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.

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…

Coach Sean McDermott pu…

Members of the Pro Football Writers of America voted recently for its yearly awards, one of which is the Pete Rozelle Award, which is given to an “NFL club public relations staff that consistently strives for excellence in its dealings and relationships with the media.” This year’s winner was the Minnesota Vikings.

The Bills needed to bolster their cornerback depth this week, so they claimed Tony McRae off waivers from the Ravens. And since new receiver Deonte Thompson made an immediate impact in his first game, fellow receiver Kaelin Clay became the low man on the totem pole and was released to make room. Clay was signed by the Panthers on Tuesday evening, returning to the team t…

Third and 9, ball at the Tampa Bay 32-yard line, 2 minutes remaining and the Buffalo Bills dial up a play for … Taiwan Jones? Yep, that happened Sunday. And guess what? It worked.

John Miller has gone from starter to backup to out of the lineup entirely over the last few weeks for the Buffalo Bills. Miller is a healthy inactive Sunday, when the Bills host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Era Field. That means Vlad Ducasse will start at right guard – and has won that competition. Also inactive for the Bills are: tight end Charles Clay (knee), li…

Don't blame Tyrod Taylor for Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. No, he wasn't perfect. But the Buffalo Bills could be 5-0 if they had better receivers, or maybe if they used them at all. The Bills are in better shape than we expected. They enter their bye week tied atop the AFC East at 3-2, same as the New England Patriots and New York Jets. They hung tough …

CINCINNATI – Tyrod Taylor neatly summarized the Buffalo Bills’ offensive performance Sunday. “The offense didn’t play the way we needed to win against a very good defense,” Taylor said after a 20-16 loss at soggy Paul Brown Stadium. “I’ll take full responsibility for that.” Taylor’s numbers weren’t pretty – 20 of 37 for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception. …

CINCINNATI – There is a short list of players the Buffalo Bills can least afford to lose this season, and tight end Charles Clay is near the top. Unfortunately for the Bills, that’s what happened Sunday in a 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. Clay suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter when he was hit by Bengals safety Shawn Williams …
