Marker Bills' Cieslak goes full tilt to honor his late friend [5:05 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'And the events of June 29, 2003. That was the day Cieslak truly learned to make each day count. To count his blessings. To not take anything for granted.'

Marker Parrish suffers right wrist injury [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I don't know what the emotion is until I find out the facts about (the injury)," Mularkey said. "I'm sorry he missed practice today. These practices are important to him, but there are going to be injuries sooner or later. If he can't play, we have other guys who will have opportunities to shine."'

Marker Boredom now could lead to excitement later [5:03 AM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'Remember the bickering Buffalo Bills of 1989 — the team that would argue about anything, even the color of the artificial turf at what was then Rich Stadium? Well, those days are gone. This year’s version of the Buffalo Bills is coming across as just one big happy family — the kind that Ward and June Cleaver would envy.'

Marker Parrish Status Uncertain [5:02 AM] reports: '"What do we lose without roscoe," asked quarterback J.P. Losman? "His energy, his quickness, his third down presence there. If somebody wants to guard him one on one it's very, very tough. So that definitely hurts us. But people get hurt all the time in the NFL and good teams are able to overcome it."'

Marker Moorman Garners Humanitarian Award [10:42 PM] reports: 'He also has established The PUNT Foundation, whose mission is to support pediatric cancer research, treatment and social programs. He and his wife, Amber, make regular visits to the Roswell Park Cancer Institute to visit children with cancer and his events help benefit Carly's Club and the programs they provide for families affected by cancer.'

Marker Greer Working to Secure Nickel Spot [10:41 PM] reports: '"I don't want to look at this opportunity five or ten years from now at what I could've done or what I should've done," Greer said after a recent practice. "I know that right now I can seize this opportunity and make the best of it."'

Marker Status of Roscoe's Wrist Unknown [10:41 PM] reports: '"I was definitely one of the guys that wanted to see [Roscoe play]," said 10-year veteran Eric Moulds. "In Green Bay you got to see flashes of what type of player he is going to be. Until you really get into a game situation it's hard to tell. I think it's a step back for him but the way he handles it, by coming out and working hard, he'll be all right."'

Marker Bills Injured WR Misses Practice [10:40 PM]
WROC-TV reports: '"I don't know what the emotion is until I find out the facts about it," said Mularkey. "I'm sorry he missed a practice today. A lot of these practices are going to be important to him."'

Marker Bills WR Parrish expected to miss preseason opener [10:40 PM]
AP reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey said he doesn't know the extent of the injury. He said Parrish traveled to Buffalo -- about a 90-minute drive west of training camp in suburban Rochester -- to review test results with the team's medical director, Dr. John Marzo. That's an indication the injury is serious. Mularkey, however, would only say that it's unlikely Parrish will play this weekend.'

Marker Bills place rookie TE Everett on PUP list [10:38 PM]
AP reports: 'Selected 86th overall out of Miami, Everett will continue working out on his own and could begin practicing midway through the season. That's when the team will determine whether to activate him or have him sit out the rest of the year.'

Marker Buffalo (0-0) at Indianapolis (0-1) [10:37 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'For Buffalo, all eyes will be on second-year starting quarterback J.P. Losman, who is expected to take the reins of the offense this season. Losman, a first- round draft pick out of Tulane in 2005, has just five regular season pass attempts to his credit as an NFL player. Losman is likely to play at least the first quarter before yielding to backups Kelly Holcomb and Shane Matthews. Holcomb, the former starting QB in Cleveland, will be suiting up as a Buffalo Bill for the first time. The quarterbacks will not have second-round draft choice Roscoe Parrish at their disposal on Saturday, as Parrish is nursing a sore hand. Elsewhere on offense, Buffalo will be unveiling a new left side of the line, with former Bear Mike Gandy taking over at tackle and former Raven Bennie Anderson playing the guard slot.'

Marker Practice changeup makes for festive evening [12:29 PM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: '“There were times when I thought the offensive line was moving,” Mularkey remarked. “I think both sides of the ball were successful tonight. It was good work. We needed to work on the play-action with our defense. We’ll do that one more time before we go into the season.”'

Marker Bills O-line depth put to the test [12:28 PM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: 'Peters saw time at both offensive line and tight end as a rookie last season. He played tight end at Arkansas and is working his first camp as a full-time offensive lineman. “It was difficult getting the technique, all the blitzes and the reads,” said Peters. “I stayed here in Buffalo watching film and going over technique. Coach McNally knows the game. I just listen to him and take that onto the field.”'

Marker Remembering Hunter Kelly [12:27 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I remember watching the candlelight vigils held on television, seeing so many people praying with Hunter and his family. I was struck by the strength of the little boy who continued to surpass the expectations of doctors year after year. I was struck by Jim Kelly's love and passion for his son that showed he was a loving father, more than anything else. His strength of character was never portrayed greater than when he stood smiling at his wife, two daughters, and the boy he called "my soldier."'

