Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen (knee), who signed his four-year rookie deal on Thursday, is out of organized team activities on Thursday with a knee contusion and will work on the side with the training staff. He won't practice on Friday either, but head coach Doug Marrone said the knee isn't expected to be a big problem moving forward. The No. 7 overall pick suffered the bruised right knee in practice on Tuesday and is being held out as a precaution. Allen is a long, athletic edge rusher that should immediately boost Jacksonville's pass rush in 2019.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones added eight to 10 pounds of lean muscle mass to his upper body in the offseason. He's also fully healthy and a full participant in offseason workouts and practices. Jones led the team in catches (56), receiving touchdowns (seven) and receiving yards (652) last year after a disappointing rookie season in 2017. Five of his scores came in the last five games as he developed more chemistry with rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Jones excelled more in zone coverage last year, but his added strength should help him in man-to-man matchups. The additions of Cole Beasley and John Brown could both help and hurt Jones as he attempts to improve on his 2018 numbers.
The Buffalo Bills signed defensive end Jerry Hughes to a two-year extension on Tuesday worth up to $23 million, according to a source. The deal includes $19.5 million guaranteed. The 30-year-old has only had double-digit sacks once back in his first season in Buffalo in 2013, but he's the heart and soul of the team's pass rush on the defensive line. Hughes had 37 tackles, seven sacks and three forced fumbles in 16 games for the Bills last year. He hasn't missed a game since 2011 with the Colts.
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that tight end Tyler Kroft (foot) suffered a broken foot on the first day of organized team activities on Monday and will need surgery. Kroft is expected to miss three to four months, so he won't be ready for the start of the season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Behind Kroft, Buffalo has rookie Dawson Knox, Lee Smith and Jason Croom on their depth chart. None of those three will be fantasy relevant with Kroft on the shelf.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley (abdomen) isn't practicing in organized team activities after he underwent surgery for a core muscle a few weeks ago, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Center Mitch Morse had the same procedure done and is also sitting out. Beasley should be ready for the regular season and figures to man the slot on a regular basis alongside Zay Jones and John Brown in his first season in Buffalo. The 30-year-old has never been a big fantasy guy, as his best season came in 2016 with Dallas when he caught 75 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns. Beasley will be more of a WR5 in PPR leagues in his new home.
