Rochester D&C reports: 'While that would seem to be a good thing, saving players from wear and tear, coaches like Bill Belichick think the CBA is having the exact opposite effect.

Marker Bills turning to Steward [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We’ve thrown a lot at this young man and we’re going to throw some more at him,” Ryan said after Saturday’s practice at St. John Fisher College. “Have him play some ‘MIKE’ also, which he doesn’t know about yet, but it’s going to be good.'

Marker Rookie receiver Dezmin Lewis must get physical [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I came out, competed, was physical — that’s what my coach talked to me about today — but I have to stay consistent with it,” Lewis said. “I can’t go back anymore. I can’t digress. I have to continue to progress and get better.”'

Marker Tyler Dunne's practice report: Day 16 [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You look at it as it is life, and you take what you’re given and you roll with and just do your best,” Manuel said. “I feel like I’ve been putting a good product out there on tape in these games and my main thing in practice is just be consistent.

Marker Some random thoughts on football: Big 30, college and the NFL [1:54 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'To which Dareus added, “We all know how I feel … we all know how the team feels. I want to be a part of the Buffalo Bills.

Marker Rex Ryan could make QB decision after Steelers game [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I think they've had a fair shake all the way through camp. I don't think there's any doubt in that," Ryan said. "Everybody's had a ton of reps and things. I think I was honest with that and we're still evaluating it, so we'll just continue."'

Marker Buffalo Bills hopeful Mario Butler shares how he overcame the brutal unsolved murder of his father [1:52 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'The family never got the closure of justice for his father’s killer, and they haven’t delved into Jeffery Butler’s struggles with drugs and divorce from Butler’s mother, he told the newspaper.

His son, who was 10 years old at the time, couldn’t sleep for three full days after the murder.'

Marker Ryan not close to naming starting quarterback [1:51 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Of course, "first string" would be a stretch. He had the No. 1 line, but all of the top skill position players were out injured.

Marker Bills' Ryan said all four QB's could play Saturday [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Ryan still will not say who will start Saturday and he did say all four could play. Will a decision be made afterwards? Ryan said, “We’ll see.

Marker Rex Ryan 'comfortable' with preseason schedule [1:48 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"You know what I think, I like the schedule the way it is because your players don’t play the entire game. Things happen, there’s no question, but they can happen in a controlled scrimmage situation, they can happen anytime," he said.'

Marker 7 Bills training camp observations: Day 16 [1:47 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'So, the rotation we’ve seen over the last two practices — with all three quarterbacks getting time with the first-team offense — is likely to be a precursor to what we’ll see Saturday against Pittsburgh. Who starts the game will likely be merely semantics, and it appears the Bills are putting a lot of stock in how each of the three men perform in that game.'

Marker LB Steward tapped to fill void left by Powell [1:46 AM] reports: '“I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemies,” Steward said of Powell’s injury. “But with [head coach Rex Ryan] it’s next man up … I’ve got to get out here and get the best work I can get and make sure I’m on top of my stuff because when my number’s called, I want to be ready.”'

Marker Top 3 things you need to know from Day 16 of Bills camp [1:45 AM] reports: '"I think collectively we’ve done a good job," said EJ Manuel. "Our biggest thing is being consistent and (quarterbacks) coach (David) Lee has done a great job coaching us up just same as all the coaches I think have done a great job. Coach (Greg) Roman’s done an awesome job as far as putting plays and putting us in good situations to have success out there, especially in these games. So the main thing in preseason games, you want to get the ball rolling—you want to get first downs, you want to execute, and obviously you want to win the game too. But I think we’ve all done a good job.”'

Marker Dareus’ past issues don’t justify Suh-like deal [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There’s always a risk involved with big contracts. The Dolphins took a chance on Suh, who has a history of dirty play on the field. Teams are willing to look past personal issues in the name of winning, but you can’t blame the Bills if they’re taking Dareus’s past into account.'

Marker Dareus tones it down on contract negotiations [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“People feel certain ways but at the same time, we’re going to get over that hill.”'

Marker Bills’ QB Report: Cassel goes first [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'During 11-on-11 work, Taylor was the first quarterback through with the starters. He completed a swing pass to Jackson before getting “sacked,” then on the next play completed a pass to Thigpen. His best throw came late in practice to Goodwin, who was wide open behind the defense for a long gain.'

Marker Marcell Dareus wants to 'be paid what I'm due' [1:55 AM]

Marker From orphan to NFL owner [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I don't remember anything before I was five," Kim said recently during a lengthy, exclusive interview at St. John Fisher College, where the NFL team she and her husband, Terry Pegula, now own was taking a break from practice. "I don't have any bad memories, nothing traumatic at all that I can think of. I just know somebody with the agency flew with me, and my parents picked me up at JFK, and that was the beginning of my life, really."'
