Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch has missed the first week of Organized Team Activities.
However, unlike outside linebacker Aaron Schobel Lynch has some leway on how much time he can miss.
The reason is that Lynch is not switching positions like Schobel would be, so all that Lynch really has to learn in the vocabulary of the playbook and what he does on certain plays.
That doesn’t mean that he can skip all of the voluntary OTA’s and attend only the mandatory ones without consequences. The reason being running back Fred Jackson has been in attendance this week as well as rookie running back CJ Spiller.
In the end, if Lynch plans to be a long term starting running back he better gets his rear to One Bills drive as soon as possible.
