Bills guard Legursky resumes practicing

Orchard Park, NY (WGR 550)  -- Following their Week Two win over the Carolina Panthers, the Buffalo Bills got even more good news following the victory that they hadn't suffered any injuries throughout. Making matters even more uplifting, the Bills saw one of their injured players from the preseason back on the practice field Wednesday.

Reserve offensive lineman Doug Legursky resumed work on the field following a nearly three-week stint on the injured list. The interior lineman suffered a knee injury in the team's preseason finale against Detroit and has been slowly working back over the past few weeks. Head coach Doug Marrone officially listed Legursky as a limited participant, after the player went through stretching and positional drills with the team.

In training camp this summer, Legursky was locked in a battle with Colin Brown to try and claim the starting duties at left guard. Brown had already been pulling away, and then Legursky's injury cemented the starting role. Through two games however, the starting left guard has struggled and some are wondering if Legursky may be an option when he's available for games.

Marrone did not shed any light if there would be a competition when the latter returns from the knee injury. 

"I think Colin Brown is our starting left guard and we’ll evaluate Doug when he gets back."

Legursky and safety Jairus Byrd were each limited in Wednesday's practice. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore (wrist), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (hand), kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin) and cornerback Ron Brooks (foot) all did not participate. Gilmore and Goodwin each worked off to the side of practice with trainers, while Brooks was spotted on crutches after practice.

The Bills resume practice on Thursday at 3 pm in Orchard Park.
