The Buffalo Bills' offensive line is getting healthier and back together, slowly but surely.

While center Mitch Morse and tackle Conor McDermott are still officially in the concussion protocol, both were back on the field Tuesday and both in white jerseys like the rest of their offensive teammates. Up until now, both linemen had been wearing red non-contact jerseys.  

Here’s a look at Morse and others doing some drills:

Very encouraging site for Bills fans. That’s center Mitch Morse with a white jersey (no longer red) in this drill.

Here’s more Morse for you, along with a few others. Try Nsekhe is also dressed and practicing. It looks like the band is close to being back together again.

Tackle Ty Nsekhe, who has been out since last week with a knee injury, was also on the field and practicing:

Good pass blocking drill. Spencer Long then Ty Nsekhe.

Rookie Cody Ford was seen working at both guard and tackle during individual positional work, which is all the media is allowed to view.

There were some other players who were not participating:
  • Defensive end Jerry Hughes, who had some sort of brace on his right hand as he was on the stationary bike. 
  • Cornerback Cam Lewis is still in the concussion protocol.  
  • It was a veteran rest day for running back Frank Gore.  
  • Wide receiver Cole Beasley was not practicing and was working on the stationary bike. There was no official word on his situation. 
  • Punter Cory Carter did not practice due to knee soreness. 
  • Tight end Jason Croom did not practice. He had been out with a hamstring injury.
  • Cornerback Taron Johnson did not practice. He had been out with a groin injury recently.
