Position Listing
Dezmin Lewis
Lewis was signed to the practice squad Sunday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

We imagine the Bills were pretty happy that no one else picked up the upside wideout, as now they can continue working with him. The team only kept five receivers and numbers 3-4-5 aren't anything great to speak of, so if Lewis shines in practices there's a chance he could see regular season action at some point, especially if the Bills decide they need more size at wideout.

Cardale Jones
Jones (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

Jones will have to wait at least one more week before he suits up for his first NFL game, as he has been inactive the first three weeks of the season with a shoulder injury. EJ Manuel will again serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

Shoulder - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Max Valles
Guard/center Jon Feliciano, a fourth-rounder who is set to battle for a starting job, and sixth-round defensive end Max Valles have signed their rookie contracts, the Raiders have announced.

Valles recorded 78 tackles and 13 sacks over two seasons at Virginia.

Aaron Williams
Williams (ankle) practiced on a limited basis all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports.

There seems little chance Williams will miss this week's game against the team's biggest rival in an effort to try and avoid a 1-3 start. Williams had one pass defensed and a fumble recovery -- one in which he scored his first NFL touchdown -- in the Week 3 upset over the Cardinals. However, Corey Graham remains the more consistent play from an IDP perspective.

Ankle - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Garrison Sanborn
The Bills have ruled out wide receivers Marcus Easley (knee) and Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) for their Week 7 battle against the visiting Vikings. Also out is linebacker Ty Powell (ankle).

The team is otherwise healthy - the rest of those on its injury report Friday are probable. They are long snapper Garrison Sanborn (knee), safeties Aaron Williams (wrist/neck) and Da'Norris Searcy (knee), linebacker Brandon Spikes (ribs) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee).

Marcell Dareus
While Dareus will return from suspension following this weekend's game against the Patriots, he likely won't be able to play a full workload Week 5 against the Rams, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said general manager Doug Whaley, "There is no conditioning or workout that can get you in total football shape. He's been working out with weights and aerobically during his suspension. I assume we'll get him in (the lineup) right away, but he'll rotate otherwise he'll be gassed ... it's going to take him a game or two to get in football shape where he can play a full game."

Dareus is certainly worth a look in IDP formats where he was cast aside due to his four-game suspension, though you might have to be willing to stash him on the bench for more than just this week. That said, he's one of the league's better defensive tackles when it comes to accruing stats, plus he has quite a bit to prove after the talented lineman let his teammates down yet again.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Los Angeles
Reggie Ragland
Ragland (knee) was placed on the Bills' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

The 2016 second-rounder suffered a torn ACL during the beginning of training camp. To say the least, his loss won't go unnoticed in 2016; Ragland was a projected starter at linebacker before going down.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Brandon Spikes
Spikes left practice early Tuesday with an undisclosed injury and did not return, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

Spikes and the Bills begin their regular season Sept. 11 in Baltimore, but the linebackers' status could be up in the air if the injury turns out to be serious. As for now, the severity of Spikes' injury is unclear and more information should be available within the coming days.

Greg Salas
Salas (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in New England.

With Sammy Watkins (foot) also absent, Marquise Goodwin will likely get the start across from Robert Woods, with Walter Powell serving as the No. 3 wideout. The Bills will try to win on the legs of LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor.

Groin - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 4 at New England
Robert Blanton
Blanton signed with the Bills on Friday.

Blanton joins the Bills after playing in all 16 games for the Vikings last season, when he compiled 34 tackles. However, that came after Blanton posted 106 tackles in 2014, so although he'll likely be a second-stringer in Buffalo, the veteran safety will aim for a bounce back season with his new team.

IK Enemkpali
Enemkpali (knee) was designated as waived/injured by the Bills on Monday, ESPN.com reports.

Enemkpali tore his right ACL in Buffalo's preseason opener versus the Colts. Now, the Bills have lost two key linebackers to torn ACLs, the other being rookie Reggie Ragland, and are still without their first-round pick, LB Shaq Lawson. If Enemkpali clears waivers, he'll likely be placed on the Bills' injured reserve list.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Ramon Humber
Humber signed with the Bills on Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

One day after being released by New England, the 29-year-old Humber latched on with a team that has far inferior depth at linebacker. He'll still have to battle for a spot on the 53-man roster prior to Saturday's final cut-downs.

