Gailey: Jones will start camp as Bills no. 2 WR

In a move that isn't all that shocking or alarming, Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey confirmed what was expected as the team gets ready for their first practice of training camp on Thursday.

Even though the job is still up for grabs, incumbent starter Donald Jones will open up camp as the number-two wide receiver.

"Donald will start there. But still, we're looking at everybody. We've not ruled anybody out at this point at that spot. You've got to have somebody that walks out there the first day and you all will write about it and talk about it, but we're going to move people around at different times at camp," Gailey remarked.

Jones will be in a battle with fellow wideouts Derek Hagan, T.J. Graham, Marcus Easley and others for the "starting" position.

Being the number-two in the Bills system is just a labeling mechanism anyway. Most times the Bills will be in three-to-four wide receiver sets, meaning plenty of players will get plenty of repetitions.

Regardless, the battle for that spot is one of the positions that will be looked at the most over the course of the next three weeks.
