Several member of the Buffalo Bills were on the shelf for Wednesday's practice as the team begins their preparation for the Tennessee Titans. It wasn't all bad news as several long-term injured players returned to the field.
The headliner was Kyle Williams, who sat on both Wednesday and Thursday a week ago. Despite an ankle injury, Williams was very active against the Arizona Cardinals so this move is likely precautionary. Also on the sideline was cornerback Terrence McGee, who is still working his way to 100% but it's fair to wonder if he ever will. Safety Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) and defensive end Mark Anderson (knee) also did not practice.
On the positive side, the Bills got cornerback Ron Brooks back. Brooks, Buffalo's fourth round pick in 2012, hurt his foot in training camp and was placed on Injured Reserve after having foot surgery on September 1st. He was designated to return and this was the earliest he could practice.He can't be placed back on the active roster until October 31st.
Also returning to practice were offensive guard Kraig Urbik and defensive tackle Spencer Johnson. Both were limited but have a chance to play against the Titans. Defensive end Shawne Merriman also practiced for the first time since being re-signed on Monday.
