  • Bills' Terrel Bernard: Set to compete for starting role

    Bills general manager Brandon Beane mentioned Bernard by name Tuesday when discussing possible replacements for the vacant starting middle linebacker job following the departure of long-time starter Tremaine Edmunds in free agency, Maddy Glab of the team's official site reports.

    That said, there are several other players in the mix for starting roles alongside standout outside linebacker Matt Milano, including Tyrel Dodson, Baylon Spector, A.J. Klein and anyone else the Bills might bring in via free agency or the 2023 NFL Draft. Bernard was mostly a special-teams contributor during his rookie season as a third-round pick out of Baylor and totaled 22 tackles on the season, but he'll at least have a chance to compete for more work and perhaps even a starting role in 2023.

  • Bills' Terrel Bernard: Starting opportunity awaits

    Bernard is expected to serve as one of the Bills' starting linebackers in Sunday's game against the Jets with Matt Milano (oblique) listed as questionable but considered unlikely to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bernard, a third-round rookie out of Baylor, has played just 45 snaps on defense through seven games this season, with more than half of them (25) coming in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Steelers. Assuming Milano is inactive this week, Bernard should take on his largest snap share to date, but the rookie can't be counted on to be as reliable of an option in IDP leagues as the veteran has been when healthy, as he may not see the field in every single formation that Milano normally would.

  • Bills' Terrel Bernard: Roster status appears secure

    Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News surmises that Bernard is one of three Bills linebackers who has a lock on a roster spot.

    Bernard, a third-round rookie out of Baylor, actually has a chance of starting alongside stalwarts Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, though the Bills play a number of different packages and Bernard could be subbed out for an extra defensive back or a pass rusher on occasion. Still, the future appears bright for Bernard, who scored on a fumble recovery in his first game as a pro Saturday while adding three tackles in an all-around nice debut.

  • Bills' Terrel Bernard: Heading to Buffalo

    The Bills selected Bernard in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 89th overall.

    Bernard is the second player drafted off the Baylor defense in the third round. A linebacker, Bernard had two seasons with over 100 tackles in Waco and was on pace for three if not for an injury-shortened 2020. He ran a 4.59 40-yard dash at his pro day and had impressive jumps at the combine. Light for a linebacker at 218 pounds, Bernard will likely have to add bulk to play a reliable amount of snaps. That said, Bernard's speed and tackle production in college suggest that he could have success at the next level.
