ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — After getting a day of rest Wednesday, Leodis McKelvin, Jairus Byrd, Marcell Dareus, Spencer Johnson and Kyle Williams were all back at it Thursday as the team prepares for this weekend's game with Seattle in Toronto.
The Bills will need as many of those guys as possible. A game with the Seahawks means facing former Bills running back Marshawn Lynch. Lynch ranks 2nd in the NFL in rushing, setting a new career high with 1,266 yards on the ground. Drafted by the Bills back in 2007, Lynch was shipped out of Buffalo early in 2010.
"I thought he was a very good running back when he was here and I think he is a very good running back still today," said Bills head coach Chan Gailey. "He has been extremely productive there and he is running hard. He seems to feel a lot more comfortable there."
"He fits well in what they're doing, making that one cut and then getting down hill," said defensive tackle Kyle Williams." So we are going to have to get on and off of blocks, with him it seems he gets going early and gets stronger as the game goes on, so it will be an all day deal."
