Bills coach Sean McDermott said Monday that he and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier are "still working through" who will call plays moving forward after McDermott took over defensive play-calling from Frazier in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. "Either way, Leslie is going to be a big part of what we're doing," McDermott said. Frazier said the two have collaborated on the defense already and "this really won't be any different."

Davis shocks Bills, quits NFL at halftime

Bills cornerback Vontae Davis abruptly retired at halftime of Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Chargers, saying in a statement that he realized, "I shouldn't be out there anymore." One teammate called the timing "completely disrespectful."

Bills LB Lorenzo Alexander said he was told CB Vontae Davis quit the team and retired at halftime of Sunday's game. "It's completely disrespectful," Alexander said.

Josh Allen showed signs of promise in making a 57-yard completion to Zay Jones and by leading Buffalo on two touchdown drives, but ultimately he was not good enough to overcome a poor defensive effort in his starting debut, a 31-20 loss Sunday to the Chargers. Coach Sean McDermott must face increasing questions about his defense as the Bills travel to play four of their next five games on the road, including next Sunday in Minnesota. The status of LeSean McCoy could be in doubt for that game after he injured his ribs in the second half of Sunday's game, played one snap and later was announced as questionable to return.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Despite returning to the game after walking off with a rib injury in the third quarter, LeSean McCoy was announced midway through the fourth quarter Sunday as being questionable to return with a rib injury. He took one carry after returning but has not taken another.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills RB LeSean McCoy briefly left the field to be examined in the medical tent on the sideline in the third quarter of Sunday's game, but later returned. Bills center Ryan Groy on McCoy's midsection as he was being tackled on a run. McCoy later walked to the sideline under his own power, grabbing at his left rib/stomach area.
