Listenbee, the team's sixth-round pick in April who missed most of the team's spring work due to pelvic inflammation following double sports hernia surgery in March, is hoping to be cleared for upcoming training camp practices, BuffaloBills.com reports.
“Rehab is going pretty good,” said the rookie. “We’re playing it by ear so every day is a different day. Hopefully I get better soon and I can practice the first day, but we’ll see how it goes.”
The team expects Brown to be a main defensive playmaker this season as the starting middle linebacker who should see the field almost every play, BuffaloBills.com reports. "This Preston Brown is going to be a star," new defensive assistant Rob Ryan said. "He's been fantastic. He's a vocal guy, he's extremely smart. He knows the defense. He knows the ins and outs now, so he’s really going to grow in this system."
Easley, who shattered his kneecap in three places during Week 16, is mostly recovered and is hoping to be on the field for at least part of training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports.
"Based on the original prognosis, they said six-to-nine months, so we're getting close to that point," said Easley. "So it'll be interesting to see where I stand in a couple of weeks. I feel that will determine where things go."
While Watkins (foot) says he's "feeling great," he's still unsure as to when he'll be able to return to the practice field, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. "I don't know how much I'm gonna be doing or when I'm gonna be on the field, but I'm definitely going to be active and engaged," Watkins said Tuesday. "I don't know what the schedule is like with me being on the field competing-wise, but I'm right where I need to be at -- feeling good, healthy. Nothing is bothering me. Just really prepare for whatever they do."
Goodwin strained his hamstring during the trials for the U.S. Olympic long jump team, ESPN.com reports. "I strained my hamstring a little bit yesterday," Goodwin said. "I did better than I expected today. I didn't expect to jump six times. I thought I would come in and do one jump. But after the first jump, I thought I would be pretty good. I just pushed through it. That's the football part of me coming through."
