Bills LB Sheppard hurt; to miss at least a week

Share This Story



Buffalo Bills rookie linebacker Kelvin Sheppard will miss at least a week of training camp after hurting his right leg.

Coach Chan Gailey provided the update on Monday, a day after the rookie third-round pick out of LSU was hurt. Gailey didn't go into detail on the injury, except to say the player pulled a muscle.

Sheppard has been highly regarded by the Bills' coaching staff, and was expected to compete for a starting job.

Defensive back Domonic Cook limped off the field during practice Monday. Gailey says the undrafted rookie free agent out of Buffalo ''tweaked'' his knee. The coach did not have a prognosis because Cook was still being evaluated.

Fourth-year cornerback Reggie Corner made his practice debut after being activated off the physically-unable-to-perform list. He opened camp on the list while recuperating from an undisclosed injury.
