It's that time of the week when we update our Buffalo Bills 53-man roster projections, and yesterday's surprising release of Shawne Merriman necessitates some change, to be certain - though there still aren't as many this week as there were the week prior.

Since the last update, not only have the Bills cut Merriman and Michael Jasper, but they've also wrapped up training camp and played a second pre-season game. Plenty has changed. You can find the latest projection after the jump.
