Marker Bills' third-round draft pick out for the year [2:01 PM]
ESPN reports: confirmed that Everett tore the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee in a Friday practice. The former University of Miami standout is expected to undergo surgery later this week, possibly as early as Wednesday. Team officials and Everett's agent, Brian Overstreet, are discussing which surgeon will perform the procedure. Given the typical recovery time for such injuries, the Bills will almost certainly, at some point before the season, place Everett, the 86th prospect chosen overall in the draft, on injured reserve.

Marker Anderson's wait may end [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Obviously this defense was very good last year, and Pat was a big part of that," Anderson said. "No one can replace Pat, but if Ron and I can step in and together fill the void he created and make the amount of plays that he did, we can have the same effect on the defense. If we can't do that, it's going to leave a hole in the defense, which could affect the entire unit. So it's important for us to do the best we can to ease the loss of Pat."'

Marker Parrish, King shine among rookies [8:52 AM]

Marker Bills Complete “Productive” Minicamp [6:32 PM] reports: '"I thought it was a success," said Losman. "I thought we had a great weekend. Offensive and defensively we competed every day and we got a lot accomplished. I think we took a huge step forward yet realized that we have a lot of work to go. It's definitely a good start."'

Marker Bills Team Report [6:23 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Justin Bannan experiment at offensive guard didn't last very long. The team has moved him back to defensive tackle, where he has played during his first three years in the league. The team was intrigued by the possibility of moving Bannan to offensive guard after he displayed impressive quickness and athleticism on pulls and trap plays in short yardage and goal like situations last season. But the team decided a position switch wasn't necessary after drafting G Justin Geisinger in the sixth round.'

Marker Mini Camp Ends With Some Good Performances [3:55 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Mike Mularkey says he'll go over all the practices on film before he decides how to move forward on the offensive line. All weekend long the starters were Mike Gandy, Bennie Anderson, Trey Teague, Chris Villarrial and the slimed down Mike Williams. His gut is almost gone and Mularkey says his RT spent much of the off season working with strength and conditioning coach Brad Roll.'

Marker Diminutive Parrish makes big impression on Bills [3:54 PM]
AP reports: '''Oh, he can run,'' veteran defensive back Troy Vincent said Sunday. ''He's obviously not 6-4, but he can play.'''

Buffalo News reports: 'It's funny how things happen. After listening to him on the air for some 40 years, I can now call him my friend and attest to his being a gentleman and a fine emissary for Western New York.'

Marker Bills tackling line vacancy [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Every year is a challenge, especially in this age of free agency when it's hard to keep guys together for more than a few years," Bills offensive line coach Jim McNally said Saturday during the Bills' three-day minicamp. "We've got a good group here. We just have to find the right guy and see if he can get the job done."'

Marker No diagnosis yet on Everett injury [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's got some swelling in it," Mularkey said after the Saturday afternoon session. "We're going to wait for that to go down, which I'm hoping is by the early part of the week, and re-evaluate it and see what the extent of the injury is."'

Marker Bills' second-round pick getting rave reviews [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: ' have seen the future and it's electric.'

Marker A leader emerges [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It reminded me a little of when I was with New England and I would have conversations with a young guy named Tom Brady," Milloy was saying after Buffalo's minicamp practice Saturday morning at the field house across the parking lot from Ralph Wilson Stadium. "J.P. was saying all the right things and seemed so eager to learn and get better and get out there and help the team. That's exactly how Brady was. I gave J.P. the same advice I gave Tom. I told him to do everything you can to prepare yourself for success when your opportunity comes."'

Marker Bills TE Everett misses practice with swollen knee [7:09 PM]
AP reports: 'He was briefly spotted watching Saturday morning's practice while walking on crutches and had a wrap on his left leg.'

Marker Everett's Knee Injury Is Still Unclear [7:08 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Josh Reed has been watching with a bad back. Ryan Neufeld has a groin strain while Lauvale Sape has a calf strain. Mularkey says this is a learning camp and there was no sense sending them out. He expects them in the end of May for the OTA's.'

Marker TE Everett Sidelined with Knee Injury [7:07 PM] reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey said after practice Saturday that the team will wait for the swelling to go down, possibly by mid-week, before evaluating it to determine the extent of the injury.'

Marker Losman loose in first practices as Bills' starter [3:05 PM]
AP reports: 'Besides having to learn the playbook, Losman's top priority has been to earn the respect of his teammates and coaches, and show he's capable of taking over the most high profile job in a football-mad town. So far so good.'

Marker Inside slant [3:01 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'A case of passing game overkill? When a team finishes ranked 27th in passing, probably not. But before exploring too deeply why Buffalo took a tight end with its second overall pick, it really came down to this simple fact: Coach Mike Mularkey couldn't have lived with himself had he let the 6-5, 241-pound Everett pass him by. Mularkey played nine seasons in the NFL as a tight end but he wasn't blessed with Everett's natural athleticism.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [3:00 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Unrestricted free agents: LS Bradford Banta; WR Drew Haddad; OT Marcus Price; OL Mike Pucillo (not tendered as RFA); FS Izell Reese.'

Marker Notes, quotes [2:59 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Scouts love it when one of "their" guys gets drafted and that was certainly the case for Bills scout Joe Haering. "This one's personal," he said after Buffalo took Vanderbilt guard/center Justin Geisinger in the sixth round. Geisinger's high school coach at Mt. Lebanon High in Pittsburgh was Chris Haering, Joe's nephew. "He's what we're looking for in the kind of people they want to build the offensive line around," Joe Haering said. "He's tough and very smart. He's a typical Pittsburgh kid, in a good way."'

Marker Losman grabs the reins on the first day [2:49 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: '“I think the three months has been a positive, no question about it,” Mularkey said after Friday’s afternoon session. “His presence in the huddle, his play-calling, his cadence — all the little things people take for granted, he’s doing very well right now. “I liked what I saw."

Marker Out of film room and on to field [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I was excited actually for the coaches to call the plays just so I could show the players I know my plays," Losman said. "Last year it was like, "OK, J.P.'s in. Here we go. Y'know. I don't know what he's going to call, and if he calls it, we don't know if it's going to be right.' "'
