Brown, Jackson, TD

Rookie quarterback Levi Brown got to run a two-minute drill for the first time this training camp, and he produced a touchdown, hitting receiver Chad Jackson on a 15-yard strike in the end zone with about 8 seconds left.

Jackson's grab was the catch of the day Tuesday at St. John Fisher College. The former second-round pick of the New England Patriots reached behind him and picked the ball out of the air with his right hand, behind defensive back Dominique Harris.

“Great catch," Brown said. “I told him he made me look good. It was a terrible throw. But he caught it so I’ll take it."

Brown had six completions and a 15-yard scramble on the march, which began at his own 35. Short throws to Chad Simpson and Donald Jones produced third-down conversions.

“He’s very comfortable away from center," coach Chan Gailey said. “That’s what he did at Troy. I think he feels good in the (shot) gun."

Jackson has had a strong first two weeks of training camp. He's seeing time in the slot with the starters and time in the slot and outside with the second team.

The Bills’ offense held its own in Tuesday’s session, following up on a pretty good showing Monday night. Trent Edwards opened the 7-on-7 red-zone session with a sharp completion to Roscoe Parrish near the goal line. Edwards was 5 of 6 to start the session. He had a 12-yard TD strike over the middle to rookie David Nelson and a pinpoint pass to tight end Shawn Nelson for a score.

The defense stopped the offense on 3 of 4 live goal-line plays. Brohm hit Stevie Johnson for a score on the last play. John McCargo had a tackle for loss during the run-fits portion of practice. In 11 on 11 work, the offense picked up the blitz to allow Edwards to hit Lee Evans ov er the middle for a good gain. Dwan Edwards, who looks stout, stuffed C.J. Spiller. Edwards also smelled out a screen pass later on. ... Bryan Scott beat a block to stymie a screen pass. Spiller looked good on a run around end out of the shotgun. ... Brian Brohm hit Roscoe Parrish on a good pass over the middle. Parrish is having a pretty good camp.
