Amidst the whirlwind of signings of late, it's almost easy to forget that Buffalo ended the season with many of their prime players healing from the bumps and bruises of the game. Major names fell to season-ending injuries too often throughout the year and while it's wonderful that names like Steve Johnson and Scott Chandler have gotten so much attention lately, there are some still recovering in the off season. For those of you curious as to the status of some of the key players on the Buffalo Bills, here's an update on some of the more essential pieces for the upcoming 2012 season. 6. Roscoe Parrish - Originally slated by many to be the Robin to Stevie Johnson's Batman in 2011, the seventh year receiver was lost to a severe left ankle injury early in the year.

No thanks for Manning (and other Bills thoughts)

Okay, I'm about to wander down a very unfamiliar path for me: Writing about the Bills. However, there have been some folks on Twitter and elsewhere who want to cut Ryan Fitzpatrick and go after Peyton Manning. I feel the need to get this out there for those of you who are thinking that.  It's a terrible idea, and it's never going to happen. Peyton Manning is a future...

According to Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 in Buffalo, the Bills might possibly target wide receiver Marques Colston, once free agency kicks off next week.
