| Karlos Williams, McCoy miss practice Thu.|
Anthony Dixon likely to start
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 8, 12:15 pm
|All signs continue to point to Boobie Dixon being the Buffalo Bills' starting running back Sunday in Tennessee. Granted, Cierre Wood or Dan "Boom" Herron could also be mixed in. But rookie Karlos Williams (concussion) and LeSean McCoy (hamstring) were not at Thursday's practice. (The Buffalo News)|
FFToday's Take: If Williams can't get cleared by this weekend, Anthony Dixon would get the start with Cierre Wood filling a backup role. Dixon is more of a RB/FB hybrid and lacks big play ability but can be in the RB2 discussion this week against the Titans based on volume.

|Rex Ryan says Boobie Dixon is the No. 1 RB if McCoy/Williams cannot play but adds "hopefully we'll have one of those guys (vs Titans)." (Tyler Dunne on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Karlos Williams along with Sammy Watkins (calf) and LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. There's still hope that Williams will be cleared before Sunday but if he isn't, Anthony Dixon would get the start and be on the RB2 radar against the Titans.

Nine-year career in Buffalo comes to an end
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 31, 9:00 am
|The Buffalo Bills released Fred Jackson on Monday, ending the veteran running back's nine-year career with the team. "Today, we had to make the difficult decision to release Fred Jackson," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said in a statement. "He had an incredible career for this organization for the past 10 years. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The 34-year-old running back missed a couple weeks of camp with hamstring injury but played well in Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers. The Bills still have plenty of running back depth including LeSean McCoy (hamstring) Bryce Brown (hamstring), Anthony Dixon (calf) and rookie Karlos Williams. A few teams are in need of running back help including Dallas and Tennessee.

MRI on Wednesday

FFToday's Take: The Bills are decimated at the running back position with injuries. McCoy (hamstring) joins Fred Jackson (hamstring), Anthony Dixon (calf), Bryce Brown (hamstring) and rookie Karlos Williams (undisclosed) in the trainers room. None are expected to play on Thursday.

Out multiple weeks

|Buffalo Bills running back Anthony Dixon suffered a calf injury in Monday night's practice which coach Rex Ryan called "substantial." Ryan expects Dixon to be out multiple weeks. (Buffalo News)|
FFToday's Take: Dixon may struggle to make the final roster if he's out for an extended period of time. The team has Fred Jackson, Bryce Brown and Karlos Williams behind LeSean McCoy. Dixon's injury opens the door for Brown to see more reps in training camp.
