As one responsible for covering Buffalo Bills news, the last two days alone have felt like a week. Between a bevy of roster moves and injuries, the Buffalo Bills have made no shortage of moves over the past two days, and not much of it has been positive.

The weekend/Monday got off to a start when the Bills lost their most preseason game to the Washington Redskins in a 30-7 rout Saturday. The injury bug also hit the Bills during the loss. Potential starting quarterback Kevin Kolb, who suffered a concussion that is, according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, potentially career-ending. The Bills’ top cornerback, Stephon Gilmore fractured his wrist and is out for 6-8 weeks.

The Bills also lost another starter, right tackle Chris Hairston, for the entire season when they placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list Monday.

In response to Kolb’s injury, the Bills added two veteran quarterbacks to the roster by signing veteran free agent Matt Leinart and acquiring Thaddeus Lewis in a trade with the Detroit Lions in exchange for inside linebacker Chris White.

The Bills also had to make cuts to get their roster down to Tuesday’s 75-man limit. The Bills released five players Monday, most notably wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers.

Here at Buffalo Bills Draft, we brought you full coverage of all of the roster moves and injuries and how they affect the Bills, while we also looked back at the team’s disappointing preseason loss and projected possibilities for the team’s regular-season roster. You can take a look at all of that through the links below.

Are you sick of drafting promising fantasy football teams in the summer, only to have a team failing to live up to its expectations halfway through the season? Do you find yourself consistently wishing you had the opportunity to have another team’s player on your team, even if only for one week? Or possibly most relevant, do you enjoy having the chance to draft a fantasy football team for free, yet have the chance to win up to $1,000 just one week into the season?

If any of those questions apply to you, then you should check out DraftStreet.com.

There’s a new way to play fantasy football that turns the season long grind into quick hitting one-week leagues. The best part is that you can win cash every single week.