Marquise Goodwin
With Sammy Watkins (foot) and Greg Salas (groin) ruled out for Sunday's game at New England, Goodwin is expected to start again along with Robert Woods.

That didn't go so well last week when Goodwin had the same exact situation yet caught only one ball for six yards, but at least he'll be on the field whenever the offense has the ball. Goodwin's only value lies in the occasional home run throw, but perhaps with the Patriots concentrating on LeSean McCoy and Woods, the speedy Goodwin can sneak one of those in, especially if the Bills start chucking while behind.

Jerel Worthy
Worthy (knee) has been listed as active for Thursday's matchup with the Jets.

Worthy was only able to participate in practice once this past week, and he was limited at that. He's one of Buffalo's primary backups at defensive end and he recorded two tackles in the Bills' Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

Preston Brown
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.

Gerald Christian
The Cardinals announced on Monday that they have signed third-round draft pick David Johnson and seventh-round selection Gerald Christian .

Johnson was able to gain recognition for his on-field talents despite playing college football at Northern Iowa. He was a first-team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference in 2013 and 2014 while running for back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. 

Christian was a third-team all-ACC tight end at Louisvile in 2014. 

Matt Hazel
Hazel was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

A 2014 sixth-round selection, Hazel was mostly a gameday inactive through his first two years in the league. With Branden Shippen also waived Saturday, it appears Griff Whalen and/or Rashawn Scott will fill out the No. 5/6 spots on the Miami depth chart at wide receiver.

Jordan Gay
Gay was released by the Bills on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the team's official website reports.

Gay had merely been working as a kickoff specialist, and the Bills will seemingly now let Dan Carpenter handle those duties.

Dan Carpenter
Carpenter made both of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's upset over the Cardinals -- a 19-yarder and a 45-yarder -- but missed one of four extra-point attempts.

The extra-point attempts were a big issue last season, when six misses almost cost Carpenter his job. However, Sunday's miss was his first of the season, and he's been true on eight others. With the Bills winning big, Carpenter's job seems fairly secure for the time being; however, his 17 points on the season put him just tied for 21st among the league's kickers.

Marcus Easley
Easley, still recovering from major knee surgery, was placed on the regular season PUP on Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Easley will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. He's close to game action again, but the Bills have such a logjam at wide receiver that at some point they'll need to decide whether Easley's special teams acumen has more value than another wideout's offensive skills.

Kneecap - Physically Unable to Perform
Deandre Coleman
The Dolphins listed the following players as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Jets: Rishard Matthews, Walt Aikens, Dallas Thomas, Matt Hazel, LaMichael James, Deandre Coleman and Sam Brenner.
William Poehls
The Titans dumped 20 players Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Tennessee cut the following players: T Jeff Adams, CB Ri'Shard Anderson, RB Antonio Andrews, DL Chigbo Anunoby, K Maikon Bonani, CB Tommie Campbell, TE Chase Coffman, LB Brandon Copeland, QB Dominique Davis, DE Marcus Dixon, LB Moise Fokou, WR Marc Mariani, G Justin McCray, FB Collin Mooney, OL Eric Olsen, T William Poehls, WR Rico Richardson, WR Brian Robiskie, TE Jason Schepler and CB Winston Wright.
Blake Annen
Annen (neck) has passed through waivers and has landed on the Bills' injured reserve list, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

Annen had a shot at the final tight end spot, but both the injury and a late surge by Nick O'Leary ended up costing him.

Neck - Injured Reserve
Ronald Darby
Darby (hamstring) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

Darby was out of commission in Week 3 but participated in every practice this week. He's expected to be ready by Sunday, but his status will be confirmed prior to kickoff nonetheless.

Hamstring - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Eric Wood
The Bills starting offensive line will see its first playing time together in a game Sunday against the Bears, with Cordy Glenn, Chris Williams, Eric Wood, Erik Pears and Seantrel Henderson lining up left to right, the Buffalo News reports.

