Bills place three starters on non-participation lists to start camp

Training camp is on the way for the Buffalo Bills this weekend, but they had quite a few transactions to announce just two days before the team is set to report to St. John Fisher College. Three normal starters on the team and one major contributor will all start training camp on the sidelines with different designations.

Linebacker Kiko Alonso (Active/Non-Football Injury), left tackle Cordy Glenn (Active/Non-Football Illness), cornerback Leodis McKelvin (Active/Physically Unable to Perform) and defensive tackle Alan Branch (Active/Non-Football Illness) all were not deemed to be ready for the start of training camp. The Bills also placed seventh-round draft pick and rookie linebacker Randell Johnson on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

The important thing to note at this time of year is that any of these players can be taken off their respective lists if given clearance by the team's medical staff. Alonso will likely miss the remainder of the year due to tearing his ACL earlier this month. Glenn missed some time at the mandatory minicamp due to an illness, but it isn't clear if the same illness is what is keeping him out to start camp.

The team also announced the signing of linebacker Stevenson Sylvester to the active roster. Sylvester is entering his fifth professional season after spending his first four years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. To make room on the roster, the Bills have released tight end Mike Caussin.

Its just part of football.
Ijuries are going to happen in this sport. But it brings the next man up to see what he can do. It would be nice for a change if we can get to the start of the season injury free. But things happens that a player or coach just can't fix right off the back. So for the back up players this is your chance to make the team. lets go to work boys.
