The Buffalo Bills 2024 minicamp has come and gone, and there were some bright spots from the three-day practice. Before they departed until training camp, the team took part in several shorts and shirts practices, so we couldn’t get a good read on who will have a good season this fall. However, we did get an idea of how the depth chart will shake out before their first preseason matchup. There were some surprising starting rotations, with Josh Allen throwing passes to second-year undrafted wide receiver Tyrell Shavers for example.

The media wasn’t allowed to film all of the practice, only getting one-on-one work on tape, so the rest is up to the local media to describe to you. Whether or not you put any weight into what you hear about June practices is up to you, but it is nice to get a sense of how the team looks with their new players. 

One bright spot from the week was Matt Milano practicing on a limited basis. Milano took part in individual work on the side, as Ty Dunne mentioned. McDermott told reporters they’re “taking it one day at a time” with his recovery, and it's just a matter of “trying to put practices back-to-back”. While it wasn’t team drills, it’s a step in the right direction for Milano’s recovery and made all of Billsmafia very happy. 

In this article, we’ll be discussing two bright spots and two disappointments from Bills' minicamp practices. The Bills had many bright spots from practice, but it’s also important to highlight the lows of practice as well. With this many new players added in just a short period, the Bills will have to make sure everything is ready to go by Week One, and that starts in June.
