Marker Day 1 Bills Training Camp Observations: Stephon's statement [4:42 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Stephon Gilmore couldn't have done it much better if he planned it this way. First play from scrimmage in the team period, a throw by Tyrod Taylor ... and an interception by Gilmore.

Marker 10 questions the Buffalo Bills must answer during camp [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It was certainly a different scene at training camp in 2015 when Taylor was battling EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel for the starting job. Taylor won it with veritable ease, and went on to prove the coaching staff right as he put forth a solid first season as a full-time NFL starter.

Marker Buffalo Bills depth chart: The battle for positions during camp [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Taylor has the Bills in a better QB situation than they’ve had in recent memory if he continues to grow as a player.

Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I'm an honest person," McCoy said. "I've never been in trouble a day in my life. I'm from nothing, a hard-working family. I told everybody, I was honest and I was right. I didn't do anything wrong. It was obvious. Y'all read it, y'all seen what happened. Nothing came out of it. It just sucks that my name was dragged into so much negative press for just being in that situation that you had nothing to do with. But that's life. I'm not going to sit here and complain about it. It is what it is."'

Marker Assistant Jeff Weeks broke his foot falling down stairs at Buffalo Bills training camp [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"We forgot to touch on one medical issue or one injury update," Rex Ryan said in his first press conference of training camp Friday. "Jeff Weeks was injured.

ESPN reports: '"You don't hear about other guys like Peyton Manning or Tom Brady getting into incidents like that. So I think sometimes you get so lackadaisical about being successful as a football player, and then you let all the minor, small things go. In a situation like that, [if" target="_blank"> you got security or you got even off-duty officers working for me at the time, and this thing never even gets out of hand."'

Marker McCoy: No excuses for bar incident, thankful for support from Pegulas [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I called my owners, my coaches, to let them know exactly what happened,” he said. “I’m an honest person. I've never been in trouble a day in my life. I've been from nothing, a hardworking family, so I told everybody. I was honest and I was right. I didn't do anything wrong. And it was obvious. I mean you all read it. you all seen what happened. Nothing came out of it. It just sucks that your name gets dragged into so much negative press, you know, for just being in a situation that you had nothing to do with. But I mean but that's life.
