Marker Bills' Taylor goes out and plays quarterback [1:40 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Taylor’s pocket presence was close to perfect except for the one sack. His throws were dead on and he went 3-for-3 on his first three third downs. He only went 1-for-4 after that, but I think this outing was so much better than last week. The points weren’t there, but a quarterback was out there.'

Marker Rex: Bills won't name starting QB until right before opener [1:39 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Ryan admitted he and his coaching staff may very well know who the starter will be for the game, but that he has no reason to announce it publicly. He even went so far as to include all three QBs - Taylor, Manuel, and Matt Cassel - in the “keep them guessing” discussion.'

Marker Tyrod Taylor dazzles under center, EJ Manuel leads Bills to victory [1:38 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Not satisfied with a tie, the Bills went for two and Manuel connected with Bronson Hill to convert the two point try.'

Marker Observations - Bills 11, Browns 10 [1:37 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Manuel has been buried in the quarterback competition, not receiving the same type of opportunities as both Taylor and Cassel. Like Taylor, he couldn’t win the job with his performance tonight, but he had a lot to lose. To his credit, he stepped up when he needed to. The big test will be how the Bills react with rep counts, and more importantly, who he’s taking them with.'

Marker Report: Dareus balks at Bills' $90 million offer [1:36 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Dareus, entering the final year of his contract, is making $8.060 million for 2015. That, combined with the $90 million offer, makes it a per year average of just over $14 million.'

Marker Escondido native, Stanford grad Ricky Seale gets unexpected NFL shot with Buffalo Bills [1:35 AM]
KGTV-TV reports: 'Just a few days ago, Ricky Seale was an occupational therapist for autistic children in San Diego, but on Thursday night, he took the field for the Buffalo Bills.'

Marker Bills edge Browns, 11-10 [1:34 AM] reports: 'EJ Manuel played the second half at quarterback and was under duress for most of the night, but with a drive start at their own 14-yard line and 7:24 to play, Manuel marched the offense 86 yards and on a 4th-and-goal at the 14 hit Andre Davis for a 14-yard touchdown pass. Then Manuel made good on a two-point conversion with a quick strike to Bronson Hill, who came out of the backfield to make the catch. The conversion put the Bills up 11-10 with 1:31 left to play.'

Marker Darby opportunistic in rebound performance [1:33 AM] reports: '“It’s a blessing,” Darby said. “I’ve just got to keep carrying myself and keep competing”'

Marker Rex Ryan keeps QB choice close to his sweater vest [1:32 AM] reports: '“Again I’m not going to make that decision until we play Indy,” said Ryan in reference to the opponent for the regular season opener. “Competitive reasons or whatever, go for it. We don’t need to tell them. Until the league makes us tell them we can just go right up in there and not say anything. We may know, but why would we say any different? The quarterbacks we’re talking about they’re all different so plan for all three of them. I think that’s smart on our part.”'

Marker Bills RT Henderson steps on the gas [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Once you’re out of shape and you’re too heavy for your body, everybody that gets in that situation doesn’t have much success,” Kromer said. “Because you can’t move as well as you’re expecting. You’re expecting to be able to do things you can’t do, so, yeah, he was a little behind. And, gosh darn, did he work hard and come in in shape and ready to go.'

Marker Bills face Browns with depleted offense [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The player who might most be affected by this is Taylor, who is getting a chance to start against the Browns in his quest to win the starting quarterback job.

So I knew he’d get this opportunity.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign DL Red Bryant, RB Cierre Wood [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Bryant, a veteran defensive tackle, spent last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars before getting cut in the offseason.

Marker LeSean McCoy injury: Buffalo Bills RB expected back for Week 1 against Colts [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'At this point, the top five running backs on the Bills' depth chart are all on the injury report, and four of them are dealing with muscle injuries. Ryan is hoping to get Fred Jackson, Bryce Brown and Boobie Dixon back for the team's Week 3 preseason game against the Steelers, but that's no guarantee. Rookie Karlos Williams is out at least a couple weeks after a medical procedure, and now McCoy looks like he will miss a few weeks.'

Marker How will Buffalo Bills' injuries impact quarterback competition? [1:50 AM]

Marker Bills/Browns: Plenty at stake for several players [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'So what is Manuel actually playing for? If he’s not in the mix to start, at best he’s fighting for the backup role. But even that appears to be an uphill battle for him at this point. So, with hard decisions to be made to finalize the 53-man roster, the reality is, EJ Manuel could very well be playing to prove to the Bills coaching staff he deserves a spot.'

Marker Bills' Woods likes having Harvin here [1:42 AM]
