PITTSFORD, N.Y. (July 30, 2005) -- Buffalo Bills cornerback Kevin Thomas was placed on the physically unable to perform list July 30 as the team opened training camp.
Thomas, entering his fourth year with the Bills, has been bothered by a right knee injury since spring minicamps.
"He's on the PUP list until he gets healed up a little better," Buffalo coach Mike Mularkey said.
There is no date set for Thomas' return.
Thomas, a sixth-round draft pick in 2002, played in all 16 games for the Bills last season -- making one start. He has appeared in 34 consecutive games for the Bills, dating to the 2002 season. In 38 career games, he has one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
While Thomas is the most seriously injured Bills player, three offensive linemen sat out drills July 30.
Ben Sobieski and Ross Tucker attended but did not take part. Mike Williams participated in the morning but sat out the evening with a hamstring injury.
Williams and Tucker, who has a back injury, are day-to-day. Mularkey didn't say why Sobieski was held out of practice.
