The Buffalo Bills are set to kick off their first practice of 2008 Training Camp in just a few moments, sans OT Jason Peters and top draft pick CB Leodis McKelvin. McKelvin is expected to be signed relatively soon - perhaps even soon enough to get him onto the field for this afternoon's practice, which starts at 2:15 PM - but there will be no such luck for Peters.
If you're headed to training camp today, we'd love to hear from you later on this afternoon if you feel up to it. Be sure to check out the official site's coverage, and if you're traveling today, WGR 550 should have top-notch coverage as well. Use this open thread to report any developments or discuss what you see/hear on the field as the Bills strap on the pads for the first time.
Update #3: BuffaloBills.com has posted its practice report from this morning's inaugural practice. Check it out; we'll break it down in-depth later on this afternoon.
Update #2: It's been revealed that Kyle Williams was excused from today's practice so that he could be present for the birth of his second child. Now that's a good reason to miss camp. I believe that congrats are in order to Kyle and his family. Good news indeed!
Update #1: Peters, McKelvin and DT Kyle Williams are not present for the morning session, according to Chris Brown. No word on why Williams is absent to this point.
