QUOTE FOR THE DAY
LB Shawne Merriman on how he feels about being ready for Sept. 11  — “I’m fully confident.  I expected some of these things to happen from not being back in so long.  Just getting back into these football positions and motions you’re going have some things that get a little tight and sore over the course of time.  I just have to take care of it.”

PHOTOS OF THE DAY

The Bills practiced on the new playing surface in Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first time on Thursday.


The new community ticket banners are hanging in the stadium.  If a player purchases 20 or more season tickets for use in the Community ticket program, they get a banner to hang in the stadium.
