Marker Bills Name Three Players To Practice Squad [6:30 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The three are fullback Brian Edwards, running back Lennox Gordon and wide receiver Jeremy McDaniel, the team said Tuesday. They were among 13 players cut by the Bills on Sunday. Teams are allowed to keep as many as five extra players for their practice squads.'

Marker Reed Brings Along His Proteges [6:27 AM]
D & C reports: '"It's nice. They're my proteges," Reed says of Moulds and Price. "It's a sense of accomplishment for me. I try to set an example for everybody here. As far as receivers go, as a veteran, as a leader on the team for a lot of years, you take that upon yourself to be an example. When it comes down to it, the younger guys are going to look up to us veterans. We didn't stay around this long not knowing what we're doing."'

Marker Undrafted Free Agent Carpenter Makes It Big With Bills [6:16 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Bills coach Wade Phillips knows why Carpenter is getting ready for the Bills' season opener at Indianapolis on Sunday and not looking for a job. "He makes plays for us," said Phillips, who was impressed with the way Carpenter managed to zero in on the ball with special teams and in the defensive backfield. "He caught my eye a lot, and he deserves to be on this team."'

Marker Fox Sports Net Hires Marv Levy For NFL This Morning Pregame Show [8:13 PM]
Fox Sports reports: '"When we first announced the creation of the NFL THIS MORNING, we made clear our commitment to having outstanding talent in studio. Hiring Marv Levy is a key step in that direction," said Terenzio who, along with FSN executive vice president programming and production Arthur Smith, will serve as executive producers for NFL THIS MORNING. "Marv’s years of experience and track record as a winner place him in an elite class among NFL coaches. We’re thrilled to have him on board for both the pregame show and for FOX SPORTS NEWS."'

Marker Advice From A Champion Nice Guy [7:43 PM]
San Diego Union-Tribune reports: 'Levy wound up as a runner-up in four Super Bowls when he was handling the Buffalo Bills, not that that diminished him, in my thinking. His team taught us something about gallantry, about striving and failing and coming back to strive and fail some more. That was the Bills' triumph and it was all of ours.'

Marker Bills' Top Preseason Running Back Given Pink Slip [6:56 PM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'But Gray's departure didn't surprise veteran running back Thurman Thomas. "You don't always see everything when you're watching the game from the outside," Thomas said. "A guy might not be playing as well in practice as he is in a game. (Gray) made a lot of mistakes and that might have cost him."'

Marker Bills Cuts Offer Few Surprises [6:21 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The biggest surprise in that group was Gray, who had 156 yards on 43 carries with two touchdowns while averaging four yards per attempt during preseason. He seemed to have secured a roster spot in Saturday night’s 16-14 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In fact, with 50 yards on 10 carries plus a 36-yard run that was wiped out by a holding penalty, it appeared Gray, a free agent from Western New Mexico, might have moved ahead of fumble-prone Jonathan Linton on the depth chart. Also surprising was the waiving of McDaniel, who had eight receptions and a touchdown catch during the preseason.'

Marker Bills Don't Need Runner Gray After All [6:01 PM]
D & C reports: 'It was expected that the Bills would keep five running backs, and after Smith, Thomas, Jonathan Linton and Sam Gash, Gray appeared to be head and shoulders above the other candidates in training camp. And he very well might have been, but coach Wade Phillips decided to keep only the four running backs.'

Marker Flutie Hopes To Avoid Opening-Game Woes Of Past Bills QBs [5:59 PM]
D & C reports: 'Doug Flutie will be the 13th different season-opening starting quarterback in the 40-year history of the Buffalo Bills...The only ones to win their first start were Flores, Ferguson and Collins. Their overall opening-week record is 17-22.'

Marker Survival Of The Fittest [4:54 PM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Buffalo rode Doug Flutie all the way to the playoffs — after opening the season 0-3. The Bills became just the fifth team in NFL history to lose its first three and rebound to make the postseason. Flutie stepped in for an injured Rob Johnson and never relinquished the job, winning seven of 10 starts down the stretch. Despite that performance, Flutie is by no means guaranteed a starting role all season — Johnson owns a $25 million contract and he doesn't figure to just concede his spot.'

Marker Bills Give Starters A Tuneup For Opener [4:49 PM]
D & C reports: 'The starters on offense and defense are expected to play at least the first half, and perhaps into the third quarter if one group doesn't get enough work in the first 30 minutes. Doug Flutie will start at quarterback, Rob Johnson will likely take over at the start of the third quarter, and Alex Van Pelt may see action late in the fourth quarter.'

Marker Gerry Dulac's NFL Forecast [6:36 PM]
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports: '13. BUFFALO BILLS...Outlook: The Bills are counting on more miracles from quarterback Doug Flutie, and it could happen. The Bills have tried to build some depth, and they have some good young players like WR Eric Moulds and RB Antowain Smith. And don't forget that guy at defensive end -- Bruce Smith, who at 36 can still make big plays.'

Marker AFC East: December Figures To Settle New York-Miami Division Race [6:34 PM]
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports: 'The Bills had a good draft. Watch for Peerless Price to settle under some long throws from the revitalized Doug Flutie, and for cornerback Antoine Winfield's big-time hits. They also have a good blend of top youngsters (Moulds, guard Ruben Brown, linebacker Sam Cowart) to go with a strong array of vets. There's no lack of leadership here.'

Marker Great Expectations [7:24 AM]
National Post reports: '"I'm just a lot more relaxed this year," Flutie says. "I have the same intensity and the same attitude about it. I've always that had that drive and desire to be as good as I can be and win and all that. But I'm just so much more comfortable with the whole surroundings, locker room, guys in the locker room, on the field, the offence. It's just a much more relaxed situation for me."'
