Bills' Seantrel Henderson: Cleared to play again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henderson has been cleared to play following two surgeries due to Crohn's disease, The Buffalo News reports.

Henderson had a fantastic rookie season in 2014, but being in constant pain and uncomfortableness understandably got the better of him in 2015, and he ultimately had to go under the knife to battle all the infected areas. He's reportedly fit to play again, but we imagine he'll have to regain some strength and try to win over the Rex Ryan coaching staff, which didn't coach him when he was a rookie. Henderson will compete with veteran Jordan Mills and Cyrus Kouandjio for the starting right tackle spot.

Bills' Robert Woods: Prominent role awaits?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods is healthy and participating fully in OTAs following offseason groin surgery, The Buffalo News reports. "I'm healthy. I got my speed back. So other than that, it's all timing. Be open, stay open, said Woods. "I feel like I can run again."

Woods is also serving as the top receiver in practice while Sammy Watkins begins his recovery from foot surgery. There's a small chance that could carry over into the season if Watkins doesn't heal properly, though everyone seems to initially think Watkins will be back by Week 1. Woods is a very clear No. 2 entering the final season of his current contract, though we'll note once again the Bills lean extra heavy toward the run.

Bills' Manny Lawson: Set for starter's minutes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

With Shaq Lawson's shoulder injury expected to linger into the regular season, Manny Lawson is expected to start at outside linebacker, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Manny was always going to have a big role for us, albeit as a super sub like a sixth man in basketball if you will," said coach Rex Ryan. "He can back up all four spots (at linebacker). You can put him anywhere. He's such a smart player, but today we absolutely put him in there with the first group at that outside linebacker spot."

Jerry Hughes and Preston Brown would seem to be the more attractive IDP linebackers in this defense, but Manny Lawson can do a number of things capably and he's at least worth keeping an eye on until the younger first-rounder is back from surgery and ready to take over.

Bills' Reggie Ragland: Signs rookie deal with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ragland signed his rookie deal Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Ragland, the 41st pick in this year's draft, was thought to have a decent chance to go in the first round, so the Bills were more than happy to trade up to get him. The big question for his IDP value is whether he can stay on the field for third down - his tackling abilities are excellent, but his coverage skills are so-so. With first-rounder Shaq Lawson (shoulder) expected to miss some time in the regular season, the pressure for Ragland to have a key impact as a rookie just went up.

Bills' Shaq Lawson: Looking at missed time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

General manager Doug Whaley seems to think Lawson will miss part of the regular season, BuffaloBills.com reports. "It's too early in the process, but with everything that we thought going into the surgery, it's safe to say he's going to miss some of the early part of the season," Whaley said Tuesday. "Let's clear the air because I know there's a narrative out there. We were aware of the shoulder, but we wanted to take measures to prevent another flareup during the season.

While Bills fans are now a bit ticked at the way both Lawson and Whaley originally scoffed at Mel Kiper's suggestion that the player would need shoulder surgery, the Bills are taking a long-term approach and still feel they got a player that's going to have a key role. Unless Lawson can somehow hit the season running, however, he's simply going to miss too much acclimation time to the new level to be a worthy IDP option out of the gate.
