–The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team has signed DE Corbin Bryant to the Practice Squad. Bryant fills the team’s open practice squad slot as DB Delano Howell was signed to the 53-man roster of the Indianapolis Colts.
Bryant entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Pittsburgh in 2011. The 6-4, 300-pound Northwestern product spent portions of the 2011 and 2012 seasons on the Steelers’ Practice Squad and 53-man roster. Bryant started 35 of 47 games played at Northwestern and recorded 89 tackles, 19.5 tackles for losses and 4.5 sacks.
–To help combat another cold Western New York winter, the Buffalo Bills, M&T Bank and the Salvation Army have launched the collection of new jackets, hats, gloves, and any other warm clothing for the Gift of Warmth – an annual drive to ensure area residents have the protection they need from the winter elements. For those who’d like to help make a difference, there will be an opportunity Sunday, December 2nd, at the “Gift of Warmth Game Day Collection” prior to kick-off against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Volunteers will be collecting new winter clothing to be distributed to those in need in time for the holiday season. More information can be found on buffalobills.com/giftofwarmth.

DE Mario Williams
Q: Can you describe the mood of the team today?
A: Definitely we are anxious to get back out there. No matter what, good or bad whatever the record is, it is just a new week. You have to go out there and you have to work. You have to get after it. You have to keep your morale and your mental state high regardless of what happens.
