Marker McGahee braces for Browns scrimmage [10:16 PM]

Special teams will face each other, and that's all in the morning. In the afternoon they're going to go into shoulder pads and we'll have a blitz period and, again, another team period like we had today, finishing up with a two two-minute segments. Saturday we'll have designed drives. After a brief special teams period we'll go right into the scrimmage, designed to flip-flop offense and defense and with little wrinkles to it depending on where the drive ends and all those things. We'll get a lot of good work and a lot of situational football that's tough to script.'

Marker The billboard [1:05 PM]

Marker Milloy settling in [1:02 PM]

Marker Transcript: Coach Mike Mularkey [12:51 PM] reports: 'On if he was focusing on Willis McGahee during goal line:

Marker After apologizing, Williams goes to work [8:54 AM]

Rochester D&C reports: '“We waited as long as we could, until about a quarter to six, before we made the decision,” said general manager Tom Donahoe. “Prior to coming up here this summer, with the way the weather has been, we felt we needed an alternate site ready to go if we needed it.

Marker Oh Ricky [5:25 AM]
Rochester City Newspaper reports: 'But [Ruben] Brown is the only player I'd ever seen with a sign hung in his locker that heralded marijuana. That was three seasons ago, and I don't remember exactly what the sign said. But I'm still surprised that it was even there, particularly because the NFL and the Bills are as image-conscious as Britney Spears.'

Marker Williams returns to practice after being fined by Bills [5:24 AM]

Marker Williams fined for missing team practice [9:07 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: '“If it’s a distraction, you couldn’t tell by the way they’re practicing,” he said. “There’s nothing that I’ve seen disruptive in the meeting rooms or anything else. The practices have been pretty good. They’ve been getting things done excellently.”'

Marker Lee Evans wants to make immediate progress as rookie [12:57 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: '“The tempo of the game is much quicker up here. When I was at Wisconsin, there wasn’t people around practices, so it was exciting to start camp.” Mularkey agreed. “Lee is going to be a special receiver,” he said. “It’s a different game at this level, and there are still little things I recognize out there, like coming back for the ball. Lee had a good start, but he has some little things to work on.”'