The Bills are walking into a hostile environment in Chicago, and the fact that the starting five on the offensive line didn't see any time together could make things difficult on running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson if the linemen suffer a communications breakdown. It also bodes well for the Chicago defense, providing an increased opportunity that a pass rusher breaks through unblocked on a missed assignment.

Marquis Lucas
Ankle - Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Tyrod Taylor
Taylor has a new offensive coordinator in Anthony Lynn after the Bills fired Greg Roman on Friday. One of Lynn's expectations could be to open up the passing game a bit more. Said coach Rex Ryan, "I want to be multiple. I want to be able to throw the football ... I do want to be able to run the football on a consistent basis. I want to be multiple in the running game, but I also want to be able to use the entire arsenal. The quick game, the intermediate game and the deep passing game."

It's hard to teach an old dog like Ryan new tricks, but the Bills under Roman were one of the heaviest run-based offenses in the league. Facing an 0-2 start with little to lose and with part of Roman's firing being based on an inability to get Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Charles Clay the ball more often, we could see the Bills start to open it up a bit more. Coupled with Taylor's excellent running ability, that could lead to good things. Still, this team is off to a stinky start and hasn't been able to move the ball other than some big plays, so don't be expecting the Dan Fouts Chargers all of a sudden. Also keep in mind Ryan is still running the show and Lynn is a former running back and running backs coach, so that run-centered approach probably isn't going away, either.

Kolby Listenbee
Listenbee, still recovering from double hernia surgery, was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Listenbee will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. The Bills have a major logjam at wide receiver and with some tough roster decisions to make may just stash the speedy Listenbee away for the bulk of the season, then work on his upside once he's fully healthy and more prepared for action.

Pelvis - Out for Week 4 at New England
Phillip Thomas
The Dolphins have signed strong safety and Redskins castoff Phillip Thomas.

Thomas was drafted in the fourth round by Washington in 2013, but proved disappointing after losing his rookie season to a foot injury. He played in eight games a year ago and contributed to 27 tackles.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Brandon Tate
Tate took all five kickoff returns for an average of 25 yards and the lone punt return (eight yards) in the Week 2 loss to the Jets.

Tate was signed after being cut by the Bengals and has immediately become the main return man, quickly passing Reggie Bush, who surprisingly has had almost no role on offense or special teams through the first two game. Tate looked good in the Jets game, so expect this role to continue for the foreseeable future, even though he remains last on the depth chart at receiver.

Carlos Fields
The Giants signed cornerback Victor Hampton and linebacker Carlos Fields to the practice squad Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.
Stephon Gilmore
Despite his quest for a new long-term contract, Gilmore has shown up for the start of training camp, The Buffalo News reports. "I looked at every situation, but it was a smart thing for me to come here and be with my teammates, work on my game, do whatever I can to improve myself individually and as a team," said Gilmore on Friday.

Gilmore is one of the league's top corners, but he's seeking Josh Norman-type money and the Bills are reluctant to give him that much, especially with a year left on his rookie deal. The Bills have a number of other issues entering camp between some surprise injuries and surprise off-field activity, so it's good that Rex Ryan's 1-on-1 cornerback stud is on board and healthy again, even as negotiations limp along.

Jim Dray
Dray (ankle) has been listed as active for Thursday's Week 2 contest against the Jets.

Dray was limited in practice during the week, which put his status into question for the Bills' Thursday night game. Though he's active, he's still the second option at tight end to Charles Clay and likely won't have much fantasy value.

Bryson Albright
Albright was released Thursday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

As much as Rex Ryan loved this undrafted free agent from Miami of Ohio, the writing was on the wall when the Bills elevated linebacker Lerentee McCray ahead of Albright for Week 1. We'll see if the Bills try to move "Big Bird," as Ryan calls him, to the practice squad or find a spot on the team again when they don't need as many reserve offensive linemen.

Kyle Williams
Williams, 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.

Jerry Hughes
Hughes logged six tackles - including two sacks - during Buffalo's Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

No one has been able to slow down Hughes throughout training camp and he carried that right over into the regular season. Coach Rex Ryan keeps singing his praises and apparently Hughes likes his new role as more of a linebacker in the team's 3-4 defense. He's also going to see more mismatches when the team has him rush at the opponent's right side of the line. A double-digit sack season appears to be in the cards for Hughes.

