ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Bills starting cornerback Terrence McGee hurt his right arm when he tumbled to the turf while defending receiver Terrell Owens during a voluntary minicamp practice Wednesday.
McGee did not return after entering the trainer's room, and coach Dick Jauron did not have an injury update.
During team drills, McGee was shadowing Owens when they went up for a pass. Owens initially caught the ball but had it ripped out by McGee. Owens partially landed on the cornerback when they fell.
