His Friday performance aside, we know who and what Peterman is as a quarterback. He’s not good. That said,...

Ex-Browns receiver unhappy with ‘Hard Knocks’ portrayal

Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman thinks he was the victim of some manipulative editing when featured on “Hard Knocks.”Coleman was a brief focus of the HBO show, which depicted him as someone prone to mental errors and giving less than max effort, earning him the constant ire of offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Coleman ended up practicing with the second string before ultimately challenging the Browns to trade him, which they did, sending him to the Buffalo Bills.After...

Kyle Williams didn’t tear ACL, per report

Good news, at least initially.

Most Buffalo Bills fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Kyle Williams didn’t tear his ACL on Friday night, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, when he was rolled up on from behind in the middle of a scrum stopping a running back. He was walking around in a brace following the game. Whatever injury Williams did sustain, it likely won’t keep him out for the entire season.

Marcus Murphy continues to shine in preseason

Murphy has excelled as a runner and in special teams, which should cement his spot on the 53-man roster.

Veteran Chris Ivory was brought in on a free-agent contract to serve as the primary backup to Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy, but through the first two preseason games, Marcus Murphy has staked his claim not only to a spot on the 53-man roster, but as the primary backup to Shady.

Especially following Friday night’s 19-17 win over the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium, when Murphy not...
