PLAYERS: Mario Williams
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams has returned to practice. He participated in Buffalo’s defensive line drills during Saturday’s training camp session, but he continues to be held out of contact drills as he recovers from his foot injury, according to WGR550’s Joe Buscaglia and Mario Williams went through the install portion of practice. A tiny step forward. #Bills — Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) August 3, 2013 Contact Drills now. Mario Williams helmet off. Looks to be a spectator. Sore foot is a pain. — GIFF (@VPGIFF) August 3, 2013 Williams had been away from the team for several days following his foot injury. The extent of the ailment was unknown for some time, as Bills head coach Doug Marrone had little to offer questioning reporters. It was finally revealed that the injury wasn’t expected to be severe, as Dr. James Andrews told Williams the ailment would recover with treatment and rest. At this point, it seems like the Bills will take things slow with Williams as they ease him back into full-contact drills. They could also elect to sideline him through the start of the preseason in an effort to keep him healthy for the start of the regular campaign.

Young, 30, has not played in an NFL game since the 2011 season when he was with the Buffalo Bills during their training camp.

First Week Is In The Books

Credit: Now that the first week of camp is in the books, I am becoming more and more convinced that the Bills might have a chance to compete this year in the AFC East. Doug Marrone and C.o are running a spirited and competitive camp, and, with the exception of Jairus Byrd not being at practice because of his contract squabble, things in Bills nation are pretty calm...

Stevie Johnson working primarily in the slot

With the influx of youth at the wide receiver position since Stevie Johnson signed his contract extension a year ago the Buffalo Bills front office has followed through with a plan to hopefully take more advantage of his jukes and moves in the slot.

Green Bay to workout Vince Young

Vince Young needs a paycheck, and the Green Bay Packers might be a team willing to give it to him. Facing serious financial issues, Young cannot be picky about the team he gets a job with. Nobody is looking for him to compete for playing time, and the Packers certainly won’t be looking at Young as an option to lead their offense with Aaron Rodgers under center. However, the backups...
