Bills' Kolb has chance to scrimmage Monday



Pittsford, NY (WGR 550)  -- One day removed from suffering one of the flukiest injuries in the National Football League in 2013 so far, Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb was nowhere to be found on Sunday during the team's practice. Kolb slipped on the rubber mats between practice fields at St. John Fisher College Saturday and bumped his knee, forcing him to leave that practice early.

Head Coach Doug Marrone said on Saturday that Kolb would be day-to-day, but on Sunday he said Kolb may even be able to participate in the scrimmage on Monday night.

"We're trying to get him back for tomorrow," the head coach remarked. "We just kept him out today off the field, because if he's standing on the field, it's not something that's going to help him at this point in time. We're trying to get him back for tomorrow, which we think we have an opportunity to do that."

Kolb was one of six players not taking part in any of the practice. He was joined by Stevie Johnson (hamstring), Kevin Elliott (shoulder), Justin Rogers (hamstring), Mike Caussin (hip) and rookie safety Duke Williams as the inactive members of the roster on Sunday.

With the rookie, it's a precautionary step at this point in time after leaving Saturday's practice prematurely.

"He showed some concussion-like symptoms," Marrone revealed. "We thought he was fine initially coming off the field. Then he just had some symptoms that we want to make sure that we're doing everything we can as an organization and as a league for player safety. Once we see those symptoms they go through a process with our trainers and doctors until they're able to be released."

The head coach did not reveal a timetable for Williams' return at this point in time.

Tight end Scott Chandler (knee) went through the initial parts of practice with the team, then went to the side with a trainer as the Bills started positional work. Marrone described it as another one of the scheduled rest days for Chandler, who is recovering from a torn ACL, especially with the scrimmage coming up on Monday night.

The Bills will go live for that very scrimmage on Monday night at training camp. The practice begins at 6 pm and is open to the public, but fans will need a ticket for entry.