Duke Williams
Williams ended up starting Sunday's game at strong safety over Aaron Williams, but in the end only saw 21 defensive snaps, BuffaloBills.com reports. Duke Williams logged just one tackle and no other stats.

Aaron Williams is the starter and his snap could will be ramped up as the season progresses as he gets more comfortable following offseason neck surgery, but at least the Bills finally have more confidence in Duke after three seasons of ups and downs. If anything ever happened to Aaron Williams or free safety Corey Graham, Duke might end up being worthy of IDP consideration.

Mike Gillislee
Gillislee carried the ball three times for 20 yards during Sunday's win over Arizona, while seeing the field for 10 of the team's 64 offensive snaps.

He looked good on his runs even though he lost he handle on one where the Bills were fortunate enough to recover. Gillislee only saw seven snaps combined in the first two games, so this is a good development as he cements his No. 2 standing behind LeSean McCoy after Anthony Lynn took over the offensive coordinator duties a week ago. Meanwhile, Reggie Bush didn't even see an offensive play, though rookie Jonathan Williams was on the field for six offensive snaps (three carries for two yards).

Lerentee McCray
McCray was traded from the Packers to the Bills on Tuesday in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice in 2018, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Injuries have depleted the Buffalo linebackers corps and McCray knows how to play the scheme the Bills run, so he's a good add for some depth.

Sammy Watkins
Watkins (foot) isn't scheduled for surgery, but he'll visit with Dr. Robert Anderson to be sure, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Watkins was placed on injured reserve Friday, officially ruling him out for at least the next eight weeks. He didn't have any structural damage at last check, but the pain in his surgically-repaired foot has simply refused to subside. Assuming no structural damage is found, he'll likely spend the next eight weeks resting, with the hope that his foot will feel better if he uses it as little as possible. If he does end up needing some kind of procedure, it would likely spell the end of his season.

Foot - Injured Reserve
James Wilder Jr.
Wilder (head) has passed through waivers and has landed on the Bills' injured reserve list, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

Perhaps he'll get a chance to make an NFL roster at some other time, but Buffalo had a logjam at running back all preseason and Wilder didn't do enough to get over the hump. His injury in the last preseason game didn't help either.

Concussion - Injured Reserve
Jonathan Dowling
Dowling (knee) was waived/injured by the Bills on Tuesday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Dowling suffered a torn ACL during the Bills' preseason loss to the Redskins on Friday. He's a candidate to revert to the team's injured reserve list, provided he clears waivers.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Kevin Reddick
Reddick, who suffered a sprained MCL in practice Friday, was waived/injured by the Bills on Sunday.

The Bills didn't have much choice here with several other linebackers injured and reinforcements needed. If Reddick clears injury waivers, the Bills can then either place the him on IR or agree to an injury settlement with him.

Knee - Questionable for Week 4 at New England
LeSean McCoy
McCoy totaled 110 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries and secured three of four targets for six yards in Sunday's 33-18 victory over the Cardinals.

The veteran back turned in a throwback performance, his best of the young season by far. McCoy had trudged through a pair of outings over the first two weeks where he'd averaged less than four yards per carry, but exploded for a 6.5 YPC against a normally stingy Cardinals front. The former Pittsburgh Panther now has three touchdowns on the ground over the first three games and has encouragingly remained involved in the passing game, despite an absence of big plays through the air to date. He'll look to keep the momentum going when he and the Bills travel to Foxboro to tangle with the Patriots in Week 4.

Jonathan Williams
Williams is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Jets.

The rookie may not see his first NFL opportunity until injury strikes one of LeSean McCoy, Mike Gillislee, or Reggie Bush, all veterans and all ahead of the rookie Williams on the depth chart.

Corbin Bryant
Bryant is expected to start at nose tackle following the four-game suspension to Marcell Dareus, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Jerel Worthy might also get some time in certain packages, but Bryant did a nice job for the Bills last season when Kyle Williams was injured, and while he's not ideal for the team's switch to a more dedicated 3-4 defense, he does have the ability to accrue tackles for an interior lineman if you can do without the sacks. Last season, Bryant logged 45 stops while playing only 58 percent of the defensive snaps.

