This is the third part of a series looking at 10 questions facing the Bills entering training camp, which begins July 25. Today’s question: Is LeSean McCoy still the man at running back? Brandon Beane did his best to get out in front of the question before it even could be asked. Minutes after the Buffalo Bills’ general manager selected Florida Atlantic running back …

T.J. Yeldon entered the NFL with great expectations. He was a college star at Alabama, ranking fifth on the program’s all-time rushing yardage list, with 3,322, and became the third running back chosen in 2015 when the Jacksonville Jaguars used the 36th overall selection in the second round on him. After four years, though, it’s fair to say Yeldon hasn’t quite lived …

This is the second in a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 25 start of training camp. The Buffalo Bills have an overabundance of running backs heading into the start of training camp. Last year’s starter, LeSean McCoy, is back for what could be his final season with the Bills. His contract expires after this year. He’s joined by a…

This week's Bills Mailbag focuses on LeSean McCoy's future, the biggest remaining position of need … and my son's golf game. Let's get right to it: Jim Eimer asks: Who will be the biggest surprise cut? If you were general manager, what is a blockbuster trade you would consider — either trading away or a position of upgrade? Jay: Both answers involve LeSean McCoy. The…

Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it. Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander figures to immediately step into that role, but he’s already announced the 2019 season will be his last. That means the Bills will be looking for another defensive player to emerge. As…

NFL teams usually dread the period between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp. It’s a time when players return home, unwind, and sometimes find themselves in trouble. The Buffalo Bills didn’t have to wait for that period to start next month, though, as trouble found rookie linebacker Tyrel Dodson last weekend. Dodson was arrested in Scottsdale, Ariz.,…

Props to you, the readers, for providing some great questions this week in the Bills Mailbag. A programming note: If yours didn't make it this week, I've got it saved for next week. Let's get to it ... Viva Los Bills #PonchoPower asks: What returning starter from last season is the most likely not to make the team in 2019? Jay: First of all, well done on the name.…

Bills

It was a (checks calendar) chilly start to rookie minicamp Friday for The Buffalo News. A total of 54 drafted rookies, undrafted free-agent signings, first-year veterans and tryout players practiced outside on the grass fields at One Bills Drive on a day that felt more like November than May. Enough of my complaining, though, let's get to this week's mailbag ... Nick…

Sixty-six rushing touchdowns in a 38-game collegiate career. How, Devin Singletary was asked, did he manage that? “Just growing up in South Florida (Deerfield Beach), playing little league football, it’s big down there,” the former Florida Atlantic star told reporters during a conference call shortly after the Buffalo Bills made him a third-round draft pick last Frid…

Bills

A crowded Buffalo Bills running back room will have to make room for one more. With its third-round pick, No. 74 overall, the team selected Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary on Friday night -- a pick that promises to produce plenty of speculation. Singletary joins a running back depth chart in Buffalo that already includes LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, T.J. Yel…

The Bills entered the week of the 2019 NFL Draft with Keith Ford as their only running back under contract for 2020. LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore are expected to shoulder the load this season, but the plan beyond that seemed murky. With that in mind, running back was considered somewhat of a draft need for the Bills, whose top two running backs are both on the wrong side…

Bills

Running back might now be less of a draft need for the Buffalo Bills. That's because the team announced a two-year contract agreement with running back T.J. Yeldon on Monday. Yeldon, 25, is a former second-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2015 who spent the first four years of his career in Jacksonville. In 51 career games, the Alabama product started 30 of those and …

Paul Posluszny was two steps behind but probably couldn't see him through the exhaust fumes. LeSean McCoy was gone. On the first play out of halftime, the Buffalo Bills were on their own 25-yard line. Tyrod Taylor took the snap out of a pistol formation, pivoted to his left and tucked the ball between McCoy's forearms. McCoy locked his left hand, surgically repair…

LeSean McCoy's first seven carries were for minus-2 yards. His next two traveled 82 yards and crossed the goal line twice. McCoy, his surgically repaired left thumb in a splint, started terribly Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. But he turned into a slasher right before halftime and lifted the Bills to a 28-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The lead…

Bills

Both teams deserved to lose. That didn't stop Sunday's game in London from being a blast for those without a rooting interest. The Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars combined for 65 points. The underdog Jaguars, though, finished with more of them and defeated the Bills, 34-31, in high drama at Wembley Stadium. The Bills enter their bye with three losses in their pas…
