The Buffalo Bills will soon be joining this weekend's 2014 Hall of Fame festivities in Canton, Ohio, but first, they have to complete tonight's training camp practice at St. John Fisher in Pittsford. It's their eleventh practice in 13 days, and their ninth straight in pads.
There are scattered showers and a bit of thunder and lightning in the area this otherwise fine Friday evening, so the team will begin their practice indoors, and then head outdoors for some of the practice. If the lightning holds off, however, the Bills may weather the rain; they could also play it cautiously to stay as healthy as possible for Sunday night's preseason opener against the New York Giants.
If the Bills do end up practicing tonight, reporters on hand will be updating their Twitter feeds from the sidelines, and those will show up below, live, during the session. After the practice is over, we'll pull out some of the more important tweets from the evening and add them to this post.
Coach Marrone: #Bills will begin practice inside due to lightning in the area. Hoping to end up outside after it passes.— Buffalo Bills (@buffalobills) August 1, 2014

Offense looking sluggish as it closes out week. 2 min drills end in sack and INT. Then back-to-back drops by 14 and 10 in end zone— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) August 2, 2014
Marquise Goodwin has a hamstring injury.— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) August 2, 2014
