Dixon could be sidelined for a month with a calf injury suffered in practice on Monday, August 3.

Summary

Scuttlebutt has Anthony Dixon potentially left out of the backfield roster by the end of the summer. Recently, WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia says both rookie Karlos Williams and Bryce Brown are better bets to make the roster. It's hard to know for sure though as Brown is inconsistent and Williams is terribly raw. On the flip side, Williams is a special teamer like Dixon and Bryce has more overall talent as a runner. Dixon is just a short yardage back, and a slow one at that. He can move the pile - and the chains - but won't give you much more. And there isn't much upside to him, especially behind LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson as well. Dixon will have to fight to make the roster. (May 26)

Bills | Two Bills RBs return (Thu Aug 27, 12:16 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB Bryce Brown (hamstring) and RB Anthony Dixon (calf) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 27.

Our View: Mostly depth backs, the Bills could find themselves in need of one or both, considering both Fred Jackson and LeSean McCoy's propensity to get banged up. Neither one is anything but a deep, deep bench warmer though and unless there is an injury, they aren't worth having on the roster.
