Bills DE Schobel goes on 'did not report' list while mulling future

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills are opening training camp with Aaron Schobel on the reserve/did not report list while the veteran defensive end contemplates retirement.

The move was announced Thursday, shortly before the team's first practice in suburban Rochester. Schobel didn't report for the start of camp and has missed all of the team's offseason practices.

Earlier this week, the nine-year NFL veteran said he was leaning toward playing, but he won't make a decision until mid-August.

The Bills are holding the door open in the event that Schobel decides to play.

The team also placed safety Jon Corto (broken wrist) and linebacker Nic Harris (knee) on the active physically unable to perform list. They can be activated for practice once healthy.
