Buffalo Bills News - August 25, 2016

Marker Tyrod Taylor eager to get Sammy Watkins back on the field Friday [9:16 PM]
Buffalo News reports: '“People that I’ll lean on said that it was best to just get him through this spot and then we’ll build him up to play in this game,” the coach said. “So I wasn’t going to just throw him out there and I was the only one that felt that way.”'

Marker Backup OL Ryan Groy battling to win Bills roster spot [9:14 PM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“He’s made a pretty good account of himself,” Ryan said of Groy, who acknowledged he’s in the drivers’ seat for that role. “We have to come up with someone who can be a swing center/guard, we have to look for that.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills 53-man roster projection 2016: Predicting roster before third preseason game [9:12 PM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'With the departure of Karlos Williams, the Bills' running back depth chart has settled into place. James Wilder Jr. and Dan Herron have a lot of ground to make up in the final two preseason games if either one wants to pass Jonathan Williams on the depth chart.'

Marker Bills OT Henderson thriving after battle with Crohn's disease [9:02 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"As of right now, I've been out for a while so it's all about competing," Henderson said. "Whatever the outcome is, of course I would love to start. Jordan has it right now and he's my teammate and I wish the best for him and he wishes the best for me. Early on I had some of those doubts (that my career was in jeopardy), I didn't know what the future had set for me, I just kept doing everything the doctor said, eating right and moving forward to get back on the field," he said. "Not a lot's different, just the diet, certain things I have to stay away from. Stay away from the stuff know I have to stay away from and I think I'll be fine."'

Marker Gilmore deal number one priority for the Bills [8:59 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Entering his fifth season in the National Football League, Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore will likely receive a pretty high pay raise this off-season. Gilmore's base salary could go from a little over $2 million a year to around $11 million.'

Marker 5 things to watch for in Bills - Washington (8/26/16) [8:57 PM]
WKBW-TV reports: ' Perhaps a bit earlier than expected, the Bills welcomed former starting right tackle Seantrel Henderson back to the practice field this week. Henderson, who started 26 games for the Bills over the last two seasons, had a serious battle with Crohn’s disease that left some to ponder if he’d be able to play again. Now Henderson is back on the field, and it immediately led to the question about his potential availability and playing level for the 2016 season.'

Marker Scouting Report - Buffalo-Washington [8:56 PM] reports: 'A pair of starters will see preseason action for the first time on Friday at Washington. OLB Manny Lawson and WR Sammy Watkins will both see playing time at FedEx Field. Lawson has been practicing the past two weeks in his return from a partially torn pectoral muscle. Watkins has had his reps in practice closely monitored throughout training camp and the athletic training and medical staff believes now is the appropriate time for Watkins to see game action.'

Marker Kathryn Smith, the NFL's first female full-time coach, is not thinking about history [1:42 PM]
SI reports: '“My focus really is on my job, coaching and doing the best I can at it,” Smith told me earlier this month at Bills training camp, at St. John Fisher College in suburban Rochester. “I do recognize that my role has some significance, but that has never been in the front of my mind, or been my motivation. I didn’t really look at it in that light until after the fact, sort of until everyone else started to.'

Marker The Buddy System [1:36 PM]
ESPN reports: 'But that's the reality of being a Ryan. You're born with extra-thick skin. By the time Rex and Rob were in second grade, they knew they wanted to be coaches, just like their dad. Around that same time, Jim also knew they'd be trouble.'

Marker Much-traveled Worthy thinks he’s found a home with Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It was a new area, and a different rehab process,” he said. “Having to train my core back up again, to be able to handle offensive lineman, that definitely was the biggest thing I had to overcome. It takes a long time to get back from certain types of injuries.”'

Marker Blanton tries to make Bills roster [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I thought it was a great opportunity with great coaches,” Blanton said. “You get to learn from a bevy of great coaches: Tim McDonald, Ed Reed, D.T. (Dennis Thurman), Rob Ryan, Rex Ryan. You can’t get a better group of guys to learn from.”'

Marker Bills RB Mike Gillislee named fantasy football breakout option in deep leagues [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Gillislee certainly flashed talent during his short stint with the Bills in 2015. In five games with Buffalo, the running back rushed for 267 yards and three touchdowns on 47 attempts, a 5.7 yard per carry average. He had carries of 30, 50 and 60 yards during the five games.'

Marker Buffalo Bills quarterback Cardale Jones is ready for Madden 17 challengers [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Jones will be tough to beat with 99 ratings across the board, and he won't take it easy on you. Remember, Jones once went to a children's hospital to visit patients and he ran up the score against one young boy named Jared.'

Marker Little’s success a good sign for Bills [1:55 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“I was happy for (Little),” Manuel said. “(Little) is one of those guys that is very hungry, always wanting the ball. When we were about to snap the ball he said, ‘Hey E, give me a look.’ I was the corner pressed up on him and gave him a chance.”'

Marker Injuries, suspensions plagued Bills at training camp [1:54 AM]
AP reports: '"It's been a piece of cake, really," Ryan said with a distinct roll of his eyes, when asked how taxing camp had been.'

Marker Somebody created a monster in Bills corner Stephon Gilmore [1:53 AM]
The Sporting News reports: '"You have to be mentally strong and believe in your worth. Sometimes you look at it and say, ‘why me.’ They can’t afford you or they want you at a certain number. It’s something you have to pray about, weigh on, take everybody’s advice that’s around you, in your corner. Because that’s sometimes a life-changing decision that you make."'

Marker Friday's game very important for these four bubble players [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The second-year player is making a push as of late to make the final roster after seemingly being buried down the depth chart. But it’s still going to be a very tough call at the position. O’Leary is the leading receiver at tight end this preseason, with 3 catches for 43 yards in the first two games. He does a lot of things well, but the problem is he doesn’t do anything exceptionally well. If he can put together another strong performance Friday night he could be on the right side of the bubble headed into the final week.'

Marker How to Watch Bills vs. Redskins [1:51 AM] reports: 'WKBW-TV Buffalo, WHAM-TV Rochester, WTVH-TV Syracuse.'

Buffalo News reports: 'Rookie quarterback Cardale Jones did not throw for a second straight practice as he deals with shoulder soreness following Saturday's game against the Giants. "Can't really give you a status for the game or not," Ryan said of the possibility of Jones playing against Washington on Friday. "We'll see how he is. His shoulder's sore. I don't have the extent of the injury. He took a hit in the game, but he played the rest of the game with it. Generally that's an indication that it's not a huge injury, I hope that's the case, that it's not serious."'

Marker Reggie Bush named as Buffalo Bills X-Factor by The Ringer [1:49 AM]

Marker Ronald Darby predicted to be Buffalo Bills' breakout player by ESPN [1:48 AM]
