Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kellen Heard limped off and did not return after hurting his lower right leg midway through practice Tuesday night. Coach Chan Gailey had no immediate update except to say Heard was having tests. Gailey said backup offensive tackle James Carmon was also having tests after the undrafted rookie hurt his wrist. Heard, who is competing for a backup job, was hurt during a team drill when he went down in a pile of players. He was slow getting up, and then limped off into the end zone. That's where trainers spent about five minutes examining the player's foot and ankle before escorting him to the locker room. Coming off a preseason-opening 7-6 loss to Washington, the Bills play at Minnesota on Friday.

Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson's eyes light up when reminded of the time coach Chan Gailey asserted himself in the face of hecklers at the close of his first training camp two years ago.

Back still a bother for Bills DT Torell Troup

When Torell Troup elected to have back surgery in December, the Buffalo Bills defensive tackle thought it would help further his career.

Buffalo Bills release OL Michael Jasper

The Buffalo Bills have released offensive lineman and former seventh-round pick Michael Jasper three weeks into training camp.

Spiller must find ways to get on the field for Bills

C.J. Spiller enters the 2012 season as once again, the back up to Fred Jackson.

Buffalo Bills Release Lineman Mike Jasper

The biggest gamble of the 2011 NFL Draft has not paid off for the Buffalo Bills, who have released offensive lineman Mike Jasper.

Buffalo Bills: Preseason Game 1 Recap

After the first preseason game of the 2012-2013 season, the Buffalo Bills showed us one thing: They’re not ready yet.  Not even close. In the opening loss to the Redskins, the Bills had 14 penalties for 134 yards. The funny thing is that if Ryan Lindell didn’t miss a 22-yard field goal, the Bills would’ve won the game.  You can try and argue by saying, “Big deal, it...
