Charles Clay has yet to be targeted in the passing game through four Bills training camp practices.

Clay is making Gronk-Jimmy Graham money on his new five-year, $38 million deal, but has been concerningly uninvolved in the Bills' early-camp passing game. Clay did say he spends time before and after practice catching balls from Buffalo's motley quarterback crew. Clay's role in new OC Greg Roman's offense remains to be seen. We hope to gain clarity at some point in August.

Bills suspended OL coach Aaron Kromer six games for conduct detrimental to the team.

He's been suspended without pay. Although charges were ultimately dropped against Kromer for allegedly assaulting a kid over the placement of beach chairs, the Bills determined that Kromer's involvement in the incident was enough for relatively harsh discipline. Kromer will return on October 19.

The Buffalo News considers Matt Cassel the "leader in the clubhouse right now" in the Bills' quarterback derby.

Cassel hasn't been particularly sharp in early-camp practices, but he's been more consistent than E.J. Manuel, who has reportedly appeared overwhelmed. Tyrod Taylor would give the Bills' offense a potentially-exciting read-option element, but his passing leaves much to be desired. Regardless of which player "wins" the quarterback battle, his job will be strictly avoiding turnovers in 2015.

Bills coach Rex Ryan has named Richie Incognito the starter at left guard.

Ryan told ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak that he's been "blown away" by Incognito's conditioning this offseason. A year away from football seems to have done Incognito some good. The 32-year-old was a Pro Bowler in 2012 before a bullying scandal sent his career in a downward spiral.

Coach Rex Ryan named Cordy Glenn the Bills' starting left tackle.

The Bills rotated Glenn at right and left tackle during the offseason program, but he was always the team's best option to protect the blind side of (insert quarterback's name). Ryan also named Richie Incognito the Bills' starting left guard. Eric Wood will start at center, and rookie John Miller is the favorite at right guard. Right tackle remains up for competition.
Aug 2 - 12:46 PM

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak said Matt Simms is "not an option" to start at quarterback.

He's been Buffalo's worst quarterback at camp, a remarkable feat considering how poorly Matt Cassel, E.J. Manuel and Tyrod Taylor have played in the early going. A career backup, Simms faces long odds of cracking the 53-man roster.
Aug 2 - 9:28 AM

Bills coach Rex Ryan says he would be "comfortable" starting second-round CB Ronald Darby opposite Stephon Gilmore in Week 1.

With Leodis McKelvin (ankle) out indefinitely following a setback, Darby is soaking up first-team training camp reps and quite possibly making a case for a starting job. Darby was often left on an island in man coverage at Florida State, so his resume fits the profile of a Rex Ryan cornerback.
Aug 1 - 8:24 PM

According to the Buffalo News, Tyrod Taylor is outplaying E.J. Manuel early in Bills camp.

Manuel went 0-for-5 during a stretch of team drills in Saturday's practice, so it's not exactly stiff competition. Matt Cassel has been as up and down as he was during minicamp and OTAs. While we're not yet betting on Taylor winning the Bills' starting job, it's a much more realistic possibility than was originally imagined. Either way, this passing game is going to be quite poor.
Aug 1 - 8:06 PM

Robert Woods is running with the first-team offense at Bills camp.

Woods is penciled in as Buffalo's Z receiver, with Sammy Watkins at X. Percy Harvin and Chris Hogan are working as the second-team wideouts. Woods figures to be a near-every-down player in OC Greg Roman's offense, while Harvin will mix in as a gadget player. Neither is an attractive fantasy investment.
Aug 1 - 7:48 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said he has been "really impressed" with T Seantrel Henderson.

Henderson ended up in the doghouse this offseason after showing up late to mandatory minicamps. It’s clear the new coaching staff is higher on 2014 second-rounder Cyrus Kouandjio, but the competition at right tackle should go well into training camp. Henderson was a major part of Buffalo's offensive line issues despite starting all 16 games last season.
Aug 1 - 12:37 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan admitted CB Leodis McKelvin (ankle) suffered a setback.

McKelvin was expected to be ready for camp, but he opened on the active/PUP list and was spotted Saturday riding a golf cart and scooter around practice. Rookie Ronald Darby is working with the first-team in place of McKelvin and would be the Week 1 starter if McKelvin is forced to miss significant time.
Aug 1 - 12:32 PM

Charges against Bills OL coach Aaron Kromer have been dropped.

Kromer was facing a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly assaulting a minor. The Bills are expected to suspend Kromer without pay to start the season, but he should be allowed to coach at training camp. Kromer is currently on administrative leave.
Jul 31 - 6:05 PM

Bills LE Mario Williams participated in practice on the first day of training camp.

Williams technically opened camp on the active/PUP list due to a minor "back issue," but was out there when the Bills began practicing. The 30-year-old pass rusher will enter 2015 with 10-plus sacks in three straight seasons.
Jul 31 - 2:41 PM

Corey Graham opened training camp as the Bills' starting strong safety.

He got the nod over Duke Williams. Coach Rex Ryan confirmed Graham will run with the ones across from FS Aaron Williams, which should make for a solid safety tandem. Neither has much IDP appeal behind Buffalo's stingy front seven.
Jul 31 - 1:59 PM

Bills FS Aaron Williams underwent offseason hip surgery to repair a torn labrum.

Williams sat out the entire offseason program but was present for the start of training camp Friday. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 70 safety out of 87 qualifiers last season but has a firm grip on a starting job in coach Rex Ryan's new scheme. Williams is adequate both against the run and in coverage.
