Bills Tuesday Tidbits

News and notes on the Buffalo Bills.

--CB Nate Clements has recorded an interception in three straight games dating to last season. Kurt Schulz (in 1995) was the last Bill to have the same streak.
   --OF Mike Williams was given a game ball for a number of pancake blocks against New England and for playing two plays at defensive tackle during a successful goal-line stand. "He did a good job of being able to knock people to the ground," coach Gregg Williams said. "Offensive linemen don't always get those shots in NFL ballgames where they put a lot of people on the ground, but he did."
   --P Brian Moorman set a franchise record with a 56.5-yard average on four punts against New England, breaking the mark of 55.14 yards set by Paul Maguire in 1969. Moorman's career average jumped to 42.17 yards, topping Maguire (42.15) on the Bills' all-time list. Moorman had punts of 71 and 64 yards Sunday, and had an impressive net average (after returns) of 46.8. Bills coaches knew Moorman did well but gave him a game ball after realizing just how good a game he had.
   --QB Brian Doman, who lost his job as San Francisco's No. 3 quarterback to Ken Dorsey, was signed to the practice squad, replacing Jason Johnson who was released. Doman started at BYU as a senior and his 1.9 interception percentage is second-lowest in school history behind Jim McMahon's 1.7. The Bills mostly like his mobility, and the fact he could improvise if sent into the game on short notice. For now, the Bills remain with two quarterbacks on the active roster (Drew Bledsoe and Alex Van Pelt).
   --QB Jason Johnson was cut from the practice squad to make room for Brian Doman. Johnson was signed three times by the Bills and cut three times.
   --LB Mario Haggan, a seventh-round pick who was cut last week to make room for SS Lawyer Milloy, has been added to the practice squad. S Jerton Evans was cut to make room.
