Bills promote WR Hubbard; OL Howard to I-R -
"The Bills needed to add a fourth healthy receiver to their roster after David Nelson sustained a rib injury that is expected to keep him out of Sunday’s season finale against the Jets. On Tuesday they promoted WR Paul Hubbard to the 53-man roster from the team’s practice squad. With Hubbard moving up from the practice squad, the Bills filled his vacancy on the eight-man unit signing WR Rod Windsor."

Bills shut out in Pro Bowl voting - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"For the first time in 24 years, the Buffalo Bills did not have a player named to the Pro Bowl, which was announced by the NFL on Tuesday night."

Rookies show big promise -
"It has not been a season of success in terms of wins and losses, but as Buffalo’s personnel department and coaching staff work to build the Bills back into a consistent winner, it appears that step one of that process will provide a solid young core for the roster going into the 2011 season. Buffalo’s 2010 rookie class may not have contributed as much as anticipated in some areas, but there was unexpected production and noticeable progress on the whole."

Inside The Bills | Ryan changes mind on Sanchez
"After initially learning his team was in the playoffs after the Jets’ loss to Chicago last Sunday, Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he’d probably rest QB Mark Sanchez and his sore throwing shoulder in their season finale against the Bills. Now after further thought, he’s leaning toward playing him."

"Hubbard has spent two weeks on the Bills' 53-man roster and the rest of the season on the team's practice squad. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Wisconsin product entered the NFL as a sixth-round (191st overall) draft choice of Cleveland in 2008 and spent the season on the team's practice squad."

AFC East Pro Bowl analysis - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"While "robbed" might be too harsh of a word, the Buffalo Bills' defensive tackle Kyle Williams did have a campaign that was worthy of the Pro Bowl in a vacuum. But there was no way he was going to make the AFC roster ahead of Patriots star Vince Wilfork or Baltimore Ravens behemoth Haloti Ngata. Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour got the third spot."

Bills shut out of Pro Bowl - BillBoard - Blogs - The Buffalo News
"The Bills, who enter Sunday’s game against the New York Jets with a dismal 4-11 record, didn’t have players named to the Pro Bowl in 1985 and ’86, the last time no one was from the team was honored in pro football’s all-star game. The only other years Bills players were omitted were in 1960, the inaugural season of the team, and 1970."

"It means a lot," Eric Wood says. "He’s a heck of a back. He didn’t get as many carries as he would have liked in the beginning of the year. He’s our guy. He makes us look really good. He did last year, too, and we want to get him over 1,000-yards. We know it means a lot to him, so it means a lot to us."
