QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills tight ends coach Bob Bicknell on tight end Scott Chandler – “He’s a physical kid in terms of his size. He can run. He can be a physical matchup against the people he’s running routes against just with his size.  He catches the ball very naturally. He can move. He was a good blocker. He’s got some things he can work on there, but he really did a good job for us as a point of attack type of guy. He kind of gives us a little bit of both where he can be a pass receiver and also a run blocker.”

NOTES AND NUMBERS
Uniform Fact of the Day
