Chargers Prepare for Tough Road Game in Buffalo

Chargers Prepare for Tough Road Game in Buffalo

Peter G. Aiken/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) — The San Diego Chargers (1-1) have a tough task at hand on Sunday when they travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills (2-0).

San Diego is coming off a big win against the Seattle Seahawks in week 2 and quarterback Philip Rivers understands this will be another challenge in a long season.

“It’s going to be tough,” Rivers said. “[They're] not a team we’re overly familiar with and they’ve won two in a row. We got to go play good.”

Chargers head coach Mike McCoy is doing everything he can to prepare his defense for stand-out rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

“He’s on his first go-around with each defensive back,” McCoy said of the rookie.  “He plays it for a little bit and as the game goes on he learns a few more things about the technique that guys trying to play. He’s got so much to learn, but he’s done a nice job the first couple weeks of the season, very explosive player.”

Sammy Watkins Hurts Ribs

Sammy Watkins Hurts Ribs

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) — Buffalo Bills first-round draft pick Sammy Watkins left Saturday night’s preseason game against the Steelers with a rib contusion in the first quarter and did not return.

Watkins was trying to pull in a pass by EJ Manuel on a quick slant that was low and incomplete.  Steelers defender Cortez Allen fell to the ground while trying to make the play and linebacker Ryan Shazier jumped to avoid Allen and collided with Watkins’ rib cage.

“I think Sammy will be fine,” Manuel said. “Hopefully he’ll come back and bounce back from whatever little injury he had.”

Watkins walked to the locker room on his own power, but the Bills have still not released any further update after he received X-rays.

Giants Beat Buffalo in Hall of Fame Game

Giants Beat Buffalo in Hall of Fame Game

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(CANTON, Ohio) — Backup quarterback Ryan Nassib connected with rookie wide receiver Corey Washington on a 73-yard strike in the fourth quarter to help give the New York Giants a 17-13 win over the Buffalo Bills in the preseason-opening Hall of Fame game.

The Giants (1-0) debuted their new offense, courtesy of first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo, and showed off a balanced attack. Most impressive was the combination of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams in the backfield. The rookie Williams led the Giants with 43 rushing yards on seven carries. His best run, a 21-yard scamper, led to New York’s first touchdown of the night and gave them a 7-3 first quarter lead.

Buffalo (0-1) countered with a two-yard pass from Jeff Teul to Robert Woods in the second quarter before heading into halftime tied at 10-10. The Bills then took the lead on a Dan Carpenter field goal and held that advantage until Nassib and Washington connected.

Starting quarterback Eli Manning was 6-for-7 in three series for 43 yards but lost a fumble. EJ Manuel struggled in his two series, completing just two passes for only 19 yards.

Bon Jovi Writes a Letter to Bills Fans

Bon Jovi Writes a Letter to Bills Fans

Paul Zimmerman/WireImage(CANTON, Ohio) — New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi wrote a letter to Bills fans as the location of their team moving forward is in question.

The Buffalo News published a letter by Bon Jovi on Sunday that showed his intentions to keep them in Buffalo.

“There has been a lot of conjecture, so we think it’s important to clarify our intentions to the fans of the team and people of Buffalo,” Bon Jovi wrote. “I know how much the Bills mean to the people of this region. So I want you to hear this from me: I’m not risking it all to let you down. If we are given the chance to be the next owners of the Buffalo Bills, I promise you that we will bring the same passion that you do every Sunday, every day.”

The Bills lease in Buffalo runs through the 2022 and the Bills Fan Alliance, a group of fans and business leaders still questioned Bon Jovi’s letter.

“While we appreciate his sentiment, it’s worth noting that nowhere in his letter does he write or directly state that he will ‘not move the Bills from Buffalo,’ ” wrote the Alliance’s directors, Matt Sabuda, Brian Cinelli and Steve Brady.

“Anything short of formal action taken on their part will be viewed as nothing more than rhetoric,” the Alliance directors wrote.”

Bon Jovi did not name the Toronto partners that are on his team in the letter published on Sunday.

Bills DT Marcell Dareus Fails Conditioning Test

Bills DT Marcell Dareus Fails Conditioning Test

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(PITTSFORD, N.Y.) —  The Buffalo Bills opened their 2014 training camp over the weekend, but one of their best defensive players did not come prepared.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus failed a conditioning test when he reported to camp, the team has confirmed.  Dareus remained on the active/non-football injury list as the Bills held their first training camp practice Sunday evening.

“He’s not the only one, but obviously you want your players to come in and be ready to go,” coach Doug Marrone said Sunday. “We’re here for a long period of time and we’ll make up for it.”

Dareus reportedly will not re-take the conditioning test until Thursday, at the earliest. 

The Pro Bowler was also arrested twice this offseason and could face a suspension from the NFL.  Nonetheless, Marrone expects him to play at a high level this season.

“He’ll be in shape and ready to play,” Marrone said. “Right now he needs to focus on getting himself ready, getting himself on the field, and focus on football.

Kiko Alonso Suffers Torn ACL

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Buffalo Bills suffered a hit to their defense on Tuesday.  Top linebacker Kiko Alonso is expected to miss the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL injury.

“We feel badly for Kiko because he has worked very hard this offseason in preparation for the upcoming season, but we look forward to his return with his style of play that made him one of the league’s outstanding rookies in 2013,” Bills general manager Doug Whaley said in a statement on Wednesday.

Alonso was recovering from hip surgery this offseason. 

Alonso won the Defensive Rookie of the Year last season and finished third in combined tackles.

The Bills begin training camp on July 18.

Saints Safety Jairus Byrd to Undergo Back Surgery

Saints Safety Jairus Byrd to Undergo Back Surgery

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(METAIRIE, La.) — One of highest-profile free agents this off-season is set to undergo back surgery as New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd is set to go under the knife.

Saints head coach Sean Payton said that Byrd will probably miss all of OTA’s as well as minicamps over the next month.

“This is something after the doctors looked at it, and the specialists out in [Los Angeles] looked at it, [they] felt this was one scenario that would kind of take care of it rather than try to [keep managing it],” Payton said of Byrd’s surgery. “If it was during the season, you wouldn’t go through the procedure. You would treat it symptomatically then.”

Byrd is a three-time Pro Bowl player, and is one of the best at his position. Earlier in the off-season, the Saints signed Byrd to a six-year deal worth $54 million, with $20.03 million of that guaranteed.

The 27-year-old Byrd spent all five seasons of his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills before signing with the Saints.