Leger Douzable
The Jets have re-signed defensive end Leger Douzable, according to NJ.com. Douzable totaled 25 tackles in 2014 with 2 1/2 sacks as a backup to Muhammad Wilkerson. The details of the agreement were not immediately known. He earned $1 million on a one-year contract in 2014.
Nick O'Leary
O'Leary caught six of eight targets for 63 yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the Lions.

O'Leary had a fairly disappointing summer, but has seemed to make a late push capped by a big final audition. If the Bills keep three tight ends, it's gonna be O'Leary or Blake Annen - who injured his neck Thursday - that makes the final roster.

Walt Powell
Powell is inactive for Sunday's game in Baltimore.

Powell was kept on the final roster because he rallied late and due to his potential return skills, but the Bills have also added Reggie Bush and Brandon Tate late in the game, so Powell's chances to make a big play will be put on hold for at least one more week.

Marcus Roberson
The Rams designated the following players as inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants: offensive lineman Brandon Washington, tight end Alex Bayer, defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks, defensive lineman Alex Carrington, cornerback Marcus Roberson, tight end Justice Cunningham and offensive lineman Barrett Jones.
Chris Gragg
Gragg, who suffered a torn ACL during Friday's preseason loss at Washington, was waived/injured Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

The Bills can place Gragg on IR if he passes through waivers, which we assume they might be up for since he was coming on strong before the nasty injury.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Cyrus Kouandjio
Bills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was beaten out for a starting spot last season by Seantrel Henderson. He is poised to turn the tables this year, per the team website.

Kouandijo is currently ahead of his fellow 2014 draftee. He has improved markedly since the end of his rookie campaign, according to Rex Ryan.

"I think the work that Cyrus has done overall in the offseason probably puts him ahead right now," Ryan said. "But again, the race isn't over by a long shot, so we'll see."

Offensive line coach Aaron Kromer concurs, but he also cautions that it's early in the process. "He's been working really hard at learning the techniques and learning the plays," he said. "When we got pads on that's when things are really going to show up for the line."

That Henderson beat out Kouandjio last season was a surprise. The former was taken in the seventh round while the latter was selected five rounds earlier.

Ankle - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 4 at New England
Jerome Felton
Felton, cut last week by the Bills, is about to be re-signed by the team, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Bills kept a younger (and cheaper) Glenn Gronkowski at fullback over Felton, but the team's run game struggled against the Ravens on Sunday and it looks like they want to bring Felton's veteran skills back to try and open up some more holes this week against the Jets. If the fullback position wasn't avoided by so many teams these days, a guy with Felton's football skills probably would have been snapped up by now, so the Bills should consider themselves lucky they're getting their guy back.

Charles Clay
Clay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

With wideouts Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas both out this week, Clay could be a key cog in the Bills' Week 4 passing attack, assuming he suits up Sunday, which we expect he will. That said, the tight end's quiet effort this past week against the Cardinals (zero catches on two targets over 53 snaps) makes him a roll of the dice in fantasy lineups this weekend.

Knee - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Adolphus Washington
Washington has picked up a modest three tackles through two games and is still looking for his first NFL sack. He's played just 27 percent of the team's defensive snaps.

The Bills seem pretty high on their third-round pick from Ohio State -- and they might have to be considering their first two picks went down with lengthy injuries -- but apparently they don't trust him fully yet either. While Washington is considered a starter, backups like Leger Double are seeing more time on the field. You can safely avoid Washington for now -- if you're looking for a Bills defensive lineman to own, veteran Kyle Williams is more productive, and Marcell Dareus is coming off suspension in Week 5.

Shaq Lawson
While Lawson continues to recover well from his May shoulder surgery, there's still no timetable for his return, The Buffalo News reports. "We're definitely optimistic," said coach Rex Ryan. "He's doing a great job. He's working extremely hard, so we're confident that at some point, we feel great that he will be back and contributing at some point during the year."

Lawson may become a good IDP candidate down the road, but his injury set him back too far this year and he shouldn't be on your radar yet, given the time he'll miss. The best the Bills can seemingly hope for is that he misses a handful of games and then indoctrinates himself into the lineup quickly, as the team already has a number of injury issues on defense.

