Eager to return to practice, Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has little time for questions.

Marrone provided mostly blunt one-word or one-sentence answers before practice Tuesday, when they Bills returned to training camp following a preseason-opening loss.

Aside from the loss, there was nothing new Marrone said that stuck out after reviewing the film of Buffalo's 17-13 defeat to the New York Giants in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, on Sunday.

And "getting better" was the only message Marrone said he had for his players.

If that's the case then the Bills have plenty of work ahead, and little time to get it done during a short turnaround between games.

Buffalo will practice only twice this week before traveling to play the Carolina Panthers on Friday.
