Fitzpatrick On Promotion: Ryan Fitzpatrick addressed the media after hearing of his promotion to the top of the depth chart at quarterback. He said he's excited for the opportunity but they obviously have a lot of work to do to correct the issues from the last two weeks with a tough opponent ahead. He feels he has chemsitry with the receivers since he's thrown to them before and he's used to being the guy that comes off the bench and starts games.
Levitre May Play: Andy Levitre said he thinks his shoulder will be ok in the next few days and he thinks he will be able to play Sunday against New England. Chan Gailey said it wasn't as bad as originally feared. He is day to day at this point and they will see how he is on Wednesday. No other injuries from Sunday's loss has been reported. Injury Page.
RB Situation Depends On Packages: Chan Gailey did not commit to Marshawn Lynch as his starting running back saying they have packages involving each running back and they feel they have three starters at the position. It will depend on the package which running back will be in the game. He did say they would like to get the ball in C.J. Spiller's hands more often.
Edwards Stays Number Two: Chan Gailey said that Trent Edwards handled the demotion professionally and he will suit up as the number two QB on Sunday. Gailey said that it is not all Edwards fault but they are looking for the right combination to have some success on the field offensively. He said there are no other lineup changes at this time but they will stay this course for the time being.
Fitzpatrick Starting: Ryan Fitzpatrick is the new starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. Chan Gailey announced today they are looking for a spark and they turning to Fitzpatrick. He said this isn't a one week thing and he is the quarterback going forward. The Bills are dead last in offense and Trent Edwards only ran for 102 yards against Green Bay and the team was still running despite getting blown out in the second half. Depth Chart.
Bell Headed To Philly: The Bills have let Joique Bell go. He was on the practice squad but has signed with Philadelphia for their active roster. The Bills could have kept him by putting him on their active roster but they would have had four halfbacks then. Letting him go probably means they will not trade Marshawn Lynch. Front Office Page.
No Practice Today: The Bills have no practice scheduled for today but the players will be at One Bills Drive going over film of yesterday's debacle in Green Bay. Chan Gailey is expected to address the media late this afternoon and hopefully will have an update on Andy Levitre who was the lone player to leave the game yesterday with an injury.
