Sans injured quarterback EJ Manuel, the Buffalo Bills are back on the practice field at St. John Fisher College this morning, where they are scheduled to wrap up 2013 training camp this Wednesday. Today's practice is the first of three remaining (public) camp practices this week.
With Manuel out for the remainder of the preseason with a knee injury, Kevin Kolb will work with the first-team offense in practice, and has already been named the starter for Saturday's preseason game against the Washington Redskins. The news isn't all bad on the injury front, however, as it appears that T.J. Graham and Kiko Alonso will both be back on the field this morning:

As always, we'll continue to collect observations from those at camp in this thread - and there's sure to be news when head coach Doug Marrone addresses reporters after practice.

No team reps for T.J. Graham, Mario Williams or Kiko Alonso during first part of 11-on-11s. Stevie Johnson did take a few reps. #Bills— Jay Skurski (@JaySkurski) August 18, 2013
The hamstring doesn't look to be bothering Stevie #billsmafia https://t.co/izMW4hjgLK— Scott Brooks (@Scotty_Brooks) August 18, 2013
