Spiller then showed his tremendous burst on a running play to the right. As he broke past the line of scrimmage, linebacker Donovan Woods was late getting over, but grabbed a piece of Spiller’s red undershirt. A strip of the shirt tore off in Woods’ hand as Spiller blew past him.
“It felt great,” Spiller said. “I’ve still got to get my timing down. First day in pads, so you really don’t know what to expect. But the first day went pretty smooth.”
“He’s got a lot of catching up to do, not only mentally but physically,” Gailey said. “But I mean you could see the explosiveness that he’s always had.”
“I’m excited, honestly, because I feel like he’s a big impact player on our offense and our team,” Edwards said. “The potential is all there. He’s got all the talent in the world, and it’s just a matter of us blocking for him.”
Wilson referred to Spiller as “one of the best players in the country,” and someone who could provide a spark to what he called a “dull team.” Buffalo’s offense has ranked 25th or worst in yards the past seven seasons.
NOTES: WR Roscoe Parrish was hurt 90 minutes into practice when he pulled up short while running a route. He angrily walked off the field, throwing his shoulder pads to the ground, on his way to the locker room. Gailey wouldn’t divulge the nature of the injury except to say “It’s not bad,” and Parrish should miss only a few days. … LB Chris Kelsay practiced on a limited basis for the first time since hurting his right shoulder on the first day of camp. … DT Kyle Williams missed both practices Friday, a day after hurting his right hand.
