Aaron Williams update

Posted by Chris Brown on September 25, 2011 – 6:07 pm

It was reported by the Bills media relations staff as a chest injury as rookie CB Aaron Williams was taken off the field on a stretcher in the second half Sunday. Head coach Chan Gailey provided an update on the cornerback’s status.

“He’s getting tests right now,” said Gailey. “I don’t think it’s serious, serious. That’s a bad term but I don’t think it’s something that’s going to keep him from playing the rest of the year.”

If Williams is out for this coming week, Buffalo could have just four healthy cornerbacks on their roster in Florence, McKelvin, Corner and Justin Rogers. They have rookie Doyle Miller and veteran Terrence Wheatley on their practice squad.

Camp honorable mentions

Posted by Chris Brown on August 19, 2011 – 9:23 am

Our sixth annual training camp awards are up on the home page, but there were some other players that largely flew under the radar that we thought should be recognized in our honorable mention section.

CB Leodis McKelvin has not been seen making many plays defending the pass game. That’s because rarely have Buffalo’s quarterbacks thrown to his side of the field, which is an indication of his coverage ability. McKelvin may have had his most consistent camp this summer.

Undrafted rookies are really up against it in terms of trying to make the roster with the finite amount of time available before roster decisions have to be made. But here is a short list of some undrafteds that turned in noticeable plays in camp.

CB Doyle Miller
OLB Robert Eddins
WR Kamar Aiken

Of the three Eddins did the most in the practice setting.

WR Paul Hubbard had a solid camp, making more plays in three weeks than he did in the practice setting all last season. His game has noticeably improved.

CB Reggie Corner was around the ball an awful lot in this camp, perhaps more than any other cornerback on the roster. He didn’t have a lot of picks, but he likely led the secondary in pass breakups in this camp.
