Top Ed Oliver News

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Fifth-year option exercised

    The Bills exercised Oliver's fifth-year team option for 2023 on Tuesday.

    Oliver, who was the Bills' first-round pick in 2019, has totaled 117 tackles, 12 sacks, eight pass deflections and three forced fumbles during his first three seasons in the NFL. Buffalo will likely engage in extension talks with the defensive tackle during the offseason, but he currently remains under team control through the 2023 campaign.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Records sack in win

    Oliver logged four tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 29-15 win over Atlanta.

    Oliver was limited to half a sack across his first 14 appearances of the 2021 campaign, but he now has a sack in each of the last two games. He hasn't played more than 67 percent of the defensive snaps in any of his appearances this year and has had limited production in spite of his recent uptick in sacks.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Will play through ankle injury

    Oliver (ankle) will be active Week 17 against Atlanta.

    Oliver has recorded two or more tackles in every game since Week 11, but his status for this week was in question after he served as a limited participant in each practice session. He'll once again take on the starting defensive tackle role -- an area that will see its depth take a hit with Vernon Butler a healthy scratch.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Questionable for Sunday

    Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Oliver (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    It's unclear when Oliver picked up the injury, but he has been limited at each practice this week. The 24-year-old defensive tackle has yet to miss a game this season and has amassed 17 tackles (12 solo), two pass deflections, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble across his last six appearances. If he's unable to suit up, Harrison Phillips and Vernon Butler (illness) would both be candidates for increased snaps.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Will play Sunday

    Oliver (chest) will play Sunday against the Buccaneers.

    Oliver popped up on the injury report this week when he logged a limited practice Thursday. He was able to get in a full practice Friday and should be all set for Sunday. The third-year pro will man one of the interior spots of the Bills' defensive line Sunday against Tampa Bay.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Chest injury surfaces

    Oliver was limited for Thursday's practice due to a chest injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Oliver did practice fully Wednesday, so the key question would seem to be whether he picked up the injury at some point during Thursday's session or if the team is simply managing a trench player's reps as we get to the latter part of the regular season. While Oliver doesn't make a lot of big mistakes on the field, his totals of 25 tackles and a half-sack are somewhat disappointing for a player taken ninth overall in the 2019 Draft.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Set for divisional round

    Oliver (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round game against Baltimore.

    Oliver began the week with back-to-back limited sessions, but he managed to handle full practice reps Thursday. The 2019 first-round pick is all set to handle his usual key role securing the interior of Buffalo's defensive line versus the Ravens.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Limited ahead of divisional round

    Oliver was listed as a limited participant Tuesday due to an ankle injury.

    The Bills had several players listed as limited for their first session of the week, so we imagine Oliver will pick things up as the prep work moves forward. The 2019 first-rounder had a modest two tackles in Saturday's win over the Colts, but as an interior defender he's less likely to put up eye-popping stats, while the coaching staff continues to praise his strong play.

  • Bills' Ed Oliver: Sheds injury tag

    Oliver (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's contest in Las Vegas.

    Oliver managed to log a 'DNP/LP/FP' practice slate while dealing with a knee bruise this week, and it looks like he should be able to handle his usual starting role at defensive tackle. The 2019 first-round pick has generally floated between 50 and 70 percent of defensive snaps this season, so Quinton Jefferson and Harrison Phillips would likely see expanded roles if Oliver were to be restricted in any way.
