WGR-AM reports: 'Hunter, 25, is entering his fourth season in the National Football League after being drafted in the second round (34th overall) out of Tennessee in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. In three seasons with the Titans, Hunter caught 68 passes for 1,116 yards and eight touchdowns.'

Marker Watkins out Sunday, Rex expresses 'major concern' could be long-term [1:34 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“If Sammy could play, then obviously we want him out there,” Ryan said. “But if this is something that’s hurting this young man in any way, shape, or form, then absolutely I don’t want him out there. And that’s everybody in this organization. We want what’s best for this young man. Obviously, we all want him playing because of the kind of talent he is, but if it’s best he’s not out there then he won’t be out there.”'

Marker No Watkins, Salas, Kouandjio to start Friday's practice [1:33 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'While those players weren’t seen early on Friday, safety Colt Anderson (foot), CB Ronald Darby (hamstring), QB Cardale Jones (right shoulder), TE Charles Clay (knee), S Aaron Williams (knee), S Jonathan Meeks, and OT Cordy Glenn (ankle) were all going through stretching and drills.'

Marker Bills officially place Sammy Watkins on I-R [1:32 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Bills conducted their final practice of the week in Orchard Park before heading out to New England for their Week Four contest, and after the fact unveiled the official injury report for the week. Although listed as "questionable" last week, the Bills removed any lingering questions this week surrounding his injury, and announced that Watkins would not play.'

Marker Did the Bills mismanage Watkins injury? [1:31 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Remember, reports early in the week surfaced that Watkins complained of soreness in his foot following the Ravens game, and had an MRI done to make sure that there was no further damage. The MRI apparently came back fine, but even so, the wide receiver still felt what he felt after the game.'

Marker Bills place Watkins on I-R; sign WR Hunter [1:30 AM] reports: 'The team's decision to shut Watkins down was anything but surprising. Head coach Rex Ryan said on Friday that he had "major concerns" that Watkins foot problem could be a long term issue.'

Marker Watkins, Salas, Kouandjio all out for Sunday [1:29 AM] reports: '“He’s out. That’s just the way it is,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “We know he’s not playing. If we thought he could go obviously we’d play him regardless of whether he practiced or not. He doesn’t feel good enough to play.”'

Marker Scouting Report - Week 4 - Bills-Patriots [1:28 AM] reports: 'Knowing the bulk of Blount’s carries take place between the tackles Brown will need to be the man that meets the 250-pound back in the hole. Brown has been stout against the run this season, and Arizona’s David Johnson may serve as good prep when it comes to facing a big back like the league’s leading rusher.'

Marker Well-traveled OT Michael Ola ready if called upon [1:27 AM] reports: '“It’s his ability to adapt and go from one place to another,” said Bills offensive assistant Pat Meyer of Ola. “Learn this language or this technique now, it’s a difficult thing. Coach Kromer and I have had a lot of experience with him so he knew our coaching style and our coaching techniques. He knows a lot about how we teach it so it should be a little easier for him coming in here than somewhere else.”'

Marker Friday's New England Coverage [8:35 AM] reports: Click here

Marker From 'Turbo' package to 'Cheeseburger' blitzes, Bills will have something ready [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The fact is, the Bills' defense will concoct a different for each opponent that has more to do with what the other team does offensively than the man behind center. For instance, although Palmer had said that the "Turbo" (a look that consisted of one lineman (Williams), three linebackers (Jerry Hughes, Lorenzo Alexander and Preston Brown) and seven defensive backs) was something he hadn't seen previously from the Bills, there were instances when the Bills used it in their Sept. 15 loss against the New York Jets.'

Marker Zach Brown fills the gap for Bills [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Zach is a very talented individual. Physically, he’s as gifted as most linebackers in this league,” defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman said. “He can run. He can hit. He can cover. He can tackle well. He can blitz. I mean, there’s very few things that he can’t do.”'

Marker Rex Ryan on dealing with New England media: 'We're here in Buffalo. Nobody likes anything [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Oh please! I mean it’s not, like, the first time. This is like seven, eight years. It’s the same every time you talk to them. So you have fun with them, going back and forth."'

Marker Updates on Sammy Watkins, Cordy Glenn & Ronald Darby; McCoy honored; Williams wants to meet Rona [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I guess there’s a concern, but we’ll just see how this thing goes,” Ryan said. “Obviously, this is what the plan was, try to get him there on Sunday, see how he feels and if he’s ready to roll, turn him loose.”'

