The Bills were dealing with a couple of non-injury related absences at organized team activities on Wednesday, per ESPN.com.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and wide receiver Percy Harvin were both absent on Wednesday. Coach Rex Ryan said that injuries did not play a factor in their absences.

"No, there's something else [besides an injury]," Ryan said. "We'll let them address it, if they want to."

Bills DT Marcell Dareus in wait and see mode over contract talks
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus said he is eager to work out a contract extension with the Bills, but he knows he must perform on the field regardless of his contract status, reports the team's official website.

"We'll wait and see what the Bills do," Dareus said. "It weighs on me heavily. Heavily. I've got to go out there and really perform and do what I have to do, which I always do—really have fun with it. Whatever the outcome is, is the outcome. However they want to play it is how they play it. I'm excited. I'm excited for the upcoming year."

Dareus will be suspended for the season opener as a result of an off-field incident last year and he said he's ready to move on.

"I'm happy we can finally move forward. It's been hanging over my head for a while," he said. "Just happy we can move forward and I can prepare myself for the season and just happy to be with my friends, my guys, my real family. Just really feeling a lot better right now."

Bills DT Marcell Dareus suspended by NFL for banned substance
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Bills will be hosting Indianapolis in Week 1 of the 2015 season. But Buffalo defensive tackle Marcell Dareus will not be participating.

Dareus has been suspended by the league for the opener for violating its substance abuse policy, Fox Sports has reported. He released the following statement that confirmed it.

Last year, I made a mistake involving possession of a banned substance. The NFL's discipline for this conduct is part of the drug policy, and I apologize to my family, my teammates, the entire Bills organization and Bills fans that I will miss one game as a result of my mistake. I will work intensely that week and will be extremely happy to contribute to a win in Week 2 for the Bills.

The loss of Dareus is significant, at least for that game. He racked up 48 tackles and 10 sacks a year ago.
