Bills' Charles Clay: Puts minor injury past him
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clay, who sat out last week's OTA sessions with a minor undisclosed injury, will be on the field this week, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Clay is the clear-cut tight end and will see the field for almost every snap if healthy this season. His upside is limited based on the Bills' propensity to run the ball, but he'd probably be worth a good look if Sammy Watkins' injury issues persist into the regular season, or if the team started making Clay more of a red-zone threat.

Bills' Charles Clay: Misses Tuesday practice with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Clay (back) missed Tuesday's OTA practice due to an unspecified health issue, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.

Clay missed the final three games of last season with a back injury after dealing with neck, calf and knee issues earlier in the year. He played at least 13 games in each of his first five NFL seasons, but the persistent issues with one of his knees has led to questions about his long-term durability. If healthy, the 27-year-old Clay figures to be a key part of the Buffalo passing game, particularly if Sammy Watkins (foot) misses any time. There's been no indication that Clay's current injury is anything serious.

Bills' Charles Clay: Can he pick up sluggish 2015 stats?
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman expects Clay (back) to be more productive this season as quarterback Tyrod Taylor continues to develop, The Buffalo News reports.

Working against this theory is that the Bills are a run-based team, while Clay has never had more than six touchdowns or 759 receiving yards in a season. On the positive side, Roman is known for having productive tight ends, and Clay certainly has the skill set to thrive in this system. The thought also says that Clay was open quite a bit last season, but a green Taylor either didn't notice or was afraid to chuck it over the middle. The Bills plan to have Taylor do that more this season. Finally, the team's only real receiving threat, Sammy Watkins, is far from a picture of model health.

Bills' Charles Clay: Helps Bills with salary cap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charles Clay (back) has restructured his contract, Buffalo Buffalo Bills .com reports.

It doesn't sound like this did much if anything to Clay's total pay, but the offseason math with help the cap-crunched Bills try to re-sign some of their free agents, namely Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito. We haven't heard much about Clay's back injury either after it forced him to miss the final three games, but it didn't sound like anything serious at the time and the Bills were long out of the playoffs. He'll try to build on his 51/528/3 line now that he has a year of familiarity with Tyrod Taylor and offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Bills' Charles Clay: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charles Clay (back) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Coach Rex Ryan was pessimistic when discussing a possible Week 17 return for Clay on Monday, but this move officially ends the tight end's 2015 campaign. While Clay seemed to be developing a strong rapport with quarterback Tyrod Taylor early on, he did little down the stretch, catching just one touchdown and averaging 38.4 yards in his final 10 games.
