Bills

I missed Eric Wood in the Bills' locker room this week. The team's former center would annually host a Thanksgiving eating challenge for his teammates. The goal was simple: Add the most percentage of body weight. Richie Incognito was recognized as the toughest to beat, although there was some speculation as to some of his methods being a little shady. I hope everyone…

This year's Bills quarterback carousel is one for the ages. If rookie Josh Allen returns to the starting lineup Sunday, which he is expected to do, it would give the Bills an unusual record for the most consecutive weeks using a different starting quarterback. Officially, Allen would be the Bills' fifth starting quarterback in their past five games. Derek Anderson st…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Finally. That’s what LeSean McCoy had to be saying after cracking 100 yards for the first time this season against the Jets. A change along the offensive line, inserting rookie Wyatt Teller for veteran left guard Vlad Ducasse, seemed to work wonders. The Bills should be at full strength at the position, with Chris Ivory back to face his old team after m…

Josh Allen’s return is all but official. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback participated fully in a short practice Monday as the team returned from its bye week, the latest sign that Allen will make his much-anticipated return to the lineup Sunday when the Jacksonville Jaguars visit New Era Field. A sprained throwing elbow suffered in Week 6 against Houston kept Alle…

Rookie Josh Allen is expected to return to the starting lineup this week when the Bills play host to the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field on Sunday. Allen, out the past four games with a ligament injury in his right elbow, is practicing fully on Monday and is on track to start, said Bills coach Sean McDermott. "I’m excited to see him back on the field, excited t…

Bills

Quarterback Nathan Peterman, the Buffalo Bills' starter in the season opener, has been released, the team announced Monday night. The move comes as the Bills head into their bye week and after coach Sean McDermott said he and General Manager Brandon Beane would determine whether the team wanted to keep four quarterbacks. Asked his confidence level with Peterman, McDe…

Bills

The Nathan Peterman Experience is over. The Buffalo Bills released the much-maligned second-year quarterback Monday night. The writing was on the wall for such a move after Peterman was passed over as the starter Sunday in favor of recently signed Matt Barkley. It was the second time in the last month that the Bills elected to start a quarterback they signed less than t…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Buffalo Bills must continue to start Matt Barkley after the bye week, when they play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 25 at New Era Field. It doesn’t matter if Josh Allen is healthy. It doesn’t matter that the rookie is the future of the franchise. After the offensive eruption we just witnessed – the Barkley-led Bills hanging 31 points …

Bills

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Bills announced Saturday. Allen will miss his fourth consecutive game since suffering a strained throwing elbow against the Texans. Matt Barkley, who signed with the team less than two weeks ago, will make his first NFL start since he started six games with the Bears — going 1-5 …

Bills. Jets. Barkley (maybe). McCown. Feel the excitement. Let's get to this week's mailbag ... Jim Eimer asks: Has Bills management ever explained why they neglected offense (quarterback depth, wide receiver, offensive line)? They’ve become the Cleveland Browns of the NFL — a laughingstock. Jay: Here’s what I think happened: The team made the decision to move on …

Analysis

When the Bills run: The struggles of the running game have come into focus this week. LeSean McCoy has 24 attempts in the last three games. Those have produced 24 yards. Backup Chris Ivory has been the more the effective runner, but he’s dealing with a shoulder injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday. The offensive line shares some of the blame here, because there h…

Bills

Will it be Matt Barkley time when the Buffalo Bills face the New York Jets Sunday? His extensive work with starters in practice, Josh Allen being listed as questionable with an elbow injury, Derek Anderson being sidelined with a concussion, and coach Sean McDermott not naming a starter for the game Friday raises that as a distinct possibility. Barkley, who the Bills …

One celebrated rookie quarterback is close to returning, while another is staring at the possibility of missing some time. The Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday as he recovers from a sprained throwing elbow. The New York Jets’ Sam Darnold, conversely, was unable to practice because of a sprained foot. Reports out of the Big Appl…
