The Buffalo Bills returned to the practice field at St. John Fisher College on Monday, three days after dropping their pre-season opener 42-17 in Washington. While the injury news isn't great on all fronts - Fred Jackson had a cast on his left hand, while Marshawn Lynch had his ankle wrapped - the Bills did get some veterans back this morning.
Cornell Green, the starting right tackle that missed a few days of practice last week and didn't play in D.C., was back on the field, though he did not participate in 11-on-11 drills. Neither did Demetrius Bell, the starting left tackle who has been practicing, but did not play in Washington. Starting right guard Eric Wood participated fully.
Also returning to practice Monday were defensive tackle Spencer Johnson, tight end Derek Schouman and guard Andre Ramsey.
Paul Posluszny also continues to progress, as he took part in 11-on-11 drills for the first time since training camp opened on July 29. With Buffalo now employing just six inside linebackers, it was apparent that Posluszny and Keith Ellison were close to returning to the lineup, though it's not clear if either will play against Indianapolis on Thursday.
Joining Jackson and Lynch on the sidelines on Monday morning were James Hardy, Ed Wang, Marcus Stroud, Alex Carrington and Danny Batten. Marcus Easley was not in attendance. Buffalo has an open practice (ticket required) tonight at 7:15 PM.
