Levitre the likely left tackle - BuffaloBills.com
"Bills head coach Chan Gailey knew it was a possibility heading into the bye weekend. On Monday it became a likelihood. Starting left guard Andy Levitre was lined up at left tackle in practice Monday, and with Demetrius Bell still on the mend from a shoulder injury, Levitre is expected to start there Sunday against Washington."

Troup says back is not a chronic issue - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"Torell Troup has heard the whispers and is determined to set the record straight. The back injury that has kept the Buffalo Bills' second-year nose tackle out of four of six games this season -- and severely limited him when he could play -- is not something he expects to trouble him the rest of the year. Or even worse, for his entire career."

Foot injury leaves DT Williams in limbo - BuffaloBills.com
"In typical Kyle Williams fashion he tried to play through it. Buffalo’s Pro Bowl defensive tackle just hoped his nagging foot injury that first cropped up in training camp would eventually subside and allow him to be the penetrating nose tackle that he’s always been. After five games his left foot has refused to cooperate forcing team doctors to put it in an immobilizer boot until further notice."

Bills add practice squad DT - BuffaloBills.com
"Ross (6’2" 302) was released by Green Bay prior to the regular season after joining the Packers’ practice squad on Oct. 20, 2010. The East Carolina product entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with New Orleans in 2010. Ross totaled 140 tackles with 18.5 stops for a loss and 8.5 sacks in 52 games with 42 starts for the Pirates."

Inside The Bills | Spiller’s WR role evolving "
"Because we had a bye we’ll have a little more time and he’ll have more time to think about things and how to get him involved," said Ryan Fitzpatrick of Spiller. "I think just in general with the injuries and still not having guys back, his role is going to increase. I think that was inevitable with him being out there and having a little bit to build on with the catches and the routes that he ran. I think that was going to happen anyway."

Inside The Bills | LaCanfora says Stevie, Fred after Fitz "
"It’s pretty close," said LaCanfora on an extension deal for Fitzpatrick. "It could well be before he plays his next game. He’s going to make around $10 million a year. They’ve made a lot of progress on this the last two weeks and no surprise here, things really kicked into overdrive when he beat the Patriots. That kind of got negotiations going again and they’ve been on a steady upward slant since then."

"The Bills needed a bye week to heal up and even with it won’t be completely healthy heading into Sunday’s game with Washington in Toronto. Neither will the Redskins after their loss Sunday to Carolina."

"He’s not making the progress we had hoped right now," said Gailey. "We’re going to try to work with him and see where it goes."

Fitz not available Monday - BillBoard - The Buffalo News
"Read into it what you will, but from here it seems an extension is imminent. The alternative, of course, would be that talks broke down over the weekend, but the former is much more likely."

Injuries piling up for Redskins - BillBoard - The Buffalo News
"Injuries are not exclusive to the Bills. Buffalo's next opponent, the Washington Redskins, have been hit hard in the last two weeks."

"It's frustrating. Nobody's more upset or disappointed than I am," he said. "You guys have been around me long enough to know this isn't where I want to be. It's a bad thing because it's not anything I'm good at -- is being patient."

Bills catching Redskins at the right time - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"Buffalo, coming off its bye, had two weeks to get healthy and is trying to rebound from a tough loss to the New York Giants. The Bills have a tough stretch of games upcoming. They could do themselves a big favor if they take advantage of a depleted Washington team and improve to 5-2."

"Buffalo also was inactive but may have a chance to move up. Top-10 teams like the Detroit Lions and Chargers suffered losses in Week 7."

New kickoff rule provides limited returns - buffalobills.com
"Of the 30 kickoffs the Bills have fielded this season 24 have gone for touchbacks, good for fourth most in the league. Buffalo’s 80 percent touchback percentage is the highest in football. More than even Denver’s 77 percent with the Broncos playing three of their first six games in the thin mile high air of their own stadium where the ball carries further."

Bills must reach deals with stars - Bucky Gleason - The Buffalo News
"I'm not suggesting Fitzpatrick is an elite quarterback by any means, but he's a very good one. He's certainly the best the Bills have had since Drew Bledsoe's first season in Buffalo. Add up everything Fitz has done for the Bills, compare him to other QBs, and $10 million-plus is well within reason."

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Albert Pujols too important to their teams | Democrat and Chronicle
"I believe the generally frugal Bills would be wise to sign Fitzpatrick to a deal worth $10 million per year, with potential bonuses for individual and team performances worth another $2 million per season. A four- or five-year deal would be good for the 28-year-old Fitzpatrick but may be too long for the Bills."

CONFER: Occupy Ralph Wilson Stadium " Opinion " Tonawanda News
" Someone please tell that to Ralph Wilson and his compatriots at One Bills Drive. And while you’re at it, share that with ardent Buffalo Bills backers, our elected officials and the other newspaper. Each one of those groups is guilty of abandoning common sense and common sentiment, thinking it’s prudent for state and local taxpayers to invest a staggering $100 million to $175 million in improvements for Ralph Wilson Stadium."
