A Visit To Buffalo Bills Training Camp

With most of this year’s Buffalo Bills training camp workouts in the morning I’m not going to be able to get to see too many of them.  But there was plenty to see and there were a number of things that happened during Saturday morning’s workout at St. John Fisher College.  The biggest story was that quarterback Kevin Kolb slipped on a wet rubber mat heading from one field to another and tweaked his knee.  Afterwards coach Doug Marrone said it didn’t appear to be serious, but Kolb would be out for at least several days.

With the injury to Kolb it means rookie E-J Manuel will get most of the snaps and it

could give him the early edge for the starting job.  Both Kolb and Manuel throw a tight spiral and both are right on target, but at least when I’ve been able to see him throw it seems Manuel gets the ball out just a little bit quicker and with more zip.

This year the Bills appear to be putting emphasis on throwing the long ball.  They’ve got the speed receivers and now the quarterbacks to do it.  Manuel connected with Marcus Easley on a long touchdown pass.  He also hit rookie Robert Woods a number of times.  T J Graham caught a long pass.

The Bills also worked on goal line situations and a couple of offensive linemen caught short touchdown passes Sam Young and Thomas Welch.  Welch looked like a wide receiver by making sure to get both feet in just before the end line.

Coach Marrone continued to emphasize huddling up quickly.  After the play he wants the players to hustle back to the huddle, then hustle to the line of scrimmage.  There were a number of times during the goal line situations he shouted at his players because they weren’t moving quickly enough.

Some good news; defensive end Mario Williams was on the field for the first time in full gear and didn’t seem to have any trouble with his foot.
