Marker Rookie Ritual [10:07 PM] reports: '“Whatever I did in college really doesn't mean anything right now,” Ezekiel explained. “What matters is what I do during practice, during the scrimmages, during the preseason games, and obviously when we watch film I have to be in the right place at the right time.”'

Marker Replacing Pat [10:06 PM] reports: 'Anderson is a second year man who played spraringly as a rookie. But he still feels he has a shot to win that starting job.

How I play and the way I'm using my techniques and things like that," Anderson said.'

Marker Bills tight ends healthy in time for training camp [10:05 PM]
AP reports: '"It's pretty important," coach Mike Mularkey said of having his top two tight ends back. "You had to think about that position going into camp. You kept saying, `They're going to be there.' And having them in there, I think our offense may be ahead."'

Marker Zebras patrolling sidelines at camp [3:12 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: 'The zebras were out in force at Buffalo Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College on Monday.

Marker Ten Questions with Willis McGahee [1:33 PM]
CNN/SI reports: 'Is it a load off your shoulders to have the Travis Henry situation dealt with and know you're the Bills' No. 1 back?
"It's nice that I don't really have to worry about answering questions about how Travis and I get along. We always got along. There were no problems between us two. Remember, they drafted me. It wasn't like I picked Buffalo. That's what people didn't understand.'''

Marker Training Camp Postcard: Bills [1:12 PM]
CNN/SI reports: 'J.P., take a tip. This is the NFL. The defenders are bigger, faster and stronger. Your ability to make plays on the run will serve you well, providing you don't rely on that part of your game too heavily. The pocket must become your friend.'

Marker The Dope Sheet [1:02 PM] reports: Press release for Packers-Bills practice.

Marker Bills TEs feel hale and hearty [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'm pretty pleased," said coach Mike Mularkey. "I feel they haven't missed a beat since that infamous game in Miami. They've come in here confident and been very productive up to this point."'

Marker J.P. shows he's a run threat [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Is Mularkey concerned Losman's scrambling success in practice might cause the QB to run too much? "That to me is a serious threat that we're going to take advantage of," Mularkey said. "If he can see it and wants to take it, I'm not going to take that away from him. . . . He just has to know . . . he's got to be smart about it, and that tough-guy image has to take a break and get down or get out of bounds."'

Marker Free-agent Leonhard always in the thick of it [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"He was a fantastic player in college who overcame all the odds," said Bills secondary coach Steve Szabo, who encouraged the signing of Leonhard. "I don't think he's going to wow you with his vertical leap, his 40 time. You look at his body and he's not a ripped guy. But he's a football player."'

Marker Williams puts on some weight for strength [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Williams is a smaller version of McGahee, who can excel between the tackles and turn the corner. "I've always felt I can hit it up inside if I need to," Williams said.'

Marker Gudmundsen is latest example of football artistry [5:00 AM]

Marker Fisher the big winner in agreement with Bills [4:59 AM]

Marker Packers will have company [4:58 AM]
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports: 'Within hours of Mularkey's suggestion that the Bills join the Packers for two days of joint practices, the wheels in the Packers coach's head were spinning full bore. By the time the two sat down together the next day, Sherman was on board, ready to end the prohibition against joint practices instituted in 1992 by former coach Mike Holmgren. "I just thought we were two teams with similar (backgrounds)," Mularkey said. "Two cities passionate about their teams. I think I put a bug in his ear and he liked the thought."'

Marker Beebe's brings House of Speed clinic to Elgin [4:57 AM]
Elgin Courier News reports: '"Eight years ago when I retired from the Packers, I was thinking about going into some kind of coaching," Beebe said. "And then with my partner, Dr. Jeff Schutt, we got together and we started talking about how every coach at every level wants their (athletes) to run a little bit faster, jump a little bit higher, yet nobody ever trains or coaches these kids to do that. It was really kind of a brand new concept. I said, 'Let's start a business that does that.'"'

Marker Vikings' defense dips into Bill fold [4:56 AM]
St. Paul Pioneer Press reports: 'Buffalo's NFL-best defense of 1999 hasn't exactly resurfaced in Minnesota.

"Like the guys in Buffalo, we're real fast," nose tackle Pat Williams said. "If everybody comes together and runs to the ball, we'll be fine."'

Marker Offense Engages in Competitive Battle [10:14 PM] reports: '"It's been relatively competitive." Mularkey said after the afternoon session. "The offense has done very well the first few practices. We started the team period with a first down and a few big plays but then we had a lull and our defense picked it up and responded. I'm kind of anxious to see how we do offensively responding. It's been back-and-forth and that's kind of what you want from the two sides."'

Marker Leonhard Making the Most of the Opportunity [10:12 PM] reports: 'Standing at 5-foot-8, 190 pounds (likely while soaking wet), Leonhard doesn't look the part of your typical NFL player. His 4.6 forty time didn't wow scouts either. But what he lacks in size and speed he tries to make up for with smarts and his understanding of the game.'

Marker Updates From Training Camp [10:08 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Tom Donahoe said that he did extend a contract offer to Drew Rosenhouse regarding 3rd round pick Kevin Everett. Due to Everett's injury, there is no rush to sign the tight end. Donahoe has not yet heard back from Rosenhouse.'

Marker Football From the Mines [10:02 PM] reports: '"A lot of them don't know where it's at or hadn't heard of it before," said Daniel Leger. "They get the mines part wrong and say mimes, call it school of the mimes. I get everything."'

Marker Bills' Gray preaching playoffs to cement defense's reputation [4:57 PM]
AP reports: 'Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray wants his Buffalo Bills players to know: It's one thing to lead the league in turnovers, as they did last year, or finish second in fewest yards allowed for two consecutive seasons.

Marker Packers scrimmage draws NFL Network, Sharpe [4:30 PM]

Marker Player Spotlight: J.P. Losman [4:28 PM] reports: 'Losman can certainly talk the talk, but can he walk the walk? We're about to find out...'

Marker Latest Training Camp Report [3:52 PM]
The Stadium Wall reports: "He [Losman] also made a SWEET screen pass lob to McGahee that Willis would have easily taken for +20 yards at least if it were an actual game. He dropped back, waited for the Defense to overpursue, and then threw it perfectly to McGahee."

Marker No. 7 is center of attention [9:53 AM]

Marker Losman holds the key [9:52 AM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: 'Best-case scenario: Losman quickly grasps the offense and turns in a Ben Roethlisberger-esque season as a deft game manager, while also using his running ability to give the offense another rising playmaker to go with Willis McGahee and Lee Evans. Worst-case scenario: Overwhelmed by the starting job, Losman’s inexperience hampers the offense. Losman’s struggles force Kelly Holcomb — who was brilliant at times and maddening at others in limited first-string duty with Cleveland — to take over.'

Marker Singin' at the Ralph [9:51 AM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: '“The most difficult thing to deal with was that there is approximately a two-second delay when you sing, so you really can’t listen to yourself (on the stadium’s public-address system). When you sing your fourth word, you hear your first word come out of the speakers and it’s in a different key, so if you listen to the playback, you’ll mess the whole thing up. And the Bills didn’t give you a chance to practice. They just handed you the microphone.”'

Marker Clements ready to turn the corner [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I feel that I am the best," he said after the Buffalo Bills completed Day Two of training camp Sunday at St. John Fisher. "The film doesn't lie. The numbers don't lie either. I put up numbers every year. I'm versatile, I return punts as well as play special teams and I'm durable. I would put myself up against anybody in the league."'

Marker The billboard [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills owner Ralph Wilson made an appearance at camp Sunday. Practice was halted briefly as the players gathered at midfield to listen to Wilson address the team.'
