Bills' Ed Oliver: Sheds injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Nursing knee bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver did not practice Thursday due to a knee issue after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rapoport says he's been told this is a knee bruise and not a structural issue, which makes sense since at one point Oliver looked to be in great pain during Sunday's win over the Rams but ended up back out there for more action. This may be something that's been bothering Oliver for a while, as he missed some practice work prior to the Week 3 contest with a knee issue before returning to full activity last Friday.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Ready to face Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Oliver began the week as a non-participant in practice, but he managed to return to full activity Friday. The second-year defensive tackle notched a sack versus Miami in Week 2, and he'll look to keep up that disruptive momentum against the Rams.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Knee issue lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver missed practice Wednesday due to a knee injury.

The second-year defensive tackle suffered the injury during Sunday's win at Miami but muddled through it and by all accounts finished the game. With four tackles and a sack, Oliver was a difference maker in the close win. We'll see if he's able to practice on some level Thursday, as there's been no word from the coaching staff that this is more than a minor injury.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Back to the task at hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (sore hip) returned to practice Sunday after sitting out most of the week, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

It sounds like Oliver will be fine moving forward. The Bills are expecting big things from their second-year lineman after making him the No. 9 overall pick in 2019.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Still missing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Oliver is dealing with a sore hip, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Although the 2019 first-round pick has missed valuable practice time, McDermott noted that the Bills are hopeful that Oliver's soreness will subside in the next few days. After racking up 43 tackles (24 solo) and five sacks in his first pro season, Oliver is expected to open 2020 in a starting role at defensive tackle.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Misses Monday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver missed Monday's practice session due to a hip injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The 2019 first-rounder had offseason core muscle surgery, but there's no word yet if this is related and/or if he's suffering lingering effects and needs some days off early on in camp.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Charges potentially being dropped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver's attorney, Gary Patterson, said Wednesday that all DWI and weapon charges against the defensive lineman stemming from his May 16 arrest are being dismissed, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Patterson states that the results of Oliver's testing all came back clean and free of drugs, which therefore would make it legal for Oliver to be carrying a pistol since he was reportedly not intoxicated. The authorities or the NFL may have more to say about the matter, but it appears Oliver may be one step closer to getting on with a full 2020 season.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Significant competition for reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (abdomen) will have competition for reps following the offseason additions of Vernon Butler and Quinton Jefferson, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

The departure of Jordan Phillips earlier in the offseason appeared to create a clear path toward a starting spot for Oliver, but Buffalo added some reliable veterans in Butler and Jefferson to the interior defensive line while also bringing in Mario Addison and second-round pick A.J. Epenesa on the edge. Oliver had a decent rookie showing with 43 total tackles and five sacks in 16 games last year, but he underwent core muscle surgery in January and was arrested on DWI and weapons charges in March. The young defensive tackle could be subject to discipline from the league regardless of how his legal situation unfolds.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Facing DWI, weapon charges
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (abdomen) was arrested Saturday in Houston on charges of driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

According to the police report, Oliver was asked to take a field sobriety test after he was spotted with an open beer between his legs when deputies pulled over his vehicle. Deputies then proceeded to search his car and discovered a pistol before transporting Oliver to Montgomery County Jail. The Bills are aware of Oliver's arrest and plan to gather more information regarding the incident before issuing further comment. Oliver, who recorded 43 tackles and five sacks in 16 games (seven starts) as a rookie last season, could be subject to discipline from the NFL, regardless of how his legal process plays out.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Could land starting spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (core muscle surgery) should see an opportunity for more playing time after Jordan Phillips signed a big free-agent deal with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

The No. 9 overall pick in 2019 had a decent rookie season with 43 tackles and 5.0 sacks, but Oliver could have done more if he didsn't have to take a back seat to Phillips, who was simply a surprise stud for the team last season. The Bills loved what Phillips brought to the table but decided they didn't want to match the high price tag he got from Arizona with a talented option waiting in the wings. Oliver could blow past his rookie totals in his second campaign.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Battling core injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver underwent core-muscle surgery from Dr. Williams Meyers in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

