---Linebacker Chris Kelsay and wide receiver Roscoe Parrish were among several players who sat out practice on Monday. Parrish also missed the majority of Sunday’s session.
“Both are feeling tight and instead of pushing it right now, since they get a day off [Tuesday], it’s almost 48-50 hours before we go again so we decided to give them the afternoon off so they can get back Wednesday,’’ Bills coach Chan Gailey said.
The number of players missing from practice has increased over the last three days. Second-year nose tackle Torell Troup left practice early Monday with what Gailey said was a hand injury.
Also missing practice were Demetrius Bell, Antonio Coleman, Drayton Florence, Justin Rogers, Marcus Easley, Shawn Nelson, Kellen Heard and Kelvin Sheppard. Fatigue, Gailey said, is a factor.
“When you get to practice eight and nine that’s where it’s starts to wear on them a little bit,’’ Gailey said. “They’ve been running and they’ve been doing things but they haven’t been carrying that extra weight and then their legs get a little fatigued. It’s mostly 90 percent lower body.’’
