Buffalo Bills Training Camp: Week 5 Stock Report

What a weekend it was for the Buffalo Bills.

First, the team laid an egg in what was supposed to be the most regular-season-like preseason game. The Bills took a 24-0 deficit to halftime and ended up falling to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-14.

The starting offense did manage to finally score a touchdown, but that was in the second half against Bucs backups. The first-team O looked completely lost in the first half, and it led to the team being booed off the field as it headed for the locker room.

Heading into the game, it was a surprise to find Alan Branch on the inactive list for the Bills. Per Matthew Fairburn's report on Syracuse.com, Branch hadn't been out of practice during the week for any injuries.

But after the game, the situation became clearer. Per The Associated Press via NFL.com, Branch was arrested the night before the game for drunken driving. But he didn't just forget to signal and end up pulled over by the cops. No, the police found Branch vomiting out of his car door, and Branch promptly blew a .14 BAC, which is above the legal limit of .08.

Not surprisingly, the Bills cut Branch on Sunday.

After telling Branch to take a hike, the Bills are one step closer to finalizing their 53-man roster. Let's take a look at a few players whose stock is on the rise as well as some who still have work to do to make the cut.
