Position Listing
 
MarQueis Gray
News
The Bills have been awarded tight end MarQueis Gray, who had been placed on waivers by Minnesota. The team has released running back Philip Tanner to make room for Gray on the roster.

Gray has played in just two games this season and caught one pass.

Lee Smith
News
Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught three passes for a team-high 157 yards and one touchdown while receiving six targets in his team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8.

Watkins could have had two touchdowns on the day, but he appeared to slow down while close to the end zone on a huge play and was caught from behind on what would have been an 89-yard score. Still, even though quarterback Kyle Orton completed just 10 passes in the blowout win, Watkins was able to deliver a big line on the strength of the 84-yard play and a 61-yard fourth-quarter catch. He's up to 38 receptions, 590 yards and five touchdowns in eight games.

Several other Bills were able to reach paydirt as well in the win, with Robert Woods catching three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, tight end Scott Chandler scoring a 12-yard touchdown on his only reception and tight end Lee Smith managing two catches for five yards and a score.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Da'Norris Searcy
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

The Bills were able to intercept four passes, with three coming against starter Geno Smith in the first quarter and one coming from the arm of backup Michael Vick, who took over and played most of the game. Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Larry Dean
News
The Bills signed former Vikings linebacker Larry Dean and placed safety Jonathan Meeks (neck) on injured reserve, reports the Buffalo News.
Aaron Williams
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Garrison Sanborn
News
The Bills have ruled out wide receivers Marcus Easley (knee) and Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) for their Week 7 battle against the visiting Vikings. Also out is linebacker Ty Powell (ankle).

The team is otherwise healthy - the rest of those on its injury report Friday are probable. They are long snapper Garrison Sanborn (knee), safeties Aaron Williams (wrist/neck) and Da'Norris Searcy (knee), linebacker Brandon Spikes (ribs) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee).

Marcell Dareus
News
Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus went for X-rays following Sunday's game against the Patriots. He hurt his hand late in the game.
Chris Hairston
News
The Bills put right tackle Chris Hairston on the reserve/Non-Football Illness list.

Anthony Dixon
News
Bills running back Anthony Dixon rushed for 35 yards on 10 carries and added two receptions for 13 yards in his team's 22-9 loss to the Dolphins Thursday.

Dixon split touches nearly evenly with teammate Bryce Brown, outcarrying Brown 10-6 but seeing limited work in the passing game. If Fred Jackson is able to play in Week 12 against the Jets, Dixon could have a hard time finding more than a few touches. He's managed 278 yards on 68 carries along with 28 yards on five catches but has failed to score a touchdown.

Brandon Spikes
News
As expected, the Bills have officially ruled Fred Jackson (groin) and Ty Powell (ankle) out for Week 8 against the Jets, the team announced.

Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) was the only player listed as doubtful on the final injury report on Friday. Marcus Easley (knee) and Aaron Williams (neck) were labeled as questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ron Brooks (groin), Brandon Spikes (ribs), Sammy Watkins (groin) and Mario Williams (thumb) were all deemed probable.

Ross Cockrell
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Jets: running back Fred Jackson (groin), wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and Marcus Easley (knee), linebacker Ty Powell (ankle), cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Phillip Tanner and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson and Powell were both already ruled out for the game, while Goodwin was doubtful to play. Easley is inactive after being listed as questionable, but the team's other questionable player, safety Aaron Williams (neck), is active for the game. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (groin), defensive end Mario Williams (thumb) and cornerback Ron Brooks (groin) are also active after being listed as probable to play against the Jets.

Scott Chandler
News
Bills tight end Scott Chandler caught three of six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. He'll visit the Dolphins on Thursday.
Kraig Urbik
News
The Bills announced that running back Anthony Dixon will get the start in Sunday's battle with the Jets.

The team lost its top two running backs in Week 7 and turned to Dixon to finish the game. He'll draw the first snap against the Jets but should rotate with Bryce Brown, with the team leaning on whomever performs best. The Bills also looked to boost the offense line by inserting interior lineman Kraig Urbik into the starting lineup at left guard.

