Poz, Corto to start on shelf

Bills starting inside linebacker Paul Posluszny said today he will not be practicing fully when the team opens training camp Thursday afternoon. Posluszny underwent a minor surgery on his groin two weeks ago, he said, and is expected to take a couple of weeks before returning to full action. Posluszny said he will work on the side to open camp, but he won't open camp on the physically unable to perform list.

"They said take care of it now, miss a couple weeks of camp, and be great for the season, as opposed to letting it linger and having it get worse on me in Week 7 or 8," Posluszny said, referring to team doctors.

Meanwhile, Orchard Park native Jon Corto, bidding to make the squad for a for a third straight year, had surgery on a broken left wrist, an injury he suffered during spring practices. A rod was inserted into the wrist. He said he's expecting to be ready to play in the third preseason game of the summer. Corto is vying for a backup job a safety this year. The Bills would appear to be set with their top four at the position - Jairus Byrd, Donte Whitner, Bryan Scott and George Wilson. That's going to make it a lot tougher for Corto to make a big impression on the Bills' new coaching staff. Not all NFL teams keep a fifth safety.
