  • Leonard Fournette: Could be called up soon

    Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that calling Fournette up from the practice squad will be a "big-time consideration" in the weeks ahead, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    While McDermott didn't rule out the possibility of it happening for Sunday's game against the Jets, it sounds more likely to occur later in the season, with the coach noting Friday that Fournette is still learning the offense. The Bills primarily have used James Cook and Latavius Murray in the backfield this year, with Damien Harris occupying a small role Weeks 1 through 6 before he suffered a neck injury and concussion. Harris now has missed the minimum of four games on injured reserve, but there haven't been updates on his progress, nor has he been designated to return and made eligible to practice.

  • Leonard Fournette: Joins Buffalo's practice squad

    Fournette signed with the Bills' practice squad after passing his physical Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Bills will see how Fournette fares during his first week of practice with the team, but if he picks up the playbook quickly and impresses during his time on the field, he could be elevated from the practice squad or even signed to the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals. Though he served as a lead back in each of his first six NFL seasons split between Jacksonville and Tampa Bay, Fournette will likely be primarily competing with Latavius Murray for the No. 2 role behind James Cook while Damien Harris (concussion) is on injured reserve. Fournette brings superior pass-catching skills to the table, but Murray historically has been a tougher runner between the tackles. However, Murray is averaging just 3.6 yards per carry on 40 totes this season, so the 28-year-old Fournette could have an opening to steal work from him on early downs as well as passing downs.

  • Leonard Fournette: Set to join Buffalo

    Fournette said that he plans to sign with the Bills on Monday, pending a physical, Jordan Schultz of reports.

    The terms of Fournette's contract aren't known, and he could initially land on the Bills' practice squad rather than the 53-man roster. Regardless, Fournette could be ready to make his Bills debut Week 9 against the Bengals, as the team is need of additional depth behind top back James Cook while Damien Harris (concussion) is on injured reserve. A popular check-down target in Tampa Bay for Tom Brady last season, Fournette set career highs in receptions (73), receiving yards (523) and receiving touchdowns (three), but he saw a steep decline in efficiency on the ground, averaging just 3.5 yards on 189 carries. Once he gets acclimated in Buffalo, Fournette could challenge Latavius Murray for the top backup role behind Cook.
