Bills running back Hairston likely done for season

It only took one practice for training camp 2009 to claim its first victim.

Bills running back Justise Hairston is expected to miss the season after sustaining a knee injury in Buffalo’s first practice Saturday.

“That was so disappointing for the young man in literally a walk
through and it was so freakish,” coach Dick Jauron said Sunday. “It involved no contact
at all.”

Hairston was a sixth-round pick of New England in 2007, but had previously failed to make a team’s active roster.  He also spent time with the Colts. 

The Bills suffered another injury on their first day, albeit a minor one.  Defensive tackle Marcus Stroud is expected to miss the next 5-7 days of camp with a hamstring injury.

    Yeah, I’m willing to make a bet on how bad Stroud’s “hamstring” is. Big Boy just probably wanted out of the 2-a-day portion of camp.

    Stroud may be OK. A lot of the older lineman seem to get some mysterious injuries early in camp. I am pretty sure that’s why the Bengals let Willie Anderson, Levi Jones and Rudi Johnson go. Injuries that were too bad to practice with but would clear up by gameday. If these coaches stop playing the vets that pull this stuff it would put a stop to it.
