The Buffalo Bills announced the signing of Dan Herron on Thursday, bringing back the former Ohio State running back for a second stint with the team.
Herron, a sixth-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2012, played with the Bills and the Indianapolis Colts in 2015. The 5-10, 212-pound Ohio State product has played in 35 career games, starting three, and racking up 468 yards and one touchdown on 112 carries. He has also caught 31 passes for 277 yards.
Now Herron returns to Buffalo. Part of the reason behind the Bills signing Herron might have to do with them only having one healthy running back at practice on Wednesday, as McCoy, Williams, Wilder Jr. and Gillislee were all held out due to injuries.
There’s no guarantee Herron makes the roster, but in the meantime he’ll be a useful and healthy player for the Bills that is familiar with the playbook and can contribute at practice.
The Bills’ season starts Sunday, Sept. 11 with a trip to Baltimore to take on the Ravens.
It was reported that New England Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski attended the team of mandatory Minicamp in this Saturday for the last week, but did not explicitly revealed why he has not participated in the training.
“I’m doing other things, participating fully with what the coaches have me doing, so we’re all good, we’re all on the same page.” Rob Gronkowski told reporters.
On May 26th, Gronkowski did not join Patriots’ Open to media Organized Team practice Activity (OTA) either.
Not long ago, one insider disclosed that Gronkowski has always been stayed at Gillette stadium, behind the scenes training team. His teammates are carefully treated for a small injury which was not thought to be a long-term injury.
On Saturday, when asked if he would be ready to take part in the training camp at the end of July, Gronkowski said, “Oh yeah.”
When asked if did not take part in the spring training is the reason of prevention, Gronkowski said, “I was present, but I was doing other things, as coach would say, which is all good. I’m good.”
After Gronkowski in 2012 and 2013 season respectively with forearm injuries and knee injuries, Patriots in recent years often do not permit him to participate the training. In the past two seasons, Gronkowski missing two games just due to injury.
