The Buffalo Bills are back on the practice field at St. John Fisher College this weekend in what will be their last public training camp appearance prior to Sunday's preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts. To those fans brave enough to brave the PGA Championship traffic in Pittsford in order to watch a football practice, we commend you.
As expected, veteran quarterback Kevin Kolb - who hasn't practiced since last Saturday due first to a knee injury, and then to an excused absence - is back in action this evening.

Tonight's practice is not expected to be a particularly strenuous one, what with the upcoming live-action game (and not to mention yesterday's bout of vomiting). As you can see above, the players are in shorts tonight. Even so, we'll be collecting observations from camp observers in this thread, and will recap the session a bit later on this evening.
