  • Bills' Mario Addison: Limited Wednesday

    Addison (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session. Addison sustained a shoulder injury during Saturday's wild-card win over the Patriots, and coach Sean McDermott said after the game that the 34-year-old is considered day-to-day. It's encouraging that Addison was able to take the field Wednesday, but he'll likely need to practice fully later in the week if he hopes to avoid the injury report for Sunday's divisional matchup against Kansas City.

  • Bills' Mario Addison: Helps the cause

    Addison has agreed to take a pay cut of $2 million to help the team's cap room, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. The Bills' offseason strategy has been to keep as much of their AFC Championship team intact as possible, not an easy task for general manager Brandon Beane given the reduced cap for all teams. Somehow the team has managed to keep Addison, Vernon Butler, Matt Milano and Daryl Williams all in the fold already. The veteran Addison will be back to try and secure a starting DE role across from fellow veteran Jerry Hughes. Addison posted 30 tackles and 5.0 sacks in his first season as a Bill over 15 regular-season gams after coming over from Carolina.

  • Bills' Mario Addison: Disruptive in divisional win

    Addison made three tackles -- two for a loss -- and a sack in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jets. The Jets threw early and often in Week 1, and with Matt Milano (hamstring) leaving the game early, Addison was deployed on 35 of 56 defensive snaps (62 percent), with several of those coming as a linebacker. He was a nuisance for the Jets' offensive line, and if Milano's forced to miss any time, Addison could line up as a linebacker more often in Week 2 against the Dolphins.
