Bills rookie tight end Dawson Knox will not practice Sunday with a hamstring injury, joining Jason Croom, who has missed the first part of training camp with a hamstring injury.
Minus Knox and Croom and with Tyler Kroft on the physically unable to perform list, the Bills have four healthy tight ends: Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney, Nate Becker and Keith Towbridge.
Center Mitch Morse and linebacker Lorenzo Alexander did not practice Sunday on veteran maintenance days.
The Bills are off Monday and resume Tuesday with a practice that is closed to the public at St. John Fisher College.
Here are some other notes from coach Sean McDermott’s news conference Sunday:
- On Josh Allen and John Brown being able to connect on deep throws Saturday, “As a defensive guy, my blood pressure gets pretty high.”
- On Cody Ford, “He’s off to a good start. The thing we feel strongly about is his mindset. He’s a physically tough player. A little fight broke out yesterday and he was one of the first ones in there. You like to see that.”
- On the battle for the cornerback spot opposite Tre’Davious White, “I like our level of competition with E.J. Gaines, with Levi, who I think is playing good solid football, and Kevin Johnson and a few other guys playing good football back there. I like where we are there.”
