Bills Enter Final Phase Of Training Camp This Week
We can all agree that 2020 has been a very unique year due to COVID-19. While some youth sports have come back, some major colleges have canceled their seasons. The pro sports have been doing all they can to make sure a season happens, and the Bills took another step towards the regular season today.
For the first time since this year's training camp kicked off on July 28th, the Bills players will be able to practice in full pads today. That is a signal that the team is hoping to be ready to play in their home opener against the Jets on September 13th.
Now not everything will be back to normal. While players will be in full pads, full contact will not happen until later this week. Also because of COVID-19, the Bills are not holding their training camp at St. John Fisher College. They are at One Bills Drive in Orchard Park.
Also don't think you will have a chance to see the team before the season opener. Training camp this Summer is closed to the public due to COVID-19.
The Bills will be able to hold contact practices until September 6th with the start of the NFL season set for that next week.
Currently, the Bills have 81 players on their roster and are expected to have that down to 53 players before the start of the season. They will also be able to have 12 players on their practice squad this season.
