Marker Bills to be without Darby, Salas and Watkins [12:08 PM] reports: '“I’m just going to go in there and expect to play my game,” said Robert Woods. “I always approach the game like I’m a number one receiver. I’ve just got to step up and make plays. I may get a few more targets, so I’ve got to be an open target.”'

Marker Can new offensive coordinator change Bills’ course? [9:43 AM]

Marker Report says Sammy Watkins out Sunday against Arizona [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The weather shouldn't be a factor Sunday in New Era Field, which means Dan Carpenter can handle kickoff duties. Scratching Gay would allow the Bills to activate rookie running back Jonathan Williams for the first time this season, which could provide a boost to the running game.'

Marker Pregame primer: Everything you need to know for Bills-Cardinals, plus five things to watch for [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Ryan is clearly desperate for a win. Firing offensive coordinator Greg Roman after two games and replacing him with Anthony Lynn certainly looks like a panic move. If the losses continue to mount, the head coach might be the next position that gets changed. Players have said all the expected things about having Ryan's back, but the best way they can show that is with an inspired effort against a powerful Cardinals team.'

Marker Bills’ change of coordinators eliminates one more excuse [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Now Anthony Lynn gets his turn as coordinator, while saddled with Roman’s offensive system. Lynn will streamline the offense in an attempt to get more out of this wondrous collection of offensive talent. He said his head is spinning. It ought to be. Lynn has never been a coordinator in the NFL or called plays in a regular-season game.'

Marker Larry Fitzgerald continues to forge a lasting legacy as his clock winds down [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Fitzgerald is playing far younger than 33 years old. He caught a career-high 109 passes last year, and entered Week Three third in the NFL with 14 catches for 162 yards. His three receiving touchdowns -- 99th, 100th and 101st of his career -- are tied for the league lead.'

Marker Bills meet Cardinals with season already on the brink [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Yeah, they really do. Having dropped their first two games to the Ravens and the Jets, the Bills are already in emergency mode in the infancy of the 2016 season. Hard to believe that summer just officially ended a few days ago, and the Bills are on the brink of irrelevancy, though one can argue that over the past 16 years, irrelevancy is a perpetual state of being for this franchise.'

Marker Buffalo Bills vs. Arizona Cardinals preview and prediction [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'All eyes will be on Lynn as he takes over the play-calling duties, and first and foremost on everyone’s mind is can he get the passing game working? Tyrod Taylor is still struggling with the same things he did last year, and most prominently, his continued inability to get Sammy Watkins consistently involved.'

Marker Buffalo Bills meet with former New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The purpose of the meaning has not revealed, but it's possible that Buffalo is looking at Coughlin as a potential consultant or football czar.'

Marker Q&A: Who are the real Cardinals?, more [1:54 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'They are a team that thrives on momentum and playing from ahead, they struggle when they get themselves in an early hole and tend to press as a group trying to make plays.  If they get out fast and early, it could be a long day for the Buffalo Bills, but if the Arizona Cardinals come out and let the Bills get their offense going, it is going to be a dogfight for the Cardinals.'

Marker Bills look to climb out of 0-2 hole against Cardinals [1:53 AM]
Dunkirk Observer reports: 'They say the NFL is 16 one-week seasons, so the Bills will have to try and put the previous two "seasons" behind them, in order to get on track to try and end the longest playoff drought in any of the four major professional sports, a drought that all Bills fans have had more than enough of.'

Marker Tranquil Tyrod Taylor in middle of Bills' circus [1:52 AM]
Newport News Daily Press reports: 'The Ryans are football's Kardashians, and adding them to a volatile franchise such as the Bills carried obvious risk. Dating to Hall of Famer Mary Levy's departure after the 1997 season, none of Buffalo's next six head coaches — Wade Phillips, Gregg Williams, Mike Mularkey, Dick Jauron, Chan Gailey and Doug Marrone — lasted four seasons.'

