Bills Daily - Top News Wednesday September 28, 2016

Three Don't Practice: Cordy Glenn returned to practice today on a limited basis which is a good sign for him according to Rex Ryan. Charles Clay, Cyrus Kouandjio, and Sammy Watkins did not practice. Glenn's possible return comes at a perfect time with Kouandjio's injury. Aaron Williams, Kyle Williams, Grag Salas and Marquise Goodwin are also limited today. Ryan pranked Julian Edelman jumping on his conference call with the Western New York media and asked him if he was playing quarterback this week. Edelman didn't recognize the voice. Injury Page.

Bills Sign OL: The Bills have filled the open roster spot vacated by the release of Jordan Gay. They have signed OT Michael Ola. They may need an extra tackle since Cyrus Kouandjio rolled his ankle late in the win over the Cardinals and Cordy Glenn has been sidelined since re-injuring his ankle in the opener. Seantrel Henderson is back from his suspension on Monday. Ola has 19 career starts in 23 games played. He played for Aaron Kromer in Chicago. Depth Chart.

Gay Released: The Bills have opened up a roster spot by once again releasing their kickoff specialist Jordan Gay. They also released LB Carlos Field and S Damian Parms from the practice squad while adding WR Ed Eagan and C Terran Vaughn to that unit. Eagan spent time with the Cowboys and the Browns. Vaughn spent time with the Raiders. Both players were undrafted free agents in this year's draft. Front Office Page.

Whaley On WGR: Doug Whaley joined Howard Simon and Jeremy White on WGR this morning. Among the highlights Whaley said getting the first win under their belt felt good since it's been a long time coming. He saw a good flow and rythym with Anthony Lynn running the offense and they took it to the defense which was encouraging. They need to exploit the running ability of Tyrod Taylor but they need to continue to pound into him that he has to run smart. His passing skills still need to improve his comfortablitiy in the pocket. He needs to learn to slide around it a bit more. He can throw over the middle even with his size he needs to just find the passing lanes but moving around. On Sammy Watkins, Whaley said they are leaning on the medical staff. They know Sammy wants to play and if there is no further damage to the foot that can come by playing they will let him play. The medical staff seems to feel that is the case. There have been no setbacks on the progression of the ankle injury to Cordy Glenn so they will see how it goes this week. They are cautiously optimistic he will get on the field in practice this week. Whaley praised the way Cyrus Kouandjio is playing even after getting his ankle rolled late in the win over Arizona. The GM says Shaq Lawson is on schedule to begin practicing when he's allowed to after week 6. He assumes Marcell Dareus will be rotated in the first game or two he is back to ease him into football shape. Injury Page.

Ryan Presser: Rex Ryan had his normal Monday press conference and was in a good mood as you can imagine. He started out mimicking Bill Belichik and said he has an idea who will play QB for the Patriots but he assumes they will keep them guessing right up until kickoff. The coach said defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman will call plays again this week after he was successful last week. He praised the play of Lezer Douzable and Kyle Williams. He said it hurt to only see Williams play six games last year.

Bills Blitz: LeSean McCoy ran for two touchdowns while Tyrod Taylor added a touchdown run as the Bills pulled off a 33-18 upset win over the Arizona Cardinals at New Era Field. Aaron Williams pretty much clinched the win when he picked up an errant snap on a field goal attempt and returned it for a touchdown in the second half. Bills Blitz.

Injury Update: The Bills seemed to get through the game without any new injuries which is nice to hear after the tough run they have had. Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas sat out along with Ronald Darby Injury Page.

No Watkins Or Darby: As if today's game wasn't an uphill battle already the Bills will have to do it without Sammy Watkins or Ronald Darby. Despite tweeting last night he was good to go several reports today say Watkins is out. Jason LaCanfora is also reporting that Darby won't play. He is battling a hamstring injury.

Beautiful Weather: It's a beautiful day for football at New Era Field. The gametime temperature will be in the low 60s topping out in the mid 60s under crisp clear skies with light winds out of the Northwest at 5mph. Bills Daily will be at the game today so there will be no grades this week but our Blitz article will be up sometime tonight.

Watkins Says He'll Play: Sammy Watkins tweeted that "he is ready to go out there and compete at the highest level". So it seems like he will play despite not practicing all week.

Bills Meet With Coughlin? There is a report out there that the Bills have met with Tom Coughlin. It is unknown if the meeting was part of Coughlin's job with the NFL's front office or if the Bills are looking for him to possibly join the organization in some capacity.

RV Lot Soldout: The Bills have announced that the RV lot has soldout not only for tomorrow's game but for the home games against San Francisco on October 16th and the New England game on October 30th as well. That means the whole first half of the home schedule has that lot soldout already.


Friday September 23, 2016

Watkins Questionable: The follies keep getting worse for the Bills Sammy Watkins remains sidelined this week because someone setpped on his ailing foot during a walk through earlier this week. He is officially listed as questionable but Rex Ryan admnitted it is unlikely he will play. They will wait until gametime to see how he feels calling him a special case that can play even though he hasn't practiced. Cordy Glenn did not practice again today and has been ruled out. Ronald Darby, Charles Clay, and Greg Salas all participating which means they have a decent chance at playing Sunday barring any flare up from their injuries. They are listed as questionable remember there are no probable designations anymore. Injury Page.


Thursday September 22, 2016

Concern Over Watkins Availability: Rex Ryan now has a heightened level of concern over the availability of Sammy Watkins for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He missed practice again today which is cause for concern but the coach is hopeful he'll be able to go. It may be better to shut him down for a while. Greg Salas was added to the injury report after hurting his groin in practice today. Ryan doesn't think it is too serious. Injury Page.

Clay Practices: Charles Clay returned to practice today after sitting yesterday to rest his chornic knee condition. Sammy Watkins was not on the field today which could mean they are just resting his ailing foot as much as possible or could spell trouble for his availability this weekend. Cordy Glenn sat once again so it's looking more likely he will sit for a second straight game.

Game Preview: The dysfunctional start to the season could continue to spiral out of control with one of the NFC's top Super Bowl contenders coming to town on Sunday. The Cardinals seem to have the edge everywhere on paper but it is never easy for a team to come east for a 1pm start so the Bills at least have that going for them. With a new offensive coordinator the Bills are hoping that can use the element of surprise to move the ball against a solid Arizona defense. This is an early season must win for the Bills and the opponent couldn't be any tougher. Complete Preview.
