Buffalo Bills Training Camp: Kelvin Sheppard Sitting Out

Buffalo Bills middle linebacker Kelvin Sheppard missed training camp practice on Wednesday night, and head coach Chan Gailey was cryptic in his explanation of Sheppard's absence.

"He may miss a couple of days, we’ll see," Gailey told reporters after practice. "He’s got a situation he’s dealing with. It’s medical and that’s all I’m going to say about that right now."

Gailey often allows his players to divulge the nature of their injuries, but he's rarely as cryptic as "got a situation he's dealing with" and "it's medical" when speaking with reporters. Maybe I'm just gun shy after the Marcus Easley situation a year ago, but things like this always make me nervous. Then again, Gailey did give Sheppard a timeline, while Easley's issue was labeled an "illness." Regardless, keep your eyes squarely on this situation, Bills fans.

Scott McKillop and Chris White split middle linebacker reps on Wednesday with Sheppard sidelined. If, however, this situation were to arise in the regular season, the general belief is that Sheppard would be replaced inside by Kirk Morrison, allowing a player like Arthur Moats or Nigel Bradham to slide into a starting role. Here's to hoping, however, that Sheppard is already on the road to a speedy recovery.
