Bills open informal workouts in suburban Buffalo



ELMA, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson brought the coolers full of bottled water and Gatorade. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick brought the laughs, joking he specifically elected to wear a gray T-shirt because it best shows him off sweating.

Fitzpatrick, though, did manage to work up a lather as he and Jackson were among about 35 Bills — plus a handful of undrafted rookie free agents — taking part in a two-hour informal workout at a suburban Buffalo sports complex on Monday. It was the first of five daily workouts the Bills have organized while they join the rest of their locked-out colleagues waiting for the NFL labor dispute to be resolved.

The workouts were limited to running drills and a 45-minute weightlifting period.
