Marker Training camp is a learning experience for Preston [5:00 AM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'The thing that impressed Preston the most at training camp? The Buffalo defense. “It surprises me how good our defense is. That’s not to say anything about the two teams we played (Indianapolis and Green Bay), but our defense is unbelievable,” he said. “In college, you might get beat on one or two plays, but out here — if you have an off day, you could get drubbed the whole practice.”'

Marker Bills Break Training Camp [4:59 AM] reports: '"J.P. is getting a little bit better every day," said Wyche. "The one thing we can not get frustrated with is not seeing giant leaps on certain days. You just don't see it in this league. Our defense is too strong of an opponent to practice against. He's going to make strides every day and if he takes two days to make a stride then we just live for two days with it. He's getting better and better every day. He's got all the skills and now it's just a matter of taking snaps."'

Marker Bills Break Camp [8:55 PM] reports: 'For this season's rookie class, their first experience in an NFL training camp lived up to its billing. "I think in every way preseason and all that kind of stuff it's work, Duke Preston said. It's going to the job every day and bringing your lunch so I think I was pleased with how I played and pleased with what went on."'

Marker Bills' domination of Dolphins sparked research [8:54 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The problem for the Dolphins was that defensive coordinator Tom Olivadotti was incredibly reluctant to send the blitz. I tracked the number of times Miami rushed three, four and five or more defenders, and the Dolphins rushed three defenders much more frequently than other teams. Against most teams, this worked. Their defense fared quite well statistically during a portion of Olivadotti's career, but Olivadotti wasn't willing to adjust the pass rush to the circumstances, and Miami paid the price against Kelly & Co.'

Marker As Bills break camp, most pleased with Losman [7:15 PM]
AP reports: '"I'm not too fond of my name right now," Losman said earlier this week, referring to the ever-chanting fans. "It's about that time to quiet things down."'

Marker Woodbury seeks September surprise [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So, how will it unfold for Woodbury? He's a long shot to make the team as a backup quarterback behind Losman, Kelly Holcomb and Shane Matthews, although Woodbury is a tremendous athlete with a strong arm and a long wind-up on his throws that calls to mind the Saints' Aaron Brooks. Woodbury took a few snaps Saturday in the Bills' win over the Green Bay Packers and completed his only pass for 4 yards.'

Marker Haddad turns heads in tight WR scramble [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I think it's bigger than anything I can control or anybody else can control," Haddad said. "I just have to play every play, whether I'm a first-string receiver or eighth string. It doesn't matter. I've got to do what I do every single play. If somebody takes notice of that, it's all I can ask, but beyond that, all I can really ask is for is an opportunity."'

Marker Herrion's death hits home for Bills lineman [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"He was a great guy, always positive, a person who lifted you up," Sape said. "It's really hard to believe, knowing he was a healthy guy and always upbeat and outgoing. To hear what happened, it's hard to take personally. I'm just hoping his family will be OK. Everybody looks at it as sports and a game, but we're people. When reality hits you, life just slows down. We're all trying to cope."'

Marker Bills Training Camp [9:36 PM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'You may have been asking yourself this, after watching Saturday's game… “what got into Rian Lindel?” The Bills veteran kicker is not known for his strong leg. But he hit one 54-yard field goal against the Packers and just missed another one wide to the right. Lindell says he made a slight adjustment in his set up last week that accounts for his new-found range.'

Marker Haddad Impresses the Bills [9:25 PM] reports: '"I guess as the years have gone by, it's always going to be a pressure situation, but I just have to focus on the task at hand and focus on the fact that it’s a marathon and not a sprint so I am just going to go out there and take everyday one day at a time one play at a time," Haddad explained.'

Marker OL Pruce among six Bills cut [5:07 PM]

Marker A Closer Look: Justin Geisinger [3:27 PM] reports: 'If you could play any other position what position would you play?

Marker AFC East preview: Pats are No. 1 until they lose [1:11 PM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'This is a good Bills team, especially on defense. And we know that Willis McGahee can run the ball. But if Losman struggles, all that will matter little. Losman is athletic and has the arrogance you like from the position, but until we see him do it in the regular season this team is a big question mark.'

Marker Some notes on Feuz, Bona and the Bills [12:26 PM]

Marker Edwards weighs in at tackle [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"They did a couple of things that they didn't do during the scrimmage," said safety Lawyer Milloy. "I think they used our aggressiveness on third down against us. (Favre) made a couple of throws that kept the drive alive. After we gave up that first touchdown, we made the necessary adjustments, which any defense does, and played pretty solid from that point on."'
