Come back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as I choose my five favorite Buffalo Bills and NFL Draft links to share. Feel free to submit your own links in the comments.
After a taking a well deserved day off on Saturday, our Bills Camp Reporter Chris Hooker was back at St. John Fisher for Sunday’s night practice under the lights. Here is his report! The Buffalo Bills held their first night practice of training camp last night to a sold out crowd at St. John Fisher College.

Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson was relieved to learn he will miss only a few days of practice after being diagnosed with a strained tendon in his right leg.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Giggling uncontrollably, Marcell Dareus was still having a difficult time containing his excitement Sunday, a day after getting a first glimpse of the Buffalo Bills’ revamped, high-priced defensive line’s potential.

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer has been dismissed from the Arkansas State squad for violating team rules. Arkansas State coach Gus Malzahn announced the decision Saturday, saying: “I am truly disappointed that it didn’t work out here at ASU for Mike. I wish Mike nothing but the best in the future.”
Editor’s Note: Whiler Dyer is technically a 2014 prospect many speculate he will move down a division in order to play immediately in 2012 and then declare for the 2013 NFL Draft. There was recently a rumor that Dyer was already looking to transfer after his NCAA appeal for a waiver was turned down.
