Buffalo Bills News - August 23, 2016

Marker McCoy now feels like a total Buffalo Bill [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I need to go out and represent the name on the back of my jersey and also this franchise, so that’s the message I wanted to get across. I knew how that would unfold as far as with the Police and I just want to come out here and help my teammates.”'

Marker Bills RT Henderson Passes Physical [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Henderson was battling with Chron's disease, going back to last season. Henderson had been forced out of the lineup after ten games in 2015 due to the illness, and was replaced by Jordan Mills.'

Marker 7 Bills training camp observations: Day 16 (8/22/16) [1:42 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Henderson, although he wasn’t given the full workload, did quite a bit in working with the second-team offensive line at right tackle. He got reps in team drills every once and again, just to get his feet wet. Henderson started 26 games over the last two years for the Bills, and with Jordan Mills leaving quite a bit to be desired, he could factor into the discussion if all goes well.'

Marker Seantrel Henderson's return officially begins [1:41 AM] reports: '“It felt awesome. I’ve been out for about eight months now,” said Henderson. “It felt good though to be back out there with my teammates and getting back in a groove.”'

Marker Bills activate OL Henderson [1:40 AM] reports: 'A former seventh-round pick of the Bills in 2013, Henderson has been working on the side at training camp with the strength and conditioning staff to stay fit and add muscle back to his 6-7 frame. He is expected to practice with the team tonight.'

Marker Top 3 things you need to know from Day 16 at Bills Camp [1:39 AM] reports: 'Buffalo’s wide receiver position has been one of the most hotly contested through the course of training camp. A handful of wideouts have almost taken turns making plays in practice or in the team’s first two preseason games. On Monday night Walt Powell stepped forward.'

Marker Mostly good news for Bills in preseason win [10:42 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“This football team works extremely hard but with that, there’s no guarantee of success — we understand that. But it’s great to see the hard work pay off. I was extremely happy. That’s two weeks in a row I thought they played well.”'

Marker Backup quarterback Manuel waiting his turn [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“My focus right now is just finishing whatever I have here,” Manuel said after a recent training-camp practice at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford. “Whatever my situation is, wherever I’m at, I have to put myself in the best position moving forward, but also help this team win. That’s the most important thing.”'

Marker Updated 53-man roster projection following preseason game No. 2 [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Saturday's surprising release of Karlos Williams has brought some clarity to this position. Gillislee looked to have the inside track on the No. 2 job, with Bush serving more in a specialized role, but a possible concussion against the Giants could change things for Gillislee. Jonathan Williams has distanced himself from the others for the fourth job.'

Marker Three up, three down following Bills' shutout of Giants [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Marcell Dareus: Whether he's being dragged there or voluntarily checking himself in, a stint in a rehabilitation facility hopefully will be just what the Bills' talented but troubled defensive tackle needs to sort out his issues. Nobody, regardless of how much money they make or their position in life, is immune to needing help sometimes. Good for Dareus that he'll get it.'

Marker Williams' old Florida State teammates hurt by release [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“It hurt me man, it hurt me,” said Wilder. “I couldn’t reach out to him, but I know he’s going through it right now and he has a lot going on. It’s unfortunate to have someone like that get dismissed from the team, somebody that’s like my brother, somebody who’s been helping me the whole time since I’ve been here, putting in the hours studying the playbook and watching film. I’ve known him since 2010 so we’re like brothers, I lived with him for a minute. He’s gonna get a shot, it’s not like it’s over for him.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills' new era, same as old [1:55 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'The Bills have taken a slew of chances over the past few seasons on players with checkered pasts. Some have panned out. Williams is the latest who did not. Odds are, he won’t be the last. It’s just math. Wiser Bills fans won’t get fooled again. They know it’s probably just a matter of who’s next.'

Marker Hughes on a mission; Striker's chances diminishing [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'I don’t think Eric Striker is making the final 53. He’s been passed by several other outside LBs as far as practice reps and Saturday night he played the fourth fewest snaps on defense (9) and was only on the field for 5 special teams snaps. He just doesn’t have the length needed to play OLB at the NFL level, especially in Rex Ryan’s defense, and he’s not stout enough to move inside. He’d be the perfect practice squad player because he will go all-out every day and make others better, but I’m not sure if he’ll even have a look there since the Bills probably won’t feel he can replicate other defenders they will see on any given week, and that they just won’t view him as fitting in, so therefore not worth developing.'

