Bills put ball in play at workout

The Buffalo Bills broke out the football for throwing and catching during their second day of players-only practices in Elma.

Quarterbacks Ryan Fitzpatrick, Levi Brown and Brian Brohm threw for at least a half an hour to receivers, running backs and tight ends. There were no defenders guarding the receivers. The workout was long - going for about two hours and 40 minutes. Most of it was on-field conditioning work and work in the weight room.

Said Fitzpatrick: "There’s obviously some rust out here today but that’s what this is for, getting the timing back. We’re not on a field here with lines or anything. We’re on a soccer field. So we had a couple issues in terms of figuring out how far everything was and even tracking the ball as far as the lights."

"But it was a good first day of throwing, I’ll tell you that," Fitzpatrick said. "It is like riding a bike. We were kidding out here. Just throwing some of that stuff to Lee, I could do it with my eyes closed. Even David Nelson. He’s become a guy that we’ve worked enough now that I’m getting real comfortable throwing the ball to him."

The unofficial attendance count of Bills players was 38. They included: quarterbacks Fitzpatrick, Brown and Brohm; running backs Fred Jackson, Corey McIntyre and Jehuu Caulcrick; receivers Lee Evans, David Nelson, Naaman Roosevelt, Paul Hubbard and Felton Huggins; offensive linemen Geoff Hangartner, Andy Levitre, Demetrius Bell, Cordaro Howard, Kraig Urbik and Jason Watkins; tight end Scott Chandler; defensive linemen Dwan Edwards, Spencer Johnson, Torell Troup and Alex Carrington; linebackers Chris Kelsay, Reggie Torbor, Andra Davis, Aaron Maybin, rookie Kelvin Sheppard, Arthur Moats, Antonio Coleman and Danny Batten; defensive backs Leodis McKelvin, Jairus Byrd, George Wilson, Jon Corto, Bryan Scott, rookie Da'Norris Searcy; punter Brian Moorman; and long-snapper Garrison Sanborn.
