While they recharged and relaxed, a number of Bills players stayed connected to football during the Bye Week.
C Eric Wood and LB Preston Brown both returned to their alma mater, Louisville, to watch the Cardinals take on the FSU Seminoles. The Seminoles won, but at least Wood got a great selfie during the Thursday night game.
At least Red Lightning let me get a pic with him tonight… pic.twitter.com/xvNhi2EG1T

Duke Williams’ alma mater had better luck than Wood and Brown’s, as Nevada beat SDSU while Williams was an honorary captain at the game.

RB Boobie Dixon returned to Terry High School in Raymond, Mississippi, where his number was retired. In an instagram post, he said, “Words can’t describe the feeling, so much blood sweat and tears put into it.”

WR Sammy Watkins also attended a game at his high school, South Fort Myers, in Florida.
Though not football-related, RB Fred Jackson stayed connected to sports while attending a women’s college basketball game with major national attention over the weekend. As an advocate for Division III athletes, Jackson attended the Mount Saint Joseph women’s basketball game in Cincinnati which was moved up a month so that Lauren Hill, a freshman with inoperable brain cancer, could live out her dream of playing college ball. Read more on Jackson’s support for Hill here.
