Please pass the pigskin

Travis Henry made a bit of a comeback after having dropped two kickoffs earlier in the week, he was back with Nate Clements again, and fielded the ball without difficulty.

Henry also drew praise from head coach Gregg Williams during a running play in a nine-on-seven drill. Though it seemed half the defense took a shot at the Bills' running back behind the line of scrimmage, he bounced off their hits, plus another past the line and continued 20 yards or so downfield, as he is trained to do.

Not long after that, Henry laid a punishing blow on undrafted free-agent strong safety Milton Proctor while carrying the ball.

Henry even had a chance to throw a pass, for former University of Tennessee teammate Peerless Price, but it was incomplete.

It was a practice, in fact, with a far heavier emphasis on passing than running the football. When seven-on-seven drills began, Drew Bledsoe dropped back and lofted a pass far downfield. Running under it, past defenders Antoine Winfield and Billy Jenkins, was fullback Larry Centers. He showed he had something left in his 34-year-old legs.

Among the red zone highlights was a leaping touchdown catch by another veteran, Charles Johnson.

The Bills' scheduled afternoon practice was merely a special teams walk-through, closed to the public.
