Bills head coach Chan Gailey was asked about why some young first and second-year players that could have participated in this past weekend’s rookie minicamp did not. Gailey provided some answers.
Asked about LB Nic Harris, Gailey confirmed that he was not 100 percent healthy coming off a late season knee injury that landed him on injured reserve in 2009.
Harris was seen watching the afternoon practice from the sidelines on Saturday. As for when he’ll return to the practice setting Gailey was not sure of Harris’ timeline off the top of his head.
As for James Hardy’s absence, Gailey offered the following.
“He had something he had to take care of,” said Gailey.
Buffalo’s head coach didn’t elaborate, so it wasn’t clear if it was personal matters or something else.
FS Jairus Byrd is also not fully recovered from hip surgery to repair a torn labrum, though he watched practice from the sidelines on Friday.
Gailey did say that the group of players participating in the rookie minicamp came out of it healthy.
