Buffalo Bills News - October 13, 2015

Marker Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could miss multiple games with MCL sprain [2:58 PM]
CBS Sports reports: 'Meanwhile, Taylor's absence means former first-round pick EJ Manuel will make his first start of the season when the Bills host the undefeated Bengals.'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign QB Josh Johnson, providing injury insurance for Tyrod Taylor [1:52 PM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'If Taylor isn't able to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6, EJ Manuel would be in line to start for the Bills.'

Marker With starter Taylor limping, Bills sign QB Josh Johnson [1:51 PM]
AP reports: 'Johnson was signed a day after being released by Indianapolis.'

Marker Bills sign QB Johnson with Taylor ailing [1:50 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'A fifth-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2008, Johnson has started five of 29 career NFL games while also spending time with San Francisco, Cleveland, Cincinnati and the New York Jets. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has completed 96 of 177 career passes for 1,042 yards, five touchdowns and 10 interceptions.'

Marker Bills sign QB Josh Johnson; K Cundiff released [1:49 PM] reports: 'Johnson spent most of the 2015 offseason with Cincinnati after signing as a free agent with the Bengals last April. He appeared in one preseason game for Cincinnati going 11-21 passing for 175 yards. The Bengals released him in late August and he was signed by the New York Jets where he appeared in their preseason finale going 7-12 passing for 82 yards. He also ran for 76 yards on seven carries. He was released by the Jets during final cuts in early September.'

Marker Bills just may have saved their season [1:07 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Afterward, Ryan maintained, “(Our) quarterback’s got the biggest heart. Man, it was tough sledding, but he’s got guts, he’s got heart. He wasn’t playing great, but at the end of the day he’s the reason we won the game.” How often have the Bills been able to say that about a quarterback over the last decade-and-a-half, especially given Sunday’s situation with offensive personnel?'

Marker It's time for the Bills to unleash their quarterback [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Yet when the Bills slip into these offensive funks, offensive coordinator Greg Roman probably should feature Taylor's mobility. How many quarterbacks resemble a real-life Willie Beamen?'

Marker Bills need to put the heat on Dalton [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Dalton is no Tom Brady. He’s a well-chronicled 0-4 in playoff games. But the Bengals figure to be as challenging a test for the Bills’ defense as Brady’s Patriots were in Week Two. As of Monday, they were first in the NFL in total offense, first in yards per pass, second in yards per play, third in passing, seventh in rushing.'

Marker Bills coach Ryan sheds light on Tyrod Taylor's ankle injury [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills were fined $20,000 during the 2012 season for not properly reporting a wrist injury suffered by Mario Williams to the league. Although Williams played every game and took every rep in practice, the league determined the injury was significant enough to merit being listed.'

Marker Stephon Gilmore coming up big for Bills [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This guy is really playing well, and I would have to believe some of the Gilmore hate will start to subside. For some reason fans have really ridden the 2012 first-round draft choice, and while he may not have been an instant star his first two years, he was tremendous last year, and he's been even better this year. He had three more pass breakups against the Titans, plus the game-securing interception with 1:32 left to play.'

Marker Bills have 2 of league's best cornerbacks [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'For those keeping score at home, Pro Football Focus has Gilmore and Darby as their No. 2 and No. 3 ranked cornerbacks in the entire NFL this season. Pro Football Focus doesn't have the definitive word on the matter, but considering Gilmore and Darby are the top two cornerbacks in the NFL in passes defended with 10 and 11, respectively, it's safe to say they are playing pretty well.'

Marker Bills' Rex Ryan says QB hasn't been 100 percent all year with ankle [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It's always a concern, there's no question," Ryan said. "I can tell you this: He is beat up right now. He's sore. You ought to see him. He is sore. We knew he would be. Guys, he hasn't been 100 percent all season. He's had an ankle even through training camp. We really haven't seen the 100 percent Tyrod Taylor. Of course, you're always concerned when you're quarterback takes off with it."'

Marker It's time to give Buffalo Bills' defense more credit after win over Tennessee Titans [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Consider this: The Bills' offense mustered only 209 yards, and the Titans had the ball for 11 minutes longer than the Bills on Sunday. Normally that's not a formula for winning football games, but that's the benefit of having a dominant defense. And yes, this Bills group has shown plenty of signs in the first five weeks that it can be that type of defense.'

Marker Will the real Buffalo Bills please stand up? [1:52 AM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'I don't know why this is, but doesn't it seem that it takes a team two weeks to actually miss missing players. Buffalo was without playmakers Sammy Watkins, LeSean McCoy and McCoy's replacement Karlos Williams. The Bills made do a week ago but Sunday they were inept without them.'

