Position Listing
Lee Smith
News
Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught three passes for a team-high 157 yards and one touchdown while receiving six targets in his team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8.

Watkins could have had two touchdowns on the day, but he appeared to slow down while close to the end zone on a huge play and was caught from behind on what would have been an 89-yard score. Still, even though quarterback Kyle Orton completed just 10 passes in the blowout win, Watkins was able to deliver a big line on the strength of the 84-yard play and a 61-yard fourth-quarter catch. He's up to 38 receptions, 590 yards and five touchdowns in eight games.

Several other Bills were able to reach paydirt as well in the win, with Robert Woods catching three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, tight end Scott Chandler scoring a 12-yard touchdown on his only reception and tight end Lee Smith managing two catches for five yards and a score.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Da'Norris Searcy
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

The Bills were able to intercept four passes, with three coming against starter Geno Smith in the first quarter and one coming from the arm of backup Michael Vick, who took over and played most of the game. Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Larry Dean
News
The Bills signed former Vikings linebacker Larry Dean and placed safety Jonathan Meeks (neck) on injured reserve, reports the Buffalo News.
Aaron Williams
News
Barring any setbacks over the weekend, Bills defensive back Aaron Williams is expected to play Week 8 against the Jets at MetLife Stadium, according to WGR. Williams was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a neck injury.
Garrison Sanborn
News
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
News
Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus went for X-rays following Sunday's game against the Patriots. He hurt his hand late in the game.
Chris Hairston
News
The Bills put right tackle Chris Hairston on the reserve/Non-Football Illness list.

Anthony Dixon
News
In their first game without injured running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, the Bills gave Anthony Dixon a lot more work than Bryce Brown. Dixon played 41 of 55 snaps while Brown played 14 snaps, reports ESPN.com.

Coach Doug Marrone told the website that Brown would have played more if the Bills had used their spread attack. Buffalo led throughout and was in "more of a ground-and-pound mode," which favored the bruising Dixon, the report said.

Brandon Spikes
News
As expected, the Bills have officially ruled Fred Jackson (groin) and Ty Powell (ankle) out for Week 8 against the Jets, the team announced.

Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) was the only player listed as doubtful on the final injury report on Friday. Marcus Easley (knee) and Aaron Williams (neck) were labeled as questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ron Brooks (groin), Brandon Spikes (ribs), Sammy Watkins (groin) and Mario Williams (thumb) were all deemed probable.

Ross Cockrell
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Jets: running back Fred Jackson (groin), wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and Marcus Easley (knee), linebacker Ty Powell (ankle), cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Phillip Tanner and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson and Powell were both already ruled out for the game, while Goodwin was doubtful to play. Easley is inactive after being listed as questionable, but the team's other questionable player, safety Aaron Williams (neck), is active for the game. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (groin), defensive end Mario Williams (thumb) and cornerback Ron Brooks (groin) are also active after being listed as probable to play against the Jets.

Scott Chandler
News
Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught three passes for a team-high 157 yards and one touchdown while receiving six targets in his team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8.

Watkins could have had two touchdowns on the day, but he appeared to slow down while close to the end zone on a huge play and was caught from behind on what would have been an 89-yard score. Still, even though quarterback Kyle Orton completed just 10 passes in the blowout win, Watkins was able to deliver a big line on the strength of the 84-yard play and a 61-yard fourth-quarter catch.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Phillip Tanner
News
Faced with limited depth in the backfield, the Bills are signing former Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner, reports the National Football Post.
Kraig Urbik
News
The Bills announced that running back Anthony Dixon will get the start in Sunday's battle with the Jets.

The team lost its top two running backs in Week 7 and turned to Dixon to finish the game. He'll draw the first snap against the Jets but should rotate with Bryce Brown, with the team leaning on whomever performs best. The Bills also looked to boost the offense line by inserting interior lineman Kraig Urbik into the starting lineup at left guard.

Marquise Goodwin
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Jets: running back Fred Jackson (groin), wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and Marcus Easley (knee), linebacker Ty Powell (ankle), cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Phillip Tanner and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson and Powell were both already ruled out for the game, while Goodwin was doubtful to play. Easley is inactive after being listed as questionable, but the team's other questionable player, safety Aaron Williams (neck), is active for the game. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (groin), defensive end Mario Williams (thumb) and cornerback Ron Brooks (groin) are also active after being listed as probable to play against the Jets.

