Watkins Practices; Team Names Six Captains
AP - EJ ManuelThe Bills held their first practice of the regular season Monday and were pretty healthy as Sammy Watkins returned to the field but Doug Marrone declined to say how much he actually did. Chris Williams, Scott Chandler, and Stephon Gilmore all returned to practice. Randell Johnson was doing work on the side with trainers but remained sidelined. Lee Smith is still sidelined with his toe injury. Marrone said Leodis McKelvin is very close to being 100% healthy and will start against Chicago and will likely serve as the primary punt returner. The Bills now have 9 players on their practice squad after adding Guard D.J. Morrell and FB Lonnie Pryor to the unit. They have one open space left. Jeff Tuel, Jimmy Gaines, Deon Broomfield, Caleb Holley, Kenny Ladler, Ike Igbinosun, and Bryan Johnson are also on the practice sqauad.

The big name released was not a surprise as T.J. Graham was let go. The Bills reportedly were trying to trade him all offseason. Doug Legursky was released which means Kraig Urbik made the team as a backup interior lineman and the number two center. Jordan Gay makes the team as the kickoff specialist and gives them a backup punter. More...
