The Buffalo Bills had their last public training camp practice on Tuesday. This practice was smoother than the fight-filled practice fans saw yesterday. Head Coach Sean McDermott decided to go with a short practice to keep players healthy ahead of the second preseason game against the Eagles on Thursday.
Short, light practice
Coach McDermott held a short and sweet practice at camp, ending after only an hour and fifteen minutes instead of the traditional hour and 45 minutes. Players took it easy on the field, only wearing shoulder pads and helmets, as camp wrapped up. With the second preseason game later in the week, the defense gave a scout team look to the offense to get them ready to play the Eagles.
After Shaq Lawson, Jerry Hughes, Tyrod Taylor and others were involved in altercations yesterday, cooler heads prevailed on the final day at camp. Coach McDermott didn’t mind the fights that took place yesterday because it let him know the game meant something to them. That intensity is what coach thinks it takes to compete and win football games. Personal foul penalties in practice are okay but at the end of the day they will not be tolerated on game day.
That’s a wrap
Today’s practice marked the final public practice at St. John Fisher College for the 2017 season. This season marked the eighteenth year that the college was home to Buffalo Bills training camp. There was a lot of rumors and speculation that training camp would be moving to a different location but Coach McDermott said he looks forward to being at the school next year.
Odds and Ends
Tyrod had one of his best passes at training camp today dropping a ball in the basket of tight end Charles Clay down the numbers with Ramon Humber in tight coverage... Left tackle Cordy Glenn received an injection in his injured left foot today as Coach McDermott hopes that this treatment will “knock out” the issue.... Cornerback Shareece Wright returned to practice today after spraining his right thumb and was running with the first team opposite of Tre’Davious White... Wright was wearing a wrap/cast over his right hand...
