This week’s Bills Mailbag starts with a look at what the injury to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes might mean for the AFC playoff race. It’s also heavy on what the Bills should do at the NFL trade deadline. Let’s get right to it … Chris Mazella asks: Who would you rank as the top five teams in the AFC now with Patrick Mahomes' status uncertain? Would you put the Bill…

UPDATED: The Bills added three more names to their practice squad, including quarterback Davis Webb, who spent last season and this preseason with the New York Jets, the Bills' Week 1 opponent. Webb was a third-round pick of the New York Giants in 2017 and has yet to appear in an NFL game. He threw four interceptions for the Jets in the preseason and was released ove…

It’s harder to make the Buffalo Bills in 2019 than it was in 2018. That’s exactly the way General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott want it. “If you’re building your roster the right way, that’s what you want,” McDermott said after Thursday night’s preseason finale, a come-from-behind, 27-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. "You want those tough decis…

This week’s Bills Mailbag leads with the phenomenon that Christian Wade is becoming. It also hits on the crowded competition at wide receiver, Tyree Jackson’s chances of making the practice squad, whether it's time to start worrying about Stephen Hauschka and plenty more. Let’s get right to it … @BigD50786709 asks: Why does everyone say Christian Wade can’t make the tea…

For as long as he can remember, Darryl Johnson Jr. has gone by “Bam.” The Buffalo Bills’ rookie defensive end earned the nickname from his parents, Marsha and Darryl Sr., after "The Flintstones" character Bamm-Bamm Rubble, because he had a tendency to slam his toys on the ground. Two decades later, the nickname still fits, but for a different reason. Bamm-Bamm was fa…

PITTSFORD – Here are my top takeaways from Day 6 of Buffalo Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College. 1. Injuries starting to take their toll. Coach Sean McDermott started his press conference Wednesday by announcing that center Mitch Morse is in the NFL’s concussion protocol. Morse was given a veteran rest day Sunday, followed by a day off Monday. It raised some …

The Buffalo Bills added some competition to their roster at defensive end Wednesday ahead of the NFL draft. The team announced a one-year contract with former Detroit Lion Eli Harold. A 6-foot-3-inch, 243-pounder, Harold spent the first three seasons of his pro career with the San Francisco 49ers before spending last season with the Lions. He entered the NFL as a third-…

The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday they have re-signed defensive end Eddie Yarbrough, who had been an exclusive rights free agent, to a one-year contract. Yarbrough finished last season, his second with the Bills, with 21 tackles, giving him 44 for his two-year career.

The Buffalo Bills will have continuity in one key special-teams role in 2019. Long snapper Reid Ferguson, who has appeared in all 32 games over the past two seasons, tweeted Thursday that he’ll be back next year. Ferguson was scheduled to be an exclusive-rights free agent. Ferguson worked with three different punters during the 2018 season, which was not a good o…

Tight end Charles Clay and running back Chris Ivory are back in the lineup as the Buffalo Bills close out the 2018 season Sunday at New Era Field against the Miami Dolphins. Clay was a healthy inactive last week against New England, calling into question his future with the team, while Ivory has missed the last two weeks because of a shoulder injury. With Ivory back in …

Analysis

If there was any doubt about Charles Clay’s future with the Buffalo Bills, it was eliminated Sunday. By making their starting tight end a healthy inactive against the New England Patriots, the Bills sent a clear message that Clay isn’t long for Buffalo. “Just coach's decision,” coach Sean McDermott said. “Production and looking at young guys. When you have opportunit…

Something’s wrong with the New England Patriots. Heard that one before? This time, it’s for real, a legitimate cause for panic from their fans and glee from their legion of haters. Sound familiar? After watching the Pats lose the past two weeks, critics have pounced with a ferocity that has seemingly reached epic proportions. Media types have pumped up the volume on tal…

Eddie Yarbrough thought he knew what it meant to be determined while following his long-shot path to becoming a defensive end for the Buffalo Bills. Undrafted free-agent signee with the Denver Broncos in 2016 after a standout career at Wyoming. Cut at the end of the preseason. Brief, non-playing stint with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. Free-agent…

Analysis

The Buffalo Bills’ season took a turn in Week 9. A 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears at New Era Field dropped the team to 2-7 and made it abundantly clear that a second straight trip to the postseason was highly unlikely. In the days that followed, the team’s focus shifted. The plug was mercifully pulled on the Nathan Peterman Project. More than that, though, a youth mo…

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 …
