Marker Bills interested in bolstering defensive line [4:49 PM]
AP reports: '"Right now, I'm satisfied with what we've got," Gray said. "But the thing is, I'm waiting for somebody to step up. They're working hard. I'm not going to deny them that. But you still need somebody to step up and say, 'Hey, look. I want to be the man."''

Marker Driven to succeed [1:19 PM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'Since being selected by the Bills in the sixth round of the 2001 draft, Driver has been almost as busy off the field as he has been on it. He represented the team in May when Buffalo hosted the Special Olympics, helped stage a football clinic for women, appeared at an ice skating show and at events celebrating Black History Month, and worked as a server for a Buffalo Children's Hospital benefit. Driver is also a frequent visitor to hospitals and nursing homes.'

Marker Bills high on Wire [1:18 PM]
Pro Football Weekly reports: The Bills were very happy with the play of Wire against the run in the Bengals game. If not for the great tackling by Wire, Cincinnati would have scored at least two more touchdowns and rushed for at least 100 more yards. However, Wire still seems uncertain in coverage. Nevertheless, he is almost a cinch to start for Buffalo, which generally plays its strong safety in the box in Gregg Williams’ defensive scheme.

Marker Two Minute Drill… With Sammy Morris [11:27 AM] reports: put running back Sammy Morris in the hot seat for the two minute drill. Read what he had to say about about his teammates.

Marker Reminder Of Policies At Ralph Wilson Stadium [10:54 AM] reports: In advance of the Bills second home game of the season vs. the Minnesota Vikings this Friday evening, the team would like to remind fans of the policies that will be in effect at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2002.

Those two names are also atop most of Buffalo’s all-time career passing lists. An All-Conference quarterback at Arkansas, Ferguson was selected in the third round of the 1973 draft. The Louisiana native had thought that he might end up staying close to his roots.

Marker Friday's QB Rotation [10:22 AM] reports: Friday's game: Drew Bledsoe will play at least the majority of the first half. Travis Brown will work the bulk of the second half.

Marker Training camp billboard [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The whole deal is how you approach it. There's no such thing as a problem. It's just a challenge and a situation you've got to rise to. That's part of being a pro athlete." - Offensive line coach Ronnie Vinklarek on players replacing injured starters.'

Marker Todd DeLamielleure [7:09 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'Todd DeLamielleure is the 23-year-old son of Joe DeLamielleure, a standout Buffalo Bills offensive guard and member of the "Electric Company" line that blocked for O.J. Simpson. Now it's the son's turn, as a 5-11, 240-pound linebacker in the Indianapolis Colts' training camp, to try to make it in the NFL.'

Marker Real men stay cool [5:28 AM]
D and C reports: 'On the practice field, water and Gatorade are everywhere. Denying players water breaks is from the leather-helmet era. Football may still be the ultimate macho game, but when the thermometer soars into the mid-90s and the humidity drives the heat index more than 100 degrees, the advice is be smart, not manly.'

Marker McDaniel tries to catch break [5:28 AM]

Marker Bills seek defensive line depth [5:27 AM]
D and C reports: 'Price, a defensive tackle, and Ahanotu, an end, would bring a combined 18 years and 240 games of NFL experience to a Bills' line where six-year veteran Pat Williams is the most tenured player.'

Marker Bills' preseason report card [9:18 PM]
Fox Sports reports: 'The Bills should make progress this season and play very competitively. But they have enough holes yet and a tough schedule that could keep them from making the playoffs. They could make things interesting over the latter half of the season as the core meshes together - but this could be a very intriguing team to watch in 2003.'

Marker Bills all about redemption [8:46 PM]
FOX Sports reports: 'The Buffalo Bills already seem so much better than last year’s sad sacks that linebacker London Fletcher has all but guaranteed the playoffs. I don’t know about that, but I do know the Bills can cause trouble in the AFC East if quarterback Drew Bledsoe and his offensive coordinator find what they’re after. Around here, it’s called redemption.'

Marker Q&A with Tom Donahoe [8:44 PM]
FOX Sports reports: You may not like him, but you can't help but admire Tom Donahoe for the strength in leadership he's shown in the short time he's been general manager of the Buffalo Bills. Donahoe is the guy who had the guts to cut Doug Flutie. He's the guy who straightened out the salary cap, too. He's the guy who found rookie replacements for salary-cap casualties. And now he's the guy who oversees the rebuilding of one of the AFC's best and brightest organizations through marvelous drafting and shrewd free-agent acquisitions.

Marker Bills going after Ahanotu [8:44 PM]
AP reports: '"It's not done yet, but it's looking positive," Ahanotu's agent Scott Langley said on Wednesday, updating the progress of contract talks. "I know it's close."'

Marker Bills & Verizon Fight Domestic Violence [4:11 PM] reports: The Buffalo Bills and Verizon Wireless have teamed up to ask Western New Yorkers to help fight domestic violence.

Also, a special collection will take place before the October 27, Bills game against the Detroit Lions at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Marker Bills' Brown, Jennings to miss Vikings game [3:10 PM]
AP reports: 'Bills coach Gregg Williams said on Wednesday Brown is close to being cleared to resume practicing, and Jennings isn't expected to miss a significant period of time.'

Marker Whispers from around the NFL [2:11 PM]
ESPN reports: 'This could be a make-or-break camp for three Bills veterans: DE Erik Flowers, who is struggling with a neck injury, DE Bryce Fisher and WR Jeremy McDaniel. Trade rumors continue to float around Buffalo regarding RB Shawn Bryson. The thinking is that the Bills are waiting for another team to have an injury at RB, after which they can make an offer. Bryson is currently slated to be the primary backup for Travis Henry, but the Bills have two other RBs who could fill that role in Sammy Morris and Richard Huntley. Don't be surprised if Bills guard Marques Sullivan supplants veteran Jerry Ostroski as the starting right guard. Ostroski remains on the PUP list with a leg injury, and Sullivan has been playing very well.'

Marker Bills cut Bradley, Fletcher [1:27 PM]
AP reports: 'Both were late acquisitions, signed just before the start of training camp.'

Marker Experience seasons Newman [1:21 PM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: "Sometimes you can put too much pressure on a guy when he's in his third year... and I think that (happen) to Keith," Bills defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said. "(In 2000, he was) starting and dominating and then you have to play like Sam and you have to play in the nickel, the dime and the ruby (cover packages) - to me, it was actually too much, but he took it and didn't complain. He did his job and I think that will help Keith this year."

Marker Bill release 2 UFDA's [11:34 AM] reports: The Bills today announced that the team has released CB Jykine Bradley and WR Delrico Fletcher. Bradley, a 5-10, 182-pound defensive back out of Middle Tennessee signed with the Bills as a free agent on July 17.
