Goodwin Leaves Practice Early: Marquise Goodwin left practice early today with a minor calf injury. He was taken out as a precaution but is expected to be fine for the game on Sunday. Kyle Williams returned to practice after sitting Wednesday as he usually does to rest his Achilles. Scott Chandler missed practice because his wife is expecting a baby today. The coaches turned up the heat in the fieldhouse to get the team ready for the hot weather in Tampa. Coach Marrone said he doesn't think newly signed Tony Moeaki will play on Sunday, he doesn't think he will know enough of the offense. Injury Page.
Bounce Back in Tampa? The Bills look to make a quick recovery from the devastating loss in Toronto last week. They have a chance to do just that on Sunday against the 3-9 Buccaneers. Look for the Bills defense to try and bounce back from their worst performance of the year last week. Game Preview.

Bills Sign TE Moeaki: Don't know if it had anything to do with the big drop Scott Chandler made on Sunday but the Bills have filled their open roster spot by signing veteran TE Tony Moeaki to a reported two year deal. He was a third round pick of the Chiefs in 2010 and had three injury plagued seasons before being waived-injured after getting hurt in the preseason. He is now healthy and worked out for Tennessee while Tampa Bay were also interested in him after he received an injury settlement from Kansas City making him a free agent. Front Office Page.
Choice Honored: Every Bill but Kyle Williams practiced today with the team. Williams was taking his usual Wednesday off to rest his Achilles. Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller each wore a #20 practice jersey in honor of Tashard Choice who was very well liked in the locker room before being released today. Injury Page.
Bills Release Choice: In a somewhat surprising move the Bills have released RB Tashard Choice. The veteran was in his third season in Buffalo as the third string running back. The move likely opens up a little playing time for Ronnie Wingo. Choice was a solid back when called upon and a leader in the locker room but had only four games left on his contract and they likely want to see what they have in Wingo. The team didn't immediately fill the open roster spot. Depth Chart.
Toronto Series To Be Re-evaluated? In his weekly radio spot on WGR Russ Brandon said that every aspect of the organization will be looked at on January 1st. He said that includes the Toronto series. When asked if he can get out of the last four years of the agreement he just said that they will look at everything. This is the first time a bit of doubt was cast on the series. Brandon also said that the team while winning is most important they need to be viable and that only two games truly soldout with the other Ralph Wilson Stadium games being orchestrated to sellouts. The final game at the Ralph will likely be blacked out since there are still 20,000 tickets left.

Practice Squad Swap: The Bills seem to be making a habit out of swapping offensive linemen on the practice squad. Today they released Manase Foketi, who was signed just last week, and signed 6-3, 306-pound Jamaal Johnson-Webb. The rookie from Alabama A&M was an undrafted free agent signed by the Cardinals after the draft. He was released before the season started and spent some time this year on the practice squad's of Chicago and Minnesota.
Future Ownership: This week Tony Bogyo decided not to do his usual column lamenting another devastating loss for the Bills. Instead he takes on a much bigger issue, the future of the franchise after Ralph Wilson. Complete Story.

No New Injuries: Doug Marrone said the team came out of yesterday's loss in pretty good shape injury wise. There were no new injuries to report but there will be some players who are limited when they practice on Wednesday. C.J. Spiller tweaked his ankle, Stephon Gilmore appeared to get a cramp, and EJ Manuel got the wind knocked out of him in the game. Injury Page.

Gameday Grades: The Bills showed once again that they just don't know how to win. It was proven again with offensive miscues and defensive mistakes as well. It all hurts the final breakdown of player grades. Gameday Grades.
Bills Blitz: The Bills had many chances to put this game away but fell to the Falcons 34-31 when Matt Bryant hit the game winning field goal in overtime. The Bills held a touchdown lead when an interference penalty in the end zone on Nickell Robey on a 3rd and 16 play setup the Falcons for the tying score. The Bills got in position to win it but Stevie Johnson fumbled the ball away after making a third down catch that would have setup a potential winning field goal in regulation. In overtime the Bills got the ball first but Scott Chandler fumbled the ball away after making a downfield catch and the Falcons drove down for the winning kick. The Bills opened up a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on touchdown runs by EJ Manuel and Fred Jackson. The Falcons opened up a 24-17 lead in the third quarter but a fumble recovery by Kiko Alonso led to Jackson's second touchdown of the day to tie it on a 21 yard catch and run. C.J. Spiller gave the Bills the lead on a 36 yard touchdown run as he had a season high 149 yards on 15 carries. Bills Blitz.
Bills Come Out Healthy: C.J. Spiller, Stephon Gilmore, and EJ Manuel all missed plays after getting banged up but all of them returned. Spiller seemed to aggravate his ankle injury. Gilmore seemed to have a cramp and Manuel got the wind knocked out of him after a tough hit that a roughing penalty was called on. Injury Page.
Williams To Play: Kyle Williams will play in today's game against Atlanta. He was the only player up in the air because of a back problem that creeped up on Friday. For the first time all year every scratch is a healthy one, they are: Jeff Tuel, Antoine McClain, Ronnie Wingo, Ty Powell, Chris Gragg, J.J. Unga, and Brandon Smith. Gragg is a bit of a surprise since they have got him a bit more involved in recent weeks but with everyone healthy there were hard choices for the inactive list.

Kyle Williams Questionable: You knew it was too good to be true that the Bills would enter Sunday's game totally healthy for the first time all year. Kyle Williams woke up today and his back locked up on him as he got out of bed. He did not practice today and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. This is new territory for him as he never had back spasms before. He will get treatment today and tomorrow in hopes of getting ready to play. Everyone else is healthy with Stevie Johnson, Robert Woods, and Nickell Robey on the injury report but they practiced fully all week and are all listed as probable. Injury Page.
