Reports Indicate Bills Training Camp Could Open Friday

Joe Buscaglia is the main writer for the Buffalo Bills beat on WGR's website. This morning he penned a brief article, outlining when team training camps were likely to begin, based on various reports about the post-NFL lockout timeline.

Buffalo's first pre-season game is scheduled to take place in Chicago against the Bears on August 13. That's the third night of pre-season games, with five games each on the 11th and 12th. Training camps will be open beginning on Wednesday the 27th, and the teams playing on the first night of games will open camp that day. It therefore stands to reason that the Bills, playing on the third night of the pre-season, will open camp on the third day.

While the team hasn't listed any training camp practice sessions, the format is to be the same. Fans will be ride buses from team-designated parking areas around the area of St. John Fisher College. When you arrive, you will be dropped off as normal and pass through the gift shop on your way into the stadium.

The only major change to training camp, besides the ability to get advance tickets for the night practices, is that Fisher's new track complex has removed one of the two grass practice fields but added approximately 1,000 seats for fans viewing practice. CEO Russ Brandon said the team will practice on the grass as much as possible, and will not send half the team to the turf of Growney Stadium.
