The Bills have closed their practices to the media. Not completely shut them out, but they have enacted their regular season practice rules, which means the media can only see the first fifteen minutes or so. The rest is blacked out.
Rumor has it on Monday, the team had a field trip planned so the first team offense could see what a scoring drive looked like. (UPDATED 09/02/09 – Apparently Jerry Sullivan used this same type of line in an article he wrote. I meant no plagarism or weakness in this, I did not read or see Jerry’s article what so ever. )
The good news is Schobel, Jackson, and Owens all practiced fully, increasing their odds that they could be on the field for Thursday’s contest against the Lions. Regardless of their readiness, they will likely be held out of the game to avoid the chance of injury before the home opener.
Detroit on Thursday is the last time before the regular season that Edwards and the rest of the first team offense has a chance to get in the end zone, don’t expect to much time on the field or too many snaps for them though, as the team has turned its attention to New England and week 1.
