The Bills were once again missing Marcell Dareus on the practice field Thursday.  But this time, it was a for a new groin injury and not the hamstring that had kept him out for three games.

“My groin’s been acting up,” Dareus said, then added “it’s to be determined right now” if he’ll be able to play at Seattle Monday night.  “Still working with it, still working at it.  Trying to get to the point where I can go.”

Dareus was one of seven players to not participate in Thursday’s session.  The others were LB Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring), DL Corbin Bryant (shoulder), RB Reggie Bush (groin), OT Cordy Glenn (ankle), WR Brandon Tate (concussion protocol), and LB Lerentee McCray (knee).  It’s important to note this week’s Thursday practice is essentially a usual Wednesday due to the team playing on Monday night and the practice schedule being pushed back a day.  That’s when many players get an extra day to heal or rest with even minor issues.

There was good news, however, as far as practice participation.

LeSean McCoy was there, albeit on a limited basis as he still recovers from a hamstring injury.  The running back says he feels good, gave an indication that he believes he will play Monday night in Seattle, but said “I got some time.  Each day at a time I’ll progress and get better and better.  We’ll see later on through the week.”

Along with Shady, TE Charles Clay (ankle), WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion), LB Jerry Hughes (hand), and WR Robert Woods (foot) were also all limited participants.

The team practiced indoors Thursday due to inclement weather in Orchard Park.  Wide receiver Percy Harvin and newly signed safety Sergio Brown participated with the team for the first time.  Video below:
