Kroft has done a ton of work behind the scenes, according to the tweet. However there is no timeline for a return to the field so he could be in danger of missing games in the season. Knox and Smith are up next on the depth chart.
The Bills are loaded at running back, with LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore leading the way. But a rookie is getting plenty of chances to show what he can do.
Via Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com, Devin Singletary got “a ton” of first-team reps at practice on Sunday.
Singletary was a third round pick this past draft, which is significant for running backs. This is likely a case of just keeping McCoy and Gore fresh, but the story mentioned McCoy's production last season and his $6-plus million salary all leading to speculation the team could ask McCoy to take a pay cut - or possibly even move on from him.
The Buffalo Bills have placed RB Frank Gore on the Non-Football Injury list to begin training camp, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Gore is far past the stage of his career where he has earned the ability to skip some practices at training camp, as this is move is likely just to give Gore some rest and keep him as fresh as possible for the season. He is fully expected to be ready for the start of the season and is among a group of running backs competing for looks in Buffalo including LeSean McCoy, T.J. Yeldon and rookie Devin Singletary.
"I wouldn't be shocked if [Devin Singletary] emerges as the most relevant running back for fantasy owners by the end of the season." "The Bills love him"
LeSean McCoy currently owns the starting gig in the Bills backfield, but he's tough to trust heading into the 2019 season. He barely cracked 500 rushing yards last year and being on the wrong side of 30 doesn't help. Drafted in the third round, Devin Singletary is actually similar to a younger McCoy is his elusive ability and could see significant playing time in Buffalo in 2019.
Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters that starting TE Tyler Kroft suffered a broken foot during yesterday’s OTAs and will need surgery.
Tyler Kroft’s timeframe for recovery is 3-4 months, source said. That puts him right up against the start of the season and raises the possibility of beginning the season on the PUP list.
Kroft was the designated starter at TE on his new team in Buffalo but was only in streaming consideration heading into the fantasy season. If he misses significant time, Jason Croom will take over as the TE target for sophomore QB Josh Allen.
Bills aren't done at WR. They will sign WR Cole Beasley, sources say. He'll get $29 million over four years.
Beasley will play the slot for the Bills, a role that was manned mostly by Zay Jones and Isaiah McKenzie last year. Beasley could have some value in PPR formats, though Josh Allen doesn't seem like the kind of quarterback to check down all that often.
Buffalo intends to sign former Ravens' WR John Brown to a three-year, $27 million deal.
This signing takes some wind out of the sails of Robert Foster, who came on late last year as the Bills' primary deep threat. It's not a terrible landing spot for Brown since he'll be playing with Josh Allen, who has a pretty good deep ball and isn't afraid to take deep shots. Still, the Bills' offense isn't potent enough to support multiple fantasy starters at the receiver position.
Cole Beasley: Honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to.
Beasley is about to become a free agent and based on this tweet it seems he may not be back with the Cowboys. Beasley went on to say he hasn't been a huge priority when it comes to catches. "Maybe that will change but I’m not sure. More balls come my way in 2 minute drill where nothing is planned," Beasley's tweet continued.
Contentment is a state of mind that John Brown continues to pursue, and the wide receiver said he prefers to remain with the Ravens rather than test the free-agent market.
“I’d just rather have fun and be in a happy place,” he said Monday. “This is a place I’m happy with. As long as it’s good enough money to take care of my family, I’d love to be back.”
Brown, who signed a one-year, $5 million deal with $4 million guaranteed on March 15, was the team’s leading receiver, catching 34 passes for 601 yards and four touchdowns in nine starts with Joe Flacco at quarterback. When rookie Lamar Jackson replaced Flacco for the last seven games, Brown’s numbers dropped to eight receptions for 114 yards and one score, the story said. Of course, the team seemed to make it very clear Jackson is the future at QB and the Ravens seem ready to move on from Flacco.
