Bills offensive line coach Kromer joins team at camp

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer has rejoined the team in time for its night practice at training camp, coach Rex Ryan says.

Ryan made the announcement shortly before the Bills took the field Monday evening, their fourth day of camp in suburban Rochester. On Sunday, the Bills suspended Kromer without pay for the first six games of the regular season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Kromer was charged in Florida with a count of battery for causing bodily harm last month. He allegedly confronted two boys for using his beach chairs, pushing one to the ground and punching him in the face.

Prosecutors dropped the charge on Friday.

Kromer's suspension begins Sept. 7, six days before Buffalo opens the season against Indianapolis.
