For the second straight practice, Mitch Morse will not be participating at Buffalo Bills training camp, according to multiple reports. Instead he is working to the side with trainers for the second straight practice.
Jon Scott of Spectrum News said the team’s PR staff wasn’t aware of a specific problem with Morse.

Morse missed Sunday’s practice on what was called a veteran maintenance day. Two in a row with a day off in between is mildly suspect, but Morse is coming off core muscle surgery this offseason. Because he missed the spring workouts following surgery, it’s imperative he and second-year quarterback Josh Allen get on the same page with line calls.
“He did clear his physical & was fine to practice the first few days. Haven’t seen reports that he was laboring or trainers attending to him,” said our Banged Up Bills in a tweet. “My initial thought: this is more precautionary as he’s a veteran & likely starter. This may change if more info is released.”
Morse was signed to four-year, $44.5 million contract during free agency to fill the massive void at center.
