Position Listing
Lee Smith
News
Bills tight end Lee Smith had just one reception in Week 16, in a 19-0 win over the Dolphins. He went for 24 yards on the reception, his fifth of the season. He now has 78 yards on the season, by far the best total of his career. 
Da'Norris Searcy
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. 
Aaron Williams
News
Bills CEO Russ Brandon said the $26 million contract extension given to safety Aaron Williams is "completely independent" from the team's negotiations with other players, reports ESPN.com. The suggestion is Buffalo still could re-sign safety Jairus Byrd, but that seems highly improbable given Byrd will command top dollar on the open market.

Marcell Dareus
News
New Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking forward to working with all of Buffalo's talent up front, led by Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.

"We’re an attack scheme, it’s a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback," the former Lions coach said Monday. "As much as you want to be multi-dimensional with personnel groups, this league comes down to one on one and I think we have some guys that can do that.

"Whatever anybody wants to tag the system as far as a name, it won’t be us," he added. "We’re just going to try to do whatever we can every week to do the best to have the game plan. I think the similarities you’ll see is it will be as aggressive as it can be and try to be as physical as we can be and it will be an attack style."

Chris Hairston
News
The Bills put right tackle Chris Hairston on the reserve/Non-Football Illness list.

Jamaal Johnson-Webb
News
The Bills signed their entire practice squad to reserve/futures contracts: cornerback Mario Butler, offensive tackle Edawn Coughman, quarterback Dennis Dixon, defensive end Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb, receiver Brandon Kaufman and outside linebacker Jacquies Smith.
Anthony Dixon
News
Former 49ers backup running back Anthony Dixon tweeted Friday that he'll sign a deal with the Bills Saturday morning, per The Buffalo News. Dixon, a free agent, visited the team on Friday before reaching an agreement.

He rushed for 56 yards and two touchdown behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter with the Niners.
Brandon Spikes
News
Former Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes will be staying put in the AFC East. The 26-year-old signed a one-year, $3.25 million deal with the Bills, according to the Associated Press.

Spikes had 86 tackles with the Patriots in 2013.
Steve Johnson
News
Despite the acquisition of Mike Williams from Tampa Bay, the Bills are expected to retain receiver Steve Johnson, who carries an $8.5 million cap hit, reports ESPN.com. Johnson, Williams and Robert Woods, a second-round pick last year, would be Buffalo's top three wideouts.

Thad Lewis
News
Bills quarterback Thad Lewis is no Pro Bowler, but he is at least consistent. He has passed for between 197 and 247 yards in each of his five starts this season. He hit the high end of those totals Sunday at New England.

Lewis appeared unlikely to approach that number after passing just eight times in the first half, completing three for 62 yards. But he came on strong after intermission, hitting T.J. Graham on a 41-yard pass and 12-yard touchdown off a run fake in the third quarter.

He finished 16 of 29 for the 247 yards and score.

Scott Chandler
News
Free agent tight end Scott Chandler has spent his entire career with the Bills, and he won't be leaving for at least two more years after re-signing with the team Thursday. ESPN.com reports the four-year pro will return to the Bills on a two-year contract, the financial terms of which are not yet known.

Chandler put up career highs in receptions (53) and yards (655) a year ago, though he did see his touchdown total drop to two after consecutive seasons with six scores. 

Kraig Urbik
News
Bills LB Kiko Alonso and OL Kraig Urbik are active Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Alonso is dealing with a knee injury, and was limited in practice this week. Urbik has a foot issue. He did not practice early in the week, but improved to limited practice Friday.

J.J. Unga
News
The Bills have made OG Antoine McClain, CB Brandon Smith, TE Chris Gragg, QB Jeff Tuel, OT J.J. Unga, RB Ronnie Wingo and LB Ty Powell inactive for Week 13 against the Falcons.

None of the seven players were listed on the team's injury report entering the game. They are all healthy scratches.


Marquise Goodwin
News
The Bills received minor contributions from three receivers in the Sunday loss to New England. The most proficient was tight end Scott Chandler, who tied for the team lead with three catches for 55 yards.

Adding one reception were Robert Woods for 27 yards and Marquise Goodwin for 22, both in the first quarter. The Goodwin snag came on his team's first possession of the game.

Ron Brooks
News
The Bills defense is in good shape in Week 7 against the Dolphins, as every player listed on the official injury report was able to take the field Sunday. Defensive linemen Mario Williams (hip) and Kyle Williams (Achilles, illness), defensive back Ron Brooks (foot) and linebacker Manny Lawson (hamstring) were all able to take the field for Sunday's game despite their injuries. 
Jacob Dombrowski
No Updates
T.J. Graham
News
The Bills' trade for receiver Mike Williams has put wideout T.J. Graham on the roster bubble, reports ESPN.com. The 2012 third-round pick "is seen as a one-dimensional player who must find ways to contribute beyond being a speed threat," the report said.
Keith Rivers
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

Dan Carpenter
News
The Bills could decide to keep two kickers this season with Dan Carpenter and Dustin Hopkins, reports the Buffalo News.

Last year, the Bills drafted Hopkins in the sixth round, but he hurt his groin right before the season began, and Carpenter signed and had a great season. The Bills last month re-signed Carpenter to a four-year contract worth $9.95 million, and Hopkins still is on the roster.

The report says Carpenter could continue to handle field goal and extra point attempts, and Hopkins will be used for kickoffs. 

"Would you like to have one guy that can do both? No doubt about it," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said. "But this is a situation where if it makes our team better, we're going to do it. ... Is keeping Dustin Hopkins better for the team that keeping an extra receiver, an extra DB? You juggle that."

Mario Williams
News
New Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking forward to working with all of Buffalo's talent up front, led by Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.

