The Buffalo Bills remained relatively healthy as a team throughout three weeks' worth of training camp. With no players out with long-term injuries, the focus shifts to a few key players who are dinged up, as well as some depth players who are trying to make the roster who aren't getting the chance.
Against Minnesota tomorrow, Eric Wood has already been declared out by head coach Chan Gailey. The center has been fully participating in practice, so it seems precautionary at this point, and Gailey said he'd be back for the third pre-season game next week. Right tackle Erik Pears will likely see his first pre-season action this week despite receiving a rest day on Wednesday as he comes back from a groin problem. Tight end Kevin Brock is not expected to suit up, but tackle James Carmon has a shot after getting hurt earlier this week.
Defensively, Gailey said earlier in the week that cornerback Justin Rogers is probably out for this week's game with a hamstring injury. There was no update as camp broke on Wednesday. Also not expected to play are Terrence McGee and defensive tackle Torell Troup - who have been limited throughout camp - as well as safety Joshua Nesbitt.
Kellen Heard, who is fighting for a roster spot with Troup, suffered an injury this week, but worked through it on a limited basis Wednesday. Gailey updated his status after the final camp walk-through, saying, "He made it through practice and he will get better in the next two days. I think he will be able to play."
The Bills face off against the Minnesota Vikings tomorrow night at 8 PM.
