Marker Bills' Marrone mulls how to rotate remaining running backs [1:37 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"You know, I don't really know that yet," Marrone said. "It's not like we sit down and we say that. We're going to look at practice and set the plan and see where it goes.'

Marker Beleaguered Bills try a changing of the guard [1:36 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I'm definitely ready every week, preparing like I'm the starter," he said. "Being the backup who dresses on game day, you're always one play away from starting. So I prepare every week like I'm starting, and I'll be ready."'

Marker Bills give Urbik first team reps [1:35 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'With his move to the starting lineup, Urbik takes the place of rookie fifth-round selection Cyril Richardson. Richardson started the past four games but has largely been inefficient since taking over for the injured Chris Williams.'

Marker Kraig Urbik the likely change at left guard [1:34 AM] reports: '“He may. He may,” said Marrone of Urbik when asked if he’ll start at left guard on Sunday in place of rookie Cyril Richardson. “We’re trying to get better. We’re looking at a couple of options.”'

Marker A hero's welcome for Hogan [1:33 AM] reports: 'His leaping, twisting catch down by the goal line last week to convert a 2nd-and-20 in the waning seconds to set up the game-winning touchdown last Sunday has gained national attention. It was ranked number six on ESPN’s Top 10 NFL plays from Week 7, and ESPN Radio’s ‘Mike & Mike’ show ranked it the number one ‘Climb the Ladder Catch of the Week.’ As a result Hogan’s family is now expecting more than double the support for the upstart receiver and his Bills teammates. Not bad for a college lacrosse player.'

Marker Bills have had their share of good fortune [10:48 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Had Buffalo not dropped that game and quarterback E.J. Manuel struggled so mightily, Kyle Orton wouldn’t have taken over as starting QB. And while there’s no definitive proof, it can be easily speculated that the Bills wouldn’t have won at Detroit or on Sunday against the Vikings had the switch not been made.'

Marker Watkins turns on the electricity for Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It was one of the best moments I’ve had in the NFL,” said Watkins, who still has only a seven-game sample to choose from. “We made the play. We made it happen at the end of the game.”'

Marker It’s pretty clear defense will have to carry season [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Buffalo is eighth in points per game allowed, 11th in yards allowed per game, fourth against the run, first in sacks, tied for third in interceptions and third-down defense and sixth in fewest plays allowed of 20 yards or longer. The defense enabled them to win three games by a field goal or less.'

Marker Buffalo Bills place RB on injured reserve - designated to return [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'By placing him on this list, the Bills are holding out hope that Spiller will be able to return to the field at some point in 2014, though that's no guarantee.'

Marker Buffalo Bills to sign RB Phillip Tanner to add depth behind Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Tanner spent his first three seasons in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys after going undrafted out of Tennessee State. He has never rushed for more than 38 yards in a single game but could add value on special teams. Even with the signing of Tanner, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown figure to be the two running backs to receive most of the carries for the Bills in the absence of Jackson and Spiller.'

Marker Former NBA All-Star, 'Survivor' contestant arrested after Bills-Vikings game on Sunday [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Robinson, who went to Riverside High School in Buffalo, played 1,380 games in the NBA for five teams including the Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons.'

Marker Bills' Spiller has chance to return from injury [1:54 AM]
AP reports: 'The Bills kept their options open with Spiller by placing him on the reserve injured/designated to return list, a day after he had surgery to repair a collarbone injury. The designation means Spiller would have the chance to resume practicing in six weeks, and return to action two weeks later, when the Bills travel to play Oakland on Dec. 21.'

Marker Bills put Spiller on short-term IR [1:53 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Spiller underwent surgery Monday to repair a broken clavicle.'

Marker Spiller to IR; Bills sign RB Tanner [1:52 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Tanner played in 40 games spanning three seasons for the Dallas Cowboys. The 26-year-old had 149 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 56 carries and nine catches for 93 yards while he was with the Cowboys. '

Marker Spiller placed on short-term IR, Bills sign running back [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The short-term IR designation means the earliest the running back can return to the team for a game will be in Week 16 game on the road against the Oakland Raiders. By rule, the player must miss a minimum of eight weeks but is allowed to return to practice, if cleared by the medical staff, two weeks ahead of their official return to the field.'

Marker Watching Watkins [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In the New England game, Watkins was primarily lined up outside the numbers, and stayed away from the middle of the field so that Kyle Orton could find Scott Chandler, and other WRs. To a degree, the game plan worked. However, after the game that Watkins just put up Sunday, it'd be a crime for the Bills to ever give him another three-target game.'

