LeSean McCoy Upgraded To Game-Time Decision For Week 7

Oct 21, 2016 4:05 PM

LeSean McCoy has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Week 7 against the Dolphins.

"We'll see how it goes," Rex Ryan said. "We'll be smart with him, but he looked pretty good [Friday]."

"I just felt all right," McCoy said of his return to practice Friday. "I didn't do a lot of reps today. Just was real limited, just seeing how I feel. We'll see what happens [at Saturday's walk-through practice]."

ESPN previously reported that McCoy would not play in the game.

McCoy said Friday that his injury this week was "not nearly as bad as [last year]. So that's a good thing."

LeSean McCoy Out For Week 7 With Hamstring Injury

Oct 20, 2016 4:19 PM

LeSean McCoy will miss Week 7 after suffering an injured hamstring in Wednesday's practice.

Rex Ryan had said earlier Thursday that McCoy did not suffer a "full blown" hamstring injury and he was hopeful to have him back Sunday. 

Offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn wants to be cautious with McCoy's injury. When Lynn served as running backs coach last season, McCoy strained his hamstring in training camp and the injury lingered into the regular season.

Bills Have 'Major Concern' About Sammy Watkins' Foot

Sep 30, 2016 4:28 PM

The Buffalo Bills will be without Sammy Watkins this weekend and Rex Ryan says the team has "major concern" about the receiver's foot.

Watkins is dealing with soreness in his left foot following offseason surgery to repair a broken bone.

"I don't mind doing this every week," Ryan said Friday of keeping open the possibility for Watkins to play. "If Sammy can play, then obviously we want him out there. But if this is something that is hurting this young man in any way, shape or form, then absolutely I don't want him out there."

Watkins has not been available in the locker room or spoken to reporters since Sept. 19, when he said his foot injury was "kind of out of the window," adding, "I know what I'm dealing with; the team knows what I'm dealing with. It's up to me to go out there and play."

Sep 28, 2016 5:34 PM

Both the NFL and Tom Coughlin's agent have denied a report that he met with Buffalo Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula over the weekend.

"This meeting did not happen," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pro Football Talk.

Rex Ryan Joins Conference Call, Asks Julian Edelman If He'll Play QB

Sep 28, 2016 5:22 PM

Rex Ryan joined the end of Julian Edelman's conference call with reporters on Wednesday and asked the receiver if he'll play quarterback this weekend.

The Buffalo Bills are set to take on the New England Patriots, who will be without Tom Brady for one more week and could be without Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett due to injury.

"Julian, this is, uh, Walt Patulski from The Buffalo News," Ryan said. "Are you playing quarterback this week?"

"Huh?" Edelman responded.

"Are you playing quarterback this week?" Ryan repeated.

"I'm gonna do whatever the coaches ask me to do," Edelman said, "so if they ask me to go out and get a glass a water to someone on the sideline, I'm gonna do that with a smile on my face if it helps our team win. So you can ask Coach that one."

"All right, Julian, I will, buddy," Rex said.

The Patriots have not indicated who will start Sunday's game at quarterback.

Rex Ryan Doesn't Care Who Plays QB For Patriots In Week 4

Sep 26, 2016 8:21 AM

We don't yet know who will start at quarterback for the New England Patriots against the Buffalo Bills this weekend, but Rex Ryan doesn't sound concerned.

"I can sit back and say I don't care who plays quarterback, because [Tom] Brady ain't," Ryan said. "I don't care who plays quarterback. Steve Grogan can play quarterback. If [Bill] Belichick's playing quarterback, we're coming after him, I promise you that."

Ryan made the comments after Buffalo's 33-18 win over the Arizona Cardinals -- the team's first win of the season.

Tom Brady has one more game left on his four-game suspension. Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb), who combined to start the first three games, are uncertain for the Bills game.
