Camp roundup: Bills will hold out T.O.

Bills coach Dick Jauron announced WR Terrell Owens’ sprained toe will keep him out of Saturday’s preseason game at Green Bay.

Owens isn’t expected to return until “next week some time,” according to Jauron. Owens has missed two consecutive days of practice following a brief 20-minute workout on Monday.

First round-draft pick DE Aaron Maybin never made it to Bills camp, which closed on Wednesday. Bills.com lead writer Chris Brown notes there has been little progress of late in contract talks with Maybin, and also posted his 2009 camp awards.

As training camps close shop and teams return home, here are a few other notes from around the league:

  • NFL.com’s Thomas George was at Giants camp, and also posted his camp report. Giants.com writer Michael Eisen posted a feature on WR David Tyree, one of the five featured players on our On The Fringe series. The Giants got removed DT Rocky Bernard from the non-football injury list, ahd he returned for limited practice activities with CBs Corey Webster (hip) and CB Aaron Ross (hamstring). Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he had no update on when DL Chris Canty would be back.
  • The Dolphins released veteran CB Eric Green, leaving rookies Sean Smith and Vontae Davis to contend for a starting job. NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan observed on a recent visit to Dolphins camp that Smith, the team’s second-round pick, appeared to be ahead of Davis, a first-round pick.
  • Browns coach Eric Mangini is still keeping his starting quarterback a secret. Zac Jackson noted on Clevelandbrowns.com that the coaching staff has tracked every snap between Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn throughout camp, and just four snaps separate the two.
  • Redskins TE Chris Cooley (back) and DE Phillip Daniels missed Wednesday morning’s practice, but both are expected to play against the Steelers on Saturday night. OT Mike Williams, who has not played in the NFL since 2005, is questionable for Saturday after spraining an ankle in practice this week. Williams is competing for the starting right tackle spot with Stephon Heyer and Jeremy Bridges, according to Redskins.com.
