All but two of the 90 players currently with the Buffalo Bills were present and accounted for as the team convened for the start of its voluntary Organized Team Activities on Tuesday. Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 reports that the only two players not in the building were rookie safety Delano Howell - who is completing college course work at Stanford - and veteran pass rusher Shawne Merriman, who is currently seeking clearance from his doctor to participate, according to head coach Chan Gailey.

The team and several reporters were tweeting live from the first practice this afternoon; the notes that follow are an amalgamation of tweets from @BuffaloBills (the team's official Twitter feed), @JoeB_WGR (Buscaglia), @gggaughan (Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News) and @ChrisBrownBills (Chris Brown, the Bills' lead journalist).
