The Buffalo Bills are getting healthier, and two second round picks are back into full participation at practice. In a media session on Thursday, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that linebacker Reggie Ragland (torn ACL) and wide receiver Zay Jones (knee sprain) were both full participants in the day’s practice. This is a big step for Ragland, who missed his entire rookie season after an unfortunate training camp injury. It’s also nice to see Jones returning to the field before the end of Organized Team Activities after missing three weeks with a knee sprain.
The other big news on the injury front involves receiver Sammy Watkins. McDermott announced that Watkins has returned to practice, working on individual drills since Tuesday. After an injury-plagued third season, Watkins has a lot to prove in order to earn a contract extension with the Bills.
Beyond the headliners, McDermott mentioned a few more players. Offensive tackle Cordy Glenn is week to week as he recovers from an ankle injury, and tackle Seantrel Henderson is dealing with a cyst.
