FS Byrd, OLB Torbor Return To Bills Practice

Amidst a busy day finalizing their 53-man roster, the Buffalo Bills got some good news on the injury front on Saturday. Two projected defensive starters, free safety Jairus Byrd and jack linebacker Reggie Torbor, returned to the practice field. BuffaloBills.com reported the news here and here.

Bills head coach Chan Gailey said that there's a chance that both could play in the season opener against the Miami Dolphins, which takes place a week from tomorrow.

Byrd missed the team's final three preseason games after undergoing a minor surgical procedure. Torbor was injured in the Bills' second preseason game against Indianapolis. Should neither player be available for Week 1, George Wilson would spell Byrd at free safety, while Chris Ellis would start at the jack (weak side) linebacker position.

Buffalo has a day off Sunday - a day they'll utilize to tweak their final roster and begin adding players to the practice squad - and will return to practice on Monday. Whether Byrd and Torbor are able to participate then will give us a big clue as to whether they'll be able to play against Miami.
