'The Bills head coach said he’s concerned about Dareus’ availability for the game Sunday. The former third-overall pick injured his ankle early in last week’s game at Carolina and came back in, but only played a total of 17 snaps.'
'The defensive tackle did not practice on Wednesday and sported a big brace to support his right ankle while doing some work on the side with the training staff. Considering the potential matchup against the Broncos, this is a tough game to lose Dareus for. One of the weaknesses of the Broncos offense is along the offensive line — specifically at left guard. It’s certainly been a disappointing start to the 2017 season for the Bills with Dareus.'
'“(Carolina) made plays last week and we didn’t,” McCoy added. “Simple as that. It is a different scheme but I do not think it makes that big of a difference. We have been doing this since camp and we know what to do, what not to do.”'
'“I think everyone’s seeing I’m back to myself and having fun again. I’m enjoying football again. It sucks at what happened, but it happened. It’s over and I’m learning from it, I’m growing, I’m developing. I’m a rookie, but no excuses. You have to keep moving forward.”'
'If Glenn is unable to play on Sunday and with Seantrel Henderson still serving his five game suspension, rookie Dion Dawkins could be thrust into the starting lineup against one of the most potent pass rushers in the league, Von Miller.'
'The Bills rank #32 out of 32 on the list, released Monday. Forbes puts the team’s value at $1.6 billion.
'“We’re looking at everything,” McDermott said Monday. “Some of the deep shots we had up, called up down the field didn’t work out the way we wanted them to.” That may indicate that McDermott and the Bills are focused this week on firing the ball downfield, looking to hit some big plays, or at least loosen things up for the run game.'
'“I am concerned, but it’s day-to-day at this point. He’s got an ankle (injury) right now,” said McDermott of Dareus. “He’s not going to practice today and we’ll know a little bit more going forward. But we have to make sure we have a contingency plan in place.”'
'“[He’s] a really good story, a guy who has really bought into the message that Mike Waufle is delivering in that defensive line room and what we’re trying to get across from a defensive standpoint,” said Frazier earlier this month. “The energy he played with, the fact that he attacked the weight issues the way he did, and his attitude. He’s been terrific in that way and we saw tremendous improvement on the field.”'
'“You’re in it to win it, and when we don’t win, there’s not a whole lot you can get excited about in our business. It’s all about winning the games, that’s what we work so hard for, going all the way back to the offseason program… If we have a poor performance and we win, that’s a happy locker room. It’s all about winning,” Frazier said.'
