Marker Ty Powell injury creates opportunity for Buffalo Bills' rookie linebacker A.J. Tarpley [1:51 AM]

Marker Updates on Karlos Williams, Ty Powell, Jarius Wynn [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Williams was starting to work his way into the No. 2 running back role with injuries thinning the depth chart. Now he has joined those on the injury report.

If, and it has been talked about ad nauseam, it can find a quarterback. The remaining two candidates are Cassel and EJ Manuel. Cassel is a low risk, low reward veteran of 11 professional seasons, five years removed from his best year. Manuel, just three seasons in, finds himself playing for his career, without too terribly much going for him at this point.'

Marker Bills' LeSean McCoy having test on injured left hamstring [1:48 AM]
AP reports: 'McCoy pulled up short and started limping during 7-on-7 drills about an hour into Tuesday night's practice.

He required help getting up, and then slowly made his way to the locker room.'

Marker Browns safety Whitner gets cold reception from Bills fans [1:47 AM]

Marker Bills' McCoy leaves practice with hamstring injury [1:45 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"LeSean McCoy has a hamstring injury," Bills head coach Rex Ryan told Joe Buscaglia of WKBW in Buffalo. "The hamstring is intact, not off the bone. We're getting an MRI on it."'

Marker Bills sign LB Groves, RB Seale [1:44 AM]

Marker Bills injuries piling up (updates); Tuesday notes [1:43 AM]

Marker 7 Bills training camp observations: Day 14 [1:41 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The MRI will determine whether the injury is a pulled hamstring, or merely a strain. Either way, the Bills will be without McCoy against the Cleveland Browns, and considering that hamstring injuries aren’t ones to be messed around with, he’ll likely be out at least a week. After that, it’s all up to the MRI results and how severe the injury actually is.'

Marker Ryan lays out details of Bills injury bug [1:40 AM] reports: 'Ryan has his fingers crossed that Fred Jackson is able to return from his hamstring injury by the team’s third preseason game. “Hopefully he’ll come back for Pittsburgh,” Ryan said.'

Obviously [Boobie Dixon and I] are hurting, but the more numbers that we have, that’s going to take a lot [of reps] off everybody’s plate. So we’ll try to get back out there as soon as we can.”'

Marker Bills add DL Quentin Groves; RB Ricky Seale [1:38 AM] reports: 'Groves, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2008. He played in 16 games for the Tennessee Titans last season as a rotational player on their defense. He registered 16 tackles and a sack. He had a career-high 46 tackles and a career-high four sacks three seasons ago for the Arizona Cardinals.'

Marker Pettine and Ryan still tight as ever [1:37 AM] reports: '“I didn’t realize that this guy shooting video was as smart guy as you could be around,” Ryan said of Pettine and his first job with the Ravens. “I’m proud of all the years we spent together and seeing the success that he’s had now I’m really proud of that.”'

Marker Which player helped themselves or hurt themselves the most? [1:36 AM]

He added 47 yards on six carries and led a 90 yard scoring march.

Marker As Bills search for a quarterback, 'Tyrod Taylor Fever' is spreading [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s a production-based business,” Whaley said. “He produced with the twos so we’re excited for him to get in there Thursday with the ones to see what he can do. Everybody knows what he can do with his feet. But I’m impressed with a couple of his throws.'

Marker Joint workouts bring a different perspective for Bills and Browns [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It definitely raises the level of intensity,” Bills offensive guard Richie Incognito said. “You’re going against their starting defense. They’ve got a lot of pride. They don’t want to go out there and get pushed around. They’re going against our starting offense. We want to go out there and establish our physical presence, so the level of competition gets picked up.”'

Marker Linebacker Powell lost with torn ACL [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“That guy’s been playing great for us and really coming into his own,” Ryan said. “He finally found a home at inside linebacker and obviously was a key cog in our special teams. It’s going to be a great loss for us.”'

Marker Taylor gets his shot to win Bills' quarterback job [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It's a wonderful opportunity that I have and I'm excited for it, but there's work to be done leading up to the game and I'm focusing on that right now," Taylor said Monday following the first joint practice with the Cleveland Browns at steamy St. John Fisher College.'

Marker Updates: Recap on Bills, Browns at Fisher [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We'll conduct business as business is being done to us, I can promise you that," Ryan said Sunday following a no-pads practice under a blazing hot sun. "You don't want a pillow fight, you want to compete, and that's why it should be a higher intensity level anytime you're going against another opponent. But at the same time we want to practice football. If you just want to fight, we'll go to the local gym and grab some guy to fight somebody. That defeats the purpose, but we're not going to be bullied. I was hoping the idea was to get better as a football team."'

Marker Bills' Rex Ryan jokingly calls out IK Enemkpali in pre-practice speech about fighting [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Asked if that something was Enemkpali's incident, Ryan just smiled and said, "Nah, I'm not saying that."'

Marker Donte Whitner unfazed by booing from fans at Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns joint practices [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Ah, I don't even think about that. That was just something that goes on on Twitter," Whitner said after practice. "I think mine is a little more public, that you see everything I say, but you can't really see everything people say to me. I'm passed that. It's something that happened, but I'm passed that now."'

Marker Robert Woods feasts on Justin Gilbert, Browns secondary [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'It seemed every time a Bills quarterback threw Gilbert's way he allowed the catch. Robert Woods had an especially easy time beating Gilbert. During team drills, Gilbert allowed six catches on six throws his way. Even undrafted rookie Andre Davis was able to beat Gilbert for a touchdown.'

Marker Bills' signing of Enemkpali makes no sense [1:50 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Why the Bills ever signed Enemkpali is beyond me. It’s not like he’s a Pro Bowl player. He’s a sixth-round draft choice from a year ago who had just three tackles in six games with the Jets last year.'

Marker AP Source: Bills agree to deal with LB Quentin Groves [1:49 AM]
AP reports: 'Groves is a seven-year journeyman who had three starts in 16 games with Tennessee last season.
