The Bills did not practice on Thursday. In the team’s most-recent practice the offense responded to some good showings by the defense early in camp to have a big day of their own.

Back at stage one on Friday.

There were many reports of the defense having a good time again. Specifically, they had some interceptions. Safety Jordan Poyer had one of the first pass of practice, according to WGR-550. On that play, cornerback Dane Jackson tipped the pass. Another interception came from safety Damar Hamlin and when Hyde was hurt, he also took the ball away.

The Bills offense wasn’t having a good time with those interceptions. The red zone didn’t go much better.

According to Buffalo Plus, the starting offense had seven chances at the end zone on one occasion. They only scored once and it was a scramble by quarterback Josh Allen.

On the plus side: rookie cornerback Kaiir Elam broke up two passes aimed at Stefon Diggs during that sequence. That’s a great sign.