"We’re an attack scheme, it’s a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback," the former Lions coach said Monday. "As much as you want to be multi-dimensional with personnel groups, this league comes down to one on one and I think we have some guys that can do that.

I think the similarities you’ll see is it will be as aggressive as it can be and try to be as physical as we can be and it will be an attack style."

Marcus Easley
News
The Bills have deemed five players as probable for Sunday at New England, including quarterback Thad Lewis (shoulder), who has replaced doubtful EJ Manuel (knee) as the starter, and running back Fred Jackson (ribs).

The others are wideouts Marcus Easley and Marquise Goodwin with knee injuries and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (Achilles).

Fred Jackson
News
While Bills running back C.J. Spiller was a disappointment in 2013, his backfield partner in Fred Jackson was a star. That surprised coach Doug Marrone based on his expectations for Jackson coming into the season.

"When we were in training camp, I didn't know if Fred was going to perform at the level he performed at before," Marrone said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. "All of the sudden the season came, and I was like, wow. When the season came, he was outstanding. He really, really played extremely well, and he's probably one of the toughest players I've ever been around."

Jackson, 33, finished the 2013 season with 207 carries for 896 yards and nine touchdowns and 47 catches for 387 yards and one touchdown.

Mike Caussin
News
The Bills have re-signed tight end Mike Caussin. He has five career catches since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2010.

Ikponmwosa Igbinosun
News
The Bills signed their entire practice squad to reserve/futures contracts: cornerback Mario Butler, offensive tackle Edawn Coughman, quarterback Dennis Dixon, defensive end Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb, receiver Brandon Kaufman and outside linebacker Jacquies Smith.
Eric Wood
News
Strong safety T.J. Ward warned the Bills that the Browns were targeting quarterback EJ Manuel, according to Buffalo center Eric Wood. Manuel injured his knee on a low hit by secondary mate Tashaun Gipson in the second half of the Cleveland victory on Thursday night.

Bills center Eric Wood told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle that Ward yelled to him, "I told you to warn him we were going to get him" after the hit. It is unknown if Ward was referring to injuring Manuel or merely getting a hard hit on the rookie quarterback.

Jacquies Smith
News
The Bills signed their entire practice squad to reserve/futures contracts: cornerback Mario Butler, offensive tackle Edawn Coughman, quarterback Dennis Dixon, defensive end Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb, receiver Brandon Kaufman and outside linebacker Jacquies Smith.

Stephon Gilmore
News
Bills defensive back Stephon Gilmore finally picked off his first pass of the season Sunday, in a 27-6 loss to the Buccaneers. Gilmore added two tackles -- both solo -- in the Week 14 loss.

Gilmore has 28 tackles and one interception in eight games in his second season. 

Stefan Charles
News
The Bills have signed defensive tackle Stefan Charles off the Tennessee practice squad, the Buffalo News has reported. Charles had been waived by the Titans in their last cuts, but was signed to the practice squad. He has yet to play in an NFL regular season game.
Erik Pears
News
First-year Bills head coach has been impressed with starting right tackle Erik Pears during the preseason.

"Outstanding. He really has (progressed)," Marrone said at his Tuesday press conference. "I’ve seen him really make a jump, especially recent days. He gets a lot of great work. Obviously going against Mario (Williams) and the defensive ends on our team, I think that he’s really upped his production from what you’ve seen when he’s played here in the past. I really think he’s going about it as a pro, he works extremely hard. I work with that group, and I really see him. The funny thing is people look and they’ll say ‘gosh, this guy has been here six years or eight years and he is what he is.’ A lot of times, those players, they can continue to get better. I see him as a guy, even though he’s a veteran, he’s really got a lot better, especially in these past couple of days."

C.J. Spiller
News
Bills running back C.J. Spiller told the media Tuesday that he feels "28 percent" following the nagging injuries he had last season. What Spiller meant is that he's feeling good and ready for the offseason workouts, saying all of the injury is "all behind me."

"I feel good. Did a lot of things in this offseason to try to see where I was at and it responded well," Spiller said. "I will continue to do what I need to do to make sure I'm ready to go come September, but for the most part I feel pretty good. ...  I'm ready to get back on the field and really start playing again."

Spiller said he's not concerned about his contract status and is more focused on being ready for camp. Spiller is entering a contract year in 2014.

Kyle Williams
News
New Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking forward to working with all of Buffalo's talent up front, led by Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.

Jarius Wynn
News
The Bills signed free agent defensive end Jarius Wynn to a one-year deal, reports the Buffalo News. He played for the Chargers and Cowboys last season, getting 11 tackles, two sacks and two pass breakups.
Jonathan Meeks
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. 
EJ Manuel
News
Bills quarterback EJ Manuel took part in the start of offseason workouts Tuesday morning, reports ESPN.

After missing the final two games of last season with a sprained LCL in his left knee, Manuel underwent knee surgery in January. He took part in the entire portion of Tuesday's workout open to reporters.

Dustin Hopkins
News
The Bills could decide to keep two kickers this season with Dan Carpenter and Dustin Hopkins, reports the Buffalo News.

Last year, the Bills drafted Hopkins in the sixth round, but he hurt his groin right before the season began, and Carpenter signed and had a great season. The Bills last month re-signed Carpenter to a four-year contract worth $9.95 million, and Hopkins still is on the roster.

The report says Carpenter could continue to handle field goal and extra point attempts, and Hopkins will be used for kickoffs. 

"Would you like to have one guy that can do both? No doubt about it," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said. "But this is a situation where if it makes our team better, we're going to do it. ... Is keeping Dustin Hopkins better for the team that keeping an extra receiver, an extra DB? You juggle that."

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
