Bills practice update
By Mike Rodak
The Buffalo Bills returned to the practice field on Friday, and the biggest news was wide receiver Stevie Johnson leaving with a left hamstring injury. Bills coach Doug Marrone said after practice that he did not know the severity of the injury, and that Johnson will be evaluated by Buffalo's doctors. The NFL Network reported Johnson will have an MRI.
"It would be a major concern when we talk about it during the season, but right now, I think a veteran player that has proven himself, we'll just see what the doctors say," Marrone said.
Tight end Mike Caussin also left practice Friday with a hip injury.
Otherwise, here are some observations from the practice, which was the Bills' fifth of training camp:
- Defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who has been held out of team drills early in training camp while he works his way back from Achilles surgery, saw some reps during 11-on-11 drills today, according to Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550.
- After Marrone said Wednesday that he wasn't pleased with the results of the competition at left guard, Doug Legursky took more first-team reps on Friday, in place of Colin Brown, Buscaglia noted.
- Wide receiver Kevin Elliott, who left Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury, remained out of action on Friday, according to Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News.