Shoulder - Physically Unable to Perform
Nickell Robey
Robey-Coleman remains sidelined with a knee injury but expects to be back for Week 1 of the regular season, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Yeah, give me, I feel like another week, two weeks I will be ready," said Robey-Coleman. "I am doing good. I did a lot of running today, side to side movement and things like that and it felt real good on my joints, and felt good on my body."

Rookie Kevon Seymour is thought to be pushing Robey-Coleman for the top nickel job, but he's also injured. Assuming Robey-Coleman can in fact suit up for Week 1, we think he'll still be the coach's choice. Seymour may push him all season, however.

Seantrel Henderson
The Bills starting offensive line will see its first playing time together in a game Sunday against the Bears, with Cordy Glenn, Chris Williams, Eric Wood, Erik Pears and Seantrel Henderson lining up left to right, the Buffalo News reports.

The Bills are walking into a hostile environment in Chicago, and the fact that the starting five on the offensive line didn't see any time together could make things difficult on running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson if the linemen suffer a communications breakdown. It also bodes well for the Chicago defense, providing an increased opportunity that a pass rusher breaks through unblocked on a missed assignment.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Los Angeles
Richie Incognito
Bills coach Rex Ryan has been happy with what he's seen from offensive lineman Richie Incognito, so much so that he has named the veteran the starter at left guard, per the Associated Press

Incognito, who saw his career halted due to his role in a bullying scandal while a member of the Dolphins, signed with the Bills in February for a second chance.

"One thing's for sure, Richie's a starter," Ryan said. "He looks about as good as any of them. He really does."

Colton Schmidt
The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday.

The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed.

The team placed running back Marcus Lattimore, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List and linebacker NaVorro Bowman, tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.

Cordy Glenn
Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn has a knee injury and will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots. Glenn injured his knee early in the fourth quarter and was able to limp off the field. 

Ankle - Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Damian Parms
No Updates
Kevon Seymour
Seymour (hamstring) is active for Buffalo's Week 2 game against the Jets.

Seymour missed the Bills' Week 1 tilt and was limited in practice this past week, but the backup corner will make his season debut Thursday. As a backup corner he'll likely see his number called primarily in passing situations and special teams.

Corey White
White, stepping in for an injured Ronald Darby, started at cornerback and logged nine tackles, a pass defensed, and an interception during Sunday's upset win over the Cardinals.

White and Stephon Gilmore were all over the field vs. Carson Palmer and his team's high-powered passing attack following the Jets' shredding of the Buffalo secondary one game prior. White saw the field for 81 of 82 defensive snaps, and could be in line for a similar workload if Darby (hamstring) can't improve enough for this week's game at New England.

Ryan Groy
The Bears have traded offensive guard Ryan Groy to the Patriots, sources told NFL Network.

Groy, a two-year veteran, appeared in four games for Chicago last season.

Colt Anderson
Anderson (foot) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

Anderson was limited in practice throughout the week. He serves as depth in the Bills' secondary and his absence shouldn't have a significant impact on the outcome of the game if he's ultimately ruled out.

Foot - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Jordan Mills
The Cowboys claimed right tackle Jordan Mills off waivers from the Bears on Monday. To clear a roster spot, linebacker Jasper Brinkley was waived.
Corey Graham
Graham was all over the field during Sunday's win against the Cardinals, posting four tackles, a sack, three passes defensed, and an interception.

Graham hasn't missed a defensive snap this season. While his tackle totals -- 11 through three games -- are disappointing, Sunday's game shows just what he can do. While he sits just tied for 21st among safeties in standard IDP scoring, he figures to keep working his way up in the coming weeks, perhaps starting this week against the Patriots, a team that always seems to keep the Buffalo defense on the field.

Robert Woods
Woods secured six of eight targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 33-18 victory over the Cardinals.

With Sammy Watkins (foot) sidelined, Woods stepped up to serve as Tyrod Taylor's top target in a conservative air attack. The four-year pro managed a game-long 24-yard reception and accounted for nearly half of Tyrod Taylor's 119 yards on the afternoon. Woods could once again see extended opportunity if Watkins is unable to suit up for a Week 4 tilt versus the Patriots.

