  • Bills' Matt Barkley: Big preseason continues

    Barkley completed eight of 10 passes with a touchdown pass and no interceptions in Friday's preseason win over the Panthers, good for a 145.8 passer rating.

    Despite two excellent preseason games, there's no chance the veteran Barkley will be overtaking Josh Allen for the starting QB job, unless the latter gets hurt or struggles horribly for much of the season on a team whose defense keeps it in playoff contention. However, Barkley is locked into the No. 2 job -- between his last few outings dating back to the 2018 season, he's proving the Bills should still be in capable hands if he gets forced into action at any point.

  • Bills' Tyler Kroft: Progress continues

    Coach Sean McDermott said Kroft (foot) is "moving in the right direction", Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    There's still no timetable for Kroft's return from a broken foot, but there's growing optimism that he can avoid a stint on the regular-season PUP list. If he remains on the PUP list by Week 1, the tight end would have to sit out the season's first six weeks.

  • Bills' Cory Carter: Splits punting duties

    Carter (knee) had two punts for an average of 37.5 yards during Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    The Texas Southern product had been dealing with a torn ACL since last season, and had been slowly working back. Carter still has an outside shot of making the roster, considering Corey Bojorquez still sits atop the depth chart.

  • Bills' Spencer Long: Back to full health

    Long (knee) suited up in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers and played 18 offensive snaps.

    Long had been dealing with a knee injury for most of training camp but was able to start the game at center. With fellow center Mitch Morse dealing with a concussion, expect Long to get more snaps as he battles for a starting spot on the offensive line.

  • Bills' Jon Feliciano: Suits up Friday

    Feliciano (shoulder) played 18 offensive snaps in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Feliciano had been dealing with the shoulder injury since Aug. 4 but made a healthy return to the field. He was able to start the game, which suggests that he has the upper hand in his battle for the starting right guard spot over Spencer Long. Expect the battle to continue as the schedule inches closer to Week 1.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Logs tackle in preseason matchup

    Johnson made one solo tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Johnson missed the preseason opener due to a groin injury but seems healed now. In all, he played nine defensive snaps and two on special teams.

  • Bills' Jerry Hughes: Makes preseason start

    Hughes started and played 14 snaps in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Hughes appears over the ankle injury that kept him out of practice earlier in the month. He'll look to improve on the 37 tackles and seven sacks he registered in 2018.

  • Bills' Senorise Perry: Loses fumble in preseason game

    Perry rushed once for three yards and lost a fumble in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Perry got his chance on the first play of the Bills' second drive of the game and promptly put the ball on the ground. While that won't help his hopes of making the roster, he at least seems to have recovered from the ankle injury that kept him out earlier in the week.

  • Bills' Ty Nsekhe: Dealing with knee soreness

    Nsekhe did not play in Friday's preseason win over the Panthers due to knee soreness, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Nsekhe's knee issues are not believed to be serious, but the Bills kept him to the sideline as a precaution. He may miss additional practice time throughout the upcoming week, and his status for the team's third preseason game against the Lions is up in the air.

  • Bills' Garrett McGhin: Injures ankle

    McGhin injured his ankle during Friday's preseason win over the Panthers.

    The severity of McGhin's ankle injury is unclear at this point, but it was troublesome enough to keep him sidelined for the remainder of Friday's tilt. He was already a longshot to make the Bills 53-man roster, so an extended absence would all but ruin his chances.

  • Bills' Cam Lewis: Exits with concussion

    Lewis left Friday's preseason game on a stretcher with his neck immobilized and was later diagnosed with a concussion.

    It was a scary situation for Lewis, and the reserve cornerback will now have to clear the league's concussion protocol before potentially returning to practice.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Hot against Panthers

    Beasley caught all five of his targets for 44 yards during Friday's 27-14 win over Carolina.

    Four of Beasley's five targets came on the Bills' opening drive as Josh Allen turned to the veteran slotman early and often. There was some question as to how a prolific underneath target like Beasley would matchup with a bazooka-armed talent like Allen, who isn't necessarily known for his accuracy and touch. Friday showed that the pairing can be pretty darn good, with Beasley offering opportunities for Allen to get in rhythm before taking shots deeper downfield. If Beasley is able to turn into Allen's security blanket underneath, his value could climb.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Efficient in win

    Allen completed nine of 11 passes for 102 yards during Friday's 27-14 win over the Panthers.

    Allen hit on several nice passes early Friday, perhaps none as impressive as the 25-yard shot up the seam to tight end Tommy Sweeney to convert a third down on Buffalo's second-possession touchdown drive. Those who bashed Allens' rookie season probably undersold it and vice versa. As a rookie, Allen was able to get by on athleticism, but seldom appeared in rhythm passing the ball like he was on Friday. He now has two strong preseason performances under his belt and appears set to surprise some doubters in 2019.

  • Bills' Devin Singletary: Totals 31 yards in win

    Singletary caught three of five passes for 25 yards and added six yard on two carries during Friday's 27-14 win over Carolina.

    Singletary rotated in on Buffalo's opening field-goal drive becoming the featured back two drives later. It's been so far so good for the rookie back, who is the young gun in a sea of veteran backs in Western New York. After coming out of Florida Atlantic, he has reportedly garnered first-team reps in camp and has put together some solid -- if not strong -- preseason appearances. Singletary might be a big part of the Bills' future. The question is whether their present holds on long enough in 2019 to make him a relative non-factor as a rookie.

  • Bills' LeSean McCoy: Punches in TD on Friday

    McCoy rushed four times for six yards and a touchdown and gathered in two of three passes for 11 yards during Friday's preseason win at Carolina.

    Coach Sean McDermott trotted out the first-team offense for two series, with McCoy the sole Bills running back to get a touch (rookie Devin Singletary was targeted but didn't complete the catch). While his production, especially on the ground, wasn't inspiring, McCoy did punch it into the end zone from one yard out and displayed his noted pass-catching ability. Aside from Singletary, the backfield plays host to Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon, so Gore may not be a three-down workhorse in 2019 as he has been for most of his career. Having said that, McCoy's usage Friday is an encouraging sign for the coming campaign.

  • Bills' Jason Croom: Still limited

    Croom (hamstring) put in a workout Friday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    Croom returned to practice in a limited fashion last Friday and has yet to return to full health. Tyler Kroft (broken foot) and Dawson Knox (hamstring) both remain sidelined, so Croom faces the opportunity to earn a roster spot if he's able to return to practice without limitations in the near future.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Ramping up workload

    Knox (hamstring) put in a workout Friday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    Knox ran routes Friday and worked with the strength and conditioning staff. The third-year pro has yet to fully practice since suffering a hamstring injury late July, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. The rookie third-round pick could be in line for key snaps when healthy while Tyler Kroft (foot) remains sidelined.
