PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) - As the Bills prepare to break camp tomorrow, Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd is still nowhere to be found. The Bills' franchise player has skipped all of training camp in a contract dispute.
"We hope he gets in here before the season opener, but only he can tell us on that one," said Bills General Manager Doug Whaley.
So far, Byrd's camp has been quiet on when he might sign his franchise player contract. With the season opener less than three weeks away, the clock is ticking for him to return and still make an immediate impact.
"He's gonna have some ground to make up, but he's a professional. I know he'll come in here ready to work and try to contribute as soon as possible," said Whaley.
