McCargo, Nelson doubtful

After failing to practice on Friday Bills DT John McCargo and TE Shawn Nelson are both doubtful for Sunday’s game.

McCargo injured his calf in practice on Thursday, but his status is very much up in the air for Sunday. Nelson’s shoulder is a bit tougher to peg. Nelson practiced on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday as the coaching staff had him practicing without pads before not practicing at all Friday.

But Nelson told Buffalobills.com that his shoulder feels a lot better now than it did earlier in the week. So keeping contact on that shoudler to a minimum has perhaps paid off. But being listed as doubtful suggests otherwise.

If Nelson can’t go Buffalo will again be down to two tight ends, a situation they faced heading into the season opener before calling Jonathan Stupar up from the practice squad the day of the game. Buffalo’s two healthy tight ends are Derek Fine and Stupar.
