Draft Scout Kraig Urbik News
12/18/12 - RG Kraig Urbik signed a contract extension with the Buffalo Bills. Terms were not disclosed.
Claimed off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010, Urbik has started 26 of 34 games for the Bills.
The Steelers originally selected him as a third-round pick out of Wisconsin in 2009.
12/13/12 - RG Kraig Urbik is dealing with a sore knee heading into Sunday's Seattle game. Center and right tackle for the Bills feature first-time NFL starters and so a less-than-healthy Urbik compounds problems on that side of the line.
12/04/12 - RG Kraig Urbik will probably move to center to replace injured starter Eric Wood, with undrafted rookie free agent David Snow moving to right guard.
11/28/12 - RG Kraig Urbik was limited with a knee issue but he is expected to start Sunday at home against Jacksonville. The team's depth is already being challenged on the right side of the line.
11/07/12 - RG Kraig Urbik, coming off a high-ankle sprain that forced him to miss three games, came out of the Houston loss in OK shape but he's sore. He was limited in practice Thursday but should be OK for Sunday's game at New England. He played all the snaps against the Texas.
