by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Bills still want to extend the contract of defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, according to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

Despite the one-game suspension levied by the league against Dareus on Thursday, the team still hopes to have an extension wrapped up before the start of training camp. 

2015 is scheduled to be the last season of Dareus' current contract. He'll make $8.06 million.

Bills DT Marcell Dareus suspended by NFL for banned substance
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Bills will be hosting Indianapolis in Week 1 of the 2015 season. But Buffalo defensive tackle Marcell Dareus will not be participating.

Dareus has been suspended by the league for the opener for violating its substance abuse policy, Fox Sports has reported. He released the following statement that confirmed it.

Last year, I made a mistake involving possession of a banned substance. The NFL's discipline for this conduct is part of the drug policy, and I apologize to my family, my teammates, the entire Bills organization and Bills fans that I will miss one game as a result of my mistake. I will work intensely that week and will be extremely happy to contribute to a win in Week 2 for the Bills.

The loss of Dareus is significant, at least for that game. He racked up 48 tackles and 10 sacks a year ago.

Bills would like 300 carries from LeSean McCoy
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

New Bills running back LeSean McCoy has led the NFL with 627 carries over the last two seasons. He shouldn't expect a reduction in his workload on his new team.

Bills' running backs coach Anthony Lynn said, "I’d love to see him get that many rushes. If he’s getting that many touches, that means that we’re winning ball games, we’re running the ball. We’re controlling time of possession. We’re setting up the play action. We’re doing some good things if he touches it that many times," per the Buffalo News.

"I think he’s got a lot of good years left in him at 27, going into his seventh season," he said. "I talk to the guys all the time about Curtis Martin. This guy led the league in rushing his ninth year."

Tyrod Taylor vying for Bills' starting QB job
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Bills are possibly a quarterback away from being a playoff contender. 

EJ Manuel has been lackluster thus far. Matt Cassel isn't getting any younger. This leaves a potential opportunity for Tyrod Taylor, who signed with Buffalo after spending his first four years as a backup with the Ravens, to be a dark horse to win the job. 

In an interview with Sporting News, Taylor said he's trying to drown out the local noise hyping him up to possibly take the position. 

"I knew coming in here how it was going to be," Taylor said. "My focus is to just prepare for these camps, learn the offense, study and play the best I can.’’

Taylor backed up Joe Flacco during his four years with the Ravens after being selected in the sixth round of the 2011 draft. Flacco proved to be a durable quarterback, which never gave Taylor an opportunity to start. 

Taylor said that Bills coach Rex Ryan told him there would be a quarterback competition during training camp, with the former Virginia Tech star ready for the challenge. 

“He was telling me how excited he was to have a chance to have me there and to have me compete for the job,’’ Taylor said. “Throughout the process, I thought this opportunity was the best for an open competition. That’s what I’d always felt throughout the offseason, and I had confidence in what I could do when I got that chance.’’

Report: Bills sign Ronald Darby to four-year, $4.6M contract
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Ronald Darby, who was the Bills' second-round pick in this year's draft, signed his rookie contract Tuesday. The Bills now have all six draft picks under contract.

“Athletic, fast, that’s why we drafted him,” defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman in describing Darby, per the team's official website. “Looks like a pretty good man-to-man cover guy from what we saw in the rookie minicamp, but he hasn’t gone up against the big time NFL receiver. Usually if you can cover, you can cover. It usually doesn’t matter who it is, but he’s been pretty impressive so far.”

Darby's contract is for four years and $4.6 million, a source told NFL.com.