Preston Brown

Keith Rivers
News
Several Bills skill position players are active for Week 4's matchup with the Texans after being listed as probable to play, including quarterback EJ Manuel (abdomen), running back C.J. Spiller (chest) and wide receivers Sammy Watkins (ribs) and Robert Woods (ankle).

Defensive backs Ron Brooks (illness) and Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) are also active after being listed as probable on the final injury report. Linebacker Keith Rivers (groin) is active after being listed as doubtful to play. The linebacker has been sidelined since Week 1.

Dan Carpenter
News
Bills kicker Dan Carpenter connected on field-goal attempts of 53, 36 and 29 yards while adding four extra points in his team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8.

Despite his excellence on field-goal duty in the win, it wasn't a perfect day for Carpenter, who had one of his five extra-point attempts hit the left upright. It was just his second miss in 203 career extra-point attempts, with his other coming back in 2009. He's 17 for 19 on field goals this season going into a Week 9 bye.

Randell Johnson
News
Bills wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Aaron Williams, cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and wide receiver Marcus Easley were all ruled inactive Week 6 vs. New England.
Mario Williams
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Marcus Easley
News
Bills wide receiver Marcus Easley returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday.

Easley has missed the last four weeks while recovering from a sprained MCL. If he's healthy enough to play Sunday, his presence on special teams could help counter the loss of Anthony Dixon on the unit, as he's expected to fill a much bigger offensive role in the wake of multiple injuries to the team's running backs.

Injury
Knee - Missed Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Fred Jackson
News
As expected, Bills running back Fred Jackson was officially ruled out for Week 8 against the Jets because of a groin injury, per WGR.

Jackson sustained the injury in the previous week against the Vikings and will likely require at least two weeks of recovery. The team will likely turn to Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon to shoulder the load against New York.

Injury
Groin - Missed Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Cyril Richardson
News
Bills coach Doug Marrone is exploring the option of making a change to the starting offensive line in an effort to improve the struggling unit, and inserting Kraig Urbik into the lineup ahead of rookie Cyril Richardson is the most likely move, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"He’s got to be ready to step up and go," Marrone said of Urbik. "If he gets the call on Sunday I’m sure he’ll be ready to go."

The Bills have surrendered 13 sacks in their last three games, and the line faces a tough test against the Jets in Week 8.

Ikponmwosa Igbinosun
News
The Bills trimmed their active roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Xavius Boyd, DT Landon Cohen, TE Dominique Jones, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Sam Miller, P Brian Moorman, QB Jordan Palmer, FB Evan Rodriguez, WR Naaman Roosevelt, C Jared Wheeler, QB Jeff Tuel, S Deon Broomfield, LB Jimmy Gaines, WR T.J. Graham, WR Caleb Holley, DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, DE Bryan Johnson, S Kenny Ladler, C Doug Legursky and G Antoine McClain.
Eric Wood
News
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.

Kyle Williams
News
Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back) returned to Sunday's game against the Jets. He suffered the injury while splitting a sack on a play that resulted in a fumble but was announced as probable to return.
Jerry Hughes
News
Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes notched five tackles and 1.5 sacks in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hughes split a sack early in the third quarter Sunday, but his solo sack proved critical, as it turned a first-and-goal in the fourth quarter into second-and-14, a play which also resulted in a sack. Hughes is up to 5.5 sacks on the season, with all but one coming in his last three games. He'll square off with the Jets in Week 8.

Duke Williams
News
Speaking on WGR 550 AM in Buffalo on Friday, Bills general manager Doug Whaley said that the safety who will start in Jarius Byrd's old spot will come off the existing roster. Whaley expects a competition between Duke Williams, Jonathan Meeks and Da'Norris Searcy, ESPN says. 
Mike Williams
News
The Bills could activate receiver Mike Williams for Week 7, according to ESPN.

Williams was a surprise scratch last weekend, and was expected to be a healthy scratch again. That could change after receiver Marquise Goodwin injured himself during Thursday's practice. The extent of Goodwin's injury is not known at this time. 

