"I learned some things while I was out here this week as well," Spiller said. "How to get prepared for the season, prepared for games, different things like that. So it was a help that way too."
When I saw C.J. Spiller's pathetic stat line (one rush for -2 yards and four catches for 25), my first thought was he got injured. I just assumed he would run wild with the no tackling rule. None of the Bills that played in the game sustained injuries, and that's a good thing.
"I don't even know what the emotion is," Reed says. "You can't even describe it. It's like you get up (almost) to the top of Mt. Everest at 29,000 feet: you get to 28,500, and then you turn around and go back."
