Bills rookie CB Taron Johnson said Sunday that Browns WR Jarvis Landry apologized to him after a block during Friday's game that injured Johnson. "I feel like I should have triggered faster," Johnson said. "I just got to be more aggressive on that play, that's the main thing. It's still football, at the end of the day. Stuff like that happens sometimes. I have no animosity toward him at all."

After Corey Coleman did not play in the Bills' preseason opener after being acquired from the Browns, Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday he will play Friday in Cleveland. "We're getting to the point now where it's, ‘Hey, here's the playbook, you got to know it.' Right now we're still digesting. ... There will be some clarity around what his role is Friday night. Biggest thing is we want him to come out and play fast and play physical."

Tuesday's episode of "Hard Knocks" showed former Browns receiver Corey Coleman confronting Hue Jackson in his office about playing time and then, with his voice cracking, asking to be traded. Bills coach Sean McDermott, asked Wednesday if he was aware of that exchange when the Bills traded a seventh-round pick in 2020 for Coleman, said, "Not just in this situation, we gather as much information as we can, and [GM] Brandon [Beane] and his staff do a really good job of that. In this case, I can't honestly — I don't tune into that, I'm focused on our team, quite honestly — but we're aware of a lot of things."

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday of Tyrod Taylor, who will face his former team Friday in Cleveland, "I can just tell you that I have a ton of respect for Tyrod. We certainly shared some moments last year together and he was instrumental in us making the playoffs. I got a ton of respect for his family, how hard the young man works and the great intangibles that he holds and possesses. I wish him nothing but the best for us — certainly we've moved forward, and I know he has as well — and I wish him nothing but the best."
