With Kyle Williams expected to miss to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, Bryant is in line for more playing time. Bryant logged 45 defensive plays Monday against the Patriots - logging two total tackles - and stands to play even more this week in Kansas City with Alex Carrington being needed to sub in for an injured Mario Williams. Bryant is still looking for his first sack of the season and the true IDP plays on this line are Marcell Dareus and Jerry Hughes. But we'll at least keep an eye on Bryant should the Bills remain down two of their defensive line starters, as the coaching staff seems happy with Bryant's play.
The Bills extended qualifying offers to exclusive rights free agents Chris Hogan, Justin Brown and Corbin Bryant on Thursday, the team announced. By extending the offers, the Bills ensure the players will return to the team in 2015 on one-year contracts.
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense. Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own. The Bills were able to intercept four passes, with three coming against starter Geno Smith in the first quarter and one coming from the arm of backup Michael Vick, who took over and played most of the game. Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort. The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.
Among the players inactive for the Bills Week 1 vs. New England are kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin), cornerback Stephon Gilmore (wrist), center Doug Legursky (knee), defensive tackle Jay Ross, tight end Chris Gragg and defensive tackle Corbin Bryant.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers added defensive lineman Corbin Bryant to the 53-man roster Tuesday.
