- Bills coach Dick Jauron on the return of WR James Hardy: "We'll take it a little bit slow ... it's not going to be this week (when he plays) and hopefully that doesn't disappoint him, but we think it would be a little bit careless (to activate him so soon). It's just great to see him back."
- Are Dick Jauron (Yale) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (Harvard) kindred spirits with their Ivy League connection? "We have a secret handshake and ... no, I like Ryan," Jauron said with a smile.

- Bills WR James Hardy was thrilled to practice for the first time since last year's ACL injury. "I sort of forgot what it felt like to be out there with 10 other guys," Hardy said. "I can't even explain what the feeling was to be out there and be a part of something again."
- Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on his history: "I was not heavily recruited out of high school. Had one scholarship offer from Eastern Washington, a Big Sky I-AA school. Went to Harvard ... settled on Harvard, I guess," he said with a smile.
