Head Coach Chan Gailey on how he looks at his roster to make cuts– “What we do is we keep the players that we think can help us go win at Kansas City.  Once we get that group down, then we go to the next group of players that are going to be backups, that are going to play special teams, that are going to be involved down the line, potentially some things in them that make them players down the line.  You’ve got probably your 48 that you know are going to go out there and play and be involved in the game this week against Kansas City, you know that.  It’s those next six or seven guys that you have to make decisions on.


Bills LB Shawne Merriman continues to impress this preseason with three tackles against the Lions (while only playing seven snaps with the first unit).
