Free agent quarterbacks worth considering for the Buffalo Bills

Free agent quarterbacks worth considering for the Buffalo Bills

With AJ McCarron’s injury, the Bills may be in the market for another quarterback With multiple reports stating that AJ McCarron broke his collarbone against the Cleveland Browns on Friday night, the Buffalo Bills may be in the market for a free agent quarterback. Chances are that McCarron could return this season, but the Bills will likely want a third quarterback for the remainder of the preseason. If the Bills choose to start the regular season with two healthy quarterbacks, it would make sense to add another arm to help them navigate the remainder of the preseason. While there are...

Marcus Murphy continues to shine in preseason

Marcus Murphy continues to shine in preseason

Murphy has excelled as a runner and in special teams, which should cement his spot on the 53-man roster. Veteran Chris Ivory was brought in on a free-agent contract to serve as the primary backup to Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy, but through the first two preseason games, Marcus Murphy has staked his claim not only to a spot on the 53-man roster, but as the primary backup to Shady. Especially following Friday night’s 19-17 win over the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium, when Murphy not only led the Bills in rushing (39 yards on four carries for a robust 9.8 yards per rush average), but...

Kyle Williams didn’t tear ACL, per report

Kyle Williams didn’t tear ACL, per report

Good news, at least initially. Most Buffalo Bills fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Kyle Williams didn’t tear his ACL on Friday night, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, when he was rolled up on from behind in the middle of a scrum stopping a running back. He was walking around in a brace following the game. Whatever injury Williams did sustain, it likely won’t keep him out for the entire season. “Pro Football Doc”, Dr. David Chao, has said on multiple occasions that on-field procedures to test for an ACL tear are highly effective, so we expect the MRI to confirm this in...

Bills vs. Browns: Game ball recipients include Josh Allen

Bills vs. Browns: Game ball recipients include Josh Allen

Josh Allen makes a case for the starting job The Buffalo Bills traveled to Cleveland and gave the Browns their first preseason loss since 2016.

Bills starting quarterback became very interesting Friday night

Bills starting quarterback became very interesting Friday night

Nathan Peterman has been stellar. Josh Allen has been a breath of fresh air. AJ McCarron is hurt. The Buffalo Bills have completed two of their four preseason games in 2018, and while their starting quarterback competition appears far from settled, events from Friday night’s 19-17 win over the Cleveland Browns have provided some clarity on where things are headed there. With next Sunday’s trip to Cincinnati serving as the de facto regular season dress rehearsal for the club, here is where things (seem to) stand for the Bills at quarterback heading into that game. AJ McCarron McCarron...

Bills Links, 8/18: Josh Allen steps up in Buffalo quarterback competition

Allen continued to impress on Friday night in Cleveland The quarterback competition may have become a bit clearer for the Buffalo Bills on Friday night for a couple of reasons. The positive is that Josh Allen continued to perform well, leading the Bills to three scoring drives while working in the second and third quarters. Unfortunately, AJ McCarron may be on the outside looking in at the competition, after reports of an injured collarbone during the game. More details are expected this weekend on the severity of the injuries to McCarron and defensive tackle Kyle Williams. There is plenty...

Five takeaways from the Bills’ win over the Browns

Lots of intrigue before, and lots of intrigue after. The Buffalo Bills beat the Cleveland Browns on Friday night, and for as much intrigue as there was heading into the game, there might be more heading out of it. The quarterback competition was thrown for a loop, the Bills suffered some legitimate injuries that should worry fans, and the offensive line might be to blame. Here are my five takeaways: How are you going to keep Josh Allen from starting? The Bills rookie seems destined to start the third preseason game next weekend. On Friday night against Cleveland, Allen demonstrated poise...

Bills vs. Browns: Third string live blog & open thread

The Bills lead by three as the third string, including quarterback Nathan Peterman, take to the field After an up-and-down first half of preseason action, the Buffalo Bills find themselves leading 13-7 as the third-string players take to the field against the Cleveland Browns. In the first quarter, AJ McCarron couldn't move the first team offense, and despite only surrendering a single touchdown, the starting Bills defense was gashed on the ground. Offensively, the Bills did not earn a first down until 10:59 in the second quarter. After coming in early in that same quarter, Josh Allen...

Bills vs. Browns: Josh Allen & second string open thread

It’s time for Buffalo’s rookie quarterback to roll out. Josh Allen may not have started in this rookie showcase against Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns. That’s fine. But as the Buffalo Bills rotate their personnel, he’s up to bat. How will Buffalo’s rookie fare in direct comparison with the league’s number one overall pick tonight? Allen spent the past week of practice lining up with Corey Coleman, Wyatt Teller, and Buffalo’s other second stringers. If he plays well with them tonight, he will make for a very difficult decision as Sean McDermott’s staff prepares for...

Bills captain Kyle Williams injured in second quarter

The veteran limped off after a Cleveland Browns player rolled on his leg Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams was injured in the second quarter of the team’s second preseason game. A Cleveland Browns player fell into Williams, who was engaged with an offensive lineman. The player rolled on Williams’s right leg. Williams remained on the ground for several minutes with trainers working on the leg before he limped off the field. The Bills run defense has looked porous so far in tonight’s game, with Cleveland continuously gashing the Bills both inside the tackles and outside....

Approval Poll: How is Brandon Beane doing as general manager?

Beane has been very active since joining the Bills in 2017 As the Buffalo Bills have worked through the final days of training camp at St. John Fisher, I figured it was time for our readers to weigh in on Brandon Beane and the job he has done as general manager of the team. There is no denying that Beane has been active on the trade market since taking over, including a number of moves since the end of last season. Here are some of the highlights from Beane, and his staff, during the 2018 offseason: Signed Vontae Davis and Chris Ivory prior to the start of free agency Signed free agents...
