When Bills coach Sean McDermott disclosed to reporters the hamstring injury suffered by defensive tackle Marcell Dareus on Saturday morning, McDermott expressed hope that Dareus would be able to practice that same day. He didn’t.

On Sunday morning, Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier told reporters that Dareus will miss another day of practice.

Via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, Frazier said the Bills are simply being cautious with Dareus, and that the team has nothing to be “overly concerned about.”

Injuries happen routinely in camp, with hamstring strains being a common condition for guys working to get in football shape. The challenge becomes giving the hamstring enough rest, or the problem will linger, and potentially become aggravated.

  1. Different story than you wrote yesterday basically saying he wasn’t in shape and that is how he got the hamstring injury, when the coach said he was impressed how in shape Dareus was.

  2. Dareus missing practice is not a big story. It means the 4 starters on the D-Line won’t get as quick a start working as a unit in the return to a 4 – 3 defense. But all of the starters have played this before. Someone else will get some first team reps for a few days. The return of the 4-3 moves this team back into Wild Card territory.

  5. I predict this hamstring problem will persist all season long.
    He will be in-n-out of the line-up, and be placed on season ending IR in December.

    This time next summer the excuse machine will be cranked up about how Dareus is in even better shape and out to avenge the 2017 season.

    Over 50 years I’ve been a Bills fan.
    Know the expression “meet the new boss, same as the old boss?”
    Same general rule applies here. “Meet player X, same as previous player X.”

  6. No O-line ? 3 pro-bowlers on that line that led the league in rushing the last 2 years.
    PFF rating the Bills line # 1 at inside and outside rushing.
    QB had a 99 rating in 2015, and also went the probowl. Instead of adding multiple aliases, why don’t you research your material before you post.
