Football -- or at least the kind that doesn't actually involve a ball, helmets or pads -- arrived at One Bills Drive Monday as the Buffalo Bills began their voluntary workout program.
Players were on the field of the ADPRO Sports Training Center doing various agility drills, working with medicine balls, and generally going about a low-impact transition transition into offseason training.
Notable no-shows on the field were wide receiver Sammy Watkins, defensive tackle Kyle Williams and offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson. Williams is recovering from a major knee injury that caused him to miss 10 games last season. Henderson missed the final three games last season after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease.
Running back LeSean McCoy, who was involved in a February nightclub brawl in Philadelphia, participated, as did defensive lineman Corbin Bryant, who on Monday signed the restricted free-agent tender the Bills gave him.
Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel, the only quarterbacks on the Bills' current roster, also were on hand.
Coach Rex Ryan is due to give a media briefing later today, and select players also are expected to be made available to reporters.
