Marker Ralph Wilson Stadium’s shortcomings give weight to push for a new stadium [1:55 AM]

Marker Jordan Palmer helped Blake Bortles, but can he do the same for EJ Manuel? [9:42 AM]

Marker Bills scramble for answers to back up EJ [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“My conversation with Jordan was, ‘Hey, listen. I’m happy to see you. I’m happy to meet you. I’m going to give you an opportunity and you have an opportunity to get a position and we’re going to do whatever we can to get you ready for this game and play you.’ ”'

Marker Goodwin’s tweet shows how clueless he is [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Freshmen in college weren’t even born the last time the Bills’ actually won a playoff game, in 1995.

Marker Marrone heartened by Bills injury report [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The team’s work in practice and the fact that the squad is in generally good health made Marrone a happy man. “Not a lot of guys on the injury report.

Marker Finalists for site of a new Bills stadium are likely in Erie County [1:56 AM]

This is important not only to me, but to other elected officials, as well.”'

Marker Jordan Palmer in, Thad Lewis out for Bills [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Interestingly, it seems as if Palmer - who is the younger brother of Arizona starter and former Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer - is being brought in to serve more as a mentor to Manuel and Tuel than he is to compete for the backup job.'

Marker Bills-Lions game blacked out Thursday [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Although Thursdays game will not air live, it will be broadcast at 7:30 p.m. Friday on WHAM-TV (Channel 13) and at 2:30 p.m. Saturday on Time Warner Cable Sports Channel.'

Marker Buffalo Bills claim punter Jordan Gay off waivers [1:52 AM]

Marker Doug Marrone, Jordan Palmer talk about Bills' quarterback situation [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'We’ve given ourselves an opportunity, meaning that we’ve given ourselves an opportunity for what we’ve been watching on tape of everyone for Jordan to come in here and show us what he has. I think that’s something that, obviously, Doug (Whaley) and I have talked about quite a bit.'

Marker Buffalo Bills report 2014 season ticket sales are highest since 2009 [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Just three years ago, the Bills had the lowest season-ticket sales in recent history with 37,555. The Bills sold 36,354 season tickets back in 2001 but had a string of eight consecutive seasons of selling more than 42,000 season tickets leading up to 2011.'

Marker Cyril Richardson's play has Doug Marrone feeling more at ease with Chris Williams injury [1:49 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills preseason game against Detroit Lions will be blacked out on local TV [1:48 AM]

Detroit News reports: '“It’ll be cool,” Austin said. “I’ll go talk to him. He was always a cool guy to me. It’s going to be different, though, because now instead of seeing all of his schemes and tricks and whatnot in practice, I get to see it in a game.”'
