He participated in drills with other defensive backs but was held out of team drills.||||||| Leonhard said he hopes he can practice in team portions when the Broncos return from a day off Thursday. He also said he'd like to play in one of Denver's final two preseason games, but he's sure the training staff will "protect me from myself" and take things slowly.

Leonhard received a chance to take a physical and meet with some former teammates, but not much else at Buffalo Bills training camp on Friday.||||||| Coach Chan Gailey said he didn't watch the player's workout and did not meet with Leonhard during his two-day visit. Gailey then referred questions regarding Leonhard to general manager Buddy Nix. Leonhard is a seven-year veteran who spent the past three seasons emerging as a fan favorite with the New York Jets.
