For the time being, Terrell Owens’ toe is the center of attention in Bills training camp. Owens sat out both practice sessions Wednesday, which included a morning walkthrough, because of his sprained toe.
Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com passed along a conversation between coach Dick Jauron and Owens in his blog Wednesday, in which the wide receiver said the injury “felt a little better.” Jauron didn’t elaborate, other than to say Owens is considered day to day.
Owens injured the toe during Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game against the Titans and hasn’t practiced since.
Some other Bills-related notes:
- Jason La Canfora mentioned the Bills as one of four teams in his Mike Vick Watch List on Wednesday, noting that, according to sources, they might be on the market for backup quarterbacks.
- A scuffle broke out on the Bills’ 15th day of training camp — as they are wont to do — involving DE Chris Kelsay, rookie G Eric Wood, RB Dominic Rhodes and DT John McCargo. Jauron wasn’t pleased, according to Lindsay Carucci’s practice notes, but Rhodes believes fights bring the team together. “Every once in a while, you get into it with your brother. It’s good. It’s good for team morale and we get closer that way. At least we know that we’ve got some scrappers out there, I guess. It’s nothing big.”
- Second-year WR James Hardy is leaning on Owens as a mentor.
- The team waived DB Dustin Fox on Wednesday.
