Marker Vic Carucci's 3 Bills Thoughts: Reasons the sky just might not be falling [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But here's the good news: The Bills' defensive line can function reasonably well without him. His absence will be felt, no question about it, but there appears to be enough depth to keep things on track for a quarter of the season and longer if necessary. In fact, it's fair to say that Corbin Bryant and Jerel Worthy tend to play the scheme as it is designed and stick to their assignments more often than Dareus, whose greater talent sometimes causes him to do things his way because he usually can succeed. Rookie Adolphus Washington, who is having a tremendous preseason, also should do plenty to help pick up the slack.'

Marker Five positive Bills training camp takeaways [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It’s easy to say the Bills will be better given the fact that they were so mediocre last year (19th in yards, 15th in points). However, rookie lineman Adolphus Washington looks like a keeper, Kyle Williams is back after missing 10 games in 2015, Jerry Hughes looks as fast as ever, Preston Brown is much more in tune to what’s going on, and Stephon Gilmore — like McCoy and Taylor — will be supremely motivated to excel with free agency looming.'

Marker NFL Network's 'Good Morning Football' discusses Buffalo Bills playoff chances [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'In addition to questioning Buffalo's ability to get after the quarterback, the hosts seem unsure if Rob Ryan's addition to the coaching staff will actually help the Bills defense. It's a fair question when you look at Rob Ryan's last stint with the New Orleans Saints. In 2014, New Orleans was 31st in the league in yards allowed and were last in the NFL at the time of his firing.'

Marker Buffalo Bills OT Seantrel Henderson passes physical after battling Crohn's disease [1:52 AM]
