Bills Dump Wide Outs Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes

The Bills have released veteran wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes on Tuesday, Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com reports.

Both Benjamin and Holmes saw their playtime percentage decrease on offense in recent weeks due to the emergence and production of Foster, McKenzie and Zay Jones.

Benjamin struggled to produce as a number one receiver in Buffalo’s passing attack this season. He also had trouble securing the football on potential scoring plays and was criticized for his effort by fans.

Filling the two vacant spots on Buffalo’s roster are DE Mike Love and CB Denzel Rice from the practice squad.

The Bills also placed center Russell Bodine on the injured reserve list.

If you didn’t make out what Hughes was saying, “You call me a (expletive), I’ll catch you. Trust me, I’ll catch you, guaranteed.”

As he was being escorted back to the locker room, he yelled “I’m going to knock his ass out when I see him. I’m going to hurry up and get dressed. He called me a (expletive).”

The defensive linemen claimed that the official called him the derogatory name on the field (a b#tch), which set off the linemen.

Bills Rookie QB Josh Allen to Be Back at Practice Monday

Bills head coach Sean McDermott says rookie quarterback Josh Allen will practice in full on Monday according to the team’s Twitter account.

McDermott would not publicly commit to the rookie starting against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12 but the practice puts him on track to return to the lineup. Allen, the No.7-overall pick in the 2018 draft out of Wyoming, has been sidelined since October 14 with an elbow injury.

Nathan Peterman Expected to Start for Bills Sunday; Anderson Suffering From a Concussion

Bills quarterback Derek Anderson is suffering from a concussion sustained in their Monday night loss to the Patriots. Nathan Peterman is expected to start Sunday at quarterback against the Chicago Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

“We’ll see where things stand as we go through the week with Derek,” McDermott said. “Then we’ll take it from there.”

McDermott ruled out rookie quarterback Josh Allen for Sunday’s game, meaning he will miss his third consecutive contest after spraining his right elbow in an Oct. 14 loss to the Houston Texans. McDermott said Allen remains week-to-week and is “making good progress” in his recovery but has yet to resume throwing.

Anderson was escorted off the field after he was sacked by New England Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy with 1:25 remaining in the Bills’ 25-6 loss Monday night. Anderson completed 22 of 39 passes for 290 yards but threw a fourth-quarter interception to Patriots safety Devin McCourty that was returned 84 yards for a touchdown.
