Sun, 06 Sep 2009 22:41:23 -0700

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports Buffalo Bills head coach Dick Jauron said the team didn't make any easy moves when it came to cutting players at the deadline.

By releasing RB Dominic Rhodes, the Bills are down to tailbacks Fred Jackson and Xavier Omon for the first three games while Marshawn Lynch serves his suspension. "We wish Dominic the best. He's a good player," Jauron said of his former back.

Bills | Want to manage Lynch workload

Thu, 16 Jul 2009 08:10:16 -0700

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports the Buffalo Bills coaching staff wants to effectively manage the carries of RB Marshawn Lynch this season due to his physical running style. The coaching staff plans to do so by making use of RBs Fred Jackson and Dominic Rhodes in 2009. To what degree the two will be used to spell Lynch remains to be seen. The Bills plan to run with more no huddle this season, so the added tempo will reduce time between snaps and wear running backs out quicker. Lynch, by the way, has bulked up to 230 pounds, but he said the extra mass has not caused him to lose a step this year.

Jauron liked the way both runners were utilized in the offense last year, but he wanted another dependable back to add to the mix, too. "We'd like to take a little bit of pressure off of them," Jauron said of Lynch and Jackson.

Thu, 16 Jul 2009 07:44:16 -0700

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports Buffalo Bills RB Marshawn Lynch traditionally finishes the year stronger than he starts.
