The Sports Xchange reports: '"Quarterbacks, especially young ones, are very streaky," said Marrone, who is trying his best to defend his second-year starter, and did so after the last game by saying two of the four incompletions Manuel threw were quasi drops.

I think it could've been both."'

Marker Bills' Watkins ''good to go,'' per report [1:45 AM]

Marker Bills 53-man roster projection: 8/29 [1:40 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills' quarterback position is nearly one of the worst in the league in terms of depth. Thad Lewis was a disappointment in the summer, Jeff Tuel hasn't taken the next step the Bills were hoping for and Jordan Palmer didn't show the necessary arm strength against backups to prove he was worthy of a roster spot. Even though the Bills might only keep two quarterbacks initially, don't expect only Manuel and Tuel to make up this roster. There has to be an additional move coming, they can't go into the season with their current trio, or in this case, duo.'

Marker LS Garrison Sanborn signs extension with Bills [1:39 AM] reports: 'Sanborn has been the team’s primary long snapper for the past five seasons. The 6-1, 240-pound Florida State product has played in all 80 games since 2009.'

Marker Disturbing performance at 'The Ralph' [12:16 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'A friends and family crowd generously listed at 57,247 — the newly-refurbished stadium was barely half full — saw nary a single indication that this team, on the verge of being sold, is one bit ready to take on the Bears in Chicago a week from Sunday.'

Marker Jeff Tuel, T.J. Graham among 5 Buffalo Bills on bubble [8:26 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Marrone insists Brian Moorman has been punting well in practice, but games have been a different story for the veteran.

Marker Toughest stretch at end [1:57 AM]
