T.J. Graham dropping passes has been a "recurring theme" during training camp.

According to ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak, "time may be running out" for Graham. The third-year receiver is competing for No. 5 duties and doesn't contribute on special teams. Graham is a long shot to make the 53-man roster. Another team will likely give him a chance thanks to his blazing 4.34 wheels.

The Buffalo News reports Bills LT Cordy Glenn (illness, NFI) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

However, Glenn "isn't expected back soon." The Bills have released vanishingly-few details about Glenn's condition, but the Buffalo News' team source would be "shocked" if he wasn't ready for Week 1. Seventh-rounder Seantrel Henderson has been running with the first team in Glenn's absence.

According to WGR 550 Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia, rookie OT Cyrus Kouandjio "has not been the player the team was expecting when they selected him in the second round" of May's draft.

Buscaglia reports Kouandjio has been outplayed by both incumbent RT Erik Pears and seventh-round pick Seantrel Henderson. Kouandjio seemed to be penciled in to Buffalo's starting right tackle job when he was drafted, but Pears appears to be comfortably ahead of him on the depth chart. Kouandjio could also fall behind Henderson when LT Cordy Glenn (illness) gets cleared.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora suggests the Bills could trade C.J. Spiller before the season.

It's hard to imagine because Spiller is Buffalo's best playmaker on a team very much in win-now mode. La Canfora's story also doesn't cite sources, hinting it's mere speculation. It's interesting nonetheless. Spiller is entering the final year of his contract. The Bills have expressed interest in signing him long term, but Spiller currently has no agent. "A trade market for Spiller could well develop over the next month," La Canfora wrote of Spiller, who was not drafted by current Bills GM Doug Whaley. The Bills have Fred Jackson, Bryce Brown, and Anthony Dixon behind Spiller.

Bills TE Tony Moeaki is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Moeaki is expected to be out "awhile," according to HC Doug Marrone, and should be considered week-to-week. The Bills have signed TE Dominique Jones as a camp body until he's ready to return. Injury-prone throughout his career, Moeaki needs to get healthy to secure a roster spot.

Bills signed TE Dominique Jones.

Jones, 26, will add depth with Tony Moeaki and Chris Gragg dealing with injuries. A third-year UDFA, Jones appeared in two games last season and was waived by Kansas City in March.

Recently signed CB Kamaal McIlwain has stood out at Bills' camp.

According to WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia, McIlwain has "consistently played physically" and shown good awareness. Undrafted out of Newberry in 2011, McIlwain has spent time with Carolina and Kansas City in his career, but has yet to log a snap. He has a chance to crack the Bills' 53-man roster if his stellar play continues.

Bills coach Doug Marrone told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport he believes seventh-round LT Seantrel Henderson "can be special."

A former top high school recruit, Henderson had an up-and-down career at the University of Miami and fell to the seventh round due to character issues. With Cordy Glenn's (illness, NFI) health status up in the air, Henderson is a candidate to be the Bills' Week 1 left tackle. It's conceivable Henderson could be Buffalo's blind-side answer of the future, with Glenn eventually moving to guard.

The Associated Press reports the Jon Bon Jovi-fronted ownership group interested in buying the Bills has "conducted a feasibility study into buying the (team) and building a stadium in Toronto."

This has been the belief all along, but the group has publicly claimed otherwise. Under the terms of the Bills' stadium lease, the Wilson family is not allowed to negotiate with anyone, who "to their knowledge," has an intention of relocating the team before 2022. The league appears to be interested in keeping the team in Buffalo.

Through four days of Bills training camp, first-round pick Sammy Watkins has "continued to dazzle ... even burning top cornerback Stephon Gilmore quite easily on a few occasions."

WGR 550 Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia is doing daily practice reports live from Bills camp, and on two of the first four days Buscaglia has named Watkins the MVP of workouts. While Watkins is undoubtedly an exciting talent, we remain skeptical he'll live up to his mid-seventh-round fantasy Average Draft Position with suspect quarterback play on the NFL's run-heaviest team. Sammy is being drafted before Golden Tate, Kendall Wright, Reggie Wayne, and Eric Decker.

Bills activated DT Alan Branch from the active/NFI list.

He's passed his conditioning test. Branch returns as one of the Bills' primary run stuffers.
Jul 24 - 5:54 PM

Bills activated DT Marcell Dareus from the active/PUP list.

Dareus has passed his conditioning test after showing up to camp out of shape. It shows a lack of professionalism, but isn't a concern for Dareus' 2014 status. Dareus is emerging as one of the league's better defensive linemen.
Jul 24 - 5:47 PM

Coach Doug Marrone confirmed the Bills' starting right guard job is up for grabs.

Kraig Urbik is the incumbent, while Chris Hairston is his main competition. Hairston can play any position on the line besides center and is returning after missing all of last season with an undisclosed illness. Urbik is scheduled to count $3.375 million against the cap. He graded out as a top-20 guard at PFF in 2013, receiving positive marks both in the run and pass games. If LT Cordy Glenn is sidelined into the season, Hairston is more likely to fill in there.

Bills DT Alan Branch failed his conditioning test and is on the NFI list.

Marcell Dareus' failed test grabbed the headlines, but Branch also couldn't complete the task. Both defensive tackles are expected to retake the test Thursday or Friday.

Bills third-round pick Preston Brown opened camp as the second-team middle linebacker behind Brandon Spikes.

A pre-camp report stated Brown would be in the hunt to replace WLB Kiko Alonso (ACL), but Mike 'backer is his natural position. He figures to take over there in 2015, when Spikes hit free agency. Nigel Bradham is getting the first crack at Alonso's weak-side job, with Keith Rivers stationed on the strong side.