Marker Bills in line to welcome back Watkins, running back Williams [1:51 AM]
AP reports: 'As for Williams, Ryan said the rookie was still taking part in the NFL's concussion protocol. However, Ryan indicated Williams is expected to be cleared after saying the Bills had no plans to add a running back; Cierre Wood went on season-ending injured reserve Monday.'

Marker Bills place running back Wood on IR; activate Enemkpali [1:50 AM]
AP reports: 'Starting running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is out indefinitely. Backup Karlos Williams (concussion) has a chance to return Sunday, when Buffalo (3-2) hosts Cincinnati (5-0).'

Marker Ryan: Bills QB Taylor 'is beat up right now' [1:49 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Buffalo offense is a mess without wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running backs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams. With no one really stepping up to fill those voids, Taylor's burden has been enormous. He couldn't make it work in Week 4 against the Giants, and he was probably fortunate to be playing a young Tennessee team that hasn't figured out how to close games.'

Marker Bills add LB Enemkpali to roster, place RB Wood on IR [1:48 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Enemkpali was signed by the Bills on Sept. 11, the same day he was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the season stemming from the incident in which he punched and broke the jaw of former New York Jets teammate quarterback Geno Smith. Enemkpali's roster exemption expired Monday.'

Marker RB Wood to IR; updates on Karlos, Sammy, Tyrod [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Starting running back LeSean McCoy has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. Ryan said it’s too early in the week to tell if Williams or McCoy will be available to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, he said he is “encouraged” by the progress of wide receiver Sammy Watkins and his chances to suit up next weekend.'

Marker Dominant? [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'But to be unhappy with this Bills defense after this win over the Titans seems at best misguided. On the field most of the first half because of the inability of the offense to even get first downs, let alone touchdowns, they limited Tennessee to only three points. A special teams turnover set the Titans up for their only touchdown in the third quarter. There was one more field goal drive and that was it.'

Marker 5 takeaways from Bills' Rex Ryan (10/12) [1:45 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Bills have existed the past couple of weeks in a world without having wide receiver Sammy Watkins available to them. The starting wide receivers, Percy Harvin and Robert Woods, have combined for only seven receptions and 65 yards in the two games Watkins’ has been absent, leaving a lot to be desired from that starting group. The calf injury has claimed two games, but Watkins made significant enough of progress late in the week to get the Bills to “feel good” about his status heading into Week Six.'

Marker Bills add DE Enemkpali to the 53; RB Wood to I-R [1:44 AM] reports: 'To make room on the roster for Enemkpali the Bills placed RB Cierre Wood on injured reserve. Wood sustained a knee injury in Sunday’s win at Tennessee and had to be carted to the locker room.'

Marker No spy on Taylor proved costly for Titans [11:17 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'No, offensive coordinator Greg Roman didn’t expect to be dialing up plays for Boom Herron and Cierre Wood back in training camp. And, yes, the Titans had a full bye week to prepare for Buffalo. But why not unleash Taylor on the run earlier? Nothing was working on offense. His athleticism is a needed weapon when everything else shuts down. On defense, Ryan and defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman effectively cooled Mariota’s up-tempo attack.'

Marker Three up, three down following Bills' comeback victory over Titans [11:16 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Seantrel Henderson – The Bills' offensive line did not look good for much of the day, and Henderson was a big reason why. He put the offense in that third-and-23 hole with consecutive penalties on the eventual game-winning drive, and generally struggled keeping Derrick Morgan off Taylor all afternoon.'

Marker Sweat equity rewarded in Bills’ comeback win [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“No win in this league is ever easy,” Williams said of what was going through his mind as he left the field. “And I try to tell these guys, as good a players as we have, every game that you win, enjoy it. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy playing together, winning together, because they’re tough. And I’m going to enjoy them. Every one of them.”'

Marker Hogan knew a big play was needed [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Obviously going into these types of games, with Sammy out, I’ll be in the scouting report,” Hogan said. “If teams want to overlook me, that’s fine. I know that I’m going to be getting man coverage and it’ll be up to me to make plays. What I’ve done the last couple weeks, I don’t think teams will be overlooking the fact that I’m in the game.'

Marker The cool kid QB delivers when it counts [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Time will tell if Tyrod Taylor truly fits the mold. I’m still dubious. But for about 15 minutes Sunday, he at least looked the part. With the Bills reeling and staring a second straight loss in the face, Taylor used his arm and his legs to produce two late touchdowns and lead the Bills to a 14-13 comeback victory over the Titans.'

Marker Tested by penalties, defense produces key stops [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We had to find a way to make plays," Graham said. "We haven’t played the way we wanted to play starting the season off so it was a step in the right direction to show what we’re capable of doing.”'

Marker Offense brings big plays by the chunkful [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With three minutes left in the third quarter and the Bills down, 10-0, Tyrod Taylor scrambled for 26 yards. Two plays later, he darted up the middle and along the left sideline 22 yards for a touchdown.'
