PITTSFORD — Another day, another injury along the Buffalo Bills' suddenly ravaged offensive line. Reserve tackle LaAdrian Waddle left Sunday's practice at St. John Fisher College on a cart after suffering an apparent leg injury, the latest setback for an offensive line that has struggled to find any sort of continuity during training camp. 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 …

PITTSFORD – Here are my top takeaways from Day 7 of Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College. 1. Dialing it back. The Bills practiced in shorts and shells Thursday after four consecutive workouts in pads. As such, the intensity level was down a couple of notches. With a night practice looming Friday at New Era Field, coach Sean McDermott went heavy on veteran rest…

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…

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…

From working at a hot dog stand to dancing at a wedding to a long walk around Tuscaloosa, the six undrafted rookies on the Bills' roster had to find a way to deal with the likelihood they'd be passed over on April 28, the final day of the 2018 NFL Draft. Eight months later, they now have the opportunity of a lifetime. With Buffalo eliminated from playoff contention a…

Robert Foster's late touchdown helped lift the Bills to a 14-13 victory over the Lions on Sunday and capped an incredible day for the team's undrafted free agents. The Bills used six UDFAs in the win – three on offense and three on defense. Jay Skurski broke them down by numbers of snaps played: Wide receiver Robert Foster (57), cornerback Levi Wallace (56), running …

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,” …

Lorenzo Alexander is 35 years old. That fact continues to blow the minds of his teammates on the Buffalo Bills’ defense. “Zo's a beast. Everything he does for us, especially at his age, man, this dude is a beast,” safety Micah Hyde said. On Sunday, that included stepping into a new role. With Matt Milano out for the season because of a broken fibula, Alexander played…

The public-address announcer inside the Buffalo Bills’ press box was having trouble keeping up with the injury announcements Sunday. Both the home team and the New York Jets dealt with several injuries during the visitors’ 27-23 victory. “The way the previous game we played against them went, we knew they were going to come in with an edge,” Bills safety Jordan Poyer…

A toe injury suffered in practice Thursday won't keep Isaiah McKenzie out of the lineup Sunday for the Buffalo Bills against the New York Jets. McKenzie was listed as questionable after being limited in practice Friday by the injury. His availability took on more importance after the team released wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes earlier in the week. Undr…

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…

The Buffalo Bills were on the ropes, but they fought back Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field. A massive brawl erupted late in the third quarter Sunday, with the end result benefiting the home team in a 24-21 win. Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette started throwing punches at Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson, who returned the favor. That led to b…
