PITTSFORD -- The first injury of training camp for the Buffalo Bills has been suffered by a player who is all too familiar with them.
Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus "tweaked" his hamstring late in Friday's practice, coach Sean McDermott said, and was not on the field as the team held its first padded practice of training camp Saturday morning at St. John Fisher College.
"Any time players miss time, you get concerned, whether it's Marcell or anyone else," McDermott said. "I'm going to stay positive with it. He's done a great job of being in shape at this point in camp. Really handled things well. So we'll see how this unfolds."
Dareus, who missed four games last season with hamstring or groin injuries, was hurt in the last quarter of Friday's practice, McDermott said. The coach added that he was happy with the condition Dareus was in when he reported to camp, saying "it's been very positive. He's done a great job. Credit to him."
