Buffalo Bills News - August 14, 2017

Marker Peterman takes second-team reps during Bills practice [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Yeah, it's fair to say he did earn it," McDermott said of Peterman working with the second team. "I mean, he moved the offense and did some good things. Like all of us, a lot of work to go yet, but he did some good things and he earned that."'

Buffalo News reports: '"Yeah, definitely don’t mind getting into the run game, tackling, causing fumbles, turnovers," the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Gaines said after his first practice with the Bills Sunday at St. John Fisher College.

Marker McDermott says Bills 'still concerned' that Glenn isn't practicing [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I've liked part of what I've see (from Dawkins)," McDermott said.

And that's typical, so there's not any reason for concern at this point. He's doing a good job.'

Marker Kelly feels Taylor's short-term pain from Watkins trade, but sees long-term gain for Bills [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I don't know whether it was because they had a feeling they might not be able to sign (Watkins) next year, but when you've got two firsts, two seconds and two thirds for next year, there's a lot of things you can do with that whether it's players, whether it's trades," Kelly said. "It gives you room to really have something on your plate for next year."'

Marker What we learned at Bills Camp: Day 13 [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's probably not anything catastrophic, but new Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews suffered a chest injury in his first practice with the team. He completed practice - it wasn't clear when he suffered the injury - but wasn't made available to media afterward because the chest was being evaluated.'

Marker What They Said: Coach Sean McDermott, CB E.J. Gaines, [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I thought they handled about as well as they could. They get the human element and I appreciate that. These are relationships that have been built up over time. Having said that, we’re a mentally tough football team and we’ll continue to increase in that area. The leadership did a phenomenal job and they understand that this is about winning. This is about building a football team. So, I was extremely proud of them.'

Marker Jordan Matthews suffers chest injury in first practice with Bills [1:51 AM]

Marker Jordan Matthews injury: Buffalo Bills WR suffers chest injury in first practice [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'For now, his injury seems like nothing to worry about but the Bills will learn more throughout the day and into tomorrow.'

Marker Why Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott gave Nathan Peterman reps with second team [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: ' "Just like everything else, everything's earned here, and that's the vision for every player, is to challenge for starting positions," McDermott said. "And that competition is healthy and whether it's the quarterback position or any position on this football team, competition is healthy and brings out the best in people."'

Marker New Buffalo Bills CB E.J. Gaines happy to be somewhere he's wanted [1:48 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills training camp day 13: Nathan Peterman promoted (10 observations) [1:46 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Speaking of Tate, he made the catch of camp on Sunday. During a Hail Mary drill, Peterman lofted a pass to the end zone. It looked like it was sailing over Tate's head, but he jumped up and reached back for a one-handed catch. It was reminiscent of Odell Beckham Jr.'s famous catch from a few years ago.'

Marker New faces, 5 observations from Day 13 of Buffalo Bills training camp on Sunday [1:45 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'In the past couple days alone, the Bills have a much different looking wide receiver depth chart. Matthews saw time with the first and second teams during his first practice, more so with the second team. During the scheme install session, Matthews stayed next to wide recievers coach Phil McGeoghan the entire time instead of taking part, asking questions. Mainly seeing time with the first team were Zay Jones and Anquan Boldin. Andre Holmes and Brandon Tate also spelled into the first-team as well. Matthews, Jones, and Boldin all saw time in the slot and outside during formations. Boldin notably stayed inside the most. '

Marker Receiver Matthews hurts chest in practice debut with Bills [1:44 AM]
AP reports: 'Matthews finished the two-hour practice on Sunday before being escorted off the field by a trainer. The Bills were unable to provide an update on the nature or severity of the injury because Matthews was still being evaluated.'

Marker Jordan Matthews suffers possible chest injury in 1st practice with Bills [1:43 AM]
ESPN reports: 'It is unclear when Matthews suffered the injury in Sunday's practice. He finished the session and later left the field with a trainer. He was not made available to reporters because of the injury.'

Marker Bills camp: Peterman moves up to No. 2 QB, WR Matthews injures chest in his first practice [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Not only did Peterman take No. 2 quarterback reps, he also had a very good practice. He made good decisions and mostly good throws, even threading the needle to Corey "Philly" Brown on a deep out right at the sidelines, just before the defender could get there. That’s a throw Peterman hasn’t connected on enough of throughout OTAs, minicamp, and this training camp. Hopefully he continues to be able to do that. He also led the second offense to a TD on a 2-minute drill, taking what the defense gave him, for the most part, but hitting Brandon Tate on a 22-yard TD strike for the score.'

