A pair of key contributors in the Buffalo Bills’ Week 4 win made their return to practice on Thursday after being absent the day before as Micah Hyde and Charles Clay stepped back onto the field. Clay reportedly missed Wednesday’s practice because of a death in his family while Hyde was kept out because of an injury to his knee. Hyde was was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, as were defensive end Eddie Yarbrough and cornerback Shareece Wright.
Veteran defenders Lorenzo Alexander and Kyle Williams were also back, after missing Wednesday. The team has revealed that Williams has a thumb injury, but he was a full participant on Thursday, as was Shaq Lawson and Kaelin Clay, who were upgraded from a limited participants at Wednesday’s practice.
The only Bills who did not practice Thursday were, unsurprisingly, Jordan Matthews and Ramon Humber, both which are expected to miss a month.
A surprising face made an appearance on Thursday. Offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson, who is currently serving a 10-game suspension dating back to last season, was spotted working with the team’s trainers. Per WGR550’s Sal Capaccio, the NFL permits players to be at a team’s facility and workout if they are not suspended for performance-enhancing drugs or other violations; Henderson’s suspension reportedly involved his use of marijuana, which is considered a volition of the league’s policy and program for substances of abuse. Henderson is eligible to return to the Bills next week.
