A long-awaited day has finally arrived for Buffalo Bills players, coaches and their fans. The Bills will become one of the NFL’s last teams to kick off training camp tonight when their opening practice begins on at 6:10 p.m.

The Buffalo Bills are holding their training camp at St. John Fisher College for the 14th consecutive season, but there are many aspects about this year’s training camp for Bills fans to look forward to. Most notably, it will be the first training camp under the regime of new head coach Doug Marrone, and a training camp that will feature an intense quarterback competition between EJ Manuel and Kevin Kolb.

Full training camp schedule: The Buffalo Bills are holding 18 practices during training camp, 15 of which will be open to the public. Click on the link to see the full schedule!

Questions to Answer in Training Camp

5 Things To Watch For — The Bills have many unanswered questions going into training camp. Eric Samulski examined five of them that could affect the team in training camp.

While the Buffalo Bills currently have 85 players on their roster who have reported to training camp, one player who has not is free safety Jairus Byrd. Should we expect Byrd to be back, and when? Dan Hope explored that possibility. How could missing training camp affect his season? Eric took a closer look at that.

The Bills aren’t the only team in the AFC East with questions to answer in training camp. In June, Eric took a look at the two biggest questions facing each offense and defense in the division this summer.
