Bills' Kolby Listenbee: Ready to show off his speed
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Listenbee, the team's sixth-round pick in April who missed most of the team's spring work due to pelvic inflammation following double sports hernia surgery in March, is hoping to be cleared for upcoming training camp practices, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Rehab is going pretty good," said the rookie. "We're playing it by ear so every day is a different day. Hopefully I get better soon and I can practice the first day, but we'll see how it goes."

Listenbee is an absolute burner, but given the team's plethora of wideouts in camp, he's still going to need to make a good impression on coach Rex Ryan in order to land a spot on the team.

Bills' Preston Brown: Bigger things in store?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The team expects Brown to be a main defensive playmaker this season as the staring middle linebacker who should see the field almost every play, BuffaloBills.com reports. "This Preston Brown is going to be a star," new defensive assistant Rob Ryan said. "He's been fantastic. He's a vocal guy, he's extremely smart. He knows the defense. He knows the ins and outs now, so he's really going to grow in this system."

The Bills expect to bounce back from a disappointing season on defense - Brown, like many of his teammates struggled with Rex Ryan's scheme - now that everyone has a better understanding of the system and players won't be pulling in so many different directions. Brown actually had 120 tackles last season after putting up 109 as a rookie, so if he can "get it" just a little more after being out of position on occasion at times last season, it could make for a very nice IDP season.

Bills' Marcus Easley: End of a long road?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Easley, who shattered his knee cap in three places during Week 16, is mostly recovered and is hoping to be on the field for at least part of training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Based on the original prognosis they said six to nine months, so we're getting close to that point," said Easley. "So it'll be interesting to see where I stand in a couple of weeks. I feel that will determine where things go."

As bad as the injury was, doctors are saying Easley's repaired knee is structurally sound. He's arguably the team's best special teams player, so if he can prove just a hint of receiving value in camp he's got a shot to land the final receiver spot. We'll note that the team will have a slew of candidates in camp, however.

Bills' Sammy Watkins: Feeling good, unsure of timetable
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

While Watkins (foot) says he's "feeling great," he's still unsure as to when he'll be able to return to the practice field, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. "I don't know how much I'm gonna be doing or when I'm gonna be on the field, but I'm definitely going to be active and engaged," Watkins said Tuesday. "I don't know what the schedule is like with me being on the field competing-wise, but I'm right where I need to be at -- feeling good, healthy. Nothing is bothering me. Just really prepare for whatever they do."

No one around the team expects Watkins to come in at 100 percent when camp opens up in a couple of weeks, but it sounds like so far, so good on the healing front. He'll be such a high pick in leagues, though, that his status should be monitored regularly during the end of the summer so it's known if the high-upside (yet injury-prone) third-year wideout is full-go for Week 1. With the Bills' running back situation all of a sudden being a question mark, you can bet the team would love to see much of the offense flow through Watkins and Tyrod Taylor.

Bills' Karlos Williams: Suspended four games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, NFL.com reports.

Williams' suspension comes just one day after fellow Bills running back Jonathan Williams was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. Additionally, Williams' poor conditioning was called out by coach Rex Ryan last month, so his suspension only compounds an unimpressive first NFL offseason. After posting 5.6 yards per carry and scoring nine touchdowns in 11 games as a rookie, Williams now won't be eligible to play until Week 5 against the Rams. Until then, Mike Gillislee and, pending discipline, the aforementioned Williams will have added opportunities to earn valuable touches behind starter LeSean McCoy (ankle).
