Marker Bills ready to saddle up, start preseason [12:30 PM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It'll be more than a quarter," Mularkey said. "As much experience as he can get will obviously be a positive. The Green Bay scrimmage obviously helped. Every snap that he's had, whether it's been in mop-up duty or in these preseason games, is a learning experience. He'll get something out of each one of them, and I think he has. We'll make sure he gets enough to get comfortable once he gets going into the season."'

Marker Parrish undergoes successful surgery [12:29 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'However, it is possible Parrish may be sidelined for the rest of the preseason and possibly longer if his wrist is broken. A common absence for a broken wrist is six to eight weeks.'

Marker Bills' Greer out to win nickel back role [5:08 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'With the team's important nickel back role up for grabs — that's the player who is first off the bench when the defense goes to five defensive backs, which is often — Greer is committed to giving the kind of effort that provides peace of mind if not the desired end result. But the odds are pretty good Greer will nail down the No. 3 cornerback job.'

Marker Cicci/Kelly team getting on track [5:08 AM]
Elmira Star Gazette reports: 'Kelly first hooked up with Cicci in October 2002 in a move to make the team more marketable to sponsors. Cicci said Kelly is very supportive despite the recent loss of his 8-year-old son Hunter, who suffered from Krabbe disease, an inherited degenerative disorder of the central and peripheral nervous systems. “He goes to every race he can, but he’s had to deal with the situation with Hunter,” Cicci said. “There was a lot of care that had to be given to Hunter, and it was a big responsibility for his wife, so he had to stay back and help her a lot of the time. He’s a very good family man.”'

Marker Losman Experience Starts with Top QB's [9:43 PM] reports: '"I like to play against their best," Mularkey said. "I'd like our line and Mike Gandy to get a chance [against Freeney]. I think it ought to be the best against the best."'

Marker Colts, Bills take on new identities in preseason game [5:13 PM]
AP reports: 'Buffalo coach Mike Mularkey wants to see how the strong-armed Losman reacts to pressure, reads defenses, how quickly he finds secondary receivers and how he works behind an offensive line that has two new starters in Mike Gandy and Bennie Anderson. Losman is expected to play about a half.'

Marker Prosper without Parrish? [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Parrish's absence helps Josh Reed's chances to retain the No. 3 receiver job. Reed has struggled the past two seasons, failing to make the kind of impact the Bills expected of him after a promising rookie year in 2002. There had been speculation that Reed's spot on the roster was in jeopardy this summer, but except for a few dropped balls, he has looked pretty good in training camp.'

Marker Bills' Cieslak goes full tilt to honor his late friend [5:05 AM]

Marker Parrish suffers right wrist injury [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I don't know what the emotion is until I find out the facts about (the injury)," Mularkey said. "I'm sorry he missed practice today. These practices are important to him, but there are going to be injuries sooner or later. If he can't play, we have other guys who will have opportunities to shine."'

Marker Boredom now could lead to excitement later [5:03 AM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'Remember the bickering Buffalo Bills of 1989 — the team that would argue about anything, even the color of the artificial turf at what was then Rich Stadium? Well, those days are gone. This year’s version of the Buffalo Bills is coming across as just one big happy family — the kind that Ward and June Cleaver would envy.'

Marker Parrish Status Uncertain [5:02 AM] reports: '"What do we lose without roscoe," asked quarterback J.P. Losman? "His energy, his quickness, his third down presence there. If somebody wants to guard him one on one it's very, very tough. So that definitely hurts us. But people get hurt all the time in the NFL and good teams are able to overcome it."'

Marker Moorman Garners Humanitarian Award [10:42 PM] reports: 'He also has established The PUNT Foundation, whose mission is to support pediatric cancer research, treatment and social programs. He and his wife, Amber, make regular visits to the Roswell Park Cancer Institute to visit children with cancer and his events help benefit Carly's Club and the programs they provide for families affected by cancer.'

Marker Greer Working to Secure Nickel Spot [10:41 PM] reports: '"I don't want to look at this opportunity five or ten years from now at what I could've done or what I should've done," Greer said after a recent practice. "I know that right now I can seize this opportunity and make the best of it."'

Marker Status of Roscoe's Wrist Unknown [10:41 PM] reports: '"I was definitely one of the guys that wanted to see [Roscoe play]," said 10-year veteran Eric Moulds. "In Green Bay you got to see flashes of what type of player he is going to be. Until you really get into a game situation it's hard to tell. I think it's a step back for him but the way he handles it, by coming out and working hard, he'll be all right."'

Marker Bills Injured WR Misses Practice [10:40 PM]

Marker Bills WR Parrish expected to miss preseason opener [10:40 PM]
AP reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey said he doesn't know the extent of the injury. He said Parrish traveled to Buffalo -- about a 90-minute drive west of training camp in suburban Rochester -- to review test results with the team's medical director, Dr. John Marzo. That's an indication the injury is serious. Mularkey, however, would only say that it's unlikely Parrish will play this weekend.'

Marker Bills place rookie TE Everett on PUP list [10:38 PM]
AP reports: 'Selected 86th overall out of Miami, Everett will continue working out on his own and could begin practicing midway through the season. That's when the team will determine whether to activate him or have him sit out the rest of the year.'

Marker Buffalo (0-0) at Indianapolis (0-1) [10:37 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'For Buffalo, all eyes will be on second-year starting quarterback J.P. Losman, who is expected to take the reins of the offense this season. Losman, a first- round draft pick out of Tulane in 2005, has just five regular season pass attempts to his credit as an NFL player. Losman is likely to play at least the first quarter before yielding to backups Kelly Holcomb and Shane Matthews. Holcomb, the former starting QB in Cleveland, will be suiting up as a Buffalo Bill for the first time. The quarterbacks will not have second-round draft choice Roscoe Parrish at their disposal on Saturday, as Parrish is nursing a sore hand. Elsewhere on offense, Buffalo will be unveiling a new left side of the line, with former Bear Mike Gandy taking over at tackle and former Raven Bennie Anderson playing the guard slot.'

Marker Practice changeup makes for festive evening [12:29 PM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: '“There were times when I thought the offensive line was moving,” Mularkey remarked. “I think both sides of the ball were successful tonight. It was good work. We needed to work on the play-action with our defense. We’ll do that one more time before we go into the season.”'

Marker Bills O-line depth put to the test [12:28 PM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: 'Peters saw time at both offensive line and tight end as a rookie last season. He played tight end at Arkansas and is working his first camp as a full-time offensive lineman. “It was difficult getting the technique, all the blitzes and the reads,” said Peters. “I stayed here in Buffalo watching film and going over technique. Coach McNally knows the game. I just listen to him and take that onto the field.”'

Marker Remembering Hunter Kelly [12:27 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I remember watching the candlelight vigils held on television, seeing so many people praying with Hunter and his family. I was struck by the strength of the little boy who continued to surpass the expectations of doctors year after year. I was struck by Jim Kelly's love and passion for his son that showed he was a loving father, more than anything else. His strength of character was never portrayed greater than when he stood smiling at his wife, two daughters, and the boy he called "my soldier."'

Marker Kelly will be grand marshal for Busch race [12:14 PM]
Elmira Star Gazette reports: 'Kelly, who founded Hunter's Hope Foundation with his wife, plans to address the crowd about the foundation during pre-race ceremonies Saturday.'
