Injuries leave pass game shorthanded -
"The Bills entered last weekend’s preseason game minus Roscoe Parrish and Craig Davis. The contingent of wide receivers got noticeably shorter coming out of their preseason game at Denver last Saturday. Donald Jones, Felton Huggins and Naaman Roosevelt were all added to the list of nicked up receivers for the Bills coming out of that game."

Bills see some reason for hope - The Buffalo News
"We gave up too many yards in the air," Gailey acknowledged. "We all saw that. I know that. We've got to keep working on that aspect. But I know one thing: If we can stop the run, we've got a better chance than we had last year."

Inside The Bills | Batten hoping for no fine
"Batten hit the Broncos QB before he delivered the ball, but finished his hit by taking him to the ground. The officials apparently had an issue with him following through on his hit feeling he drove the QB into the ground."

Bills notebook: Receivers suddenly in short supply - The Buffalo News
"By the end we kind of ran out of receivers those last few minutes," quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "That's just part of it. You hope that none of those guys are going to be hurt more than a few days. ... The biggest thing for me is we've got to go practice with a greater focus knowing that we have a lot of work in front of us."

Rapid Reaction: Jets 27, Bengals 7 - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"Bills castoff Aaron Maybin, the 11th overall pick in the 2009 draft, made his presence felt in his Jets debut. After only three days of practice with the team, Maybin recorded a strip sack on Bengals third-string QB Jordan Palmer. Hey, that might have been enough to grab a spot on the 53-man roster."

Preseason is no excuse for Bills' struggles - The Buffalo News
"Memo to the Bills: No one else had minicamp or OTAs either. It would be nice if you could show some semblance of signs that you accomplished anything at St. John Fisher this month."

Rahim Moore insists hit on Donald Jones was clean - Yahoo! Sports
"At the end of the day, I mean no harm to nobody. I don’t want to hurt anybody," Moore said. "I prayed for the dude afterward. Because I really didn’t know what was going on. People were tapping my head. People were hitting me. I wasn’t sure what was going on."

What we learned on Saturday night | ProFootballTalk
"3. Buffalo’s offensive line was overmatched, especially left tackle Demetrius Bell. 4. Really, there wasn’t a lot of positives for the Bills. C.J. Spiller didn’t show he was worthy of starting. Running back Johnny White and wide receiver Donald Jones both left after taking nasty hits."

Spiller struggling to show he’s ready to start | ProFootballTalk
"It’s clear the Bills have high hopes for Spiller, but he hasn’t shown the consistency in games yet. Spiller ran six times for 10 yards on Saturday night against Denver. He caught two passes for 11 yards."

Bills injuries not serious |
"Donald Jones injury was vicious. Johnny White's was scary. But neither appear to be serious, according to Bills head coach Chan Gailey. While the team issued no updates on Sunday, Gailey's postgame comments Saturday night indicated that neither would keep the player out for an extended time."

Bob Matthews | Democrat and Chronicle |
"Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey is an offensive genius. I'm buying that. But I scratch my head every time C.J. Spiller runs up the middle behind a below-average NFL line."
