According to Dan Lavoie at Buffalo Rumblings on SB Nation, here is the injury report on the Bills: RB LeSean McCoy, RB Karlos Williams, RB Boobie Dixon, WR Sammy Watkins, WR Robert Woods, WR Percy Harvin, WR Chris Hogan, and CB Leodis McKelvin. It is not very likely for RB Bryce Brown and WR Deonte Thompson, to see any action as well.

Jeff Hartman at Behind The Steel Curtain on SB Nation had this injury report on the Steelers: LT Mike Adams; QB Bruce Gradkowski; C Maurkice Pouncey; ILB Lawrence Timmons; ILB Vince Williams; RB Josh Harris; DE Stephon Tuitt; and CB Senquez Golson.

Our Harv Aronson here at City Of Champions Sports points out that E.J. Manuel is the third quarterback to start for the Bills this preseason. Hey, head coach Rex Ryan, can you say “quarterback controversy?”

Kim Meyer of the Still Curtain, part of the FanSided family, wants to know if the offensive line will be able to rebound with the loss of Maurkice Pouncey at center.

Dave Bryan of the Steelers Depot believes that Darrius Heyward-Bey will be the team’s No. 3 wide receiver with the four-game suspension looming for Martavis Bryant.

Robert Connor at Bleacher Report wants to see how Ronald Darby, the Bills second-round pick from Florida State, handles the Steelers receivers. He had two picks against Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown last week.
