After a delay to their offseason schedule due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Bills players finally have started to get on the field and hit each other. With preseason games still canceled, each day of practice held in Orchard Park is that much more important before the team’s season opener against the Jets on Sept. 13.
On Sunday, the Bills had their final practice of training camp that will allow media access. Regular season standards are set to begin on Monday so we won’t see much more from the team before Saturday when the team has to cut their roster down to 53 players.
With that, here are three takeaways from Day 10 of Bills training camp on Sunday:
Tough finish for Allen
As the Bills wrapped up training camp viewing, it was reportedly a tough day for their quarterback. During the team’s scrimmage last week, he had mixed reviews. Allen did have some good highlights there, including more than 300 reported yards of passing… but it was against the team’s backup defense. On Sunday, WROC-TV highlighted several tough plays for Allen when he was facing Buffalo’s starting defense again. During team drills, Allen hit cornerback Tre’Davious Whtie for what should’ve been an interception and then threw a ball into triple coverage at one point. There really should be no reasoning for doing so… at that point, try to throw the ball away? Allen needs to improve on such decision making. Playing “hero ball” is what got him in trouble over the first two years of his career.
