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.

Bryan Johnson
News
The Bills have placed defensive end Bryan Johnson on their practice squad three days after releasing him from their 53-man roster.

Johnson has been active for two games, but has yet to play a down.

News
The Bills listed tight end Chris Gragg (knee), safety Da'Norris Searcy (hamstring), and Mike Williams as out for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Searcy, who left Week 14 against the Broncos and was unable to return, has 47 tackles and three interceptions this year in Buffalo. 

Defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee) is listed as questionable while kicker Dan Carpenter (groin) and defensive tackle Stefan Charles (quad) are probable. 

Erik Pears
News
Bills rookie offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio said Friday that he has had "a lot of reps" as the right guard with the first team in practice, the Buffalo News reports.

It's unclear whether Kouandjio is close to sliding into the starting lineup over the struggling Erik Pears, but coach Doug Marrone said the rookie "absolutely might" be active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Kouandjio has been a regular on the inactive list this season. He has seen work with the scout team as right tackle in practice, but it appears the team could be preparing him for a move inside.

C.J. Spiller
News
Bills running back C.J. Spiller is getting healthy again. Spiller, who has fully recovered from a shoulder injury, just ended the final season of his contract and is looking at his options for next season.

Spiller has played five seasons for the Bills, only playing two full years. He ran for 1,244 yards in 2012 with six touchdowns.

Kyle Orton
News
Introduced as Bills head coach Wednesday, Rex Ryan was his usual blustery self.

“I know it’s been 15 years since the Bills have been to the playoffs,” he said. “Get ready. We’re going. We are going.”

Ryan stopped short of guaranteeing a Super Bowl, saying, “I’ll guarantee the pursuit of it.”

He said his message to the team was simple: “We’re going to be playing games in January and so forth – start preparing that way.”

Ryan professed to be “not concerned at all” about his quarterback situation. Though he did not commit to EJ Manuel as the starter, Ryan said the second-year pro “has a lot of traits you look for in a quarterback.”

Kyle Orton announced his retirement following the season. Asked about a possible reunion with Mark Sanchez, Ryan said the team will explore all options.

The Bills went 9-7 this season, then coach Doug Marrone opted out of his contract.

"Will we explore possible veteran free agents or draft picks out there? Absolutely," Ryan said. "We're going to explore everything to add competition because that makes your whole team better."
