Terrell Owens did not participate in a morning walkthrough with the Bills on Tuesday — it was an excused absence — and was not scheduled to practice during the team’s night session, either, according to a statment released during the afternoon by coach Dick Jauron.
“Terrell Owens will not participate in tonight’s practice due to a sprained toe,” Jauron’s statement read. “I will address his status in more detail following tonight’s practice session.”

- The Bills started two rookies — Andy Levitre and Eric Wood — at guard in the Hall of Fame Game against the Titans, and Chris Brown blogged on Buffalobills.com that Levitre had the highest coaching grades of any offensive lineman for the Bills.
