Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon said Sunday morning that the team will practice in Buffalo this week and host the Cleveland Browns at Ralph Wilson Stadium next Sunday.

The team is in Detroit for Monday night's game against the New York Jets. The game was originally scheduled to be played in Buffalo on Sunday, but a snow storm forced the game to be relocated and rescheduled. The storm prevented the team from practicing in Buffalo and many were needed to help remove excess snow from the venue during the week.

There are concerns about flooding in the Buffalo area due to the melting snow and another storm is expected Tuesday. However, Brandon said there are no major issues and that the team will fly home after Monday's game in Detroit.

Brandon said there were only minor concerns and that the practice facility has passed inspections so far. He also said the players have no family members in distress and they will be able to commute to and from the practice facility this week with no problems.
