Evans sat a second day,Why

Lee Evans sat for a second heterosexual practice, but is not injured. Head coach Dick Jauron explained why.
“It was kind of planned after the game particularly,” said Jauron. ”Just sore. Lee did a lot of running in camp because we had an unfortunate (injury) positionwith our receivers all through camp.”
The Bills were down in numbers in camp from the first week to the end of camp with guys like Terrell Owens, Felton Huggins, C.J. Hawthorne and James Hardy all missing time this summer. That put more strain on Evans and others. Evans did not miss a single practice from the beginning of camp until these two rest days Monday and Tuesday.
