NFL Injury Report:
Buffalo Bills safety, Jairus Byrd, who just ended his
lengthy holdout and unenthusiastically flew back into Orchard Park, New York,
appears to have flown in with a busted talon.
Alper of NBCSports reports that Byrd, whose return to Buffalo has hit some turbulence,
will seek a second opinion on his ailing foot.
It is not winter yet in Western New York but Byrd has flown south to
North Carolina to see Dr. Robert Anderson.
Dr. Anderson is the founder of the O.L. Miller Foot and Ankle Institute
and is one of the leading experts in complex foot and ankle disorders.
Byrd has been limited in practice since returning to roost
in Buffalo while trying to learn a new defense.
Byrd is a talented player.
However, he obviously still has a crow in his craw over last year’s
franchise tag. Instead of chewing on his
mouthpiece and being thankful for the 6.9 million reasons he should be happy to
play in the NFL, Byrd has made public his contract catfights with the Bills. This only hurts Byrd.
Injury aside, Byrd should have let his voice be heard on the
field and his future would have been filled with buckets of birdseed. Now other teams and general managers have
taken notice of how he handles his business.
Soon, most teams will see him less as a prized Hyacinth
Macaw and more like a run of the mill common Parakeet.

Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd is getting a second opinion from foot specialist Robert Anderson on an undisclosed foot injury.

Byrd was with the team and was practicing as recently as Tuesday. It's unclear when he was hurt.

Matt Leinart was smart enough to figure out that his time with the Buffalo Bills would be short-lived.
The team cut him Friday and will keep three QBs on the roster: rookie EJ Manuel Kevin Kolb and Jeff Tuel.
Manuel is recovering from minor knee surgery and Kolb is out with a concussion. Tuel will start the Sept. 8 season opener becoming the first undrafted rookie quarterback to...
As other teams have found out over the years, Matt Leinart isn’t the answer. That’s the lesson the Buffalo Bills learned after giving him a shot last night against the Detroit Lions. To be fair to Leinart, he was completely underprepared to be thrown into the Bills’ lineup, and he wasn’t necessarily working with the team’s best group of players either. Still, he needed...
The Buffalo Bills might have to start an undrafted free agent at quarterback in Week 1 but apparently that's not a good enough reason to keep Matt Leinart around.
Leinart the 10th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft tweeted on Friday that he's been released by the Bills. Although Leinart later deleted the tweet this is the internet and nothing is really ever deleted forever...
Remember it well, this week of August 25-31, 2013. For it marked the beginning and the end of the glorious Matt Leinart era in Buffalo. On Sunday, the Bills emerged triumphant in their pitched battle with the Jets to claim Leinart’s epic bro talents. After doing so, the next day the Bills expressed their intention to start undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel in their Week 1 game against...

Buffalo, NY- Despite reports of SS Bryan Scott’s cut from the Bills roster, Tim Graham of buffalonews.com tweeted that the team is looking to trade Scott before the 53-man roster deadline expires tomorrow night.

Concussions might lead to the end of Kolb’s career.
I tweeted 15 minutes ago that the #Bills placed QB Kevin Kolb on injured reserve, they also placed WR Brad Smith per @JoeBuscaglia.

The only encouraging news to come out of the Buffalo Bills' preseason finale occurred about 90 minutes before the opening kickoff.
That's when rookie first-round pick EJ Manuel, dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, tested his injured left knee by throwing numerous passes to several teammates and coaches.
Otherwise, what followed was a meltdown for the Bills (2-2), who unraveled...
