That’s why I wanted to get him a little more work too. He did a great job.”'

Buffalo News reports: '“I’m going to continue bringing it,” Incognito said. “The easy narrative is ‘Oh, he’s this changed man.’ I’ve definitely changed for the better, but I think what you see is a guy who’s just really focused.'

Marker Jackson is ready for action with Bills [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I’ve got to show that I’m still here to compete, still here to make plays whenever I get that opportunity,” he said. “It’s on me to go out and show that I can still do that. I’m accepting that challenge and looking forward to it. This should be a good test for me."'

Marker Bills rookie Steward getting shot as backup LB [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I guess I was kind of thinking 'why me?'" Steward said recently, reflecting on those hard knocks.

Marker Introducing the Bills’ ‘All Playoff Drought Team’ [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'These Bills are truly the “Lost Generation,” players who ask themselves “Why would anybody want to remember me?” But the truth is, people — most at least — do appreciate every player who puts on a Bills uniform and represents western New York the best he can.'

Marker Rex Ryan is the only NFL coach without a quarterback (again) [1:55 AM]

Marker 5 things to watch in Bills - Steelers [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Do not belittle the importance of this game — at least not for the men vying for the starting quarterback job. The Bills may have already made up their mind as to who they choose to be the starter in 2015, but the players don’t know that. They are still operating under the premise that the third preseason game, at least from what Rex Ryan has said publicly, will be the last test before they decide on their man.'

Marker Five players to watch [1:53 AM] reports: 'Red Bryant: He surprisingly saw a bit of action last week at Cleveland, and figures to see a good deal more playing time against Pittsburgh. Buffalo’s defensive staff wants to see how much the big-bodied Bryant still has to give at 31-years old.'

Marker Bills hand ball to Manuel for game with Steelers [1:59 AM]

Marker Hogan confident of sticking to roster [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I feel pretty comfortable,” Hogan said. “But when this kind of stuff happens, you take a step back and help these young guys. You take all the mental reps you can and put yourself out there as much as you can even though you’re not physically out there.”'

Marker It's Manuel's turn to start preseason game for Bills [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"My plan was to give everybody opportunities, whether it's equal reps or whatever," said Ryan. "Nobody can say that nobody was given a fair shot here. EJ earned a shot at this. He played well in those two games as well, and really that (scrimmage) wasn't like starting in a preseason game, so we'll see. EJ's always gotten reps with the threes and the twos, now it's his shot to get reps with the ones as well and I feel good about that."'

Marker Why Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills think Richie Incognito can be a leader for them [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I think I'm finally getting back to somewhat normal," Incognito says. "I think it's just good to be in the rhythm of season, get in the rhythm of training camp, get going. Hopefully, I'll stop having to answer questions about what went down eventually but I understand it right now. Everyone's kind of curious. There's still a lot of stuff that's been untold. There's kind of the untold story, but I think as the season goes on and get in the natural progression and just talking about what's going on now."'

Marker QB Manuel will start for Bills vs. Steelers [1:53 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Remember, I'm not going to make that decision until we play Indy," Ryan said last week. "Competitive reasons, whatever. Go for it. We don't need to tell them. Until the league makes us tell them, we can just go right up in there and say, 'We're not gonna say anything.' We may know. But why would we say any difference? The quarterbacks that we're talking about, they're all three different. So plan for all three of them. And I think that's smart on our part.'