Marquise Goodwin
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 11 matchup with the Dolphins: running backs Fred Jackson (groin) and Phillip Tanner, cornerback Ron Brooks (groin), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs), defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee), linebacker Randell Johnson and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson, Brooks and Goodwin were all listed as questionable to play, while Wynn had already been ruled out on the team's final injury report. Wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is active after being listed as questionable, as is wide receiver Mike Williams, who will give the team another option with Goodwin sidelined.

Injury
Ankle - Full practice. Probable for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Jets
Ron Brooks
News
Four Bills have been deemed questionable for the Thursday night game against Miami, the most significant being running back Fred Jackson (groin). The others are cornerback Ron Brooks (groin) and wideouts Marcus Easley (knee) and Marquise Goodwin (ribs).
Injury
Groin - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Jets
Preston Brown
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Jordan Gay
News
The Panthers waived or released nine players: receivers Toney Clemons, Kealoha Pilares and Marvin McNutt, linebacker Anthony Morales, defensive ends Alex Hall and Craig Roh, punter Jordan Gay, offensive tackle Oscar Johnson and defensive tackle Linden Gaydosh.
Keith Rivers
News
Several Bills skill position players are active for Week 4's matchup with the Texans after being listed as probable to play, including quarterback EJ Manuel (abdomen), running back C.J. Spiller (chest) and wide receivers Sammy Watkins (ribs) and Robert Woods (ankle).

Defensive backs Ron Brooks (illness) and Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) are also active after being listed as probable on the final injury report. Linebacker Keith Rivers (groin) is active after being listed as doubtful to play. The linebacker has been sidelined since Week 1.

Dan Carpenter
News
Bills kicker Dan Carpenter made three of his four field-goal attempts in his team's 22-9 loss to the Dolphins Saturday.

Carpenter managed to connect on field goals of 33, 21 and 46 yards to put his team out to a 9-3 lead early in the third quarter, but the game got away from the Bills at that point, with the Dolphins scoring 19 unanswered points on two touchdowns, a field goal and a safety. Carpenter's miss came on a 47-yard attempt early in the fourth quarter that sailed wide left. His next matchup comes against the Jets in Week 12.

Injury
Right groin - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Jets
Randell Johnson
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 11 matchup with the Dolphins: running backs Fred Jackson (groin) and Phillip Tanner, cornerback Ron Brooks (groin), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs), defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee), linebacker Randell Johnson and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson, Brooks and Goodwin were all listed as questionable to play, while Wynn had already been ruled out on the team's final injury report. Wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is active after being listed as questionable, as is wide receiver Mike Williams, who will give the team another option with Goodwin sidelined.

Mario Williams
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Marcus Easley
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 11 matchup with the Dolphins: running backs Fred Jackson (groin) and Phillip Tanner, cornerback Ron Brooks (groin), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs), defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee), linebacker Randell Johnson and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson, Brooks and Goodwin were all listed as questionable to play, while Wynn had already been ruled out on the team's final injury report. Wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is active after being listed as questionable, as is wide receiver Mike Williams, who will give the team another option with Goodwin sidelined.

Fred Jackson
News
The Bills didn't practice Wednesday because of the massive snowstorm in Buffalo. Had they practiced, running back Fred Jackson would have been limited with a groin injury.

Jackson sat out Week 11 after suffering a setback with the injury Week 10 against Kansas City. Buffalo is scheduled to host the Jets on Sunday.

Injury
Groin - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Jets
Cyril Richardson
News
The Bills declared wideouts Mike Williams and Marcus Easley (knee), cornerback Ron Brooks (groin), linebacker Randell Johnson, running back Phillip Tanner, guard Cyril Richardson and safety Jerome Couplin inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Ikponmwosa Igbinosun
News
The Bills trimmed their active roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Xavius Boyd, DT Landon Cohen, TE Dominique Jones, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Sam Miller, P Brian Moorman, QB Jordan Palmer, FB Evan Rodriguez, WR Naaman Roosevelt, C Jared Wheeler, QB Jeff Tuel, S Deon Broomfield, LB Jimmy Gaines, WR T.J. Graham, WR Caleb Holley, DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, DE Bryan Johnson, S Kenny Ladler, C Doug Legursky and G Antoine McClain.
Eric Wood
News
The Bills starting offensive line will see its first playing time together in a game Sunday against the Bears, with Cordy Glenn, Chris Williams, Eric Wood, Erik Pears and Seantrel Henderson lining up left to right, the Buffalo News reports.

