Bills without nine at Tuesday's OTAs

While the events surrounding Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus have been dominating the headlines over the past 24 hours, the team also stepped back on the field for their fourth day of Organized Team Activities. The Bills and Dareus each came to the conclusion that it would be best if he didn't attend OTAs over the next two weeks, and the defender was joined by eight others on the roster that didn't practice.

Dareus was one of six players that were not spotted on Tuesday, joined by defensive end Mario Williams, defensive end Manny Lawson, defensive tackle Alan Branch, tight end Mike Caussin and cornerback Darius Robinson. Caussin has spent some time with trainers during previous OTA sessions, while Robinson suffered an injury last week which led to his absence on the field on Friday.

Through the first three days, Williams was primarily working on the field during positional drills and taking occasional reps with the team during 11-on-11s. He was not on the field in any capacity on Tuesday. Lawson and Branch have each been absent from all offseason workouts to this point. Head coach Doug Marrone indicated that he has had no contact with either player on their absences.

Running backs Bryce Brown and Ronnie Wingo, along with offensive guard J.J. 'Unga all were around the field, but did not participate in team drills on Tuesday. The trio worked along the side with trainers for the majority of practice.

The Bills get back on the practice field on Wednesday for the day five of OTAs.

Marrone needs to ditch that goofy looking hat. Too much like Jauron. Plus it just looks plain ridiculous.

helping players out is one thing.
But being your daddy and mommie is another. Look at this way for a moment. The players who are getting in trouble off the feild. You got problems right. Don't forget who gave you those problems. That right yourself take a long look in the mirror. And then ask yourself this question? Where do the hell you want to be from five years from now. Jail or six feet deep or playing football and staying the hell out of trouble. You work hard as hell to get where you are now. And you can have all that taking away from you. In a split second. We just hope you make the right choice. You make another mistake and you might have to pack your bags. Do you know how many people your age. Would love to be where you are right now. Here a clue pick up a news paper. And read about who going to jail. And the death section i am sure at one time in their life. they also had dreams too. the ones in jail will get another chance in life. But the ones who are gone don't get that chance. And if don't don't have god on their side. Don't get to see what we call heaven.