Marker Kelly will be grand marshal for Busch race [12:14 PM]
Elmira Star Gazette reports: 'Kelly, who founded Hunter's Hope Foundation with his wife, plans to address the crowd about the foundation during pre-race ceremonies Saturday.'

Marker Moorman honored to help [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Since Moorman came to Buffalo in 2001, he and his wife, Amber, have been active in helping pediatric cancer patients at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and at Women and Children's Hospital. "I don't do these things for awards or anything like that," Moorman said. "We got involved in Roswell because it became our passion to be involved with the kids and try to make a difference. For this to come up, it's really an honor."'

Marker Clements isn't elite in play, pay [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'He's a good player and a proven playmaker, but he's not an elite shut-down corner. Managing an NFL payroll is a delicate task. Donahoe hates overpaying for players; he should be careful about investing too much in Clements. No doubt, Donahoe will try to sign Clements early, as he did last year with Aaron Schobel.'

Marker Update today on Parrish's injury [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Parrish was injured during one-on-one passing drills. He and cornerback Jabari Greer each jumped for a long pass, and Parrish came down hard onto the new synthetic surface at Growney Stadium. A visibly upset Parrish got up holding his right hand and trainer Bud Carpenter escorted him to the locker room.'

Marker Parrish adds elusiveness and more to Bills offense [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"Whatever they want, I'll do it," he was saying after a recent practice at St. John Fisher College while signing autographs for seemingly every spectator at Growney Stadium. "I'm confident I can still throw the football pretty good."'

Marker Parrish Injures Arm [5:00 AM] reports: '"Anytime somebody doesn't finish a practice you always worry," said head coach Mike Mularkey.'

Marker Rookie Receiver Parrish Injures Wrist [4:59 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'It happened about an hour into the scheduled two-hour practice, when Parrish was running step-for-step with cornerback Jabari Greer up the right hash mark. Diving headfirst for a 40-yard pass thrown by Kelly Holcomb, Parrish missed the overthrown ball and seemed to land awkwardly on his wrist.'

Marker Moulds Energized for 10th NFL Season [4:58 AM] reports: '"I train with young guys," Moulds said after Wednesday evening's practice at St. John Fisher. "A lot of veteran players try to train with guys their own age, guys in their 30s. But I try to train with guys that are in their early twenties like Lee [Evans] and those guys who have got so much energy. They get you into your workouts. If you think you're young and you workout with young people, you'll stay young."'

Marker Team Surprise, Parrish Injured [4:57 AM] reports: 'Head coach Mike Mularkey rewarded the team for a fast start at training camp by allowing them to take in a movie - instead of practice. The players had a choice of nine different movies and Mularkey joked they also had their pick at the concession stand as well.'

Marker Parrish is catching on with the Bills [9:49 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Hurricanes’ coach Larry Coker, who has a vast background for comparison, called the 5-9, 168-pound Parrish, “the most exciting player I’ve ever coached.” He started only 10 of 81 games for Miami, but averaged 16 yards on 81 receptions and scored 11 touchdowns while returning punts at a 13-yard clip and averaging 10 yards per carry every time he was handed the ball.'

Marker Bills Training Camp: Wednesday’s report [9:42 PM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'You know the old saying… you can never be too rich, too thin or have too many cornerbacks. Or something like that. The Bills may have found a talented backup cornerback in the draft this year and so far fifth round pick Eric King has had a good camp and earned significant playing time as a backup and a nickel and dime corner.'

Marker Line Looking Good [9:33 PM] reports: 'Says Williams, "Last year was a big stepping stone year for me. I felt that I finished off strong. I just want to start where I left off and build on top of that. So I think I'm on the right track as far as here in training camp."'

Marker NFL preview: Buffalo Bills [9:29 PM] reports: 'During the final five weeks, the Bills play at Miami, host New England and Denver, and close with road games against Cincinnati and the Jets. So a good first half of the season is imperative if the Bills are going to break .500 and prove to be serious challengers to the Patriots.'

Marker Parrish Hurt In Practice [9:23 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'We'll have more details when they become available.'

Marker Bills rookie WR Parrish hurts right wrist [9:21 PM]
AP reports: 'Rookie receiver Roscoe Parrish grimaced in pain as he was led off the field after he hurt his right hand during a Buffalo Bills practice Wednesday night. The extent of the injury was not immediately known, but it could be a blow for the Bills, who had been impressed by the second-round draft pick's performance since camp opened July 30.'

Marker Venice's Losman Is An NFL Starter Now [5:10 PM]
Santa Monica Mirror reports: 'A lot happened between Venice High and last Saturday, when the Bills opened training camp with Losman officially taking over the position. A lot worth reviewing. A lot that makes for a dramatic tale.'
