LOSMAN, HARDY NOT PARTICIPATING: J.P. Losman and James Hardy are not participating in practice. Losman in practice Friday appeared to tweak his thumb at one point and its likely the reason he's not throwing.
Hardy's hamstring is just not cooperating which has to have the rookie receiver frustrated knowing how desperately he wants to make an impact this season. Hardy wants to take reps, but at the same time he knows he has to be smart with his body. 3 days is better than 2-3 weeks.
JAMES, CROWELL WATCHING: Angelo Crowell and Will James are not participating in practice. Crowell is still recovering from a knee ailment and James is dealing with a groin injury
Spragan on campus

SPRAGAN ON CAMPUS: Bills newly signed LB Donnie Spragan arrived on the St. John Fisher campus shortly after 9 this morning. The Bills pro personnel staff led by John Guy then accompanied him to the dining hall to get him some breakfast and get his contract paperwork squared away. Having to get set up with a room and measured for a helmet and issued equipment there's a good chance he might not make it onto the field in time for Saturday's morning practice, but we'll keep you posted.
Edwards rating offense vs. defense
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 1:30 AM ET
EDWARDS RATING OFFENSE VS. DEFENSE: For the most part in training camp the offense and defense have been neck and neck in terms of progress. Bills QB Trent Edwards was asked for his assessment of the competition between both sides of the ball.
"I feel like we have gone back and forth the past couple of practices in different periods and working in different situations," said Edwards. "We've done a good job at times and we've made mistakes at times so it's kind of gone back and forth but I don't know where we rank compared to them right now. I can't really give you a grade on that but we're just trying to improve. I know defensively and offensively we're trying to get better each day."
Obviously Edwards is more concerned with consistent offensive execution than who is getting the better of whom out on the field more often.
