Bills

It's often said that playing quarterback requires a short memory. Holding on to a recent failure can plant the doubt that facilitates another mistake. Success requires a degree of confidence that has no place for fear or hesitation. Bills linebacker Matt Milano is taking that idea to an extreme as he returns from a broken leg that ended his 2018 season. His method of re…

Matt Milano doesn’t want to think about the gruesome dislocated ankle and fractured fibula that ended his second season in the NFL. He’d rather forget about that Week 14, fourth-quarter play with 1:38 on the clock, when the New York Jets faced third-and-goal from the 4-yard line and the Buffalo Bills were still clinging to a 23-20 lead, that moment when Sam Darnold was …

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…

The Buffalo Bills took talents from South Florida on Saturday. On the final day of the NFL Draft, the team looked to the Miami area twice, selecting Florida linebacker Vosean Joseph in the fifth round and Miami safety Jaquan Johnson in the sixth round. Both Joseph and Johnson list Miami as their hometown, while running back Devin Singletary – chosen Friday in the third …

One of the remaining marquee free agents in the NFL remains on the Buffalo Bills' radar. During an appearance Thursday morning on WGR 550, Bills General Manager Brandon Beane provided an update on the team's interest in Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who made a free-agent visit to Orchard Park last week, but remains unsigned. "We had a great visit with Zigg…

So far, the Buffalo Bills' offseason has been dominated by a move they didn't make. The team's reported interest in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers for star receiver Antonio Brown never came to be, but it was a clear sign that General Manager Brandon Beane will be aggressive in trying to build talent around quarterback Josh Allen. Beane gets the chance to do tha…

Welcome to the first celebrity Bills Mailbag. Check out the first question to see what I mean. Topics this week include the possibility of adding Antonio Brown in a trade, what the team might do with all of its cap space and what’s in store for Duke Williams. Let’s get to it … Luke Russert asks: Do you think there’s a mindset within One Bills Drive that the clock rea…

Welcome to the mailbag. This week, we're tackling the future of Thomas Davis, comparing the two Duke Williams, debating Shaq Lawson's future and projecting the number of trades the Bills will swing. Let's get to it ... Rick McGuire asks: Any chance the Bills sign former Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis? Seems to me he could be a great teacher/mentor for the younger guys…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F A non-factor all game. LeSean McCoy had six carries for 9 yards. His future with the Bills is looking cloudier with each passing week. McCoy rarely had room to run, which starts with his offensive line. Still, he doesn’t look like the same dominant player he’s long been. It says something when McCoy has a game like he did and undraft…

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…

Analysis

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: C- Without LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory, it figured to be a long day on the ground. It played out that way, as the Buffalo Bills averaged just 3.2 yards per carry. They stuck with the run, though, rushing 37 times. Marcus Murphy had 35 yards on 11 carries before leaving with an arm injury. Rookie undrafted free agent Keith Ford came in…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Availability will be the big question. Starter LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and backup Chris Ivory (shoulder) could not finish last week’s game. Even if both are available, will it make a difference? The running game outside of quarterback Josh Allen has been nonexistent most of the season. Coach Sean McDermott said after last week’s game against New York t…

Bills

Detroit Lions-Buffalo Bills in late December was always going to be a tough sell. That's played out this week, as tickets were available on the secondary market for as little as $6 as of Thursday. Even though there are no playoff implications, there is plenty for Bills fans to watch for Sunday. That starts with Josh Allen and the continued development of the offense.…

The Bills promoted running back Keith Ford and cornerback Dean Marlowe from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. They take the spots of linebacker Matt Milano and cornerback Taron Johnson, who were placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Milano had surgery for a broken fibula Monday and Johnson had shoulder surgery last week. Ford's promotion was anticipated in the wa…
