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.'

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 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]

Marker Joint practice a success, say Ryan, Pettine [1:42 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“The Bills defense I thought had the upper hand,” he said of his perspective from spending the whole practice watching Cleveland’s offense. “Some of our guys had different tempos. They have to understand the guy across from them is going at game-type speed, other than the live tackling part.'

Marker Bills still waiting for tight ends to emerge [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Invisible early, Clay has found his stride. Beyond this $38 million investment? Nothing is guaranteed. In “tight end heaven,” as MarQueis Gray put offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s offense, the tight end group has been erratic. Wildly inconsistent. Still a major unknown. Arguably no position group as a whole has more to prove into the home stretch of training camp.'

Marker Taylor Fever born from few options [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But the optimism surrounding Taylor is mainly a referendum on Cassel, an uninspiring choice to lead any NFL team at this stage of his career. You know what he is? A poor man’s Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitz, who was drafted in the same year (2005) and same round (seventh) as Cassel, has been a far more productive and mature quarterback over the latter stages of their careers – and he got run out of Buffalo.'

Marker McCoy joins list of Bills’ walking wounded [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Not going to say it is a pull, we will find out what it is,” Ryan said. “The trainer said the hamstring is intact, it is not off the bone, so that is a real positive. But we are getting a MRI on it to see the extent of it. Hopefully, it is not a pull, just a strain.”'

Marker McCoy suffers a hamstring injury during Bills practice [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Coach Rex Ryan, who looked at a loss of words as he tried to wend his way through all the injuries, said McCoy will undergo an MRI exam, but the good news is that initially it looks like it might just be a strain, and that the muscle is not “off the bone.”'

Marker ‘Johnny Football’ still makes it fun [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'During an 11-on-11 session against Buffalo’s vaunted defense, he was classic “Johnny Football,’’ rolling left, coming back all the way right and firing a pass for a touchdown in the back of the end zone where only running back Timothy Flanders could catch it.'

Marker Who is left at running back for Buffalo? [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'On a few occasions, the Bills weren't able to finish drills because of how many players were injured. The Bills had only two healthy running backs once McCoy went down and they were also short four wide receivers. The Bills had to cut a 7-on-7 drill short after McCoy got injured, and the practice also ended a bit early on the field the Bills' first-team offense was working on.'
