the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium were Kelvin Benjamin, Jeremy Kerley and … Zay Jones. …

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…

PITTSFORD – Trent Murphy does not sound close to a return for the Buffalo Bills. The veteran defensive end was held out of practice Wednesday as the team concluded training camp at St. John Fisher College because of a groin injury coach Sean McDermott described as “a little nagging right now.” “We’re trying to figure it out, honestly,” McDermott said. “I think it’s n…

Pencil is definitely the best writing tool to use when jotting down the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart at wide receiver. At any given practice, a steady shuffling with the starters takes place among the 13 receivers competing for anywhere between five and seven jobs on the 53-man roster. On Friday, it was Ray-Ray McCloud’s turn to take some reps with the first unit. McCl…

The Bills' first preseason home game takes place at 7 p.m. Aug. 9 vs. the Carolina Panthers. Here's what you need to be paying attention to. 1. The quarterbacks. Duh. Through two weeks of training camp, there has not been a noticeable separation between Nathan Peterman, AJ McCarron and Josh Allen. Who gets the call as the starter? Do both McCarron and Peterman play with…

PITTSFORD -- An injury to John Miller during Monday's practice provided a glimpse into how the Buffalo Bills view their options along the offensive line. Stepping in for Miller at right guard was Ryan Groy, who to this point in training camp has worked exclusively at center, alternating with Russell Bodine between the starters and second unit. Coach Sean McDermott pu…

General Manager Brandon Beane Q: What was it about [Corey] Coleman’s skill set that was the reason you went about acquiring him? A: You know, Corey, his speed — I remember scouting him in college. We actually did a private with him, so I got to know him a little bit [and] his makeup and all of that. It hadn’t worked out in Cleveland, probably the way he thought [when…