Oliver previously tweeted that he'd undergone surgery, but the nature of the injury being addressed wasn't clear. The procedure was successful, and it doesn't appear this issue will keep Oliver out of the offseason program in April. The 22-year-old is coming off an excellent rookie season, where he tallied 43 tackles and five sacks over 16 games to be named to the 2019 PFWA All-Rookie Team.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Goes under knife
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver revealed via his personal Twitter account that he underwent surgery Tuesday.

It's still unclear what Oliver had surgery on, but the rookie did have knee issues during his collegiate career. Oliver is coming off an impressive first year in the league, as he was named to the 2019 PFWA All-Rookie Team after registering 43 tackles and five sacks over 16 games. We should know more about the nature of Oliver's injury soon.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Figuring things out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver tallied four tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed during Thursday's upset win at Dallas.

The first-round rookie was previously passed on the depth chart by Jordan Phillips, but the former now has at least one sack in three straight games, joining Darryl Talley as the only rookies in Bills history to accomplish that feat. Oliver should remain a strong part of the interior-line rotation for the Bills, and he was a true catalyst in the Thanksgiving win.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Tallies another sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver recorded one sack across 22 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Oliver now has sacks in back-to-back contests, bringing his season total to three. The rookie is only playing in a little over 50 percent of the defensive snaps this season as he continues to rotate with Jordan Phillips and Star Lotulelei.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Registers second sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver recorded three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 37-20 win against the Dolphins.

Oliver's usage has tapered off since the Week 6 bye, as he's logged less than 50 percent of defensive snaps in three of the last five games. During that stretch, the rookie first-rounder notched a sack in each game against Miami, accounting for his only two sacks this year. Oliver didn't rack up sacks in college, but he was an explosive run stopper with 53 tackles for loss over three years. Through his first 10 NFL games, Oliver has 23 tackles and just two for a loss. Considering he's only 21 years old, Oliver has plenty of time to develop and replicate his collegiate output at the top level.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Takes back seat to Phillips
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver logged two tackles during Sunday's win over Washington.

The prized rookie has made a decent impression on the coaching staff but has struggled for production in 2019, making just 20 tackles and one sack halfway through the season. Worse, teammate Jordan Phillips has played so well that coach Sean McDermott gave him the start over Oliver this week, and the latter played a season-low 18 snaps. While his long-term prospects remain high, Oliver can be safely avoided for now, even in leagues that make you start defensive tackles.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Notches first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver made two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Dolphins.

Oliver hasn't been a threatening force yet this year, but it's a positive sign that he finally got his first career sack under his belt. The 21-year-old still has plenty of time to live up to his first-round pedigree, and he'll look to keep the momentum going in Week 8 against the Eagles, as Carson Wentz has been sacked just 1.9 times per game.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Numbers not there
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver played 42 defensive snaps but did not record a tackle or sack during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

While the No. 9 overall pick in April hasn't taken the league by storm yet, the Bills coaches seemed pleased with Oliver's play even though he's yet to get to the quarterback and has only five tackles through his first four NFL games. More specifically, he's not getting caught out of position on too many occasions and he's doing a decent job clogging up space. The numbers will come around, but for now, Oliver is far removed from the IDP radar. He's gotten between 59 and 65 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the team's games so far.

Bills' Ed Oliver: Moves into starter's role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver has taken over a starting defensive tackle spot, a role that had temporarily been helped by veteran Jordan Phillips, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Coach Leslie Frazier was actually referring to Phillips' new backup role in the article, but it's become clear based on playing time, practice reps and the coaching staff's comments that Oliver -- the No. 9 overall pick in April -- will be the starter for the regular season. While it's hard to pile up stats from an interior position, Oliver has the skill set and ability to eventually do it better than most defensive tackles.
