Marker Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor hurt most by roster reshuffling, says NFL.com [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Tyrod no longer has to worry about general manager Doug Whaley's favorite draft pick, EJ Manuel, taking his job. That's the good news. The bad news? His No. 2 receiver right now is ... Walt Powell? Losing Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin wouldn't hurt most teams that much, but any receiver group led by an injury-prone No. 1 wideout like Sammy Watkins needs depth.

Groy started seven games and proved to be a solid option. With Wood entering the final year of his contract, and guard Richie Incognito getting older, depth is crucial for the Bills on the interior of the offensive line. With Groy and the signing of Vlad Ducasse, the Bills have plenty of depth on the offensive line, although right tackle is still a weakness.'

You got to go out there and compete with everything that you do.''

Officiating was just a way that I could kind of stay involved. You don’t have to worry about injured kids or who you’re going to play, you just get the best part which is the game.”'
