Practice update

Posted by Chris Brown on September 30, 2010 – 12:57 pm

Three starting defenders are not practicing for the Bills.

The new addition is CB Terrence McGee, who was not seen anywhere on the field during the portion of practice in which the media is permitted to watch. We’ll check with Chan Gailey after practice to see if McGee has been officially added to the injury report or if he has an excused absence.

DE Marcus Stroud (ankle) and ILB Andra Davis (shoulder) are not practicing for a second straight day, lessening their chances of playing on Sunday. If Stroud is not available on Sunday it greatly increases the chances of Alex Carrington making his NFL debut against the Jets. The rookie third-round pick has been inactive for the first three games this season.

Another development in relation to Davis is LB Reggie Torbor is working at inside linebacker alongside Keith Ellison. With Davis out of the lineup, it was initially thought that Akin Ayodele would step in, but Torbor, who played ILB for defensive coordinator George Edwards in Miami the past two years, appears to be the one that would fill the void inside if Davis can’t go.

Torbor has been playing the weak outside linebacker position since he signed with Buffalo back in May, but he has familiarity with the ILB position from his time in the 3-4 system.

Terrell Owens is the only absentee here on Friday as some players on Buffalo’s injury report are back practicing.

The team is practicing in the stadium and OT Jonathan Scott looks to be full go as he practices for the first time this week coming off his eye injury suffered last Sunday.

Jamon Meredith, Justin Jenkins and Jairus Byrd have all been limited in practice this week, but all three are again participating here on Friday.

Practice is inside and out

Posted by Chris Brown on December 16, 2009 – 12:11 pm

In an effort to have the players ready for the elements interim head coach Perry Fewell has his players spending portions of practice inside the Fieldhouse with all the doors open to let in the freezing cold air, and outside on the team’s grass field.

The players spending time outside were the receivers, backs, tight ends and quarterbacks, the players who will be most affected by the weather in terms of executing plays on Sunday. It’s a windy day here in Buffalo with a forecast high of 20. The real feel is about 10.

It’s good to see the players having to adjust to the elements. Hopefully it pays off on Sunday when the forecast high is 27 with 12-15 mph winds and a 40 percent chance of snow.
