Marker Williams' improvement key for Bills [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Williams has played good football the past seven weeks, and line coach Jim McNally says the right tackle has become an asset on the offense.

He suggested that I have a biopsy to determine whether there actually was cancer present. The biopsy verified that there was.'

Marker Shelton serves up 'pancakes' for the Bills [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'McGahee has topped 100 yards in five of his six NFL starts, and while the offensive line has been given credit for its improved play of late, McGahee is quick to remind that Shelton has played an equally integral role in the Bills' recent success running the ball. "He's like the unsung hero of the team right now," said McGahee. "He's been phenomenal as far as blocking. He didn't get a lot of credit, but I try to recognize him every time I see it. He's plugging all the time."'

Marker McGahee runs home [4:59 AM]

Marker Bills' faith in McGahee paying off [4:55 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Donahoe took heat for the move, and it didn't make sense. There was a chance there to pull off a steal, and Donahoe not only recognized it, he took advantage of it. Now, he and the Bills look like geniuses.'

Marker Inside slant [4:54 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: '"A lot of things have to happen outside of what we're doing (to make the playoffs)," Mularkey admitted. "We can only control what happens on Sunday's with our opponent.

Marker Buffalo (5-6) at Miami (2-9) [9:50 PM]
AP reports: '``It's almost obvious that they're mentally tough when you overcome the 0-4 start,'' Mularkey said. ``There's been many a times that they've had chances to say, `That's it.' And not one of them yet have done that.'''

Marker McGahee a big ticket heading home to play Miami [9:38 PM]
AP reports: '``I'm excited,'' guard Chris Villarrial added. ``I mean, the guy could've packed it in a long time ago. But he never let anybody tell him that he couldn't play anymore. And he's come in and proved it.'''

Marker Homecoming for Willis [9:37 PM] reports: '“The Miami-Buffalo rivalry is something, that regardless of the records, will be a huge game,” linebacker London Fletcher explained. “I expect a very physical ballgame, a real battle this Sunday. I'm sure they want to play well for their new head coach, play well for their home crowd as well."'

Marker McGahee Returns Home for Dolphins Game [9:35 PM] reports: 'McGahee said he's already reserved at least 80 tickets for high school friends and family and he expects more requests to come in as the week progresses.'

Marker Seattle Walk Broke Monotony [4:38 PM] reports: 'Located right on the water in Seattle, which is a beautiful place, we decided to take a 15-20 walk around the city. The players enjoyed themselves because it broke the monotony. Following the walk we returned to the meeting room to finish our meeting. Anytime a team has the opportunity to do something like this to break the monotony it's helpful.'

Marker Bills RB Henry out indefinitely with right leg injury [4:38 PM]
AP reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday tests showed no break to Henry's bone. But he declined to give more details and said Henry is out indefinitely.'

AP reports: 'The Buffalo Bills will hit Dolphins quarterback A.J. Feeley on Sunday, probably early and often.'

Marker McGahee gives Bills more options [12:15 PM]

Marker Mastering the mind game [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It was probably the 10-0 deficit last week against the Rams," Mularkey said. "A lot of the same, similar things happened with the turnover and the score. . . To me, that was a defining moment that these guys are a special group. I've said that before."'

Marker A band of brothers forges the comeback [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Then I walked over to Frank Reich's locker, where he was sitting with quarterbacks coach Jim Shofner while they discussed plans for the second half. Frank looked up at me almost apologetically, and I felt the need to say something encouraging to him. "Frank," I said, "they tell me that you were the quarterback at the University of Maryland and that you led your team to the greatest comeback victory in collegiate football history. Well, today you are going to lead us to the greatest comeback win in the history of professional football."'
