Tashard Choice may have only practiced twice since being signed by the Bills on Wednesday, but his retention of Buffalo’s offensive system will give him a very good chance of getting on the field today against the Jets. “He retained a lot,” said head coach Chan Gailey. Gailey, who coached Choice for his last three seasons of college at Georgia Tech, has a lot of the same terminology for his offense with the Bills that he had at Georgia Tech. “He’s a smart kid,” said Gailey. “He’s quick, strong and aggressive. He’s a very good pass protector, he can catch the ball out of the backfield. He plays bigger than you think. He’s not tall, but he’s 211 pounds and he’s very strong.” Don’t be shocked if Choice serves as a third-down back in passing situations against the Jets.

Gauging C.J.’s progress

While fans might have their opinions of C.J. Spiller as a back in the NFL, Buffalo’s head coaching staff believes the lack of opportunities for Spiller this season has left the jury out on just how much progress he has made in his second NFL season. Spiller has had just 21 carries this season, due mainly to the ridiculous production of Fred Jackson. But now with Jackson injured...

Troup could be shut down for season

Troup missed Sunday's game in New York after the persistent lower back tightness that has plagued him all year flared up Saturday night. It then got worse on game day. "It really locked up Sunday morning," coach Chan Gailey said. "They did more tests [Monday...

Troup’s season in jeopardy

Little to change w/C.J. as lead

With C.J. Spiller now the lead back in the wake of Fred Jackson’s move to I-R many wonder how the Bills offense might change to better suit Spiller’s skill set, which includes more speed out of the backfield than was provided by Jackson. Head coach Chan Gailey indicated that not a whole lot will be different. “It changes a little bit,” said Gailey. ”You’ve got 10 other...