Marker Bills Win Costly, Ugly Battle [1:49 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'And so we look forward to what has become a huge test for the Bills. Win this and the other games the Bills should win and the Bills could see the postseason, especially if they can win a game you think they’ll probably lose. Lose against the Jets and the team could freefall back to its normal near the bottom of the division spot.'

Marker 5 things to know about new Bills RB Phillip Tanner [1:48 AM] reports: 'During a preseason game against the Chargers in his rookie season in Dallas, Tanner went on a run so explosive that his helmet came off en route to the endzone. Unfortunately it didn’t count because of a new NFL rule that play is called dead once the ball carrier’s helmet comes off, but it was legendary in its own right and showcases Tanner’s athletic ability.'

Marker RB Phillip Tanner joins Bills, C.J. Spiller goes to IR-Return [1:47 AM] reports: 'The Buffalo Bills also announced that the team has placed RB C.J. Spiller on the Reserve/Injured, Designated for Return list.'

Marker 12 things to know after the Bills-Vikings game [1:46 AM] reports: 'All nine of Watkins’ receptions accounted for a first down or a touchdown.'

Marker Sammy Watkins a candidate for NFL Rookie of the Week [1:45 AM] reports: 'Watkins tallied nine catches for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns – all career-highs – in the Bills 17-16 comeback win over the Minnesota Vikings at Ralph Wilson Stadium. With just one second remaining, Watkins' TD grab near the boundary capped a 15-play, 80-yard drive that lifted the Bills to victory.'

Marker Boobie Dixon, Bryce Brown ready to step in [1:44 AM] reports: '“My main thing really is to get in learn the game plan and pick up where those guys left off,” said Brown. “It’s unfortunate that they went down and suffered injuries, but that’s why we compete in our room and have guys that can come in and take up where they left off.”'

Marker Dixon, Brown are Bills’ next backs up [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“First we’ve got to get the plan together,” he said. “We’ll just see what gives us the best opportunity and then we’ll just watch them in practice. I think we have a good feel for what Boobie can do in games. Bryce, we have a good feel for what he can do in practice and a little bit of a feel of what he’s been able to accomplish in games.”'

Marker Bills will see if trade for Brown pays off [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Well, here’s his chance. Doug Whaley traded for him because he felt Brown, who is 6-foot, 220 pounds, had the potential to be a star. Now, Brown gets what amounts to an audition for the role as the Bills’ featured back of the future.'

Marker Former NBA player among 42 arrested after Bills game [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Clifford R. Robinson, a former National Basketball Association all-star player, was among the 42 drivers arrested by State Police and Orchard Park Police on drunken driving and other charges after the Buffalo Bills game Sunday, State Police said.'

Marker Ralph Wilson’s staggering final gift will have enormous impact in Buffalo [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Much of the $1.4 billion that Terry and Kim Pegula paid for the Bills is being directed to the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, with instructions that the money be spent only in his hometown of Detroit and his adopted home of Buffalo. Thus, the Wilson Foundation will instantly have the clout to make a larger impact in Buffalo than any of this city’s other very generous, but smaller, foundations.'

Marker Broadcasting legend ‘Uncle Van’ is still the picture of joy [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If you looked at Van Miller’s face Sunday at halftime as that El Dorado convertible drove him around the stadium, I’d swear you could still see the joy of doing it.'

Marker Bryce Brown believes he can produce for Bills [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I know that I can perform and I can play on this level and I can play just as well as anybody who's been playing so far," Brown said Monday morning. "That's how I truly feel, but at the end of the day, I don't control who's active and who's not. Unfortunately it was me, but I don't want to focus on that because that's not important."'

Marker Kyle Orton's drive is one for the ages [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Rescuing what had been a pretty horrible day of offense for Buffalo, Orton marched the Bills 80 yards in 15 plays before hitting Sammy Watkins with the winning TD in the final second. Orton overcame two penalties, two sacks, a drop, a third-and-12, and a fourth-and-20. He completed 8 of 13 passes for 105 yards and looked in complete command of what he was doing. How refreshing was that?'

Marker Bryce Brown not short on confidence as opportunity emerges in Buffalo Bills backfield [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I think anybody that watches football or knows the game of football knows that I can play," Brown said. "I definitely don't have anything to prove to myself. I believe in myself. I believe in my capabilities. I know what I've done and I know I can do better."'
