Buffalo Bills News - August 25, 2004

Marker Bills Notebook [12:46 PM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'The Colts are expected to play their starters into the third quarter against the Bills. "If you want to get your dress rehearsal week in, Week 3 is kind of the way to go,” Colts coach Tony Dungy said. “It’s really the week we like to get geared in and playing well."'

Marker Teague Not Worried About O-Line [12:43 PM] reports: '"These things happen in camp all the time," Teague said. "People get banged up over the course of the four weeks here and coaches constantly rotate guys to get a look at how they play. It's a physical sport, especially up front. It's all part of the game and I don't think there's anything to worry about."'

Marker Bills QB Losman to have surgery on broken leg [12:42 PM]
AP reports: 'Bills president Tom Donahoe said it's premature to discuss whether the team will bring in an additional quarterback or determine whether to end Losman's season by placing him on the injured reserve list.'

Marker The billboard [11:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I look at it as taking advantage of an opportunity," McGahee said Tuesday. "Really, it's just another game. I've started in practice with the (first team) before, but it wasn't nothing. But this is a game, and the only difference is this is more competitive."'

Marker Losman out with fractured fibula [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The injury is similar to the one suffered last year by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, who fractured his right fibula during the preseason. Vick missed 12 games.'

Marker Losman breaks leg in practice [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It was an accident," Mularkey said. "Troy isn't going to try and hurt anybody, and J.P., he loosened up at the end (of the play), and you can't do that."'

Marker Bills' special teams using starters [5:09 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We're going to put the best guys out there, period," Mularkey said. "There's nothing that says a starter is relieved of duty because he's playing first, second and third down. Fourth down is no different."'

Marker Bills rookie QB Losman breaks leg [5:08 AM]
Sportsticker reports: '"I was running and keeping him from going out of bounds and he was cutting back and our shoulder pads just barely grazed on his cutback," Vincent said. "At the same time he planted, I think our shoulder pads met."'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:07 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Bills ranked 31st in punt returns last year and were inconsistent on kickoff returns. Antonio Brown, who held those duties most of 2003, could lose both jobs. WR Josh Reed opened the preseason as the No. 1 kickoff returner, and Terrence McGee had 85- and 34-yard kick returns in the second preseason game. CB Nate Clements has the inside track on handling punts, though the team would prefer not to use a starter there.'

Marker Bills' Losman Breaks Leg [10:24 PM]
WROC-TV reports: 'The injury occurred with 25 minutes to go in the afternoon workout. Losman was hit by veteran cornerback Troy Vincent. The rookie out of Tulane was carted off the field, and was later seen being helped from a wheelchair into a car.'

Marker Losman out with fractured fibula [10:03 PM] reports: 'Losman was slated to back up starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe this season. Travis Brown will likely move into the No. 2 position behind Bledsoe while Losman is recovering. The Bills will probably bring in another quarterback to either compete with Brown or to occupy the No. 3 role.'

Marker Broken Leg Sidelines Losman [9:59 PM] reports: 'The rookie was finishing a run during a two-minute drill when the hit occured. Trainers attended to him before Losman was carted off.'

Marker Losman breaks leg, out indefinitely [9:57 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Vincent told WGR that the collision between he and Losman was purely accidental and that he would never do anything intentionally to harm a teammate.'

Marker Losman Suffers Broken Leg, Out Indefinitely [9:08 PM] reports: 'Rookie quarterback J.P. Losman has suffered a broken leg and will be out indefinitely. Such injuries typically require a recovery time of 8-12 weeks.'

Marker Losman Hit, Carted Off [9:06 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'During the play, Losman ran around end only to be hit with a hard shoulder from veteran Troy Vincent. Losman had to be helped to his feet, but clearly was in pain. Vincent said after practice that the hit was not intentional.'

Marker QB likely will miss half the season [8:48 PM]
ESPN reports: First-round draft choice J.P. Losman, the heir apparent to Drew Bledsoe's starting job with the Buffalo Bills, will likely miss at least the first half of his rookie season, after the quarterback suffered a fractured left fibula during a Tuesday practice session.

Marker Bills QB Losman injured in practice [5:03 PM]
AP reports: 'Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback J.P. Losman was taken off the field Tuesday afternoon with an apparent lower left leg injury.'

Marker Summer sensations: Ten players who've exceeded expectations so far in the preseason [3:47 PM]
CNN/SI reports: For now, he's only getting third-team mop-up work behind starter Drew Bledsoe and backup Travis Brown. But the Bills rookie has already given us a glimpse of why he's the quarterback of the future in Buffalo. Losman is 9-of-11 for 78 yards and has a 96.2 passer rating, and he has handled the offense with an impressive command and poise. But what the Bills really believe sets him apart from this year's other first-round quarterbacks is his feet. Losman has gained 80 yards on seven scrambles, and he has made plays to keep drives alive. In his five drives, the Bills have scored three field goals, missed on another field goal attempt and fumbled the ball away once.

Marker Bills may sit Henry as precaution [2:38 PM]
ESPN reports: "It's not official, but I'm not going to push him to play if there's any pain at all," Mularkey said. "I'd maybe have a different answer if we were in the regular season. But I'm not going to push that right now. It's just to get him back full strength."

Marker Bills Notebook [1:27 PM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'Mularkey said some of the players may have been trying too hard to impress the coaching staff. “They’re trying to play hard,” he said. “It was just the timing of it. If there’s a gray area (as to if it’s a penalty), they just have to pull back.”'

Marker Remember It’s Only Preseason [12:42 PM] reports: 'The penalties were not as big of an issue as some people made them out to be.'

Marker Recent push lifts season-ticket base [10:17 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'Also, the Colts have made available several hundred additional single-game tickets for the eight regular-season home games, including the Sept. 26 home opener in the RCA Dome against Green Bay. The tickets had been held back for possible season-ticket sales. Fans wishing to purchase tickets for the Packers game still must buy a similarly-priced ticket for Saturday's preseason game with Buffalo.'

Marker Bledsoe, Warner among NFL's most overpaid [10:16 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Bledsoe's $8.75 million salary might rank in the bottom half among starting quarterbacks, but it's still big money for someone coming off the least-productive full season of his 11-year career.'

Marker Gildon's big test could come against the Colts [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We need to get a better feel of how he's fitting in," Mularkey said. "We need to give him a chance. He hasn't gotten enough reps, and we'll probably do that more in this game."'

Marker The billboard [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills' offense ran no-huddle drills against a nickel package.'

Marker Healthy arm should improve Lindell's foot [5:23 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"You can certainly learn a lot of stuff, and every kick in a game is big, so it was a good experience that way," Lindell said. "But I definitely plan to be better."'

Marker Sidelined Henry stays patient while recovering from injury [5:22 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"To miss (practice and probably Saturday's game) is very disappointing, but there is no reason at all to rush back," he said. "If it was a regular season game and they needed me, I would be back."'

August 23, 2004

Marker Rain, Slippery Conditions Shorten Practice [9:19 PM] reports: '"I've been training the whole off-season to get to this point and to miss is disappointing," said Henry. "I know I have to get healthy and guys are looking for me to be ready for the opener."'

Marker Mularkey said Mistakes Contributed to Loss [9:18 PM] reports: '"They need to understand that when you play physical football the other team is probably going to retaliate and you've got to walk away and get back into the huddle," Mularkey said after his team fell to the Titans, 16-15. "I have not done a good job of stressing that."'

Marker Henry Day to Day [9:17 PM] reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey may keep Henry out of this week's game against the Colts as a precaution. Willis McGahee worked with the first team and is in line to make his first NFL start this weekend.'
