Buffalo Bills News - August 16, 2017

Marker Former Bill James Lofton joins CBS's NFL lineup as networks announce broadcast teams [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Steve Tasker's primary assignments are with Tom McCarthy and Steve Beuerlein, though he sometimes joins other teams, as in Week One when the Bills host the New York Jets. CBS' lineup for that game has Tasker alongside Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon.'

Marker Glenn has injection that Bills hope will 'knock out' foot soreness [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The coach said Glenn, who has been out of practice for a week, is listed as "week-to-week" and won't play in Thursday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Glenn also missed last Thursday night's preseason-opener against the Minnesota Vikings.'

Marker Ronald Darby to make Eagles preseason debut vs. Bills [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Darby, the Bills' second-round draft pick from Florida State in 2015, joined the Eagles last Friday as part of a trade that sent wide receiver Jordan Matthews from Philadelphia to Buffalo. Matthews won't play Thursday night due to the chip fracture in his sternum that he suffered in his very first practice with the Bills.'

Marker Bills not ready to move Dion Dawkins to left tackle just yet [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Where we are right now is getting Dion comfortable at the right side," McDermott said. "As I mentioned earlier in the week, we have a little bit of a foundation built up at the left side there, so we just have to stay on top of it moving forward."'

Marker suggests a Bills-Chiefs trade involving LB Reggie Ragland would 'help all parties' [1:48 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Hand-picked by Rex Ryan, Ragland was identified as an ideal fit for the ex-Buffalo coach's 3-4 scheme," writes Sessler, who didn't indicate what the Bills would get back in his potential trade – the obvious key consideration for Beane if any deal were to be struck. "In Sean McDermott's 4-3 operation, though, the hard-hitting Alabama star has failed to click, riding with the third-team defense in recent days. Ragland's rookie season was washed away by a knee injury, but the 2016 second-rounder is filled with promise as an old-school, aggressive defender who fearlessly seeks out ball carriers. I'd love to see him grow in Kansas City, where the team could use an understudy to Derrick Johnson, who turns 35 this November. Few teams do a better job of developing young defenders -- the kind of attention Ragland desperately needs."'

Marker Jerry Sullivan: Will Shady McCoy be all-in after the Watkins trade? [1:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Guys might not be so inclined to lay it on the line for the new coach. I can't imagine that Tyrod Taylor is happy about losing his best wideout and being left with a glut of slot receivers. But I'm especially curious about running back LeSean McCoy, who must have another huge year if the Bills hope to have any kind of success.'

Marker Bills' summer in Rochester ends just when it was getting good [1:46 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'McDermott, who didn’t win over any hearts with his 8:45 a.m. practices and preference for using a small auxiliary field that kept fans and sponsors (egad) at bay, was polite and succinct with his closing remarks, saying it was great to see “our fans in this part of the country."'

Marker Glenn's bothersome foot makes him 'week to week' for Bills [1:45 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Well the doctors are hopeful, we’re all hopeful,’’ McDermott said. “That said, it’s really week to week at this point, and we hope to get him back as soon as possible.’’'

Marker Bills training camp isn't going anywhere: It's staying at St. John Fisher [1:44 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I don’t know where they’re coming from, other than camp is a little bit shorter this year, so I understand that,” Brandon said in an exclusive interview with the Democrat and Chronicle. “We just signed a new agreement in October, a five-year extension with Fisher. We’re committed to Rochester; it’s a very important market to us. We’re committed to St. John Fisher, and we look forward to a partnership here for many, many years to come.”'

Marker Cordy Glenn injury: Buffalo Bills OT suffers another setback with foot, gets injection [1:43 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'At this point, Glenn's foot has been an issue for months. Without him, the Bills would be down to rookie Dion Dawkins at left tackle. He has spent most of camp working at right tackle after spending the spring working at left tackle. While the Bills are hopeful that Glenn can return for Week 1, that's not a guarantee.'

Marker Buffalo Bills training camp day 15: Anquan Boldin heating up (10 observations) [1:42 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'For the second straight practice, Anquan Boldin was Tyrod Taylor's most-targeted wide receiver. Taylor threw Boldin's way five times during practice and Boldin caught all five of those passes. He's starting to look like the team's primary option in the passing game with Sammy Watkins gone and Jordan Matthews injured. Boldin will make his preseason debut on Thursday.'

Marker Bills Rookie QB Nathan Peterman is mature beyond his years [1:41 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Without grabbing a degree, Peterman could transfer but would have to sit out a year. So he did, earning his undergraduate degree in communications. Peterman added an MBA from Pittsburgh as well. In an era where many leave college a year early to chase the NFL, Peterman has two degrees.'

Marker Source: Recently traded Bills player not a big Buffalo fan [1:40 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Darby said there "wasn't much to do" in Buffalo, preferring Canada and the 90-minute drive to Toronto, Ontario, for recreation.'

Marker Bills tackle Cordy Glenn listed week to week with sore foot [1:39 AM]
AP reports: '"The doctors are hopeful. We're all hopeful," McDermott said. "We're hopeful at this point that this is something that finalizes it and knocks it out and Cordy can return on a full-time basis."'

