Orchard Park, NY (WGR 550) -- While the Buffalo Bills continued their preparations for their Week Three showdown against the New York Jets, at least one player on the roster is making some progress in his hopeful return from an injury.
Reserve interior lineman Doug Legursky was back on the practice field Thursday in a limited capacity, marking his second straight day of work with his teammates. Legursky had been sidelined by a knee injury for the past two weeks. He was initially injured in the team's final preseason contest against the Detroit Lions.
Safety Jairus Byrd continued along in a limited role at practice Thursday, but didn't take any meaningful reps with the defense during positional drills. He once again participated with the scout team while recovering from plantar fasciitis in both feet.
Four players remained inactive during Thursday's practice on the grass field at One Bills Drive. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore (wrist), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (hand), kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin) and cornerback Ron Brooks (foot) all did not participate with the rest of the team in the session.
Gilmore and Goodwin, however, did some conditioning work with trainers while practice was going on. It's the second straight day each player has done so.
