AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots


Bills RB LeSean McCoy told reporters on Friday that he’s happy in Buffalo and appreciates the support he’s received from the organization.

“I’m happy here,” McCoy said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN. “I think sometimes people get that mixed up with the frustration of losing. But for me to be in their plans, I like the way that sounds. If not, he would’ve traded me. I had a lot of value and a lot of teams wanted me. … This team has been great to me. Been good to me since I’ve got here. Very supportive to me, in and out. I’m a loyal person. I’ve been grateful.”



Jets S Jamal Adams tells Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that he would “love to be a Jet for life” and finish his career in New York.

I would love to be a Jet for life… and finish my career here,” Adams said. “God willing, that’s definitely the plan…. That would be a dream come true. There’s not that many guys that have played this game who have stuck with one team. That would be an honor. I would love to.

  • Ian Rapoport mentions that it’s possible the Jets could carry Webb on their active roster for the remainder of the season, as exposing him to waivers could lead to another team claiming him.
  • Jets HC Todd Bowles said Friday that while QB Sam Darnold (foot) hasn’t practiced all week, it’s still “possible” he could dress as their backup quarterback. (Rich Cimini)
  • The New York Jets officially ruled out TE Neal Sterling (concussion) for Sunday’s game against the Bills and list WR Robby Anderson (ankle), QB Sam Darnold (foot), and C Spencer Long (knee, finger) as doubtful. Jets DT Steve McLendon (ankle) is also questionable.


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski admitted that it’s been challenging to deal with back and ankle injuries this season, but he’s staying positive and thinks things will turn around once he’s healthy.

“It’s been more challenging, just little obstacles in the way. It’s life. You have to take them on. That’s what I’m doing,” Gronkowski said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “Just got to get back to where I need to be and just be myself when I get back, and it will all be good.

  • Doug Kyed of NESN writes that the Patriots using a first-round restricted tender on WR Josh Gordon next year makes the most sense. This would cost them less than $5 million for the 2019 season.
  • Patriots HC Bill Belichick said they could possibly try to use Obi Melifonwu at a position other than safety. (Doug Kyed)
  • The New England Patriots officially list T Trenton Brown (illness), TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back), LB Dont’a Hightower (knee), TE Jacob Hollister (hamstring), G Shaq Mason (calf), and RB Sony Michel (knee) as questionable for Week 10’s game.
