Marker Bills in marketing deals for ice cream, snow plows [8:53 AM]

Marker Smith joins Bills' O-line shuffle as clock ticks [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The move underscored the fact that the front five is the big worry on the team.'

Marker Smith wants to show he's ready [5:32 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Smith was a tackle with the Ravens, so moving inside has been a slight adjustment in Buffalo, but one he's having no problem with. "The guy is really strong, and one of his assets is that guys don't push him back," said center Trey Teague. "He's plenty strong to play that position."'

Marker Posey heard boos but kept playing [5:31 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I heard the criticism, but the media and the fans don't know what's going on with the team, and I don't fault them for that," Posey said the other day. "I know what I had to do and what my role was on this team. I did my job, and as long as the coaches were satisfied, then I'm satisfied."'

Marker Ex-NFL player held in contempt [5:30 AM]
Philadelphia Inquirer reports: 'A first-round draft pick for the NFL's Buffalo Bills in 1993, Thomas L. Smith has not played for a while, but it was not paying for a while that got him in trouble in Chester County Court.'

Marker Offensive Line Changes [5:28 AM] reports: 'Lawrence Smith, who signed with the Buffalo Bills as a free agent in January, has replaced Mike Pucillo at left guard.

Marker Buffalo Bills 2004 Season Preview [5:27 AM] reports: 'Last year was discouraging but this year brings new hope. The offense has more weapons, and the defense has remained virtually intact. I really think Bills football will be exciting again. However, this is Mularkey’s first year at the helm and the AFC East is, arguably, the toughest division in which to play offense.'

Marker Bills OL Price out with toe injury [5:26 AM]
AP reports: 'Bills offensive lineman Marcus Price missed practice Tuesday and will be out for at least a week with an injured toe on his left foot.'

Marker Transcript: Coach Mike Mularkey [9:06 PM] reports: 'On Lawrence Smith playing with the first unit:
We just tried to get another combination in there. Lawrence has played well, and I've given him an opportunity to compete for that spot. I still feel like there's ample time to get a feel, and a clear evaluation of him.'

Marker Bills O-line shuffle continues [9:00 PM]
AP reports: 'And Smith was promoted to the starting unit, taking over for Mike Pucillo. ''We're trying another combination,'' coach Mike Mularkey said of elevating Smith. ''Lawrence has played well and we're giving him an opportunity to compete for that spot.'''

Marker Nice problem to have [5:06 PM]
Pro Football Weekly reports: 'But I would be shocked if Buffalo traded Henry this season.'

Marker Losman debut surprisingly strong [3:29 PM] reports: 'But in the context of a preseason game, it didn't matter. What mattered was how Losman threw the ball, how he saw the field, how he reacted to what the Broncos' defense showed him, and how he carried himself.'

Marker Calling All Youth Athletes – Free Mouthguards [3:29 PM] reports: 'Dentists from the Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, a Kaleida Health facility, will be providing free mouthguards and proper fittings for amateur athletes that will be attending Buffalo Bills training camp in Rochester.'

Marker Bills’ problem remains offensive line [12:51 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Eric Moulds took the blame for the interception, telling Bledsoe, “I’ll make that play during the regular season,” but the Bills’ malfunctioning starting offense wasn’t the fault of its QB, wideouts or Travis Henry. This was totally on the offensive line.'

Marker Dolphins should show interest in Bills' Henry [12:50 PM]
Orlando Sentinel reports: Henry, a Frostproof native, would be highly motivated for a return to his home state, given all the attention and adulation being showered on second-year pro Willis McGahee and his phenomenal comeback from a devastating knee injury.

Marker J.P.'s a two-way threat in debut [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He got tattooed pretty good by the defenders," Mularkey said. "I think it was a wake-up call that this is a different level and a big deal of hits are at a greater speed with more velocity and strength."'

Marker Start Time for Detroit Game Changed [7:12 AM] reports: 'Please be advised that the start time of the Bills final preseason game on Thursday, Sept. 2 at Detroit has been changed from 8:00 PM (ET) to 7:00 PM (ET).'

Marker After that first hit, Losman shows he has what it takes [5:30 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'There was a method to Mularkey's madness in calling a quarterback draw for the first play of the NFL career of the young man who could end up being Buffalo's quarterback for a very long time. “He got tattooed pretty good by the defenders, and I think it was a wakeup call that it is a different level and they do hit at a greater speed with more velocity and strength,” Mularkey said.'

Marker Coach liked win but seeks to improve [5:29 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“We stayed persistent with the run game, and I think our defense held up pretty well. I can tell there are things we need to work on, just from the naked eye, and there may be more after the film. But for the most part, it's a good win all the way around.”'

Marker Bills may have a top-notch tandem [5:28 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The only thing Henry lacks is the explosiveness to make him a threat to score every time his number is called. A dozen or so NFL running backs have that talent, and a healthy McGahee might be in that select fraternity.'

Marker Inside slant [5:27 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey is unable - or willing - to put a timetable on when Williams will return to full strength, but it's clear that he's missing valuable work. At some point, it could become impossible for him to start, meaning the Bills would open the year with a backup costing them $38 million.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:26 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Incumbent FS Izelle Reese has responded to the presence of Coy Wire competing for his starting job and remains No. 1 on the depth chart.'

Marker Notes, quotes [5:25 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The Bills have been rained off of their grass practice fields at St. John Fisher College twice so far yet have still managed to practice outside thanks to an arrangement with a nearby high school. East Rochester High School, located just a mile down the street, has the same artificial synthetic playing surface on its football field as used at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "It (sheds) the water very well," coach Mike Mularkey said. "The players like it because their joints and knees feel better working on it."'

Marker McGahee & Losman show promise and then some [5:24 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Can they keep both backs happy all season long? No. Does that matter? Not really.'

Marker Starters Satisfied [9:16 PM] reports: 'There is an area where the starters feel they must improve and that's senseless penalties. "We got two illegal formation penalties and that's something that Coach emphasised to us this week," wide receiver Josh Reed said. "Especially the receivers knowing who's on the ball and who's off the ball. That's something I'm sure we're going to have to hear about when we get back."'

Marker Quarterback Losman Shines in Debut [1:42 PM] reports: '"The only thing he (Mularkey) told me was, 'this play we're about to call J.P., you'll remember for the rest of your life,'" Losman said. "I didn't know what they were going to call, and they ended up calling quarterback draw. We started laughing because I kind of knew it was going to be that play."'

Marker McGahee, reserves give Bills edge over Broncos [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think that we showed what our mentality is going to be," Bledsoe said. "We showed that we are going to be hard-headed in the running game and that we are going to continue to pound it on people. . . . Eventually, we will get plays to open up because of that."'
