    08/16/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDDareus (suspension) has opted to leave the Bills in order to receive treatment. "After careful consideration of recent events within my life, I have made the decision to enter a rehabilitation facility," he said in a statement. "I feel this is the best decision for me, my family and my teammates as I move forward with my career. I appreciate the support of my teammates and the Bills organization through this process."

    Earlier this week, Dareus received his second suspension for a violation of the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Among other issues in his personal life, he'll extend his time away from the team with the aim of getting on the straight and narrow. If the defensive tackle indeed comes back to the Bills with a different state of mind, his pass-rushing prowess will be valuable, as he's notched 31.5 sacks in 78 career games.

    08/16/16LBManny LawsonUpper bodyPROBABLELawson (pectoral) may be facing a one-game suspension for a domestic violence incident, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reports.

    The nature of Lawson's offense is unclear, as violations of the NFL's domestic violence policy are supposed to result in a minimum suspension of six games. The veteran outside linebacker was just activated from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, after tearing his pectoral while lifting weights in the offseason. Between injuries and suspensions, the Buffalo front seven is already looking severely depleted.

    08/10/16LBReggie RaglandKneeOUTRagland's knee has too much swelling for a clear diagnosis to made right now regarding the injury he suffered during last Friday's practice, NFL.com reports.

    Ragland had an initial MRI that revealed what is believed to be a partial ACL tear, but was slated to get a second opinion Monday. However, since his knee is still pretty swollen, coach Rex Ryan could not give an update on his condition following practice. As a result, Ragland's situation will have to continue to be monitored, but Buffalo's signings of veteran linebackers Brandon Spikes and David Hawthorne on Sunday seem to indicate Ragland could be slated for an extended sideline stint.

    08/08/16DLKyle WilliamsKneePROBABLEWilliams, who was activated off the PUP list Monday, has been practicing all week.

    We'll see if Williams plays in the team's preseason opener Saturday, though there's a noticeable difference in the defense when Williams and Marcell Dareus are out there at the same time.

    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeeUndisclosedNFICoach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that Listenbee (hernia) is not close to returning to practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    It's highly doubtful the super-fast sixth-rounder will be in the lineup come Week 1, so he's looking like a prime PUP or practice squad candidate.

    08/16/16WRBrandon LaFellHandQUESTIONABLELaFell (hand) is expected to get heavy work in Sunday's preseason game against Jacksonville.

    LaFell needs to develop a rapport with quarterback Andy Dalton, and merely needs to get more reps period after missing the first two preseason games. He has fallen behind rookie Tyler Boyd in the battle to be the #2 wide receiver on the Bengals.

    08/15/16DLAndrew BillingsKneeDOUBTFULBillings had surgery to repair a torn mensicus Monday and has been ruled out indefinitely, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Billings was carted out of practice after injuring his knee last Wednesday, and is now in danger of losing his rookie season due to injury. After surprisingly sliding to the fourth round of the draft, Billings seemed a solid investment for the Bengals' defensive front, which is also without Brandon Thompson right now while he recovers from last season's torn ACL.

    08/02/16TETyler KroftKneeQUESTIONABLEKroft (knee) participated in some rehab exercises during Wednesday's practice, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Kroft originally pegged Week 1 as a target for his return, but given the nature of knee sprains, it wouldn't be surprising if he wasn't ready by then. As a rookie last season, Kroft helped fill the void during Tyler Eifert's absence. It remains to be seen what role, if any, Kroft will have in Cincinnati's offense once he's back to 100 percent on the gridiron.

    04/27/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDIn a media luncheon on Tuesday, head coach Marvin Lewis confirmed, "I am not going to play Vontaze Burfict in the preseason," Paul Dehner Jr. of Cincinnati.com reports.

    Burfict is suspended for the first three games of the regular season but is still eligible to play in the preseason by league rules. However, Lewis would rather play it safe and keep his star linebacker on the sidelines, keeping him safe from injuries and any on-the-field issue that could extend his suspension. Lewis said, "There's no reason for us to risk him getting hurt. It's hard because he's so competitive we have to continue to hold him back. One day he gets it the next day he wants to fight me on it. That's it. There's no reason to expose him to injury because he's too valuable." With Burfict out of the rotation, more reps will be allocated to young Bengals' linebackers.
