Bills training camp: Marcell Dareus recovering from "viral sickness"

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

Turns out that Marcell Dareus was missing reps at the start of Bills training camp because he was fighting a viral sickness. Whew.

For the better part of four days now, we have been wondering why Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus has been limited in the amount of individual team work he's been allowed to do during training camp practices. Dareus confirmed he wasn't injured earlier in the week, and head coach Doug Marrone praised his conditioning and effort on Tuesday. So what gives?

As it turns out, Dareus was battling a viral sickness when training camp started, according to WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia.

Over the last couple of days, Dareus has been more involved in team work, though players like Jay Ross, Alan Branch and even Torell Troup have snuck in for first-team reps on occasion. One would think that as Dareus gets healthier, he'll start to do even more work in the practice setting. For now, we can simply breathe a sigh of relief: No. 99 appears to be on track for his usual starting job, at least.