Marker Bills GM Beane upset over tanking talk [1:38 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I was very annoyed," Beane told Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. "We would not have tried to get Anquan Boldin on our team if we were tanking. We would not have tried to get Jordan Matthews -- who, if you look at his numbers in his first three years, they're pretty good. We would not have tried to get E.J. Gaines. We would have just tried to get more draft capital if we weren't worried about 2017. We're going to compete our tails off for 2017."'

Marker Bills LT Cordy Glenn gets injection, considered week-to-week [1:37 AM]
ESPN reports: 'With Glenn sidelined for parts of training camp, Seantrel Henderson has practiced with the Bills' first team at left tackle. Because Henderson is suspended for the first five games of the regular season, McDermott said rookie second-round pick Dion Dawkins would replace Glenn at left tackle if his foot injury causes him to miss regular-season games.'

Marker Brown studied Carolina's defense to prepare for 2017 season [1:36 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Back home in Cincinnati, I got to talk to him for a little bit,” Brown said Tuesday morning with Howard Simon and Jeremy White on WGR. “I just learned about coach [McDermott" target="_blank"> and what things he expects from his linebackers and his players, how Kuechly played it, what way he was playing. Just learning things on how he’s so successful and it was great to sit down to talk for him for a bit.”'

Marker Bills wrap camp with short practice, prep for Eagles [1:35 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Newly acquired WR Jordan Matthews, who is out with a chip fracture in his chest, was on the field in a jersey watching his fellow wide receivers and talking with position coach Phil McGeoghan.'

Marker Frazier ready to lead the defense into 2017 season [1:34 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“We’re right on course and right where we need to be at this point in training camp,” Frazier said with Howard Simon and Jeremy While live from training camp Tuesday morning. “We laid a good foundation looking back at what we did in off-season which was good for our ongoing preparation.”'

Marker Joe B: 2017 Buffalo Bills Training Camp Awards [1:33 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Seriously, could this have gone to anyone else? #FreeEddieYarbrough has been a revelation for the Bills in training camp this summer.'

Marker Glenn's status now week to week after foot injection [1:32 AM] reports: '“The doctors are hopeful,” said McDermott of Glenn’s prognosis. “We’re all hopeful, but we’re really just week to week at this point and hope to get him back as soon as possible. We just have to stay on top of it.”'

Marker Top 3 things to know from Day 14 at Bills Camp [1:31 AM] reports: '“It was good. It was fun,” said Preston Brown. “Coach took care of us when we need to be taken care of. And we worked every single day. That’s something that was great. We went out there and got better every day.”'

Marker 2017 Bills Training Camp Awards [1:30 AM] reports: 'From the very beginning of training camp LeSean McCoy was the most dominant player on the field with the ball in his hands. Whether it was juking defenders or making plays in the passing game, McCoy is the most critical weapon in Buffalo’s offense and showed it every day he lined up.'

Marker Bills Today: Jonathan Williams learned from last season [1:29 AM] reports: '“I definitely think there was a learning curve,” said Williams. “I have a lot of confidence in myself, and it was a year where I didn’t do as well as I wanted. I think I needed it to get ready for this year and my future career. It helped me get introduced to the NFL, and it helped learn what I needed to work on. It let me know it wasn’t where I wanted to be last year, and I use it as motivation.”'

Marker New Bills receiver Jordan Matthews suffers chip fracture in sternum less than 15 minutes into first [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Beane said that, in reviewing video of the practice Sunday night, it was apparent the injury occurred when Matthews collided with cornerback Shareece Wright within the first 15 minutes of practice. Wright left Sunday's session early with an injury to his right thumb.'

Marker Bills' practice raises McDermott's ire, which then creates chippy tone [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Coach brought us up and really just kind of grabbed us by the facemasks and gave us a good butt-chewing and a lot of guys needed to hear that," Incognito said. "A lot of guys at this level are not used to hearing that.'

Marker Leslie Frazier says Bills will have 'open competition' to fill Ronald Darby's startin [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Candidates for the job include second-year pro Kevon Seymour, Shareece Wright and newly acquired E.J. Gaines, who came to the team in a separate trade from the Los Angeles Rams. Leonard Johnson, who is currently listed first on the Bills' depth chart, has been working exclusively in the slot.'

Marker What we learned at Bills Camp: Day 14 [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We're what? A day away from breaking camp? It was going to happen sooner or later," said right tackle Jordan Mills, who found himself in the middle of one of those skirmishes, with defensive end Shaq Lawson. "It was a little hot today. We've been grinding for what, two weeks, 14-plus days? Hitting the same person day in and day out. ... That's with every training camp, it's going to have a couple days where you just get after each other."'

Marker What They Said: Jerry Hughes, Richie Incognito, Lorenzo Alexander, Leslie Frazier and more after a c [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Absolutely, especially being on the defensive side of things, but you have to play within the rules and just use all that bottled up frustration to play in between the whistles. You know, just be a smart player, you understand things are going to get chippy, but at the same time just play in between the whistles.'

Marker Vic Carucci's 3 Bills thoughts: Boldness of trades can't be overestimated [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Beane and McDermott had the guts to ignore that logic and take on a whole lot of pressure -- even more than what already comes with the massive burden of finding a solution to 17 years of futility.'
