Brad Smith, Ron Brooks lone Bills not practicing

By Jay Skurski

Just two Buffalo Bills weren't on the field this afternoon as the team prepares for Sunday's season opener against the New York Jets.

One of those, rookie cornerback Ron Brooks, will be out for several weeks because of a foot injury. The other was quarterback/receiver Brad Smith, who suffered a groin injury in last week's preseason game against the Detroit Lions.

Smith was riding a stationary bike at the start of practice.

The bigger news was who was practicing: cornerback Terrence McGee (knee), right tackle Erik Pears (groin) and defensive end Mark Anderson (groin).

Both McGee and Anderson said earlier today they expect to play against the Jets. Bills coach Chan Gailey will update the injury situation following practice.
