Sean McDermott gives updates on Diggs, Hamlin as Bills start training camp


Head Coach Sean McDermott gave updates regarding the team's relationship with wide receiver Stefon Diggs and their expectations for safety Damar Hamlin as the first practice of Bills training camp began Wednesday morning.

"We're in a good spot and Stef is ready to practice. He's in the locker room now and he put in a lot of hard work this summer." Sean McDermott

Diggs, who missed the Bills' opening practice of minicamp in June, was on the field for Wednesday's practice. "We know what Stef can do, we know what type of player he is and what he means to our football team," said McDermott.

McDermott also gave an update regarding Hamlin's participation. The 25-year-old suffered cardiac arrest due to commotio cordis in a January game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"With Damar's situation, he has our full support and always will and then, we'll continue to take it one day at a time and we'll go at his cadence. At this point, he's full go." Sean McDermott

McDermott spoke on the importance of holding training camp away from the facility in Orchard Park. Since 2000, training camp has been hosted at St. John Fisher University in Rochester.

"We also feel there's value in getting away to camp for at least the time that we're going to be here for and I think a big piece of that is really to building the relationships where guys can hang out after practice and get to know one another a little bit better." Sean McDermott

Training camp will continue to be held at St. John Fisher until Aug. 10.
