Injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on October 1, 2009 – 6:05 pm

Not participating in practice at all Thursday were Demetrius Bell, Donte Whitner, Bryan Scott, Leodis McKelvin and John McCargo.

Limited in practice was Kyle Williams. And full go for the first time in almost two weeks was Shawn Nelson. Dick Jauron said that Roscoe Parrish was a little lightheaded at practice and missed a few plays, but after he got some fluids in him he was fine.

Nelson is certainly the best injury news the team has had at that position in a while. It means there’s a decent chance the Bills will have three tight ends at their disposal on Sunday. They went into last week’s game with just two.

The Dolphins’ safeties have had trouble covering tight ends thus far this season, though it should be noted they’ve gone against three pretty good ones in Tony Gonzalez, Dallas Clark and Antonio Gates. But Nelson is athletic and could have some opportunitiese to make plays provided he gets through the rest of the week okay.
