The Buffalo Bills are coming off of a busy week at Bills Drive in Orchard Park, N.Y., as training camp continued to roll along while the Bills also played their first home game of the preseason versus the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. The Bills are now halfway through this year’s preseason, and less than three full weeks away from their regular-season opener versus the New England Patriots.
Over the course of the past week here at Buffalo Bills Draft, we’ve had reports from people on the scene at both training camp and the Bills’ clash with the Vikings, along with full coverage of all the latest Bills news, including a major shift in the quarterback competition. Here’s a look at back at what Buffalo Bills Draft’s best have had to say in the past week.

- EJ Manuel is out for the rest of the preseason following a minor knee procedure. What does that mean for the Buffalo Bills? Ryan Talbot takes a closer look.

Reviewing Bills vs. Vikings
- Joe Marino graded each positional unit on the Bills’ roster for their performance in Friday’s game versus the Vikings.

Live from Training Camp