The Bills are walking into a hostile environment in Chicago, and the fact that the starting five on the offensive line didn't see any time together could make things difficult on running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson if the linemen suffer a communications breakdown. It also bodes well for the Chicago defense, providing an increased opportunity that a pass rusher breaks through unblocked on a missed assignment.

Bryan Johnson
News
The Bills have promoted rookie defensive end Bryan Johnson from the practice squad to the live roster. The move was likely precipitated by the possible loss of fellow defensive end Jarius Wynn to an injury for the Thursday night game against Miami.
Ty Powell
News
Several Bills who were on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against Kansas City. The list includes wideouts Robert Woods (back) and Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and linebacker Ty Powell (ankle).
Stephon Gilmore
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

The Bills were able to intercept four passes, with three coming against starter Geno Smith in the first quarter and one coming from the arm of backup Michael Vick, who took over and played most of the game. Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Bryce Brown
News
Bills running back Bryce Brown rushed for only 14 yards on six carries but also caught seven of his team-high 10 targets for 57 yards in his team's 22-9 loss to the Dolphins Thursday.

Brown managed a few quality plays early, including a 19-yard reception followed immediately by an eight-yard rush, but largely struggled in the game, he lost yardage on three of his four touches in the third quarter and finished that quarter with a net of zero yards. He posted a quality performance against the Chiefs last week but has produced subpar numbers in his other two games, particularly while running the ball.

Brown still has the chance to be a contributor over the remainder of the season in the C.J. Spiller role of the offense. He'll look for a better showing in Week 12 against the Jets.

Stefan Charles
News
Bills defensive lineman Stefan Charles is active for Week 3 against the Chargers, after being listed as probable for the game with a hip injury. 
Erik Pears
News
Bills rookie offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio said Friday that he has had "a lot of reps" as the right guard with the first team in practice, the Buffalo News reports.

It's unclear whether Kouandjio is close to sliding into the starting lineup over the struggling Erik Pears, but coach Doug Marrone said the rookie "absolutely might" be active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Kouandjio has been a regular on the inactive list this season. He has seen work with the scout team as right tackle in practice, but it appears the team could be preparing him for a move inside.

C.J. Spiller
News
With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 

Injury
Shoulder - IR. Designated for return
Kyle Williams
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Jerry Hughes
News
Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes notched five tackles and 1.5 sacks in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hughes split a sack early in the third quarter Sunday, but his solo sack proved critical, as it turned a first-and-goal in the fourth quarter into second-and-14, a play which also resulted in a sack. Hughes is up to 5.5 sacks on the season, with all but one coming in his last three games. He'll square off with the Jets in Week 8.

Duke Williams
News
Speaking on WGR 550 AM in Buffalo on Friday, Bills general manager Doug Whaley said that the safety who will start in Jarius Byrd's old spot will come off the existing roster. Whaley expects a competition between Duke Williams, Jonathan Meeks and Da'Norris Searcy, ESPN says. 
Mike Williams
News
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 11 matchup with the Dolphins: running backs Fred Jackson (groin) and Phillip Tanner, cornerback Ron Brooks (groin), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs), defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee), linebacker Randell Johnson and offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio.

Jackson, Brooks and Goodwin were all listed as questionable to play, while Wynn had already been ruled out on the team's final injury report. Wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is active after being listed as questionable, as is wide receiver Mike Williams, who will give the team another option with Goodwin sidelined.

Frank Summers
News
Bills fullback Frank Summers picked up a carry Week 7 against the Vikings.

Summers gained 3 yards on his only carry of the contest. He did manage to catch a pass, but lost a yard on the play. Summers will take on the Jets Week 8.

