Buffalo Bills guard Doug Legursky was back on the practice field today.
That doesn't fall in the "breaking news" category, but given the Bills' struggles at left guard over the first couple weeks of the season, it's a potentially important development.
Left guard Colin Brown beat out Legursky for the job early in training camp, but Brown has struggled according to analytics site ProFootballFocus.com.
PFF's metrics rank Brown the worst guard in the league.
He has graded out at minus- 9.8 in run blocking and minus-5.9 in pass blocking. PFF has faulted him for EJ Manuel's lone sack and eight hurries, including all four in Sunday's 24-23 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
Legursky had a large brace on his left knee, which he injured in the second preseason game. Legursky's injury appeared serious at the time, but he was not placed on short-term injured reserve because the Bills expected him back and able to contribute.
