Buffalo Bills Training Camp Day 5 Open Thread

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

It’s officially week two of Buffalo Bills training camp. The Bills practiced four times last week from Wednesday to Saturday including the first open practice in nearly two years. After a rest day on Sunday, the team is back at it on Monday.

So far, practices have been limited to just helmets and shorts so we’re hoping the pads are going to start to come on Monday and we get some cracking.

Offensive coordinator Brian Dabol speaks at 9:15 Eastern. Some good stuff will come from that, no doubt.

I’ve included the Bills Reporters Twitter list to follow along with the updates from the local beat reporters.

The biggest camp news so far:

  • Jerry Hughes starts the year on NF-I with a calf strain.
  • Ike Boettger and Dion Dawkins begin camp on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Rookie Spencer Brown has been the starting left tackle based on images we’ve seen, but Bobby Hart was used on Saturday.
  • TE Jacob Hollister has been sidelined with a back injury.
  • All the Bills coaches are vaccinated.
  • 80 percent-plus of Bills players are vaccinated.
  • Josh Allen has looked very good in throwing drills, so much that Emmanuel Sanders said he’s throwing passes he’s never seen before. (And that dude has caught passes from three Hall of Famers.)
  • Jake Kumerow has jumped to the head of the pack in the wide receiver depth competition.
  • Without pads, the Bills’ rookie pass rushers are making an impact.
