Bills kick game specialists roughing it

Posted by Chris Brown on December 10, 2009 – 12:47 pm

Anyone that holds to the old football adage that kickers and punters aren’t real football players need only see what Brian Moorman and Rian Lindell did for practice Thursday.

With high wind advisories and blowing and drifting snow whipping through Western New York last night and today, the Bills practiced inside as there was little they would accomplish in 30-40 mph winds and a foot of snow on the ground. But while the offense and defense practiced inside, Moorman and Lindell went with long snapper Garrison Sanborn out to the grass field, which was adrift with snow and driving winds.

Lindell peeked out the door of the Bills fieldhouse and said, “Oh it’s not that bad.”

To which Moorman replied, “Yeah but you don’t have to sit in it.”

Moorman was referring to his duties as Lindell’s holder. Moorman sits down on one leg for field goal holds, which he was going to be doing in the snow.

Special teams coordinator Bobby April accompanied his specialists out in the elements.

The forecast for Kansas City this weekend is cold, but snow is not expected.
