  • Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Resting Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alexander was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice. Alexander was given a rest day heading into Week 2's matchup against the Chargers on Sunday. The 35-year-old managed eight combined tackles in the Bill's season opener against the Ravens, in which Buffalo's defense fell apart at the seams. The linebacker was mostly used in run defense Week 1 and looks likely to continue in that role as the season progresses. While Alexander likely won't come close to his 12.5-sack 2016 season, he should continue to be a reliable accumulator of tackles.

  • Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Plans to play in 2018
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alexander said Monday that he intends to keep playing in 2018, Jadon Ceravolo of the Bills' official site reports. "I mean, that's the plan for me," Alexander said. "Obviously, the organization has to make a decision on whether or not they want to keep me. Then once that happens, I have to earn my right back on this team." After coming out of nowhere to produce 12.5 sacks in his first season with the Bills in 2016 at age 33, Alexander took a step back in 2017 as he was used more in run defense under a new scheme compared to his pass-rushing ways in 2016. However, he was still an effective contributor with 74 tackles (59 solo), three sacks and three forced fumbles in 16 games. The linebacker remains under contract through the 2018 season, and given his reasonable $3.4 million cap hit, it would be surprising if the Bills cut him during the offseason. That being said, Alexander could end up ceding more frequent snaps to the team's younger reserve linebackers as the Bills -- assuming they want him back -- try to keep him as fresh and effective as possible.

  • Alexander accrued nine tackles (six solo) against the Saints on Sunday. The veteran linebacker now has 56 tackles (43 solo) through nine games, putting him on pace for 100 tackles this season. However, Alexander has recorded just two sacks this season, which is nothing compared to the monstrous 12.5 sacks he racked up in 2016.

  • Bills' Lorenzo Alexander: Receives day off Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alexander was held out of practice Wednesday for rest, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Considering Alexander is 34 years old and just completed an active game (55 total snaps between defense and special teams) in hot weather, his day off seems easily merited. Alexander is off to another fine start to 2017 with 15 tackles and a sack through two contests.
