“His foot is always harassing him,” said chief executive Brandon Beane. “He had hurt it again before that punt return against the Bears, and believe it or not, he got that thing back anyway.” And that’s why it was closed then. It still harasses him. The best thing to do is let him calm down, then we’ll put him down. “
Defensive end Jerry Hughes, who played in the exhibition game against Green Bay, was on the field but did not practice due to a day off for the veterans.
Reserve safety Jaquan Johnson, who sustained a knee injury, was on the pitch in his jersey but did not participate. Defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (calf) and security guard Micah Hyde (excused for personal reasons) were also absent.
2. The Bills quarterback’s Cups worked exactly as the team had hoped.
Substitutes Jake Fromm and Davis Webb were signed to the team’s practice squad, giving the team four quarterbacks, with Josh Allen and Mitch Trubisky on the active roster.
Trubisky’s status as the league’s most accredited substitute has allowed the Bills to keep just two quarterbacks on the active roster. Trubisky is playing on a one-year contract. So, it pays to have Webb, the fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft, still in the organization. Webb, a 2017 New York Giants third-round pick, is particularly praised by the Bills for his intelligence and value to Allen in scouting and planning games.
