He was recruited to Virginia Tech to be a tight end but ended up switching to quarterback. At 6-feet-6-inches tall and 250 pounds, Thomas certainly has the size for the position. The 24 rushing touchdowns he scored at Virginia Tech show he has the athleticism for it as well. He was also a standout basketball player in high school.'

Marker Buffalo Bills move up in Week 13 power rankings following consecutive wins [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Such an important win for the Bills on Sunday. At 6-5, they are still a game back in the wild-card race. Yet, two of the teams they trail are certainly vulnerable. The 7-4 Broncos still have games remaining against the Patriots, Chiefs and Raiders. The Dolphins are the weakest team in the NFL with seven wins or more. Buffalo will host Adam Gase's upstarts at New Era Field on Christmas Eve. Then Rex Ryan's outfit closes out the season in, of all places, MetLife Stadium against those lovable Jets.'

Marker Buffalo Bills OT Seantrel Henderson suspended 10 games for substance abuse violation [1:49 AM]

Marijuana is considered an effective treatment for Crohn's disease, but the NFL does not allow the use of marijuana under any circumstances.'

Marker Buffalo Bills tackle Henderson suspended 10 games by NFL [1:48 AM]

Marker Another Ugly Win [1:40 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Lest I be accused of being too negative, I’ll say that I’m happy the Bills won – a win is a win, even if it has warts. Fans were treated to the plays they’ve wanted to see all season long: the bomb to Sammy Watkins, the breakaway touchdown by LeSean McCoy, the heads-up scrambling of Tyrod Taylor. I know I was on my feet for those plays – it’s why I watch the Bills.'

Marker DT Bryant, WR Powell to I-R; Bills call up WR Lewis, DT Coleman [1:39 AM] reports: 'Bryant has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury suffered in the Week 8 loss to New England. The team’s medical staff obviously felt it was better to shut Bryant down for the remainder of the season rather than try to rehab the injury to get him back on the field. Bryant was instrumental in spelling Marcell Dareus at the nose tackle position while he was serving a league-imposed four game suspension, and then missed more time with hamstring and groin injuries.'

Marker Seantrel Henderson suspended by the league for 10 Games [1:38 AM] reports: 'Henderson’s suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.'

Marker Brownie Points - Week 12 [1:37 AM] reports: 'With Buffalo’s run game largely stuck in neutral, the Bills chose to go for it on a 4th-and-1 at the Jaguars 13-yard line with one minute left in the half. We don’t know for sure if the design of the play was for Jonathan Williams to follow fullback Jerome Feltonthrough the hole on the right side of Buffalo’s formation. But it was clear that Williams immediately saw the backside hole created by Cordy Glenn and Nick O’Leary on the left side as he took a direct line there on his carry.'

Marker Bills Today: A bigger role for Justin Hunter? [1:36 AM] reports: '“I think so,” said Ryan of more playing time for Hunter. “All he does is catch touchdowns. I remember that quote. Just like we had T-D Mike (Gillislee), now we’ve got TD Hunter, touchdown Hunter. He gives us a huge red zone threat, but also I think he does warrant more playing time. With some of the injuries we have there’s no reason he shouldn’t be able to play more.”'

Marker Bills still like playing the percentages [8:33 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s aggressive (and) we’re really good in the red zone,” he admitted. “But, even though the numbers are what they are (these two years with the longer attempts), I still feel pretty good about kicking an extra point, even though we missed (Sunday).”'

Marker Analysis: Offense picking defense up in red zone [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“That is an area in particular we have got to get better at,” Ryan said Monday. “We already studied where we are failing in the red zone. We would actually I think be amongst the leaders in the league from around the 20 all the way down into the 5, but it’s inside the 5 they scored 12 times in 22 plays.”'

Marker Raiders QB Derek Carr should be fine for Bills game, brother says [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“[He" target="_blank"> had to put a glove on just to give him a little more grip, because he can’t squeeze it as much as he would like to, but for the most part he’s good to go,” David Carr said.'

Marker Dareus has a great game – then injury forces him to leave it [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I guess that he kept telling the medical staff, ‘no, I can play,’ but then it’s like, I’m not going to put a guy out there that is clearly having some issues,” Bills coach Rex Ryan said. “I think it’s a strain of some kind, but we’ll know more of it as the week goes on.”'

Marker Rex Ryan: Bills fans weren't booing the team, they were booing me [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'OK, everyone got that? Fans weren't booing the offense, which gained 63 yards in the first half, or kicker Dan Carpenter, who missed another extra point. They were booing the coach.'

Marker LeSean McCoy, Sammy Watkins come through victory over Jacksonville unscathed [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I don't want to place any number on it, will he get more or less or whatever," the coach said. "We'll be smart with him. We'll be smart through the week, as well. We're not going to overdo him on the practice field. We need him healthy, and recongnizing that he's had a lot of time off – hasn't done a whole lot of football activity. We've got to balance that. Obviously we all want to get him on the field for the entire game, but I don't know if that's the best thing for him and our football team."'

Marker Why did the Bills go for two in the fourth quarter but not the third? Because the chart said so. [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But going for two in a situation when two points could get you within (or ahead by) a football-friendly number (such as 3, 7 or 8) has been more of a standard practice.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan: Raiders rise at last, while Bills fans dream [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'As weak as Oakland's defense has been, it's hard to imagine where they'd be without Mack. He was expected to make strides after getting 15 sacks last season. But he has faced constant double teams. Opponents scheme for him on every play, resorting to multiple reads, misdirections and chip blocks to keep Mack at bay.'

Marker Three up, three down following Buffalo's Week 12 win over Jacksonville [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Shaq Lawson: In 21 defensive snaps, he did not register a tackle. Outside of one pass rush in which he almost tipped a Blake Bortles pass, it’s hard to recall Lawson generating much pressure at all.'
