HOF Thomas joins Bills in building playground
LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (AP) — Thurman Thomas can still carry a load. And the Buffalo Bills' Hall of Fame running back showed he's pretty handy with a shovel, too.
Knee-deep in mulch, Thomas joined numerous Bills players and team staff — including CEO Russ Brandon — by braving the rain and mud to help build a playground for preschoolers outside of Buffalo.
The Bills used their off-day in the midst of a bye week to give back in building the playground in conjunction with the NFL-United Way Hometown Huddle and Play 60 programs. It's part of a league-wide initiative designed to promote health and fitness in youngsters.
The Bills (3-4) will practice on Wednesday, before taking a four-day break. They return next week to prepare for a game at Houston on Nov. 4.
