Bills CB Ron Brooks (foot) is making good progress as his broken foot is healed and he's begun workouts on his own.

Brooks was placed on injured reserve at the start of the season and designated as the player to return to the active roster. He isn't eligible to return to practice with the team until six weeks have elapsed, which would be October 17th, and can't be added to the active roster for a game until October 31st, making the Bills' Week 9 game in Houston the first game he'd be eligible to dress and play.

Bills agreed to terms with No. 124 overall pick CB Ron Brooks on a four-year contract.

Brooks is the pick the Bills received for trading Lee Evans to the Ravens. A good-sized nickel or dime corner with 4.37 jets, Brooks is billed as a special teams demon after starting just three games at LSU. The Bills love his punt-blocking ability and coverage skills.
