Quarterbacks struggle in Wednesday's minicamp practice

Quarterbacks struggle in Wednesday's minicamp practice

Published Jun. 17, 2015 10:17 p.m. ET

The Buffalo Bills are looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 1999. If they have any chance of doing so they will need to find stability at the quarterback position after Kyle Orton retired. 

EJ Maneul, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Matt Simms are all contending to be the leading man in Buffalo but each has questions marks preventing them from being the favorites heading into the 2015 season.

As the team continued their mandatory minicamp on Wednesday, the quarterbacks had a rough go of it in practice. According to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News, the quarterbacks combined to attempt 22 passes going 4 for 11 for 22 yards, one interception, eight sacks, one defensive penalty and two offensive penalties. 

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman didn't seem too concerned and explained the poor outing by the quarterbacks.

"A few drops here, a few protection issues. There were some good plays, some bad plays. Very similar to yesterday. We didn't throw the ball downfield that much today as we did yesterday, though."

While the statistics are concerning, fans need to remember that this is minicamp and there is a long time until the start of the season. Furthermore, the team is learning an entire new offense with a lot of new faces at the skill positions as well.
