Marcell Dareus returns to Bills practice

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus returned to practice Thursday after being excused from Wednesday's practice.

Dareus missed Wednesday's practice for a family matter.

Meanwhile, linebacker Ty Powell (ankle) and wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) did not practice for a second consecutive day Thursday.

Long snapper Garrison Sanborn (knee) was on the practice field again Thursday after being a limited participant Wednesday. The Bills worked out long snappers Charley Hughlett and Kevin McDermott on Wednesday as a precaution, ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates reported.