Marker Seantrel Henderson, Mark Richt’s granddaughter share Crohn’s battle [11:02 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: 'There is no fear in the voice of Henderson, 24, now as he speaks about his condition. After a painful 12-month stretch with two surgeries and months of subsequent complications, he feels he has nearly recovered. He is on Buffalo’s non-football illness list, hoping to soon to resume full training.'

Marker Karlos Williams ate, not smoked, his way off roster [10:48 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“He was so far out of reach for his goal that it was going to take a lot of time for him to get to where he needed to be,” Whaley maintained, adding the team wanted to give him a chance to catch on with another team.'

Marker Marcell Dareus entering rehabilitation facility, no timetable for return to Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Everybody knows, in these processes, you don't want to put a timetable on it," Whaley said during a hastily arranged press-box gathering with reporters before the game.'

Marker Karlos Williams’ career in Buffalo comes to an abrupt end [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'When the Bills reported to training camp at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford at the end of July, one league source told The Buffalo News Williams weighed in 5 pounds heavier than he was in the spring.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Preseason Game Observations: Good 'D,' Tyrod sharp, Shady shiftier [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills' defense, with most of the starters playing through the first half, consistently shut down the Giants' starting offense, with Eli Manning at quarterback. The unit forced four turnovers, two of which led to a pair of touchdowns, and had three sacks.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Points After: Bills 21, Giants 0 [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'LeSean McCoy rushed five times for 0 yards – and gained 58 yards on four receptions, including a touchdown.'

Marker Judge the Bills by their actions, not their words [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Buffalo fans, desperate for success after 16 years of failure, have become more lenient when it comes to player behavior, as if character doesn’t matter compared to production on the field. I’ll say it again: It matters big time when dubious characters can’t get on the field because they’re smoking pot or causing trouble.'

Marker Bills are new reality series for Biermann [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I understand the big parts of the defense,” Biermann said, “and I’ll get the little ones as we go along.”'

Marker It’s not a given new stadium would be better than New Era Field [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A new stadium is inevitable. But what will a new stadium do for the average fan? Fewer seats? Yep. Better parking? No. Better tailgating downtown? I don’t think so. At least some modest seat licenses? For sure. Higher ticket prices? A hundred percent. There will be wider concourses and more gourmet food. There will be a dome. That’ll be the big selling point. (Maybe we don’t realize what we’re missing, but none of my friends complain about sitting outside.)'

Marker What They Said: Bills-Giants postgame transcripts of Rex Ryan, Tyrod Taylor, Eric Wood, Kyle William [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Obviously really good performance today, especially the defense. The 70 yard run or whatever it was, 100 yard run, that withstanding, I thought the effort was great.'

Marker Transcript of pregame comments by Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I think it’s just all on the field. I mean, if he’s not out there being able to perform and he can’t perform at the level we expect him to, then that’s on him. So it’s not a question. I always say the information makes the decision and the information was he wasn’t ready to play and guys underneath him surpassed him.'

Marker Bills captains Kyle Williams and Eric Wood react to release of Karlos Williams, Marcell Dareus' [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"There's a lot that went on from the time that we got to the stadium today, until we kicked off," center Eric Wood said. "Yeah, big news. Hope both of them learn from all this and come out as better people."'

Marker Sammy Watkins, Kyle Williams headline Bills' inactives vs. Giants [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The team has elected to keep Watkins on the sidelines for Saturday's second preseason game against the New York Giants at New Era Field. Watkins has returned to practice as he recovers from a broken foot suffered in the offseason, but the team has had him on a very specific plan to get him ready for the Sept. 11 season opener.'

Marker Big first half lifts Bills over Giants in 21-0 victory [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Really good performance today, especially the defense,” said coach Rex Ryan. “I thought the effort was great. We held them to one conversion on third down, and that was the first one of the game when we weren’t on the same page, but the rest of the time we were.”'

Marker Not all Bills 'family members' created equal [1:47 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'However, I did find general manager Doug Whaley’s explanation of the events a bit shallow. Dareus was referred to as a “family member” while Williams was given the ugly step-child treatment, even though their transgressions were quite similar in immaturity and stupidity.'

Marker Marcell Dareus leaves Bills to enter rehab facility [1:46 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Dareus, of course, was suspended one game in 2015 for violating the substance abuse program, then missed a test recently and that triggered a four-game suspension. Clearly, Dareus has some off-field problems, and it seems that given the fact he can’t play the first four regular-season games, the timing of his choice to enter rehab is a good one.'
