ELMA, NY (WKBW.com) Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick led a group of more then 30 players onto the practice field on Monday morning for an informal workout in Elma. The workout, organized by the players, is one of several scheduled for the week.

The sessions, which included stretching and agility work, are aimed at building team chemistry during the NFL lockout. The current lockout

The group also included Lee Evans, David Nelson, Geoff Hangartner, Chris Kelsay, Leodis McKelvin, George Wilson, Aaron Maybin, Levi Brown, Brian Brohm, and a group of undrafted free agents. Also on hand members of the Bills 2011 draft class including Kelvin Sheppard, and Da' Norris Searcy. First round pick Marcell Dareus was not in attendance.
