The Buffalo Bills’ tempers are starting to flare again. Which brings us to Buffalo Bills Fight Camp. Right before they left for Pittsburgh to conduct a joint practice, a fight broke out at camp. Yesterday, another fight broke out with the instigator being the same young rookie defensive tackle that was the center of the fight last time.
The Bills were working on their goalline offense. Eric Wood was lined up against rookie DT Bryan Johnson. Johnson decided to engage in a block longer than he should have an Wood let him know it. The next thing that Wood knew was his helmet was off and he had absorbed a couple of face shot from Johnson.
The frustrations are stemming on the offense due to the fact that they have not been able to see the end zone in any of the first three preseason games. This tension could extinguish itself come Saturday with a deep bomb to Sammy Watkins, from EJ Manuel to start the contest off. A quick end zone visit no matter how it is will bring some life back to this first team squad and also calm some tensions down.
The next bit of decision making needs to be determined about Bryan Johnson. Being a rookie and this being his second fight that he has initiated in what seems to be less than a week needs to be handled. Doug Marrone does not tolerate fights so it will be interesting to see if Johnson makes it past these first round of cuts to get the team roster down to 75.
