A quick look around the AFC:
- The Bills will be without injured Pro Bowl defensive linemen Mario Williams and Kyle Williams in Kansas City on Sunday, and The Buffalo News’ Tyler Dunne wonders (on Twitter) whether the team will part with them in the offseason. If the Bills cut both after the season, they’ll save $17.9MM on their salary cap in 2016 ($12.9MM for Mario Williams, $5MM for Kyle Williams).
- Jets receiver Devin Smith, a second-round pick in last year’s draft, has put up a disappointing rookie season in terms of production. Smith has just seven catches in as many games and has had issues with drops, but offensive coordinator Chan Gailey isn’t worried. “We’ve got to keep letting him have the opportunity,” Gailey said, according to The Associated Press. “I think he just needs to get his confidence back. I haven’t lost confidence in him. I’ve just got to make sure that he keeps confidence in himself.”
- The Titans could promote linebacker Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil from their practice squad sometime this weekend, interim head coach Mike Mularkey said (Twitter link via Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com). Cudjoe-Virgil signed with the Titans in the spring as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland.
