Bills ST/WR Marcus Easley dislocated his kneecap and broke his knee in three places during Sunday's Week 16 win over Dallas.

The severe injury brings into doubt Easley's status for 2016; he seems very likely to open next season on Buffalo's reserve/PUP list. Easley is one of the best gunners in football. He has nine special teams tackles this year.

Bills WR Marcus Easley left Week 16 with a left knee injury.

Bills WR Marcus Easley exited Week 11 against the Patriots with a concussion.

He was injured on the first punt of the game. Easley doesn't play offense, but is a core special teams member, signing a four-year, $7 million pact in March.

Bills re-signed WR Marcus Easley to a four-year, $7 million contract.

Easley doesn't play offense, but is an elite special teamer for the Bills. He made 11 tackles while covering kicks last season and will fill the same role in 2015.

The Bills would like to retain free agent special teamer Marcus Easley.

"He’s a hell of a special teams player and we’re excited, and we hopefully can get him back," said GM Doug Whaley. Easley only played three snaps on offense in 2014, but recorded 11 special teams tackles in ten games. He should be cheap to retain.

Bills special teamer Marcus Easley (knee) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

WR/KR Marcus Easley left the Bills' Week 3 game against the Chargers with a knee injury.

Easley's lower leg was caught underneath a tackler on a kick return in the third quarter. He needed help getting off the field. His is officially questionable, but he is likely out for the game.

Marcus Easley had three catches for 46 yards Friday in the Bills' second preseason game.

Easley played with the first-team offense with Steve Johnson and T.J. Graham sidelined and helped set up both of the Bills' first-half scoring drives. Through two preseason games, he has 10 receptions for 140 yards. Easley is practice squad eligible, but could draw interest on waivers if he doesn't make the roster.

Bills declared WR/KR Marcus Easley (hamstring) inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Easley was promoted from the practice squad in Week 10 but has appeared in just one game this season. The Bills have also ruled out DE Mark Anderson, QB Tarvaris Jackson, LB Chris White, OL Keith Williams, DL Jay Ross, and OL Chris Scott for Sunday's game. Anderson, out since Week 5, has a chance to return for the regular season finale.

Bills WR/KR Marcus Easley (hamstring) will not play in Week 16.

Easley went down on Sunday while making his second appearance of the season. He spent most of the year on the practice squad.
Tue, Dec 18, 2012 08:13:00 AM

Coach Chan Gailey confirmed that WR Marcus Easley earned his promotion from the practice squad through steady improvement on the field.

"He's played extremely well on the scout team," coach Chan Gailey said. "He deserves an opportunity to come up and see what he might be able to do." Gailey did say, however, that Easley likely would not have been promoted if not for Stevie Johnson's thigh injury. Barring a setback for Johnson, Easley will be among the inactives this week.

Bills promoted WR Marcus Easley from their practice squad.

Disappointing rookie kickoff specialist John Potter was waived in a corresponding move. Although he has the requisite size/speed package to emerge as a deep threat, Easley's development has been stalled by injuries the past two seasons. He was a major disappointment in training camp this summer. Easley will add depth with Stevie Johnson nursing a deep thigh bruise this week.

Bills waived WR Marcus Easley and LB Tank Carder.

A fourth-round pick in 2010, Easley missed his entire rookie year with a knee injury, and all of 2011 with a heart condition. He never rose above the fourth-string during the preseason. A fifth-round pick, Carder is a surprising cut, but will presumably be stashed on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 05:34:00 PM

Beat writer Mark Ludwiczak believes Marcus Easley needs "a major breakthrough performance to have any chance of sticking around."

Ludwiczak notes that Easley hasn't shown much "explosiveness" in his routes and "hasn't lived up to the hype" in training camp. Even if the Bills keep six receivers, Easley is behind Ruvell Martin and perhaps even Naaman Roosevelt in the battle for the final spot.
