The 2017 Bills aren't oozing with star power, but they have at least one player in the spotlight: LeSean McCoy. Here's what it's like to be the star running back signing autographs after practice Thursday.

Before running back Stevan Ridley drove three hours from Mississippi to New Orleans to get a flight to Denver today, he said "I told my mom about it at Subway, had a little lunch and made my way up." Ridley had a 151-yard rushing game against the Broncos in 2012.

The Broncos just finished their walk-through practice and defensive end Derek Wolfe, who did not practice Thursday morning because of an illness, and DeMarcus Walker both participated . Walker left Thursday morning's practice due to what coach Vance Joseph called "a heat issue." Newly signed running back Stevan Ridley was also at the walk-through. The Broncos waived rookie guard Chris Muller to make a roster spot for Ridley, who was signed just after he finished a workout this afternoon.

Safety D.J. Swearinger is very communicative in the secondary. He is decisive on his calls, too. He made one today at the last second to alert safety Su'a Cravens to drop while Swearinger ran up to cover a tight end with in the flat. It worked: the play was covered.

Terrelle Pryor's ability to create space on certain routes should help him in one important category: yards after the catch. Today, after one route he had space to make a move and juked the defender.

Two players who stood out Wednesday: receivers Terrelle Pryor and Josh Doctson. Pryor consistently created separation on comebacks by getting out of his break quickly. Doctson got off the line well, ran good routes -- with good stems -- to get free. A strong first day for both.

Play of the day: The Eagles have the Carson Wentz-Alshon Jeffery connection going early. During the team's first full-squad practice of training camp, Wentz targeted Jeffery deep down the right sideline. Jeffery, surrounded by a pair of defenders, rose up to secure the catch. The young QB is now armed with some playmakers.

NFL's transaction wire for Thursday says the Bills acquired a conditional seventh-round pick in 2019 from the Chargers for quarterback Cardale Jones.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Overheard at camp: This wasn't overheard in practice. This came loud and clear from quarterback Cam Newton during his first press conference since last season. In talking about 37-year-old defensive end Julius Peppers, listed at 6-foot-7 and 287 pounds, the 6-foot-5, 246-pound Newton said, "Probably the biggest human being I've ever seen in my life on the football field. Just pound for pound.'' Newton followed that by saying cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (5-9) is "probably the smallest human being I've seen.'' He did follow this up with, "I'm just teasing.''

Overheard: One thing that caused a stir in Redskins' camp? A fan showing up in a Dallas jersey. That's a no-no in Redskins territory and fans reacted accordingly. As the fan left, another shouted: "Get him out of here! Get him out of here!" To which a policeman replied: "If you don't settle down, you'll be joining him."

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie report of camp: Nothing great from first-round pick Christian McCaffrey, but it is obvious from the number of short passes and screens being thrown in the running back's direction there are big plans for him. The crowd loves him, too. He can make a simple move and there are oohs and ahs from fans on the hill overlooking the practice field at Wofford College. Defenders can't love McCaffrey, though. He's so fast on his cuts that it leaves them grasping for air.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Best play of camp: No question it was Cam Newton's last pass of team drills. Limited on deep throws for much of the first two days, the 2015 NFL MVP uncorked about a 45-yard pass down the left sideline that tight end Greg Olsen caught in stride. Newton was pleased, running with his arms spread line an airplane in search of Olsen to celebrate. He celebrated more with backup quarterback Joe Webb on the sideline. Coach Ron Rivera liked it, noting it was a good ending for Newton after he struggled a bit with his accuracy early. "He's working that timing back,'' Rivera said. "We'll talk about whether we'll increase the reps tomorrow or not. His throws were pretty good as we finished up practice, so that was good to see.''

First apparent injury situation of Bills training camp: offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson heads to locker room with members of training staff. Unclear what happened.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie report: Defensive end Johnathan Allen worked with the first team for a handful of snaps. On one rep, he used quickness to initially beat a double team and then finished with power. Linebacker Ryan Anderson showed his strength on one bull rush, knocking tackle Vinston Painter to the ground. He was more effective using power when rushing.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chargers announced they have waived QB Eli Jenkins to make room for QB Cardale Jones on 90-man roster.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Best play: Second-year corner Kendall Fuller made a diving interception off Kirk Cousins on a deep post to receiver Brian Quick. Fuller had placed himself in good position to the inside and when the ball was overthrown, he laid out. Fuller looked good during the spring workouts as well. He's been working as the No. 3 corner.

Sammie Coates (knee, PUP list) says he's working to get back in the next few weeks.

The Cardinals announced that they've signed veteran LB Philip Wheeler to a one-year contract. Looks like he's on the lower field going through some warm-up drills wearing No. 57.
