Position Listing
 
Lee Smith
News
Bills tight end Lee Smith is active for Week 3 against the Charges, despite being listed on the injury report with a toe injury. 
Da'Norris Searcy
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).

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 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).

Injury
Neck - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
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 backs Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon don't have a great matchup on the way in what will be their first games with an expanded role in Week 8, but both should still be on Fantasy radars.

Both Brown and Dixon will be among the most-added players on waivers this week, with C.J. Spiller already out for the season and Fred Jackson likely to miss some time. Brown is considered the more promising option of the two long-term, though there is a good chance both could struggle in Week 8 against the Jets.

The Jets have allowed just four touchdowns to opposing running backs this season, and three of them have been through the air. Opposing backs are averaging just 76.7 yards on 3.7 yards per carry on the ground, so the Bills' running game could be in for a rough outing.

The team hasn't given much of an indication as to how the playing time will be split up, but the beat writer for the team's official website thinks Dixon will at least get the edge in passing downs. Brown is the more talented runner, but the team may play it safe, at least at first, and split time between the two.

The Bills follow up Sunday's game with a bye in Week 9, so we might have to wait until Week 10 to really see how the running game shakes out. If you have the roster space, either player will be worth placing a waiver-wire bid on, but they may be tough to rely on at first. 

Brandon Spikes
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).

Injury
Ribs - Full practice. Probable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Ross Cockrell
News
Bills wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Aaron Williams, cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and wide receiver Marcus Easley were all ruled inactive Week 6 vs. New England.
Scott Chandler
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.

Phillip Tanner
News
Faced with limited depth in the backfield, the Bills are signing former Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner, reports the National Football Post.
Kraig Urbik
News
Bills coach Doug Marrone is exploring the option of making a change to the starting offensive line in an effort to improve the struggling unit, and inserting Kraig Urbik into the lineup ahead of rookie Cyril Richardson is the most likely move, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"He’s got to be ready to step up and go," Marrone said of Urbik. "If he gets the call on Sunday I’m sure he’ll be ready to go."

The Bills have surrendered 13 sacks in their last three games, and the line faces a tough test against the Jets in Week 8.

Marquise Goodwin
News
Bills wideout Marquise Goodwin left Thursday's practice after suffering a hamstring injury, according to ESPN.

Goodwin was listed as a limited participant. He did not return to practice after suffering the injury. Goodwin has battled a number of injuries in his young career. His status for Sunday's game will be revealed following Friday's practice. 

Injury
Hamstring - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Ron Brooks
News
Bills running back Fred Jackson (ankle) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee) are among the key players on both sides of the ball that have been ruled questionable for Week 6 against New England.

Jackson missed practice Friday because of an illness but is listed as questionable because of a nagging ankle injury. However, a source told ESPN he's expected to play on Sunday.

The following players have been deemed questionable by the Bills: DT Kyle Williams – knee
linebacker Nigel Bradham (knee), cornerback Ron Brooks (neck), safety Da'Norris Searcy (knee), linebacker Brandon Spikes (ribs) and safety Aaron Williams (wrist). Wide receiver Marcus Easley and guard Chris Williams were the only two players officially ruled out for the game,

Preston Brown
News
Bills linebacker Preston Brown put together a productive game Sunday, leading the team in tackles in a 29-10 win over the Dolphins in Week 2.

 Brown racked up 13 tackles -- seven solo -- in the win, while accumulating no stats. He has 20 through the first two games of his career. 

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 his only field goal attempt and added two extra points in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Carpenter knocked a 31-yard field goal through the uprights in the second half and later put his team ahead by nailing an extra point with one second left in the game. He's managed one field goal or less in four of the team's last five games but still has made 14 of his 16 attempts on the season. Carpenter is set for a trip to face the Jets in Week 8.

Randell Johnson
News
Bills wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Aaron Williams, cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and wide receiver Marcus Easley were all ruled inactive Week 6 vs. New England.
Mario Williams
News
The Bills defense didn't allow the Lions and Matthew Stafford to get into a rhythm Sunday, sacking the quarterback six times in the team's 17-14 comeback win in Week 5.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was responsible for three sacks while also forcing a fumble, and defensive end Jerry Hughes added two sacks and another forced fumble. Defensive end Mario Williams racked up the other sack. The defense also had one interception, courtesy of cornerback Stephon Gilmore, in the win. The 3-2 Bills host the Patriots in Week 6.

Injury
Thumb - Full practice. Probable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Marcus Easley
News
Bills wide receiver Marcus Easley returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday.

Easley has missed the last four weeks while recovering from a sprained MCL. If he's healthy enough to play Sunday, his presence on special teams could help counter the loss of Anthony Dixon on the unit, as he's expected to fill a much bigger offensive role in the wake of multiple injuries to the team's running backs.

