Rookies and veterans suited up and got to work on Thursday. The Buffalo Bills are healthy. All but one player, backup tight end Mike Caussin took the field.
It’s all hand on deck. Last season, 19 players landed on the injured reserve including running back Fred Jackson. Jackson is back and ready to go.
Stevie Johnson has fully recovered from off-season groin surgery. That’s good news for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who now has his first chance to work with his number one receiver.
Overall players seem excited and happy about being back to work and back in front of the fans.
Fitzpatrick said, “I love training camp. Getting away and begin able to kind of put normal life aside for a bit and getting here and focus 100% on football and I think this team is ready and we're excited to get going here.”
Johnson said, “Just for the fact I want to get back in the swing of things; to get back used to running routes, consistently catching, being around the guys so it's a good feeling we're going to have the fans out here so it's going to be exciting, I'm trying to stay even keel its tough.”
Nick Barnett, Bills linebacker, said, “Good having everybody healthy all the guys back we expect so much out of everybody we have to go out and build that team all the guys are excited to play I'm excited so well see what happens.”