Marker It's ok to trust this process [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Year after year, new general managers and head coaches alike have attempted to build a suitable home on a flawed foundation. They tried and tried, and every time they were seemingly presented with the same disappointing result. This regime has prioritized rebuilding the flawed foundation that’s been ignored for the better part of two decades, so why not be open to a new process?'

Marker Joe B: 7 Buffalo Bills training camp observations, Day 13 (8/13/17) [1:40 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'One of the biggest takeaways from the first preseason game of the year for the Bills was that the performance by backup quarterback T.J. Yates fell woefully short of what fans had been hoping for. His poor day, combined with a solid debut by rookie Nathan Peterman made the Bills take a longer look at their backup job, it would appear. Peterman, not Yates, took the vast majority of reps with the second-team offense on Sunday — only the second time he’s even taken a rep with that unit since the beginning of training camp, and that was in the first few days.'

Marker McDermott hopeful Glenn is ready for Week 1 [1:39 AM] reports: '“Dion (Dawkins) would potentially move over if we got that far,” said McDermott. “At this point in time we’re not going to do that. We’re going to get him comfortable at the right tackle position. But we do have to have a contingency plan in place and we feel the reps Dion built up on the left side over the spring should serve him well if needed.”'

Marker Top 3 things to know from Day 12 at Bills Camp [1:38 AM] reports: '“It was good. I’ve been taking reps with Ryan Groy and those linemen a little bit,” said Peterman. “It was a good transition and I was thankful for it.”'

Marker Bills Today: ESPN tabs Bills winner of trades [1:37 AM] reports: 'For Barnwell, the Bills were winners because of these picks. The Bills will be able to compete this season, as general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott have espoused many times this offseason. But, they will also have flexibility next offseason, as they look to continue to build the Bills into a contender.'

Marker Jordan Matthews eager to play with Tyrod Taylor, keep representing 2014 WR draft class [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'm still trying to dissect what's real and what's true as I move forward."'

Marker Trades send a clear message to the Bills that nobody's spot is secure – so who could be n [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“When you see a guy of that caliber get traded, it kind of makes you think about your job security, especially younger guys that are new to this business,” veteran center Eric Wood said. “There’s a lot of turnover in this business. They’re making decisions that they feel is best for this team.”'

Marker Sully's Mailbag: Wide range of reactions on Watkins trade [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Beane might have taken a harder line on Watkins when he became GM. He admitted on Friday that Sammy's injury history was a factor in the trade. Watkins was a diminished asset, and Beane was obviously open to moving him.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Bills Mailbag: Kyle Williams' future, the new WR depth chart, T.J. Yates [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Thanks to his dynamite camp so far, Streater also gets a spot on my projection. After that, I'm going with Andre Holmes and Brandon Tate, for now. Holmes is on shaky ground because of drops. I'm also interested in acquiring a compensatory third-round draft pick for the loss of Stephon Gilmore, and to do that the team would have to release Holmes, defensive end Ryan Davis and guard Vlad Ducasse. Those three players figured into the compensatory formula and would be the easiest to move on from.'

Marker McDermott sets the tone at Bills camp by having DJ's drop the tunes [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“It’s been great having them at practice and around campus,’’ McDermott said. “The players appreciate it, I appreciate it, it adds a bit of motivation each and every day which is great.’’'

Marker Buffalo Bills starting over at wide receiver and secondary in 2017 [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Buffalo's top four receivers from 2016 are gone and the only receivers who recorded a reception in Buffalo last season are Walter Powell and Brandon Tate. The two combined to catch 22 passes for 259 yards. Buffalo will look to replace their former top four with Zay Jones, Jordan Matthews, Anquan Boldin and Andre Holmes.'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign CB Jumal Rolle, release CB Charles James [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Rolle was originally signed by the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Catawba in 2013. He was released in late August by the team. The cornerback would spend time on the practice squads of the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers as a rookie before being promoted to Green Bay's 53-man roster. He'd return to the Packers' practice squad in 2014 before the Texans signed him to their main roster.'
