Marker Workhorse Gray Looks Like Darkhorse For Bills [1:28 PM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'With the Buffalo backfield depleted by injuries, he could become the biggest longshot running back to make the Bills' active squad out of training camp since Benedictine's Jamie Mueller in 1987...The Bills lack depth at running back with promising rookie Shawn Bryson lost for the season with a knee injury. Antowain Smith, the top running back last season, says his torn groin muscle is still a bit sore. Veteran Thurman Thomas can still carry the load at 33, but not all of it. Thomas has adjusted to his role as a part-time back. Jonathan Linton had trouble holding on to the ball at Seattle on Saturday.'

Marker Bills Owner Wilson Named Winner Of Pete Rozelle Award [6:39 AM]

August 17, 1999

Marker On The Brink [6:26 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'The Buffalo Bills rushed for 188 yards in their exhibition opener against Seattle. Not too bad an effort. But subtract quarterback Rob Johnson's 53 yards, remember that starter Antowain Smith is hobbled by sore groin and add in the fumbles of backup Jonathan Linton and suddenly, the Buffalo ground game is a lot scarier on paper than it is on the field.'

Marker Injuries Open Door For Bills' Linton [6:23 AM]
D & C reports: 'Linton fumbled three times, twice deep in his own territory on Buffalo' first two series. In the second quarter, he was stuffed on a third-and-goal-at-the-one plunge. On fourth down, he fumbled again, making a meaningless recovery. "I have no excuses for that," said Linton, who found himself the center of intense media attention yesterday after practice. "I'm not saying the ball was slick or my arms were wet or somebody knocked it out. That should never happen. I'm a running back. I know they're going to go after the ball. Nothing really happened, it was just a lack of focus and concentration."'
