  Bills | Sammy Watkins out    Thu Aug 28, 07:59 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) has now been ruled out for the remainder of tonight's game with a rib injury after originally being ruled as questionable.

Footballguys view: As expected. Now he just needs to get healthy. We're still drafting him as a WR4 and hoping he overcomes the quarterback.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins update    Thu Aug 28, 07:42 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is questionable to return with a rib injury.

Footballguys view: He's not coming back in a meaningless preseason game. Just hope he is healthy come Week 1. We see him as a WR4 but the whole "EJ Manuel quarterback" thing is a concern and holds his upside down.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins leaves early    Thu Aug 28, 07:25 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) left the team's final preseason game with an apparent injury. There was no indication if Watkins aggravated his ribs.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see how reports shape up but we can only hope he is healthy for Week 1. His QB makes him a WR4 at best though he could be much better if he had a better guy throwing the ball.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to play?    Thu Aug 28, 05:59 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) could play in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, though it likely wouldn't be for long.

Footballguys view: And it wasn't as he was forced out again due to the ribs. They need to get him healthy by next week where he starts a season where we believe he will be a decent WR4 held back in part by his quarterback.

  Bills | Jordan Palmer signs    Tue Aug 26, 10:00 AM

The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent QB Jordan Palmer (Bears) to an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: There's a real shot Palmer will see playing time this year with EJ Manuel's injury history and struggles in the NFL. The Browns holding the Bills first-round pick next year looks ideal.

  Bills | Thaddeus Lewis cut    Tue Aug 26, 09:08 AM

The Buffalo Bills released QB Thaddeus Lewis.

Footballguys view: Lewis was a game competitor for the Bills when pressed into duty last year, but his early knowledge of the offense and solid games have faded into a lack of confidence in him by the Buffalo staff. He could catch on elsewhere when injuries start to strike during the season.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins practices    Mon Aug 25, 06:26 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 25. Watkins said he will be able to play in the final preseason game if needed.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Watkins plays in the fourth preseason game. He might get a few reps, just to get him warmed up for the regular season. However, there's no need to risk aggravating his ribs injury in a meaningless preseason game. Week 4 of the preseason is reserved strictly for young players and guys fighting to hang onto the final roster.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins inactive    Sat Aug 23, 03:29 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) is inactive for the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries come down to pain tolerance. They can linger if not given proper time to heal. The Bills want the talented rookie to be near 100 percent by the start of the regular season.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins suits up    Thu Aug 21, 10:33 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) is in full pads for practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: We expect Watkins to lead the Bills at receiver, though with EJ Manuel throwing the ball that may be unimpressive compared to other leading receivers. His ADP reflects that as he has been tracking as a WR3 or WR4 and going upwards of the ninth round, if he goes at all. He gets a little bump in PPR leagues as he should get targeted a ton, but don't go nuts as the rest of the offense isn't going to help him break the bank from a production standpoint.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins sits    Wed Aug 20, 08:58 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) did not take part in practice in routes against defenders Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Watkins injury is not serious, but it might not be a minor nick either. If he doesn't play in the "dress rehearsal" third preseason game, it will be an indicator that there is more than a mere bruise. Watkins stock has fallen after a blistering first week of camp.

Buffalo Bills OT Seantrel Henderson started at right tackle and OT Erik Pears started at right guard during practice Monday, Aug. 18, with OT Cordy Glenn (illness) returning from an illness and starting at left tackle.

Footballguys view: Henderson has tons of ability but was considered a big character risk. He could end up being a steal for the team that discovered Jason Peters.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) is day-to-day after tests confirmed that he suffered bruised ribs in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16, according to a person close to the situation.

Footballguys view: Watkins is set to be the team's leading receiver in 2014. They should make a point of targeting him early and often. He's been fantastic in practice, but has yet to really shine in the preseason.

  Bills | Two in roster danger    Mon Aug 18, 02:12 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis and DL Alan Branch may be in danger of losing their spots on the roster. Coach Doug Marrone has been critical of Lewis' play, which has been way down from last season, and Branch failed a conditioning test before reporting to camp.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Lewis can turn things around the rest of the preseason. The Bills lack quality depth behind starter E.J. Manuel. Jeff Tuel and Dennis Dixon are the only other players at quarterback in Bills camp.

  Bills | Coach not happy with backup QB play    Sun Aug 17, 08:27 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said he was not happy with the play of QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Jeff Tuel during the second preseason game. Lewis went 1-for-6 for 18 yards and an interception, while Tuel went 5-for-9 for 48 yards and a fumble. The competition for the No. 2 quarterback job is still considered open.

Footballguys view: EJ Manuel has been a middling to poor option for the Bills, but neither of the backups are inspiring confidence after Lewis was actually quite functional in the Marrone/Hackett offense last year. Manuel also missed multiple games with injuries last year, so this is shaping up for a potentially disastrous season at QB for Buffalo with Cleveland holding their first-round pick next year.

  Bills | Offensive line struggles in practice    Wed Aug 13, 09:18 PM

The Buffalo Bills offensive line was dominated in a joint practice with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, Aug. 13. At one point offensive line coach Pat Morris told rookie OT Cyrus Kouandjio: 'You might as well be Venus de Milo.'

Footballguys view: Morris has a way with words, invoking the armless statue as a comparison for the rookie. Kouandjio could be a shot in the arm for a Bills offensive line that still needs upgrades at more than one spot, but it sounds like he is not close to being a strong contributor yet.
