Bills Are Banged Up At Linebacker

The Buffalo Bills employ a total of 13 outside and inside linebackers, and with 2010 training camp barely a weekend old, five of those players have already missed practice time.

WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia is at Monday morning's practice (closed to the public), and reports that Paul Posluszny, Kawika Mitchell, Keith Ellison, Chris Kelsay and Danny Batten are all spectators.

Kelsay and Batten are dealing with shoulder injuries; Batten's arm was in a sling this morning, according to Chris Brown. Mitchell sat out a practice over the weekend as he was rested. Posluszny is dealing with a recent groin injury, while Ellison is still recuperating from a quadriceps injury that ended his 2009 season. Posluszny, however, did some light individual work Monday morning, according to Buscaglia; none of these injuries are considered much more than minor, as well.

Of the eight linebackers practicing, Reggie Torbor and Chris Ellis continue to get first-team reps on the outside, with Aaron Maybin and Antonio Coleman bringing up the rear. Andra Davis is joined in the middle by Ryan Manalac, Arthur Moats and Donovan Woods.