Marker Stephen A. Smith: Rex Ryan is 'mentally weak' [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"To be on Year Six where you've missed the playoffs, and you still talk as much as you talk, is bad enough," Smith said. "But then when you turn around and get ultra sensitive when somebody brings up FACTS that contradict all the stuff you bloviated about, and you get all sensitive where that ultimately is your answer to every other question that follows, it shows me that you're mentally weak. That you can't take what you dish out. It also shows me why your teams ain't making the playoffs. Because you're busy being friends and getting along and having players stand up and speak on your behalf because they like you so much."'

Marker Bills will wear all white against Patriots [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'This will be the first time the Bills go white-on-white this year. They wore white jerseys with blue pants at Baltimore, red on red for the Color Rush game against the Jets, and then blue jerseys with white pants for the home game against Arizona.'

Marker Rex Ryan, Anthony Lynn, Dennis Thurman Thursday pressers [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Guys that did not participate: Greg Salas with a groin, (Cyrus) Kouandjio ankle, (Patrick) Lewis knee, (Sammy) Watkins foot, (Jonathan) Meeks did not participate with a foot, Walt Patulski did not participate. Limited today, (Colt) Anderson foot, (Ronald) Darby hamstring, Cardale Jones—it’s his birthday by the way—right shoulder, (Charles) Clay knee, Aaron Williams ankle, and Cordy Glenn ankle. Alright fire away.'

Marker Unraveling the mystery of alleged Coughlin-Pegulas meeting [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The fun started when someone posted in a comment section on that a "buddy of mine who works at" New Era Field had spotted Coughlin there, and "apparently he met with the Pegulas."'

Marker Bills rookie Adolphus Washington finding his way [1:51 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“They’re a great program,” Washington said, recalling his pre-draft visit to New England last spring. “Their program was run a lot like it was at Ohio State for me, pretty structured and everything is geared to be great.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills 'hopeful' Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby and Cordy Glenn can play Week 4 [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I guess there's a concern but we'll just see how this thing goes," Ryan said. "Obviously this is what the plan was. Try to get him there on Sunday and see how he feels and if he's ready then turn him loose."'

Marker Former Buffalo Bills FB Corey Knox receives World Wrestling Entertainment tryout [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'According to the WWE's website, Knox was one of 40 athletes who were invited to take part in a tryout at the WWE Performance Center.'

Marker Rex Ryan on Patriots media: 'In Buffalo, nobody likes anything in Boston' [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Oh please. I mean, it's not like the first time," Ryan said with a laugh. "This is like seven or eight years -- it's the same every time you talk to them. So you have fun with them, going back and forth."'

Marker Could former Bills and Syracuse coach Doug Marrone have a shot at LSU job? [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The idea that Marrone might be a better fit at the college level is not farfetched. Him landing a job as high profile as LSU's might be a stretch, but the opinion of him in coaching circles seems to be higher than it is among the general public.'

Marker Bills coach Rex Ryan is not pleased with New England Patriots reporters [1:46 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'If Ryan wants to silence some critics, he could beat the Patriots this week at Gillette Stadium. Sure, Tom Brady won't be playing quarterback, and both of the Patriots' backups are banged up as well, so some will discount a win. That's a hell of a lot better than losing to Belichick's backup quarterback, though.'

Marker Bills defense on better pace than 2014 record-setting team [1:45 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: ' “It definitely feels good. It’s also so kudos to the defensive backs giving us time to get there. It’s a total team effort, it’s not just us,” defensive lineman Corbin Bryant said.'

Marker Rex Ryan hasn’t had much success recently against Patriots [1:44 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Ryan has a 3-11 regular-season record as a head coach against the Patriots, 4-11 counting the postseason, which includes his win with the Jets in the 2010 divisional round. His braggadocio often looks bad in hindsight, but Ryan insisted the way the Patriots do things could never work for him.'

Marker Rex Ryan: ‘Nobody likes anything in Boston’ [1:43 AM]
Boston Globe reports: '“Oh please. It’s been, like, seven or eight years,” said Ryan. “It’s the same every time you talk to them, so you have fun with them.”'

Marker Rex Ryan addresses his other rival -- the New England Patriots beat writers [1:42 AM]
Springfield Republican reports: 'He responded with, "I know that you guys always say that I'm obsessed with them and all that but you're obsessed with them, not me. I want to beat them but you're the ones who talk about them every single day."'

Marker Rex Ryan Expects Negativity From Patriots Media: ‘Nobody Likes Anything In Boston’ [1:41 AM]
NESN reports: '“Your conference call with the New England media (Wednesday), those don’t seem to be your favorite conference calls.”'

Marker Rex Ryan’s Erratic Act Is His Lone Consistency [1:40 AM]
CSN New England reports: 'My verbal syntax and wandering trains of thought aren’t evidence of an ordered mind either, so I do empathize with Rex. But neither am I the head coach of one of 32 entries in the NFL, a pretty high-profile league in which an ordered presentation from the guy in charge is usually a positive.'
