Marker Bills defense gets big boost [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I felt I ended pretty well last year,” Branch said. “I’m just glad the team thought I did pretty well as well by re-signing me for a couple more years. Do I think there’s more I could have done? Yeah. I think I probably fell into more of a groove towards the middle of the season, getting more stats-wise. I did my job beating up on the offensive linemen early, but I wasn’t getting very many tackles.”'

Marker Reed says wait helped him appreciate Hall’s call [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“These last nine years I just went about my business,” he said. “Of course it was always in the back of my mind because I heard it every year and there was times I was like, well, is it ever going to happen? I don’t know. I have to thank a lot of people for keeping me humble and telling me what the process is about. As every year went, I understood the process more, what you go through and what some of these other players went through waiting for that call.”'

Marker Back on the job [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The players serenaded coach Doug Marrone with a chorus of “Happy Birthday” after the practice. It was Marrone’s 50th.'

Marker Marcell Dareus makes Bills camp debut [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Truth be told, it is time to stop talking about Dareus' off-field transgressions, and the focus now must be on what Dareus does on the field. Although the Bills have installed a new defensive scheme under coordinator Jim Schwartz, Marrone isn't worried that Dareus is far behind his teammates from a mental perspective. According to Marrone, the duties of the defensive linemen are pretty clear cut regardless of the scheme.'

Marker Marcell Dareus returns with a bang and 5 other observations from Bills training camp [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'For a seventh-round pick starting at left tackle in his first training camp, Seantrel Henderson hasn't looked half bad in the past week. There are still time where blocking Jerry Hughes and Mario Williams looks to be a bit too much for him to handle, but he also flattened Hughes a few times on Friday and has shown the strength and movement skills that made him the No. 1 high school recruit in the country once upon a time.'

Marker Fred Jackson leaves Bills' practice with apparent lower body injury [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Jackson limped off the field during the 11-on-11 portion of practice and was checked out by trainers before being escorted to the locker room. He wasn't walking with a limp as he got to the locker room and didn't need to be carted off, both of which are good signs.'

Marker Bills defensive tackle Alan Branch anxious to take field after passing conditioning test [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I feel anxious, man," Branch said after the Bills' walkthrough on Friday. "I'm ready to get out there and put the pads on. That's what players go out there and do. They don't want to go out there in helmets and shorts. I'm pretty excited to go out there and start banging heads."'

Marker Robert Woods happy to share spotlight, targets with Sammy Watkins [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"You definitely want a guy like that on your team on the team to help in coverage in critical situations to make plays," Woods said. "He's definitely shown that so far and hopefully he continues to show it."'

Marker Bills activate LB Johnson, sign a CB [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'To make room for Felder on the roster, the Bills released defensive tackle Colby Way from the team.

He was likely made expendable with the signing of defensive tackle Landon Cohen earlier in the week.'

Marker Fred Jackson injured at Bills practice Friday [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The team's training staff examined him for roughly 10 minutes and then eventually walked him back to the locker room.

Marker Dareus gets back on the field for Bills [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“At this point in time, I think this will probably be the end of it I would think. He's back out here on the field, he passed his conditioning test, we're ready to go,” Williams said. “We'll see how everything pans out with all the off field stuff, I'm sure there will be a day for that. But, right now, the good thing about it is he's in pads, we're practicing and he's ready to go.”'

Marker Bills training camp observations: Day 5 [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Last year’s training camp showed that defensive end Jerry Hughes had a definite ability in rushing the passer, often beating his opponent on the offensive line to get into the backfield. That trend has continued into 2014, with seventh-round rookie left tackle Seantrel Henderson taking the brunt of the Hughes-led punishment. Hughes made Henderson look silly on a couple of plays during team drills, with one outside-in move that looked effortless on the defensive end’s part. Of course, he is going up against a rookie in practice so there’s no use in projecting a bigger season than last year just yet, but Hughes has been a consistent, disruptive force for the defense thus far.'

Marker Bills sign cornerback [1:44 AM] reports: 'Felder entered the league in 2012 as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings. The 5-11, 200 pound Nicholls State product spent time during the 2012 season on the Vikings practice squad prior to joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad in 2013. Felder, who finished his collegiate career ranking 4th in Nicholls State school history with 12 INTs, is 23 years old and a native of McComb, Miss.'

Marker 4 things to take from friday's practice [1:43 AM] reports: 'In the first few practices of training camp EJ Manuel and Robert Woods weren’t connecting in the passing game as often as they would like. That began to change in Wednesday’s morning practice earlier in the week and continued to progress Friday night. “I think we’re meshing very well,” said Manuel. “Woody runs great routes, gets open. It’s just my job to give him a chance to make a play.”'