Frank Summers
News
Bills fullback Frank Summers picked up a carry Week 7 against the Vikings.

Summers gained 3 yards on his only carry of the contest. He did manage to catch a pass, but lost a yard on the play. Summers will take on the Jets Week 8.

Sammy Watkins
News
Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins did not have one of his finest moments during Sunday's win against the Jets. Although the rookie receiver had a career-high 157 receiving yards on just three catches, Watkins was tackled 5 yards short of the goal line following an 84-yard reception in the second quarter because he began celebrating too early.

Although Watkins made up for the gaffe with a 61-yard touchdown later in the game, needless to say coach Doug Marrone chose to use Watkins' mistake as a learning moment for the first-round pick.

"I said, 'There were people on that sideline' -- meaning his teammates -- 'that were upset. We're playing our butts off and we don't have time for stuff like that,'" Marrone said, per ESPN. "Those are the things we have to work on -- winning and growing up."

Chris Gragg
News
Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan caught five of his six targets for 63 yards in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hogan's big highlight came on the team's final drive, when he hauled in a 28-yard pass with less than 30 seconds left in the game to put the Bills on the two-yard line with a chance to take the lead, which they did with just one second left on the clock. It was Hogan's second game with five receptions and six targets, and he was second on the team in receiving yards to rookie Sammy Watkins in Week 7.

Tight end Scott Chandler chipped in three receptions on six targets for 36 yards after posting his first 100-yard performance of the season in the team's previous game. Tight end Chris Gragg caught both of his targets for 19 yards. No. 2 wide receiver Robert Woods managed only 10 receiving yards while catching four of his five targets in the win.

Nickell Robey
News
The Bills used rookie defensive back Nickell Robey in pass-rushing situations again in Week 16, and he got to the quarterback for the second straight game. Robey racked up two sacks in a 19-0 win over the Dolphins, one week after picking up his first career sack. Robey added four tackles Sunday. 
Seantrel Henderson
News
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.

Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan caught five of his six targets for 63 yards in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hogan's big highlight came on the team's final drive, when he hauled in a 28-yard pass with less than 30 seconds left in the game to put the Bills on the two-yard line with a chance to take the lead, which they did with just one second left on the clock. It was Hogan's second game with five receptions and six targets, and he was second on the team in receiving yards to rookie Sammy Watkins in Week 7.

Tight end Scott Chandler chipped in three receptions on six targets for 36 yards after posting his first 100-yard performance of the season in the team's previous game.

Kyle Orton
News
After a big four-touchdown game in Week 8, Bills quarterback Kyle Orton is averaging 22.3 Fantasy points per game since taking over as quarterback. And he has Sammy Watkins to thank.

Watkins has emerged as such an explosive playmaker, he is helping revive Orton's Fantasy career. Orton has multiple touchdowns in each of his last three games, while averaging 282 yards through the air. Orton is finding enough success right now to make him at least worth a look for Fantasy owners who need a boost at quarterback, though you won't get anything out of him in Week 9, with the Bills on a bye.

"It wasn't all EJ's fault. We just need more overall production from that position," Marrone said, via WGR Sportsradio 550.

After being released by the Cowboys in July and contemplating retirement, Orton signed with the Bills at the end of the preseason. It will be Orton's first start since Week 17 of last season.

Manny Lawson
News
Despite a successful first season in the middle of the Bills defense, Kiko Alonso won't play there in 2014. That's according to Bills GM Doug Whaley, who said on WGR 550 AM that Alonso will move to weak-side linebacker in 2014 with new linebacker Keith Rivers playing at the strong side. 

So who will man the middle? The Bills are hosting free-agent candidates but Whaley seems to think that "guys on campus" will get a crack at it first. Ty Powell was someone Whaley named specifically

As for linebacker Manny Lawson, Whaley said he'd like to see him become a "hybrid" player, which ESPN believes is code for a diminishing role

Leodis McKelvin
News
Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin recorded two interceptions in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

McKelvin was able to haul in his first pick on a deflected ball inside Bills territory in the second quarter. His second pick came soon after in the same quarter, as he dove in front of his man near the sidelines to set the Bills up with great field position. The offense would score a touchdown on the next play. McKelvin is up to four interceptions on the year going into the team's Week 8 matchup with the Jets.