John Miller
Bills rookie guard John Miller left practice early on Saturday after suffering a bruised ankle. 

"Nothing serious at all," coach Rex Ryan said, per the Buffalo News. "He'll probably be a day, maybe two days max."

Miller was a third-round draft pick out of Georgia. 

Zach Brown
Brown had 14 tackles -- including one for a loss -- during Thursday's loss to the Jets.

Surprisingly, that total didn't lead the Bills, as Preston Brown put up 16. Zach Brown was on the field for all 75 defensive snaps, and played 60 of 68 in the first game, meaning he's pretty much a three-down guy. That could spell sneaky IDP value, considering the Bills might be regularly playing from behind this season, which often means opponents start running the ball up the middle of the field. Brown has two 90-plus tackle seasons on his resume, and he's already up to 22 though the first two games.

Jonathan Meeks
Rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been deemed probable by the Bills for the Sunday game against San Diego. He has practiced in full all week with a rib injury.

Also probable are defensive tackle Stefan Charles (hip), tight end Lee Smith (toe), guard Chris Williams (back) and wide receiver Robert Woods (ankle).

Linebacker Randell Johnson (knee) and safety Jonathan Meeks (neck) have been ruled out while linebacker Keith Rivers (groin) has been deemed doubtful.

Foot - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 4 at New England
Lorenzo Alexander
With Manny Lawson getting cut this weekend, Alexander is expected to start at outside linebacker opposite Jerry Hughes, The Buffalo News reports. Said coach Rex Ryan, "At no point did I think his role would be a starter for us, but he earned that right and I think that's where he is. Obviously when Shaq Lawson comes back, that role may be a lot different, but I can tell you this right now - he earned it. You guys know it. I know it. You put the tape on, all he did is make plays, show up. He's smart and I think it's more about him than anything else."

Shaq Lawson could be back as soon as Week 7, but for now the Bills don't have many other choices to the point where Alexander could end up on the field most of the time. He's entering his 12th season so the upside is minimal, but there are some big names on this defense that will draw more attention, so Alexander could start picking up a modest amount of stats.

Patrick Lewis
The Seahawks worked in a new first-team center on Tuesday and it wasn't the one projected to fill Max Unger's vacant spot.

According to ESPN.com, Lemuel Jeanpierre worked with the first team during Tuesday's OTA practice. Patrick Lewis, who many projected to be the front-runner for the job, worked in as Jeanpierre's backup.

After practice, coach Pete Carroll said Jeanpierre earned the opportunity to begin OTAs as the first-team center.

Jeanpierre has been with the Seahawks since 2011 and Lewis joined the squad a year ago. Jeanpierre has 11 career starts and Lewis has four, all of which happened with Seattle in 2014.  

Knee - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 4 at New England
EJ Manuel
Coach Rex Ryan was pleased with Manuel's performance during Friday's preseason loss to Washington, where the fourth-year quarterback saw extensive action. "But I really liked the way he played. I love the way he competes," said Ryan. "He's got a great look in his face. He loves competing. You know what? Sometimes quarterbacks take a little longer to develop. I think this is the best EJ Manuel I've seen."

Manuel is locked in as the No. 2 quarterback, but maybe the Bills won't be in as rough shape as they were last season when Tyrod Taylor couldn't play, should the need arise again. And to his credit, Manuel took last year's demotion and struggles in stride and with class and has seemingly worked harder to revive his career, one that has never come close to living up to Manuel's first-round status.

Reggie Bush
Bush was on the field for just two offensive snaps during Thursday's loss to the Jets. He did not have a carry or a catch.

Perhaps even more surprisingly, both the punt and kickoff return duties went to Brandon Tate, who did a good job and may suppress Bush's expected major role on special teams. The Bills did fire offensive coordinator Greg Roman on Friday, so we'll see if new OC Anthony Lynn decides to get the backups on the field a bit more. As of now, Bush is the No. 3 running back in Buffalo and doesn't appear to be the main return man, so his fantasy value is pretty much nothing.

Gabe Ikard
According to the Tennessean, the following players will not suit up for the Titans Saturday night against the Falcons in Atlanta: center Chris Spencer, center Gabe Ikard, quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, and defensive lineman Antonio Johnson and Mike Martin.
