Brohm in red zone

The Bills' offense didn't look particularly impressive in Wednesday's organized team activity practice, although you can't draw too many conclusions either way from a spring workout in shorts. Brian Brohm had the best two completions during 7 on 7 red-zone work. He hit tight end Derek Schouman in the back corner of the end zone on his first play and then hit James Hardy in the same back corner on the next play. Both were pinpoint throws. Ryan Fitzpatrick got the first chance in 7 on 7 work Wednesday. Brohm was second and Trent Edwards third in 7 on 7. The rotation went Edwards, Fitzpatrick, Brohm, Brown; then Fitzpatrick, Edwards, Brohm, Fitzpatrick in 11 on 11. Brohm also fit the ball in a tight window to tight end Jon Stupar in the red zone session.

Buffalo's Naaman Roosevelt had a good day catching the ball overall. He made a grab over the middle near the goal line then held on after a slight collision with safety Jon Corto (in a meeting of former All-Western New Yorkers). Roosevelt made a good diving catch oiver the middle and caught one on a hitch pattern, both from Fitz. Roosevelt did have one drop on an out from Fitz. Stupar made a nifty catch on a slant from Levi Brown. Ashton Youboty created the best pickoff of the day, deflecting a pass fro Stupar, and Drayton Florence had a quick reaction to catch the carom.

Marshawn Lynch did not get a lot of snaps. He had a couple runs early in the 11 on 11 session. Much of the time he was standing right next to an assistant coach or leaning toward the huddle to get the signals for the upcoming plays.

Right tackle Cornell Green was out, Gailey said, due to a muscle pull. It may keep him out a couple days. With him out, the first team offensive line, left to right, was Jamon Meredith, Andy Levitre, Geoff Hangartner, Kirk Chambers and Nick Hennessey. Absent were Marcus Stroud and Shawn Nelson.
