Bills vs. Browns: stock up/stock down The Buffalo Bills continued their 2018 preseason slate Friday night against the Cleveland Browns Authentic Marcus Murphy Jersey , coming out with a 19-17 victory. It was largely a down performance for the Bills starters, though the second string was able to dominate on both sides of the ball. Here are some of the players that helped themselves and some that failed to impress.Stock Up: QB Josh AllenThanks to both his positive play and the collarbone injury suffered by AJ McCarron, Allen has never been closer to being declared the team’s starting quarterback. Allen’s stat line, going 9-of-13 for 60 yards and a touchdown, belies how much his very presence seemed to re-energize the team. Before Allen entered the game, the offense had not earned a first down. The rookie marched the offense down the field and scored on his first possession. It’ll be hard for head coach Sean McDermott to keep Allen from starting after more performances like this.Stock Down: C Russell BodineIn a competition with Ryan Groy for the starting center job, Bodine’s effort on Friday won’t help his chances of winning. Bodine was absolutely dominated by Browns starter Larry Ogunjobi in both phases, leading to blown up runs and pressure on quarterback AJ McCarron. A miscommunication late in the first quarter between Bodine and Vlad Ducasse resulted in a McCarron sack. It may be time for the Bills to declare Groy as the starting center.Stock Up: RB Marcus MurphyMurphy continued against the Browns right where he left against the Panthers last week. The beneficiary of some good run blocking up front, he had four rushes for 39 yards. Important for his chances of making the team White Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , Murphy demonstrated strong play on special teams. He had several positive punt returns, one of which went for 39 yards. At this point, it would be a huge surprise if Murphy doesn’t make the final roster.Stock Down: OT Dion DawkinsThe Bills traded longtime left tackle Cordy Glenn because they had faith that Dawkins could lock down the blind side. While his rookie season was impressive, Dawkins uncharacteristically struggled last night against former number 1 draft pick Myles Garrett. Garrett’s speed and strength around the edge was just too much for the young player, who will quickly need to forget this poor performance and move on to next week.Stock Up: Taron JohnsonA surprise starter at nickel corner, Johnson’s effort and speed in tackling against the run in the first quarter was admirable. His coverage was solid as well, as evidenced by a third down play late in the first quarter when he successfully dropped into zone coverage against Jarvis Landry, forcing a throwaway from Tyrod Taylor. If Johnson can continue to emerge in the coming weeks, the coaches may be forced to declare him the starting nickel over veteran Phillip Gaines.Buffalo Bills injury report: Trent Murphy White Jordan Mills Jersey , Kyle Williams practicing on Wednesday Buffalo Bills defensive linemen Trent Murphy (groin) and Kyle Williams (knee) have returned to team practices, which is an important step to seeing them on the field against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that among the latest injury news for Buffalo’s roster on Wednesday morning.Every week during the regular season, the Bills must publish an injury report showing which players are hurt, and whether they were Full Participants, Limited Participants, or Did Not Practice from Wednesday through Friday. At the end of the week, the Bills also publish a report designating each player as either Questionable (could play), Doubtful (very unlikely to play), or Out (won’t play). (There used to be a Probable designation for players who were very likely to play Youth LeSean McCoy Jersey , but that was removed last year.)If Murphy and Williams continue practicing during the week, they’ll be favored to play in Buffalo’s defensive line rotation this weekend.McDermott also mentioned that receiver Ray-Ray McCloud (knee) will not practice today, and linebacker Julian Stanford (nose) will be a limited participant.When asked about receiver Zay Jones, who missed a large swath of training camp recovering from offseason surgery, McDermott noted that Jones “is ready to go.”
