Buffalo Bills News - August 25, 2016

Marker Kathryn Smith, the NFL's first female full-time coach, is not thinking about history [1:42 PM]
SI reports: '“My focus really is on my job, coaching and doing the best I can at it,” Smith told me earlier this month at Bills training camp, at St. John Fisher College in suburban Rochester. “I do recognize that my role has some significance, but that has never been in the front of my mind, or been my motivation. I didn’t really look at it in that light until after the fact, sort of until everyone else started to.'

Marker The Buddy System [1:36 PM]
ESPN reports: 'But that's the reality of being a Ryan. You're born with extra-thick skin. By the time Rex and Rob were in second grade, they knew they wanted to be coaches, just like their dad. Around that same time, Jim also knew they'd be trouble.'

Marker Much-traveled Worthy thinks he’s found a home with Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It was a new area, and a different rehab process,” he said. “Having to train my core back up again, to be able to handle offensive lineman, that definitely was the biggest thing I had to overcome. It takes a long time to get back from certain types of injuries.”'

Marker Blanton tries to make Bills roster [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I thought it was a great opportunity with great coaches,” Blanton said. “You get to learn from a bevy of great coaches: Tim McDonald, Ed Reed, D.T. (Dennis Thurman), Rob Ryan, Rex Ryan. You can’t get a better group of guys to learn from.”'

Marker Bills RB Mike Gillislee named fantasy football breakout option in deep leagues [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Gillislee certainly flashed talent during his short stint with the Bills in 2015. In five games with Buffalo, the running back rushed for 267 yards and three touchdowns on 47 attempts, a 5.7 yard per carry average. He had carries of 30, 50 and 60 yards during the five games.'

Marker Buffalo Bills quarterback Cardale Jones is ready for Madden 17 challengers [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Jones will be tough to beat with 99 ratings across the board, and he won't take it easy on you. Remember, Jones once went to a children's hospital to visit patients and he ran up the score against one young boy named Jared.'

Marker Little’s success a good sign for Bills [1:55 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“I was happy for (Little),” Manuel said. “(Little) is one of those guys that is very hungry, always wanting the ball. When we were about to snap the ball he said, ‘Hey E, give me a look.’ I was the corner pressed up on him and gave him a chance.”'

Marker Injuries, suspensions plagued Bills at training camp [1:54 AM]
AP reports: '"It's been a piece of cake, really," Ryan said with a distinct roll of his eyes, when asked how taxing camp had been.'

Marker Somebody created a monster in Bills corner Stephon Gilmore [1:53 AM]
The Sporting News reports: '"You have to be mentally strong and believe in your worth. Sometimes you look at it and say, ‘why me.’ They can’t afford you or they want you at a certain number. It’s something you have to pray about, weigh on, take everybody’s advice that’s around you, in your corner. Because that’s sometimes a life-changing decision that you make."'

Marker Friday's game very important for these four bubble players [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The second-year player is making a push as of late to make the final roster after seemingly being buried down the depth chart. But it’s still going to be a very tough call at the position. O’Leary is the leading receiver at tight end this preseason, with 3 catches for 43 yards in the first two games. He does a lot of things well, but the problem is he doesn’t do anything exceptionally well. If he can put together another strong performance Friday night he could be on the right side of the bubble headed into the final week.'

Marker How to Watch Bills vs. Redskins [1:51 AM] reports: 'WKBW-TV Buffalo, WHAM-TV Rochester, WTVH-TV Syracuse.'

Marker Dareus photos make bad situation look worse [1:57 AM]

Marker Bryson Albright's roster push, the cornerback battle, an amazing photo [1:56 AM]

Buffalo News reports: 'Rookie quarterback Cardale Jones did not throw for a second straight practice as he deals with shoulder soreness following Saturday's game against the Giants. "Can't really give you a status for the game or not," Ryan said of the possibility of Jones playing against Washington on Friday. "We'll see how he is. His shoulder's sore. I don't have the extent of the injury. He took a hit in the game, but he played the rest of the game with it. Generally that's an indication that it's not a huge injury, I hope that's the case, that it's not serious."'

Marker Reggie Bush named as Buffalo Bills X-Factor by The Ringer [1:49 AM]

Marker Ronald Darby predicted to be Buffalo Bills' breakout player by ESPN [1:48 AM]

Marker ‘New Era’ a name we can live by [1:45 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'There’s no injustice or disrespect to Mr. Wilson with this name change. As Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly pointed out the other day, it’s 2016, not the 1980s. Still the face of Buffalo’s historic professional football franchise, Kelly spoke, arguably, for a collective Bills community when asked about the name change.'

Marker Bills receiver Marquise Goodwin sustains possible concussion [1:44 AM]

Marker 2016 Bills Training Camp Awards [1:41 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'What a change this has been from this time last year. After the 2015 version of training camp, Duke Williams had fallen behind so much that he was buried on the depth chart, and in a season that he was expected to push for a starting role, he fell remarkably short. That was 2015, and whatever changed for Duke Williams this summer, he needs to keep it going.'
