Bills Daily - Top News Friday August 26, 2016

Several Sit: The third preseason game is usually a dress rehearsal for the real thing but it Rex Ryan has had enough of all the injuries this summer and is giving several starters the night off. Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins, Richie Incognito, and Eric Wood are not among them as they will player. Sitting out are LeSean McCoy, Charles Clay, Stephon Gilmore, Kyle Williams, Ron Darby, Preston Brown, Jerry Hughes, and Manny Lawson are going to sit. Cardale Jones, Aaron Williams, Mike Gillislee, Nickell Robey-Coleman, and Marquise Goodwin are sitting with injuries.

Gameday! The third week of the preseason is here and this is the game that most resembles a regular season game. Traditionally the starters play into the third quarter but it is unknown how long the Bills are willing to risk Tyrod Taylor or LeSean McCoy. Sammy Watkins will make his preseason debut and likely his only appearance before the season starts. He is only suppose to play a series, maybe two at the most. This game is huge for bubble players as the cutdown to 75 is on Tuesday which means 14 players will be released.

Last Fisher Practice: The Bills held one final practice at St. Johns Fisher College this morning in front of no fans. Marquise Goodwin left practice early after hitting his head hard and is now in concussion protocol. Nickell Robey-Coleman left practice one day after returning to action. He got a thigh contusion. Jordan Mills suffered a knee injury no word on how severe it is but that would be a big blow if it's serious. Cardale Jones sat out a second day with a sore shoulder but did some work on the side. LeSean McCoy was on the field after leaving early last night with a hand injury. On other injured players, Rex Ryan said Cordy Glenn is getting close but won't play this week. Kolby Listenbee and Marcus Easley are not close to being ready for action. Injury Page.

Camp Ends: The Bills finished the official portion of their training camp with a night practice last night at St. Johns Fisher College. The team will have a closed practice this morning and then are expected to break camp and finish preparing for the season back at One Bills Drive. Several players returned to practice last night as Richie Incognito, Greg Salas, Alameda Ta’Amu, and Nickell Robey-Coleman joined Seantrel Henderson as players who returned to practice. LeSean McCoy left practice early after hurting hie hand. He got checked out by trainers and didn't return. Cardale Jones did not practice as he has a sore shoulder from Saturday's game.

Henderson Returns: It has been a long battle back from Chron's Disease but Seantrel Henderson has been activated off of the PUP list and will practice tonight for the first time in a very long time. He had two surgeries on his intestines and seems to past the worst of the disease but it has been a long road to get his weight back to a level where he could compete.


Saturday August 20, 2016

Ryan Presser: Rex Ryan said it was a really good performance especially the defense. Thought the effort was great and held them to one third down conversion. Offensively they kept slugging it out and popped some things. Very pleased with the majority of the game. They had seven penalties and that is something they need to keep hammering at. On Marcell Dareus he said they came together as a family and they support Mario 100 percent and their thoughts are with him. It is more important than the suspension and he's excited that he is trying to get his life right. On Karlos Williams he said every decision is make on three factors the team, the team, and the team. Ryan refused to get into why he was cut. He says it's the past and they are focused on what is ahead of them. This football team works really hard and it was nice to see the results. He feels the shoutout in the preseason means nothing. He was extremely happy with how his top two QBs played for the second week in a row and didn't think Cardale Jones played badly either. He loves the really good competition at the wide receiver spot. On Jordan Gay, he said he's very dissapointed with his kicking in the game. He feels he has done a really good job i]on the practice field. The coach said the only injury was to Mike Gillislee and said he's in concussion protocol.

Who Helped Themselves: While the third string QB hurt himself the top two QBs played very well. Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel both did well in the first half leading the Bills to three touchdown drives that should have been five scoring drives. Jerry Hughes was in midseason form and was a menace in the Giants backfield.

Who Hurt Themselves: This list is small as the Bills totally dominated the Giants but it starts with Jordan Gay. He got his first real chance as a place kicker and he failed miserably. He missed an extra point and a trip shot field goal. He better hopes they keep a kickoff specialist again or else he is gone. Blake Annen struggled as he was called for a holding penalty and dropped a pass. Cardale Jones cooled down going 6 of 12 for 83 yards and an interception in a scoreless second half.

Bills Shutout Giants 21-0: The Bills put all the off the field issues behind them and took care of business on the field. The defense dominated at all levels as the Bills shutout the Giants 21-0 at New Era Field. They had four takeaways and shutdown the run throughout sans a 67 yard run when the game was no longer in doubt. Tyrod Taylor played into the 2nd quarter and his last pass of the day was a 13 yard touchdown to LeSean McCoy. He went 7 of 10 for 132 yards and the score. He would have had more but Jerome Felton fumbled on the goal line. EJ Manuel looked very good finishing out the half including leading the team to two touchdown drives. He almost had a third touchdown drive but a controversial play was ruled incomplete as Greg Little battled for the ball in the end zone. Manuel went right back to him after a turnover and hit him for a 19 yard touchdown. Jonathan Williams also had a one yard plunge. On the injury front, Mike Gillislee took a big hit and went into concussion protocol.

Dareus To Rehab: Marcell Dareus left New Era Field in street clothes and shortly after he released a statement through the team that said, "After careful consideration of recent events within my life, I have made the decision to enter a rehabilitation facility. I feel this is the best decision for me, my family and my teammates as I move forward with my career. I appreciate the support of my teammates and the Bills organization through this process." The Bills added, "we are fully supportive of Marcell and this decision to take the time he needs to seek treatment." Doug Whaley said, "he’s family and we are being supportive of him of this step in his life," Whaley said. "I told you guys we wouldn’t give up on him and again we wholeheartedly support this effort." Whaley added he doesn't have a timetable for Dareus to return to the team but you would think it would be when the suspension ends.

Karlos Williams Released: The Bills announced a surprise move before today's game with the Giants. They have released Karlos Williams. It seems to be a shocking move considering first cuts are a week away. The team may feel he's not serious about his conditioning and he was going to be away from the team for the first four weeks which could get him more out of shape. It may make sense to part ways now. The team is loaded in the backfield and they love how good Reggie Bush looks. The timing of the move is very odd a couple of hours before a preseason game this far from cut day. There may be more to this story. Depth Chart.

Gameday: The Bills will play their last home preseason game and their first game ever under the name of New Era Stadium. Rex Ryan said that Tyrod Taylor may play into the second quarter and he's thinking of playing Sammy Watkins for one series. He expects most of the starters on both sides of the ball to play into the 2nd quarter. We will have our blurb on which players helped themselves and which hurt themselves in the game later tonight!
