What Buffalo Bills are saying about quarterback battle, EJ Manuel, Tyrod Taylor

"The Buffalo Bills have played two preseason games and still don’t seem any closer to figuring out who their starting quarterback will be in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.In an 11-10 win over the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Tyrod Taylor completed seven of his 10 passes for 65 yards while rushing four times for 41 yards against the Browns’ starters. EJ Manuel played the second half and went 9-for-14 for 111 yards and a touchdown against the backups."

Young backs step up

"When Rex Ryan saw number 41 running onto the field with the offense he did a double take Thursday night. Jersey 41 is worn by CB Cam Thomas, who hasn’t participated in training camp due to injury, which was probably why Ryan was doing a double take before it dawned on him that it was one of his newest running backs Cierre Wood. Such was the situation for Buffalo’s offense as Wood was lining up for the first time with the Bills in a live preseason game with all of a couple of walk throughs to work off of.“I swear I looked at 41 and thought he was DB and then it was, oh okay that’s Wood, bring the wood to them,” said Ryan."

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus wants contract similar to Ndamukong Suh‘s — and he’s earned it

"If you’re a Buffalo Bills fan, you’re probably aware that defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, the team’s top pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, is entering the final year of his contract. The Bills and Dareus and have been talking about a new deal, but they aren’t close to an agreement.On Thursday night, after the Bills beat the Cleveland Browns 11-10 in a preseason contest, Dareus made it known that he isn’t happy about the contract talks.His beef is with the Bills’ front office. Reports say the team offered a contract in the six-year, $90 million range. The length may be right, but Dareus is looking for a higher dollar amount."

Tyrod Taylor shines for injury-depleted Buffalo Bills

"How about that Tyrod Taylor?Despite being surrounded by only laughable talent — nothing but down-roster receivers and emergency-signee running backs — the shifty Buffalo Bills quarterback on Thursday night impressed for the second time in as many preseason games.Only this time, he showed he could do it not just when pass plays break down, but from the pocket, an integral and increasingly elusive attribute in the 2010s NFL."
