This is the third part of a series looking at 10 questions facing the Bills entering training camp, which begins July 25. Today’s question: Is LeSean McCoy still the man at running back? Brandon Beane did his best to get out in front of the question before it even could be asked. Minutes after the Buffalo Bills’ general manager selected Florida Atlantic running back …

T.J. Yeldon entered the NFL with great expectations. He was a college star at Alabama, ranking fifth on the program’s all-time rushing yardage list, with 3,322, and became the third running back chosen in 2015 when the Jacksonville Jaguars used the 36th overall selection in the second round on him. After four years, though, it’s fair to say Yeldon hasn’t quite lived …

This is the second in a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 25 start of training camp. The Buffalo Bills have an overabundance of running backs heading into the start of training camp. Last year’s starter, LeSean McCoy, is back for what could be his final season with the Bills. His contract expires after this year. He’s joined by a…

This week's Bills Mailbag focuses on LeSean McCoy's future, the biggest remaining position of need … and my son's golf game. Let's get right to it: Jim Eimer asks: Who will be the biggest surprise cut? If you were general manager, what is a blockbuster trade you would consider — either trading away or a position of upgrade? Jay: Both answers involve LeSean McCoy. The…

Jordan Poyer had a message for Josh Allen on Wednesday. After the Buffalo Bills’ safety knocked down a pass in the end zone from the team’s second-year quarterback, Poyer yelled “don’t do that, Josh.” It wasn’t exactly clear whether Poyer meant don't attempt that throw against him, or in general. What was clear, though, is that the competition level for a June min…

Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it. Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander figures to immediately step into that role, but he’s already announced the 2019 season will be his last. That means the Bills will be looking for another defensive player to emerge. As…

Frank Gore Jr., the son of the Buffalo Bills running back, has committed to Florida Atlantic, he announced on Twitter. Gore Jr., a Class of 2020 running back from Killian High in Miami, had five scholarship offers, including one from the University at Buffalo. His other offers were from Kentucky, Southern Miss and Chattanooga. Gore Jr. was rated as a three-star prosp…

NFL teams usually dread the period between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp. It’s a time when players return home, unwind, and sometimes find themselves in trouble. The Buffalo Bills didn’t have to wait for that period to start next month, though, as trouble found rookie linebacker Tyrel Dodson last weekend. Dodson was arrested in Scottsdale, Ariz.,…

The Buffalo Bills’ injury report Tuesday read more like a particularly tough week in the regular season. Before the team headed out to the practice field, coach Sean McDermott read a lengthy list of players who wouldn’t participate, including three of the team’s big free-agent additions. “Tyler Kroft yesterday sustained a broken foot and will have surgery today,” cam…

Tyler Kroft, the Bills' expected starter at tight end, broke a foot on the first day of organized team activities Monday, coach Sean McDermott told reporters Tuesday. Kroft will have surgery Tuesday. It is the second time he has broken the same foot within the last six…

Props to you, the readers, for providing some great questions this week in the Bills Mailbag. A programming note: If yours didn't make it this week, I've got it saved for next week. Let's get to it ... Viva Los Bills #PonchoPower asks: What returning starter from last season is the most likely not to make the team in 2019? Jay: First of all, well done on the name.…

LeSean McCoy’s yards-per-carry average has gone from 5.4 to 4.0 to 3.2 over the past three seasons with the Buffalo Bills. If the decline continues at that pace, Shady will average 2.7 a carry in 2019. Yes, this is meant in jest. The Bills have 39 million good reasons to expect McCoy to rebound from his career-worst 2018 season. That’s the amount of guaranteed dol…

Sixty-six rushing touchdowns in a 38-game collegiate career. How, Devin Singletary was asked, did he manage that? “Just growing up in South Florida (Deerfield Beach), playing little league football, it’s big down there,” the former Florida Atlantic star told reporters during a conference call shortly after the Buffalo Bills made him a third-round draft pick last Frid…

A crowded Buffalo Bills running back room will have to make room for one more. With its third-round pick, No. 74 overall, the team selected Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary on Friday night -- a pick that promises to produce plenty of speculation. Singletary joins a running back depth chart in Buffalo that already includes LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, T.J. Yel…

Running back might now be less of a draft need for the Buffalo Bills. That's because the team announced a two-year contract agreement with running back T.J. Yeldon on Monday. Yeldon, 25, is a former second-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2015 who spent the first four years of his career in Jacksonville. In 51 career games, the Alabama product started 30 of those and …