Injury
Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Fred Jackson
News
Bills running back Fred Jackson said during an interview with WGR 550 Monday morning that the groin injury he suffered Sunday against the Vikings usually requires four weeks of recovery, but added, "I like to think of myself as someone who can come back faster than typical." Jackson said the injury doesn't require surgery.

CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora first reported Sunday night Jackson would miss at least two weeks due to the groin injury, but could miss up to four weeks.

Injury
Groin - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Cyril Richardson
News
Bills coach Doug Marrone is exploring the option of making a change to the starting offensive line in an effort to improve the struggling unit, and inserting Kraig Urbik into the lineup ahead of rookie Cyril Richardson is the most likely move, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"He’s got to be ready to step up and go," Marrone said of Urbik. "If he gets the call on Sunday I’m sure he’ll be ready to go."

The Bills have surrendered 13 sacks in their last three games, and the line faces a tough test against the Jets in Week 8.

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 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.
Ty Powell
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).

Injury
Ankle - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Stephon Gilmore
News
The Bills defense didn't allow the Lions and Matthew Stafford to get into a rhythm Sunday, sacking the quarterback six times in the team's 17-14 comeback win in Week 5.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was responsible for three sacks while also forcing a fumble, and defensive end Jerry Hughes added two sacks and another forced fumble. Defensive end Mario Williams racked up the other sack. The defense also had one interception, courtesy of cornerback Stephon Gilmore, in the win. The 3-2 Bills host the Patriots in Week 6.

Bryce Brown
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. 

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
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.

C.J. Spiller
News
The Bills placed running back C.J. Spiller on injured reserve/designated for return, meaning he's eligible to return Week 16 at Oakland. Spiller had surgery Monday to fix the broken collarbone he suffered Sunday against the Vikings.
Injury
Shoulder - IR. Designated for return
Kyle Williams
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).

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 could activate receiver Mike Williams for Week 7, according to ESPN.

Williams was a surprise scratch last weekend, and was expected to be a healthy scratch again. That could change after receiver Marquise Goodwin injured himself during Thursday's practice. The extent of Goodwin's injury is not known at this time. 

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.

Sammy Watkins
News
Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins failed to make much of an impact in Kyle Orton's first two games, but the pair showed a great rapport in Week 7 against the Vikings.

Watkins torched the Vikings for the best performance yet, as he set career-highs across the board. He was targeted by Orton 14 times in the passing game and hauled in nine of those passes for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns. And he did that against a Vikings defense that had allowed the 13th fewest Fantasy points to opposing receivers this season and was coming off a game in which the Lions had just 64 yards from their receivers.

Consistency will always remain an issue with Watkins, just like with any rookie wide receiver. However, he now has 85-plus yards in two of three games with Kyle Orton under center, and is clearly a more dangerous weapon now. Even with the natural ups-and-downs, Watkins should be a solid starting option this season. 

Injury
Groin - Full practice. Probable for Week 8 at N.Y. Jets
Kenny Ladler
News
The Bills have promoted safety Kenny Ladler to the active roster.

The club placed guard Chris Williams on IR, freeing up a spot on the roster for Ladler. Ladler was cut during camp, but joined the team's practice squad. 

Deon Broomfield
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.

Corbin Bryant
News
Among the players inactive for the Bills Week 1 vs. New England are kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin), cornerback Stephon Gilmore (wrist), center Doug Legursky (knee), defensive tackle Jay Ross, tight end Chris Gragg and defensive tackle Corbin Bryant.
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.

D.J. Morrell
News
The Rams waived cornerback Jarrid Bryant, punter Bobby Cowan, offensive tackles D.J. Morrell and R.J. Dill, receivers T.J. Moe and Jordan Harris, long snapper Jorgen Hus, fullback Kadeem Jones, and linebackers Johnny Millard and Pat Schiller.

Cyrus Kouandjio
News
Bills wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Aaron Williams, cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and wide receiver Marcus Easley were all ruled inactive Week 6 vs. New England.
Nickell Robey
News
The Bills used rookie defensive back Nickell Robey in pass-rushing situations again in Week 16, and he got to the quarterback for the second straight game. Robey racked up two sacks in a 19-0 win over the Dolphins, one week after picking up his first career sack. Robey added four tackles Sunday. 
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
Steve Caric, the agent for Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso, posted on Twitter that his client had successful surgery to repair his torn ACL. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews. 

Alonso is fully expected to miss the entire season.

Cordy Glenn
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.

Chris Hogan

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.

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.

Despite a successful first season in the middle of the Bills defense, Kiko Alonso won't play there in 2014. That's according to Bills GM Doug Whaley, who said on WGR 550 AM that Alonso will move to weak-side linebacker in 2014 with new linebacker Keith Rivers playing at the strong side. 

So who will man the middle? The Bills are hosting free-agent candidates but Whaley seems to think that "guys on campus" will get a crack at it first. Ty Powell was someone Whaley named specifically

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
