Players from local college football teams are invited as well as players who grew up locally but played college football elsewhere.The headliner was University at Buffalo Bulls quarterback Tyree Jackson. The big-bodied quarterback has all the physical tools to be a successful NFL quarterback but is labeled as a project by NFL scouts. Also in town was wide receiver Anthony Johnson. While he wasn’t expected to attend the pro day, WIVB spoke with him at Buffalo’s Spring Game and reported he did participate. He’s expected to go on Day 3 of the draft.Hamburg native and quarterback prospect Jake Dolegala was in attendance. The Central Connecticut quarterback has all the physical gifts and could sneak into the back end of the draft.Defensive end Chuck Harris and cornerback Cam Lewis also were also expected to take part in the pro day, according to The Buffalo News. GREEN BAY, Wis. — This two-week trip through the NFC North was supposed to be one of the toughest stretches of the Buffalo Bills‘ schedule.At Minnesota. At Green Bay. After two double-digit losses to open the season, the Bills seemed destined to have a miserable time in the Midwest.The outlook has changed after a stunning 27-6 win over the Vikings.More Packers coverage from FOX Sports WisconsinPhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Packers rookie Gary’s biggest critic is himselfTop Tweets: Former Badger TJ Watt has impressive four-year transformationPHOTOS: 2019 Green Bay Packers training campPackers’ Rodgers, LaFleur ironing out offense, building chemistryIt’s off to Lambeau Field now for resurgent Buffalo (1-2) to face the still out-of-sorts Packers (1-1-1) on Sunday.“The Minnesota film is a big difference,” Packers receiver Davante Adams said. “You see, the urgency kind of went up. They were more physical.”One road win as a heavy underdog might be passed off as a fluke. A second victory in another tough road environment might make a lasting impression.“On the scoreboard, I understand what people see,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “The biggest thing for us is that we A) move forward, and B) that we embrace that growth mindset of getting better every rep Thomas Sweeney Buffalo Bills Jersey , every day.”This weekend might be an ideal time to try to beat Green Bay. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has played relatively well, especially given he is playing through a left knee injury. But the Packers have been prone to stretches of inconsistency on both sides of the ball. So far, they have rallied from a 20-point deficit to beat the Bears; lost a big lead in the fourth quarter in a tie with Minnesota; and trailed by 18 at the half of last week’s 31-17 loss to Washington.“I’m not making any excuses, but you kind of go through some growing pains each and every year,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “But this is a great group as far as their attitude and energy, we just have to stay after it.”Some other notes and things to watch:BRACING FOR ITPlaying with a brace on his left knee, Rodgers doesn’t have his usual mobility outside the pocket, though he was able to move around a little more last week. One problem last week: uncharacteristic drops by receivers, including two by Randall Cobb.Rodgers was held out of practice at midweek the previous two weeks so he could focus on rehabbing his injury, while returning for the team’s’ light workouts on Saturdays.Rodgers missed practice Wednesday again, but the quarterback was cleared to practice on Thursday, which is the team’s most intensive day of on-field preparation. Rodgers still does his usual extensive work with receivers in the film room, too.“I’m one who always loves being out there because you’re not just competing but you’re working on things with the guys and working on the game plan,” Rodgers said. “That’s the trade-off – not being out there for practice but the trade-off is I can actually get out there and play on Sunday.”ROOKIE ARMThe Buffalo offense remains a work in progress with rookie first-round pick QB Josh Allen preparing to make his third career start and second on the road. He took over two series into the second half in a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore after Nathan Peterman threw two interceptions and oversaw an offense that managed one first down through 10 possessions.The Bills traded up five spots to select Allen out of Wyoming, despite questions about his accuracy. Otherwise, he’s a strong-armed and mobile player who showed off his abilities against Minnesota. He scored twice rushing and added another passing in the first half.7 Gallery:Upon Further Review: Packers at RedskinsON THE LINEThe Bills’ defense rebounded in a big way against Minnesota, led by end Jerry Hughes. He wreaked havoc in the Minnesota backfield with a sack, two quarterback hits and a forced fumble. The Bills’ four sacks against Minnesota were the most since getting six in a Week 2 loss last season at Carolina.The Packers are dealing with injuries on the right side of the line. Tackle Bryan Bulaga was limited at midweek with a back injury that knocked him out of last week’s loss Infant Devin Singletary Jersey , though the veteran appeared to be in good shape to play against Buffalo. Guard Justin McCray missed practice at midweek with a shoulder injury.SEEKING HYDEMicah Hyde returns to Lambeau for the first time since leaving the Packers as a free agent in 2016. He has gone from a jack-of-all-trades in the Green Bay secondary into a solid player at safety for the Bills.“We know Micah Hyde. He’s going to be everywhere. His instinctiveness and awareness (are) as high as it comes,” McCarthy said.CLAY’S DAYKeep an eye on Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who has drawn roughing-the-passer flags in each of the first three games. The calls, especially over the last two weeks, have raised questions among players on both sides of the ball around the league: Just what constitutes a legal hit on a quarterback?“Yeah, I’m with Clay, man. This is frustrating,” Hyde said. “That’s not even me, but I know what type of player, what type of person Clay is, and that’s just bogus.”13 Gallery:PHOTOS: Packers at RedskinsPACKERS-BILLS CAPSULESunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE – Packers by 12½RECORD video station.
