The Buffalo Bills are about as close to full health as they can be heading into the season opener. The only player on the 53-man roster to miss Monday’s practice was tight end Tyler Kroft. That has been the case for him since the first practice of the spring, when he suffered a broken foot. The difference is, throughout training camp and the preseason, Kroft was on t…

Being overlooked has become old hat for Tommy Sweeney. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie tight end had just one Football Bowl Subdivision scholarship offer coming out of high school in New Jersey. Despite developing into a first-team, All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a redshirt senior, Sweeney lasted until the seventh round of the NFL Draft. “It definitely puts a c…

Tyree Jackson is in line for an extended audition Thursday. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback is likely to get the start in the preseason finale against the Minnesota Vikings at New Era Field. Barring injury, Jackson will get the entire game as he tries to show the coaching staff and front office he’s worthy of continued employment, either on the 53-man roster, or m…

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…

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…

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, …

Are you excited yet? The Buffalo Bills are 1-0 in the preseason after a 24-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night at New Era Field. To steal a line from Patriots beat reporter Jeff Howe on Twitter, you can't go 23-o if you don't win the first one. In all seriousness, though, here's a look at whose stock is rising and whose is falling after the prese…

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. A free-agent addition from the Raiders, Feliciano has taken most of his snaps at guard during training camp, but the Bills elec…

PITTSFORD – The Buffalo Bills didn’t have to look far for their newest offensive lineman. The team announced before the start of Tuesday’s final practice of training camp at St. John Fisher College that it signed offensive tackle Jarron Jones, a Rochester native who played in high school for Aquinas. Jones had actually been in Rochester over the weekend for the Park …

PITTSFORD – The Buffalo Bills’ abbreviated stay in suburban Rochester wrapped up Tuesday. The team broke training camp at St. John Fisher College after 10 practices and will head home to Orchard Park to prepare for Thursday’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts. The 20th annual camp at Fisher was shorter than usual because the team will head to South Carolin…

PITTSFORD – Few players have more fun on the football field than Shaq Lawson. The Buffalo Bills’ defensive end is seemingly always in the middle of whatever conversation is going on, either on the sideline or in the locker room. On Sunday, Lawson joined some of his defensive linemates in showing off some dance moves while Lakeside’s “Fantastic Voyage” blared over the sp…

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 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 …

Bills rookie tight end Dawson Knox will not practice Sunday with a hamstring injury, joining Jason Croom, who has missed the first part of training camp with a hamstring injury. Minus Knox and Croom and with Tyler Kroft on the physically unable to perform list, the Bills have four healthy tight ends: Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney, Nate Becker and Keith Towbridge. Center M…
