PITTSFORD -- Bills starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has looked sharp so far in training camp practices at St. John Fisher College.
New quarterbacks coach David Lee likes what he has seen.
"I thought he had two really good practices the first two days out," Lee said today. "Then we put the pads on (Saturday) and the defensive line disrupted all our timing, disrupted everything we’ve been working on and kind of had to regroup and start again in practice No. 4."
"He’s throwing well right now, making good decisions," Lee said. "He doesn’t have an interception -– well he does, in two-minute drill (Sunday) on a pass that got blocked at the line by Mario Williams."
Camp is only four practices old. Nevertheless, Fitzpatrick has looked pretty good with his deep accuracy, particularly to the left, which was a point of emphasis for him this offseason.
"It’s a credit to him because he’s worked on it from the spring and worked on it through the summer," Lee said. "He’s very conscious of where his feet need to be when he throws left, and throws left and deep. I was pleased the other night. We threw several 'go' balls. We didn’t hit ‘em all, but all of them stayed in bounds. We didn’t carry any of them out of bounds, and it’s because he had good footwork. That was encouraging."