Marker Here’s why Rex Ryan is not totally to blame for Bills’ failings [1:51 AM]
New York Post reports: 'If the Pegulas end up firing Ryan, the coaching money they would have thrown away since the end of the 2014 season, when Marrone left with his buyout, would exceed a staggering $22 million (Marrone’s $4 million, the $16.5 million of the last three years of Ryan’s contract and the reported $2.4 million remaining on Roman’s contract, which runs though next season).'

Marker Former OU center Ikard’s uncertain NFL path leads back to Buffalo [1:50 AM]

Marker Saturday's Arizona Coverage [3:10 PM] reports: Click here

Marker Bills' defense has plenty of fixing to do of its own [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The embarrassment from being shredded by Ryan Fitzpatrick for 374 yards on national television lingers for a group that was so determined to make a strong comeback from last season's fall from fourth to 19th in league.'

Marker The Bills say Greg Roman installed too many plays. How does installing plays actually work? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You pretty much have your bread-and-butter plays, and then you find plays to attack the defense,” receiver Robert Woods said. “If it’s a man (coverage) team, you find ways to attack man teams. If it’s a zone team, you try to…” he trailed off. “So it’s based on the opponent.”'

Marker After being stepped on in a walk-through, Sammy Watkins is questionable for Cardinals game [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"If a guy’s that good, we’ll play him," Ryan said. "If it’s somebody on the roster who’s not any good, we won’t play him. He’s a special guy and if he can play then we’ll dress him."'

Marker Everything you need to know about the Bills heading into Week Three against Arizona [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Lynn will call in plays to quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who will wear a wrist band. Lynn's hope is that will speed up the offense and give Taylor more time at the line of scrimmage. "Tyrod's going to get it a whole lot quicker, and we we make changes at the line of scrimmage, it should happen a little quicker," Lynn said, adding that Taylor's ability to audible will be "cut back" some.'

Marker Inside the NFL: Bills great Phil Hansen assesses Carson Wentz [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Honestly, coming in, it was like, ‘Wow! I got drafted in the second round. They must think I can play. Well, let’s see if I can play,’” he recalled the other day. “I didn’t know if I could compete. I had no clue. That first week of training camp, there’s a lot of stuff going through your mind. And it was either find another gear and get into it or get out.'

Marker New Era Cap Co. wants to shave a Bills logo into your hair [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'All of the services are free. Shaves are available only on a very limited, first-come, first-served basis. They will be located at the New Era Gate near the team store. They’ll be camped out from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.'

Marker Short-term memory key for Bills' CB Stephon Gilmore [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Confidence has never been an issue with Gilmore, and it still isn’t. He’s steadfast in his belief that he’s one of the best cover corners in the NFL. However, not thinking the Jets game might have been the poorest of his NFL career puts him on a lonely island by himself because the consensus in Bills Nation is that Gilmore could not have played worse.'

Marker Sammy Watkins could miss Cardinals game with foot injury [1:52 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills also listed cornerback Ronald Darby (hamstring), tight end Charles Clay (knee) and safety Colt Anderson (foot) as questionable. For the second week in a row, left tackle Cordy Glenn is out with an ankle sprain meaning Cyrus Koaundjio will again get the start.'

Marker Rex and Rob Ryan 'want to fight' against Cardinals after getting 'bloodied' agai [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Obviously we got our nose bloodied real good last week," Bills defensive assistant Rob Ryan said Thursday. "That doesn't need to be our style of play. That was surprising. We didn't execute the plan as well as we should have and you have to take your hat off to the Jets. The did a better job making plays than we did, and it was a long damn day that's for sure."'

Marker Buffalo Bills have gotten fewest snaps from rookies in NFL [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Well we had some holes," Whaley said at the time. "We had to have a makeover. If we didn't, we'd be going into the season with nobody so we were in that situation and we're very excited with how we filled those holes. We filled those holes better than we thought we'd be able to so we're excited about it.'
