Bills' Tremaine Edmunds: Rookie making his mark
Edmunds tallied eight tackles and his first pro interception in Sunday's loss to the Jets.
The 20-year-old Edmunds became the youngest player in NFL history to record an interception, a nice little resume piece for the athletic middle linebacker. Edmunds has logged exactly eight tackles in four of his last five games. With fellow linebacker Matt Milano suffering a possible serious injury, Edmunds may be counted on to do even more next week against the Lions.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Stephen Hauschka: Shaken up in Week 14
Hauschka suffered an injury to his lower back and pelvis following a hit on a blocked field goal in Sunday's loss to the Jets, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. "I was doing my best just to get my foot on the ball," Hauschka said. "It definitely stiffened up my body."
Hauschka says he's pretty sore and will have a better idea on the severity of the injury when he wakes up Monday and sees how he feels, which is likely to be followed by some evaluation by the team.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marcus Murphy: Could see spike in role
Murphy rushed four times for 10 yards while catching his lone target for eight more in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets.
Murphy didn't do much with his opportunities after both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) exited due to their respective injuries. In fact, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie was more productive as a rusher than Murphy, turning four carries into 22 yards and a touchdown. Should McCoy and Ivory sit out in Week 15, Murphy would become Buffalo's primary rushing option against the Lions.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Shows off rushing skills
McKenzie rushed four times for 22 yards and a touchdown while catching four of seven targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets.
McKenzie got some looks as a rusher and made the most of those opportunities after both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) were forced out by injuries. His longest run was a 15-yarder, which also culminated in a touchdown late in the first quarter. Should both McCoy and Ivory sit out against the Lions in Week 15, McKenzie would likely steal a few carries from Marcus Murphy.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Zay Jones: Production limited by drops
Jones caught three of nine targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets.
Jones struggled with drops throughout the afternoon, producing an underwhelming stat line despite leading the Bills in targets. He's alternated rises and drops in receiving yards in every single game this season, and Jones is likely to keep that pattern going by exceeding 22 yards against the Lions in Week 15.... See More ...

Bills' Robert Foster: Over 100 yards against Jets again
Foster caught seven of eight targets for 104 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets.
Foster accounted for more than half of quarterback Josh Allen's 206 passing yards. Something about facing this opponent brings out the best in the rookie, as he's topped 100 yards in both meetings with the Jets while totaling 151 yards against all other competition. While Foster's probably the most fantasy relevant receiver on the Bills, Allen's struggles as a passer will make it tough to trust any member of Buffalo's offense against the Lions in Week 15....

Bills' Josh Allen: Legs making up for poor passing
Allen completed 18 of 36 passes for 206 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets. He also rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, in addition to losing a fumble.
Allen capped the opening drive with a six-yard rushing touchdown en route to 87 first-half rushing yards. The athletic rookie has bolstered his fantasy stock by piling up 335 yards on the ground over the past three games, but he's also averaging fewer than 200 passing yards and has more interceptions than touchdowns through the air over that span, leaving much to be desired with his play under center. Buffalo didn't draft Allen with the expectation of immediate NFL-readiness, so he remains a high-ceiling dynasty prospect despite his current passing struggles. The Bills will host the Lions in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Matt Milano: Carted off Sunday
Milano was carted off the field due to a left foot injury he suffered in Sunday's game against the Jets, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.
Milano got twisted awkwardly near the goal line late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game, and his injury is being diagnosed as a left foot injury. Following the game, Milano was seen hobbling around the Bills' locker room with his left shoe off after he was taken for x-rays, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Chris Ivory: Exits game with shoulder injury
Ivory was forced out of Sunday's game against the Jets with a shoulder injury.
With LeSean McCoy dealing with a hamstring issue, Marcus Murphy is now in line to handle the Bills' running back carries Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Bills' LeSean McCoy: Shut down for day
McCoy (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
McCoy turned in a dud for those that rolled with him in the fantasy playoffs, generating just one yard on his two carries before departing after the Bills' opening drive. Chris Ivory will serve as the Bills' primary option out of the backfield for the rest of the contest. The team should shed more light on the extent of McCoy's injury after the contest and reveal whether or not he'll require an MRI.... See More ... See Less
Bills' LeSean McCoy: Injures hamstring, return uncertain
McCoy was removed from Sunday's game against the Jets with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.
McCoy likely sustained the injury at some point during Buffalo's opening possession, as the Bills went with Chris Ivory as their primary running back on their subsequent two drives. If McCoy fails to return to the game before the end of the second quarter, the Bills should provide an update on his outlook for the rest of the contest coming out of halftime.... See More ...

Bills' Ray-Ray McCloud: New chance following departures
McCloud is active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
McCloud has been a healthy scratch the last two games, but with Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes getting the heave-ho during the week, the team has decided to give younger players an uncluttered look the rest of the way. Considering McCloud flopped in his first few looks earlier in the season and was only a sixth-round draft choice, any action he sees -- he'll likely be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver to go with some special-teams snaps -- might be more of an audition to stick with the team than anything else....

Bills' Jason Croom: Not playing Week 14
Croom (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Listed as doubtful heading into the weekend after failing to practice this week, Croom's unavailability hardly comes as a surprise. With the Tennessee product sitting out, Logan Thomas checks in as the clear No. 2 tight end behind starter Charles Clay.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Ready for more opportunity
McKenzie (toe) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
McKenzie and Robert Foster are now the clear-cut top depth options at receiver behind Zay Jones now that Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes have been discarded. With that in mind, the odds are good McKenzie gets a larger number of offensive snaps the last four games of the season. He'll also see work in the return game.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Jerry Hughes: Heavy fine
Hughes has been fined $53,482 for unsportsmanlike conduct stemming from his verbal altercation with official Roy Ellison following last week's loss to the Dolphins, Tom Pelissero of NFL.comreports.
Ellison was placed on administrative leave over the event, so no one wins in the incident between two figures with a history of hotheaded behavior. Hughes has not been suspended, so he'll be out there Sunday when the Bills face the Jets, where he'll be looking to introduce himself to rookie quarterback Sam Darnold.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Da'Mari Scott: Signed off practice squad
Scott has been signed off the practice squad, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Well, that didn't take long. Just three days after joining the Bills' practice squad, Scott will move up to the 53-man roster thanks in part to the release of veteran wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes. The Bills clearly want to give their young corps of pass catchers an extended opportunity given their dismal record this season, but it's unlikely Scott will immediately jump to the top of a depth chart full of inexperienced options....

Bills' John Miller: Ready for Jets
Miller (strained oblique muscle) practiced fully Friday for the second straight day and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets.
He'll resume his starting guard spot Sunday as the Bills try to keep the hands of Jets defenders off shiny rookie quarterback Josh Allen.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Uncertain for Week 14
McKenzie (toe) practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
McKenzie wasn't able to put in full work in the Bills' final session of the week after injuring himself a day earlier. The 5-foot-7 speedster is expected to step in as the Bills' No. 2 or 3 receiver over the final quarter of the season with Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes out of town, but he'll miss out on at least one chance to seize the opportunity if he isn't able to rally in time for Sunday. The fact that he was able to practice in some fashion Friday is probably a good sign, however.... See More ... See Less