Injury
Neck - Full practice. Probable for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Jets
Sammy Watkins
News
Bills general manager Doug Whaley has defended the trade with Cleveland that resulted in the drafting of rookie wideout Sammy Watkins. The deal has been questioned in the wake of superior rookie receiver efforts around the NFL from the likes of Kelvin Benjamin, Odell Beckham and Allen Robinson, all of whom would not have cost the team a first-round pick in 2015.

"I'm sure you're trying to get into whether I feel the trade was worth what we did give up," Whayey told WGR-AM. "And I say it like this: I can count at least three games that he was the integral part of us winning. I would hate to see our record if he was not on our team."

Watkins has 45 catches for 649 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games. He has been hot and cold with 32 yards or less in half of those contests. But he also does not have a premier quarterback throwing to him nor another top-level receiver to lure defensive attention away from him.

Injury
Groin - Full practice. Probable for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Jets
Bacarri Rambo
News
Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin's season has officially come to an end. The Bills announced Monday they placed McKelvin on the season-ending injured reserve list with a fractured ankle. McKelvin suffered the injury in the first half of Buffalo's 22-9 defeat to Miami in Week 11. He finishes the season with 48 total tackles.

In a corresponding move, the Bills have signed former Washington defensive back Bacarri Rambo to take McKelvin's place on the 53-man active roster.

Kenny Ladler
News
The Bills placed safety Kenny Ladler on IR with an arm injury, ending his season. Ladler played in two games, making four tackles.

Corbin Bryant
News
The Bills defense racked up six turnovers and four sacks in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8. The Jets fumbled the ball four times in the loss, losing two, while throwing four interceptions in a poor all-around effort from the offense.

Leading the Bills' sack charge was defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who delivered 1.5 sacks despite dealing with a minor back injury during the game. Defensive end Mario Williams also had a half a sack as well as a forced fumble, while defensive linemen Corbin Bryant contributed a sack and a forced fumble and defensive end Jarius Wynn added a sack of his own.

The Bills were able to intercept four passes, with three coming against starter Geno Smith in the first quarter and one coming from the arm of backup Michael Vick, who took over and played most of the game. Linebacker Preston Brown, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safeties Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy each picked off a pass in the winning effort.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.

Chris Gragg
News
Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan caught five of his six targets for 63 yards in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hogan's big highlight came on the team's final drive, when he hauled in a 28-yard pass with less than 30 seconds left in the game to put the Bills on the two-yard line with a chance to take the lead, which they did with just one second left on the clock. It was Hogan's second game with five receptions and six targets, and he was second on the team in receiving yards to rookie Sammy Watkins in Week 7.

Tight end Scott Chandler chipped in three receptions on six targets for 36 yards after posting his first 100-yard performance of the season in the team's previous game. Tight end Chris Gragg caught both of his targets for 19 yards. No. 2 wide receiver Robert Woods managed only 10 receiving yards while catching four of his five targets in the win.

Seantrel Henderson
News
The Bills starting offensive line will see its first playing time together in a game Sunday against the Bears, with Cordy Glenn, Chris Williams, Eric Wood, Erik Pears and Seantrel Henderson lining up left to right, the Buffalo News reports.

The Bills are walking into a hostile environment in Chicago, and the fact that the starting five on the offensive line didn't see any time together could make things difficult on running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson if the linemen suffer a communications breakdown. It also bodes well for the Chicago defense, providing an increased opportunity that a pass rusher breaks through unblocked on a missed assignment.

Kiko Alonso
News
Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso is pleased with his progress as he is three months removed from ACL surgery.

"I’ve started running already," Alonso told Buffalobills.com. "I’m just doing straight line running, so I’m doing everything but cutting right now. Obviously I’m progressing to full speed running. I’m doing everything, but I’m limited."

Alonso said his knee feels great. However, he is being cautious with his recovery, which usually takes 7-9 months after surgery.

"My knee feels great," he said. "It definitely doesn’t feel like there’s anything wrong with it. It’s just a matter of time. You’ve got to let that ligament heal and strengthen the muscles around it. It feels probably where it should be right now."

As for linebacker Manny Lawson, Whaley said he'd like to see him become a "hybrid" player, which ESPN believes is code for a diminishing role
