He’s straightforward with the players and has always tried to put his best foot forward,” Dareus said. “He’s a player’s coach we all know that.

He’s just a good guy and he’s there for me.”'

Marker 4 things to take from Tuesday’s practice [1:38 AM] reports: 'Buffalo’s offense was working at a breakneck pace, at times in a muddle huddle before the next play and other times they just got right back to the line and ran the next play.

Marker EJ Manuel's accuracy one of 3 explanations for lack of touchdowns [10:45 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We've been working on it," Williams said. "We know that’s a point of emphasis. We weren’t ranked high in the red zone last year, so we’ll be working on it. We’ll see this week. We'll see if all the work has been paying off. There are no excuses, but last week we didn’t even have red zone in the game plan, so that made it kind of difficult, but no excuses, we have to score down there and make the catches we’re supposed to. We’ll see this week."'

I was right 99.9 percent of the time last year and I was wrong one time and I have to live with that. So I think when it comes down to injuries, I’m going to let Scott handle it.”'

Marker Marrone vague on Watkins' injury [1:49 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Ribs are a funny thing. They really are," Marrone said. "You can practice the next day sometimes. You can come back into a game. Sometimes on the x-ray it shows that it's a crack. Sometimes it shows that it's not and then you take a better x-ray and there is a crack. Sometimes, depending on the player, you can be out two weeks, four weeks, six weeks or two months. I'm not going to get into that stuff this year."'

Marker Glenn returns, Watkins sits at Monday's Bills practice [1:48 AM]

Marker Hard To Believe How Awful Bills' QB Situation Is [1:45 AM]
WHAM-AM reports: 'Some people say Manuel is “inconsistent.” I’m not buying that. I think he has been consistent – and not in a good way. His accuracy on short passes is suspect. He refuses to throw deep. I’m pretty sure that he can, but what’s the big wait? His decision-making on the field is suspect – at least so far.'

Marker 4 things to take from Monday’s practice [1:44 AM] reports: 'Bills starting left tackle Cordy Glennmissed the first half of training camp with an undisclosed medical condition that landed him on the Non-Football Illness list.

Marker Robert Woods delivering consistency [1:43 AM] reports: '“Woody is going to play in my opinion,” said Manuel. “I don’t think there’s ever going to be a game when he’s not playing. I assume that he’ll be out there when we first go out as the first group. He’s such a versatile receiver. You could put him in the slot and put him outside. That’s on [Offensive Coordinator] (Nathaniel) Hackett and [Head Coach] (Doug) Marrone to make that decision, but I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’ll be on the field.”'

Olean Times Herald reports: 'Quarterback E.J. Manuel’s numbers weren’t bad ... 17-of-27 passing for 148 yards. But no TD passes and an interception when he underthrew a ball into coverage translated to a pedestrian 62.0- passer rating.'
