  Bills | Chris Ivory officially cut    Wed Mar 27, 04:17 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory's release was made official Wednesday, March 27.

Footballguys view: This move was expected when the Bills added Frank Gore in free agency earlier this offseason. Ivory has a dwindling skill set and may find work difficult to come by. Perhaps something opens up around training camp.

  Bills | Chris Ivory shown the door    Tue Mar 26, 02:28 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory is being released Tuesday, March 26, according to a source.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Bills added Frank Gore in free agency, and the seasoned veteran will work in some form of RBBC with LeSean McCoy in 2019. Ivory might struggle to find work now that he's on the open market.

  Bills | Buffalo has ancient stable of RBs    Mon Mar 11, 06:15 PM

The Buffalo Bills have the three oldest running backs currently under contract in the NFL after the agreement to sign Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Frank Gore. RBs LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory are both turn 31 before the 2019 season begins, while Gore turns 36 years old May 14.

Footballguys view: Some say 'ancient' while we say 'experienced' when it comes to the Bills RB corps. Gore still has something left in the tank and can be a grinder for Buffalo. McCoy should be the lead back and has the most big-play ability of the bunch.

  Bills | Chris Ivory fully practices    Wed Dec 12, 03:16 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bills here as they may be without LeSean McCoy this week. That would make Ivory the lead back in Week 15. If that's his role, Ivory has flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in the second round of the fantasy playoffs.

  Bills | Chris Ivory day-to-day    Mon Dec 10, 05:06 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) is considered day-to-day because of a shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: Ivory would be the team's lead back if LeSean McCoy can't go this week due to a hamstring injury. With Ivory also banged up, the Bills are incredibly thin at the running back position. Marcus Murphy could get more work this week and gadget player/WR/RB Isaiah McKenzie could get some carries too. They do have Keith Ford on their practice squad if they need more bodies at the position.

  Bills | Chris Ivory expected to play    Sat Oct 27, 12:55 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 8 game even though he is dealing with hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bills here. LeSean McCoy remains in the concussion protocol but is expected to be cleared in time to play on Monday night against the Patriots. If McCoy doesn't play (or is limited) then the Bills would turn to Ivory more.

LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest) and DT Kyle Williams (rest) were not given an official practice designation Friday after not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 25.

Footballguys view: McCoy isn't clear yet for Monday night, but he has an extra day to get out of concussion protocol. He's still a very limited upside flex against the Patriots even if he is active.

  Bills | Chris Ivory runs for 81 yards    Sun Oct 21, 04:23 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory rushed for 81 yards on 16 carries against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. He also caught three passes for 25 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Ivory ran hard and had no give up in his game. He could start if LeSean McCoy is out against the Patriots next week, but Ivory is only a desperation/bye/injury option despite decent volume.

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory rushed 20 times for 56 yards while adding a team-high 70 receiving yards on three receptions in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: This will likely be Ivory's high water mark this year. LeSean McCoy was healthy enough to make the trip, so he should be able to play against Green Bay next week.

  Bills | Marcus Murphy ahead of Chris Ivory?    Mon Sep 3, 12:35 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Marcus Murphy took the second snap behind LeSean McCoy and ahead of Chris Ivory during individual drills in practice Monday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation. McCoy is not going to land on the Commissioner's Exempt List at this time, but the league could revisit the situation later as McCoy is involved in an ongoing investigation. If anything happens to McCoy later in the year, Fantasy GMs are going to want his primary backup...although in that event we could see the Bills rolling with a RBBC featuring both Murphy and Ivory.

  Bills | Chris Ivory could see enhanced role    Thu Jul 12, 11:46 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory would be the first option at the position if RB LeSean McCoy is not available.

Footballguys view: It's all going to depend on the case that does or doesn't exist against LeSean McCoy. We've a long way to go before we know what really happened, so while this is worth watching, abandoning McCoy for Ivory is premature, though having Ivory as a handcuff isn't. Neither player's ADP has moved, though their rankings by the Footballguys staff has adjusted in some cases. In the end, it's too early to make a definitive move aside from shoring up your roster just in case.

  Bills | Chris Ivory agrees with Bills    Tue Mar 6, 11:04 AM

Updating an earlier report, free-agent RB Chris Ivory (Jaguars) agreed to a two-year, $5.5 million deal with the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, March 6. He'll receive $3.25 million guaranteed in the first year and can earn a maximum of $6 million.

Footballguys view: Ivory has little upside in Buffalo, as LeSean McCoy is still the man there. That said, if McCoy gets hurt, he has a chance to see some carries, even if he seems to have lost a step.

Free-agent RB Chris Ivory (Jaguars) is meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, Feb. 27, after visiting the Buffalo Bills on Monday, Feb. 26. Ivory is also scheduled to meet with an unidentified team Wednesday, Feb. 28.

Footballguys view: The Browns are kicking the tires on a potential replacement for Isaiah Crowell, but Ivory could also be a #3 if the team takes Saquon Barkley with one of their first-round picks, or takes another talented back from this class on the second or third day.
