Bills placed CB Leodis McKelvin (ankle) on the active/PUP list.

McKelvin was expected to be ready for camp after breaking his ankle last November, but is apparently still healing up. There's little reason to doubt McKelvin's Week 1 status, but it's surprising he's still not ready to go.

Bills placed DE/OLB Mario Williams on the active/PUP list.

Williams' "injury" is undisclosed. The superstar pass rusher should be ready to go in a couple of days.

ESPN's Mike Rodak considers Tyrod Taylor a lock or near lock for the final roster.

Matt Cassel was so bad during offseason workouts that he enters camp with ground to make up on Taylor and E.J. Manuel. In fact, both Rodak and the Buffalo News are giving Taylor a serious shot to win the Week 1 starting job. That would be an interesting deep-league fantasy development as Taylor would project for plenty of running yards. In 15 limited preseason outings as a Raven, he rushed 58 times for 453 yards (7.81 YPC) with two touchdowns. A 26-year-old fifth-year player, Taylor has never started an NFL game.

ESPN's Mike Rodak considers Fred Jackson a lock or near lock for the final roster.

The Bills' website reported similarly over the weekend. Jackson will join Boobie Dixon and Karlos Williams as backups to workhorse LeSean McCoy. A few months ago, RBs coach Anthony Lynn said he'd like to cut F-Jax's snaps in half after the 34-year-old wore down last season and finished with a career-worst 3.72 YPC.

Sammy Watkins (hip surgery) says he's 100 percent.

Watkins spent most of the offseason resting and stretching following February surgery to repair a torn labrum. "And now my body feels great. I feel like I’m 17," he said. Watkins currently has an early fifth-round ADP even though his quarterback will be E.J. Manuel, Matt Cassel or Tyrod Taylor.

The Buffalo News reports Percy Harvin required "plenty of detailed instruction on how to run routes" in OTAs.

Per reporter Vic Carucci, Harvin "made progress, but needs to make more." Carucci expects Harvin to open the season as the Bills' No. 3 receiver behind Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, "limiting" his touches. Harvin has never been gifted at the technical aspects of receiving, but remains one of the league's top athletes. He'll continue to be utilized in a gadget manner in addition to his conventional targets this season.

Bills.com’s Chris Brown doesn’t expect the team to cut Fred Jackson.

Jackson’s roster spot isn’t guaranteed under a new coaching staff, but his passing-down ability and veteran presence make him unlikely to get cut. Despite entering his age-34 season, Jackson posted career-best receiving totals last year. Jackson’s 2015 base salary is an affordable $2.35 million.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak doesn’t have Marquise Goodwin on his initial 53-man roster projection.

Goodwin is behind Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Percy Harvin, Chris Hogan, and special teamer Marcus Easley entering training camp. Rex Ryan’s history of keeping situational deep threats (T.J. Graham, Clyde Gates) could ultimately give Goodwin the edge over Hogan. Seventh-round WR Dez Lewis is a candidate to open the year on PUP.

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia reports the Bills are likely to fire OL coach Aaron Kromer.

It's a surprise they haven't done so already. Kromer was arrested two weekends ago for assault and battery after he allegedly pushed a minor, punching the boy in the face and threatening to "kill his family." Kromer has had a rough go of it the past calendar year. Last season, he used NFL Network to blast Jay Cutler anonymously in Chicago before being let go and joining Rex Ryan's staff.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak left Matt Cassel off his initial 53-man roster projection heading into training camp.

Rodak has been driving home the point that Cassel is squarely on the roster bubble in Buffalo. On his way-early roster projection, Rodak has the Bills keeping E.J. Manuel and Tyrod Taylor and cutting Cassel and Matt Simms. There's obviously plenty of time for Cassel to right his spring wrongs, but this just goes to show how truly awful he must have looked at OTAs and minicamp.

Bills WR Marquise Goodwin won a silver medal in the long jump at the Pan Am Games Wednesday.

Goodwin, the two-time NCAA long jump champ while at Texas and a London Olympian, leaped 8.27 meters. He'll return to the Bills in time for training camp and fight for a roster spot a a situational deep threat. He's far better at leaping than at football.
Jul 23 - 9:01 AM

Bills WR Marquise Goodwin qualified for the long-jump finals at the Pan Am Games in Toronto.

It took Goodwin just one jump. He leaped 8.5 meters (26.41 feet), and only needed to beat 8.0 meters to qualify for Wednesday night's finals, which can be seen on ESPN2. Goodwin failed to qualify for the World Championships last month when he finished fourth in the long jump at the U.S. Championships.

Bills.com’s Chris Brown expects Mario Williams to get the majority of his snaps at defensive end.

The Bills ran mostly four-man fronts during their OTAs/minicamp. Williams should see limited time as a standup linebacker in Rex Ryan’s scheme, and will rarely drop in coverage. He'll also play some five-technique next to Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus. Buffalo plans to use Williams similar to how they did in 2013, when he posted 15 TFLs and 13 sacks under ex-DC Mike Pettine.
Jul 17 - 8:44 PM

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes Matt Cassel is on the team's roster bubble.

Rodak is reiterating a point he made last month, but it's still notable. Rodak believes Cassel was "noticeably worse" than E.J. Manuel and Tyrod Taylor this spring. During the Bills' six practices open to the media, Cassel was "inaccurate, made poor decisions with the ball and was intercepted more than the other two quarterbacks." Rodak believes Cassel needs to "clean up his accuracy and interception problems from OTAs" if he wants to cement himself as Rex Ryan's starter. Cutting Cassel would create $4.15 million in cap space.

Bills OL coach Aaron Kromer’s court date is set for August 12.

Kromer, 48, was arrested this week for assault on a minor. There should be more clarity on his NFL status when the case gets resolved. Buffalo has placed Kromer on indefinite administrative leave.
