Bills signed RG Kraig Urbik to a four-year, $15 million contract extension.
Urbik was set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, but Buffalo locked up their versatile 27-year-old right guard after he posted back-to-back solid seasons. Urbik has started 24 games over the last two years and grades out as one of Pro Football Focus' top-25 guards for 2012 heading into Week 16. Andy Levitre, Buffalo's left guard, is also eligible for unrestricted free agency after the season. Levitre is going to be a bit more pricey. Tue, Dec 18, 2012 01:12:00 AM

Bills RG Kraig Urbik (foot) is listed as questionable on the Week 10 injury report.

Urbik practiced on a limited basis this week and is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He missed three games earlier this season due to injury. With Erik Pears (hip, injured reserve) out for the year, Chris Hairston will make his second straight start at right tackle.

Bills RG Kraig Urbik is expected to return from his ankle injury in Week 9.

Shelved since Week 4, Urbik used the Week 8 bye to nurse himself back to full health. His return should provide a boost for the Bills' running game.

Bills RG Kraig Urbik, LT Cordy Glenn, and RG Chad Rinehart did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

The Bills offensive line has been just ravaged with injuries this season. They're now extremely thin at right guard with Urbik's replacement Colin Brown on I.R., and Rinehart also dealing with a calf injury. The Bills did sign veteran G/T Reggie Wells, who has not played an offensive snap since Week 17 of 2010. The situation is a concern for Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller owners.

Bills RG Kraig Urbik has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

Coach Chan Gailey expects both Urbik and LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) to miss this week's game against the 49ers' crushing front seven. Urbik is wearing a protective boot and will likely sit out Week 6 at Arizona as well.

Bills coach Chan Gailey expects RG Kraig Urbik and LT Cordy Glenn to both be out "awhile" after suffering ankle injuries in Week 4.

Buffalo has experienced and largely capable replacements in Chad Rinehart and Chris Hairston, although they now are starved for depth and might not be able to withstand another O-Line injury. Glenn, in particular, had been playing extremely well as a rookie on Ryan Fitzpatrick's blind side. The losses won't make life easy in the Bills' defense in Week 5 against the 49ers.

Bills re-signed restricted free agent G/C Kraig Urbik to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.

Urbik, 26, made 13 starts last season, opening the year at right guard before kicking inside to replace injured C Eric Wood. Pro Football Focus graded Urbik as a terrific interior pass blocker, but he'll have to improve immensely as a run blocker in order to keep his job. Urbik is more of a swingman type.
Mon, Apr 23, 2012 03:41:00 PM's Chris Brown expects the Bills to tender qualifying offers to restricted free agents Kraig Urbik and Chad Rinehart.

Urbik earned the starting job at right guard this year after initially being picked up off waivers from the Steelers last season. Rinehart made 12 starts filling in as a ''swingman'' and is capable of starting on the interior line.
Sun, Jan 29, 2012 09:30:00 AM

Bills RG Kraig Urbik has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Patriots with a torn meniscus that will require surgery.

The plan is to move forward with Colin Brown to finish the season. Demetrius Bell and TE Mike Caussin also suffered knee injuries and are not expected to play in next week's game. Rookie Chris Hairston is in line for his seventh start at left tackle in place of Bell.

Bills coach Chan Gailey expects RG Kraig Urbik to miss 2-4 weeks after injuring his knee in Week 2.

It sounds like a sprained MCL. Chad Rinehart stepped in for Urbik against the Raiders, and presented no obvious drop-off. The Bills have done an impressive job of keeping Ryan Fitzpatrick upright so far despite their weak O-Line talent.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 10:49:00 PM

According to WGR 550 Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia, Bills RG Kraig Urbik is "auditioning for the new show 'Worst Starting Offensive Lineman in the NFL.'"

The Bills' offensive line got thoroughly dismantled by the Broncos on Saturday evening, with LT Demetrius Bell and LG Andy Levitre joining Urbik in getting abused. Levitre appears to have lost his job to Chad Rinehart, but Bell and Urbik are both still starters for the time being.
Sun, Aug 21, 2011 12:11:00 PM

Kraig Urbik is battling Mansfield Wrotto and Chad Rinehart for the Bills' starting right guard gig.

Urbik was able to gain starting experience last year when Eric Wood struggled with injuries. He can play center also, but his best chance for playing time now comes at guard. Urbik is considered the favorite right now.
Thu, Aug 4, 2011 08:28:00 AM

Bills placed RG Kraig Urbik (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

A third-round disappointment in Pittsburgh, Urbik had been forced into the lineup as a fill-in for Eric Wood. With C Geoff Hangartner out, the Bills hope Wood can man center in Week 14 with Andy Levitre kicking back to guard along with rookie Ed Wang. The injuries up front brought the offense to a halt last week.
Tue, Dec 7, 2010 04:35:00 PM

Bills backup C Kraig Urbik is likely done for the season after suffering ligament damage in his right knee.

With starter Geoff Hangartner (knee) also likely done for the year, the Bills' offensive line is in shambles. It's going to be an uphill climb down the stretch for Fred Jackson and the entire offense.
Mon, Dec 6, 2010 10:48:00 AM

Bills RG Kraig Urbik left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with a right leg or knee injury.

It could be anything from a torn knee ligament to a broken leg. Either way, we're almost certain that Urbik's season is over. He could put no weight on the leg, and was carted off the field. The Bills have lost two offensive linemen in the game, forcing LG Andy Levitre to center. It's no surprise, then, that they lost the center-snap exchange at the Vikings' goal-line on the same drive Urbik went down. The Vikings are dominating.
