Doug Marrone likes the receivers that are on the roster, plus the three tight ends and two fullbacks. Could be some interesting packages this Sunday.

Glenn proving to be a reliable protector -

"Nobody is talking about him because he’s covered most of his assignments flawlessly. Pro Football Focus, ranked him as the fifth most efficient pass blocking tackle in the NFL, and the 14th best overall tackle in the league. According to their statistics, after allowing just one sack this year, he is tied with four other tackles for least amount of sacks allowed."

"Most definitely. You know, it's always good to see David," McKelvin said of Nelson, who spent his first three seasons with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Florida.

Will Bills turn to C.J. Spiller as receiver? - Buffalo Bills Blog - ESPN
"What stands out, however, is Spiller's production as a receiver. He's been targeted just 22 times and has gained just 86 yards on his 19 receptions. Of the 38 NFL running backs who have been targeted at least 20 times this season, Spiller's 4.53 yards per catch ranks 37th, better than only Houston's Ben Tate."

"My natural position is receiver and I’m just hoping that at some point I’ll be able to showcase my ability on offense," said Easley, who has been getting some time lately on offense due to injuries to Goodwin and Woods, and may see even more Sunday if Woods and now Stevie Johnson can’t play. "But if this is what it’s going to be, then this is what it’s going to be."
