A bout of thunderstorms passed through the Pittsford area earlier on Tuesday afternoon, but the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns persevered, holding their second joint training camp practice at St. John Fisher on Tuesday evening, albeit one that was cut short due to the threat of more storms.
Even the abbreviated practice session could not prevent the injury bug from continuing to gnaw players out of action for the Bills. A potentially (but hopefully not) serious hamstring issue for LeSean McCoy stole the headlines, but several more players missed the practice, with Rex Ryan spending most of his time after practice updating reporters on the health and status of many of his biggest-name players.
Here's the rundown of everything you need to know from camp last night.
Hey, at least Kyle is back

#Bills HC Rex Ryan: LeSean McCoy has a hamstring injury. The hamstring is in tact, not off the bone. We're getting an MRI on it— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) August 18, 2015
#Bills HC Rex Ryan: We don't know if it's a pulled hamstring for McCoy, but we're hoping it's just a strain.— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) August 18, 2015
#Bills HC Rex Ryan: Watkins was a precautionary hold out from tonight's practice. Woods felt tight tonight as well and sat out.— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) August 18, 2015
Rex: Hoping Boobie, Fred, and Bryce can be ready for preseason game three vs PIT— Sal Capaccio (@SalSports) August 18, 2015
Percy Harvin walking with a very heavy limp outside the Bills locker room. Being transported around campus on a cart.— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) August 19, 2015
Rex said Harvin had PRP injection after his hip soreness "didn’t respond" the way the Bills wanted. Wants to return for DET game if not PIT.— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) August 19, 2015
Rex Ryan says Karlos Williams "had a procedure" and will miss at least two weeks.— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) August 18, 2015
When asked about RB Karlos Williams’ procedure, Rex Ryan smiled, called it a "sensitive thing" and later pointed toward his lower abdomen.— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) August 19, 2015
Cordy Glenn and Phil Taylor go at it after play before whistles break it up. Browns tried stripping ball from Hill a bit after the play.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) August 18, 2015
Another small scuffle erupts. Cordy Glenn again involved. Bills, Browns are in 11-on-11 period; ball carriers are going to ground.— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) August 18, 2015
