A trio of Buffalo Bills starters missed Thursday’s practice session, including one who left practice Wednesday after a hard fall.
Safety Micah Hyde, offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, and tight end Charles Clay all sat out of practice. The most notable of those names is Hyde, given that he was injured after intercepting a pass in Wednesday’s session. He seemed fine after practice, but missed today in what is likely a precautionary measure. Shamiel Gary filled in for him both days.
Glenn has been recovering from an ankle injury that hampered him for most of last season, and Sean McDermott cited “foot soreness” when saying he would sit. He had spent most of the offseason in a walking boot, but is still dealing with some lingering issues. Seantrel Henderson filled in as the left tackle, although Dion Dawkins got some reps, as well.
Clay’s knee issues are well-documented, and he took his second camp session off after sitting on Sunday as well. While he didn’t miss any games due to injury last year, he rarely practiced during the regular season and had trouble developing chemistry with Tyrod Taylor until the end of the year. Nick O’Leary and Logan Thomas saw extra practice time with the first team in his absence.
Also missing practice today was wide receiver Corey Brown. His absence was not injury-related, however, as Vic Carucci reported that he would miss practice due to illness. Rod Streater worked in and continued to shine in Brown’s place.
