Bills LB Shawne Merriman had said he was confident he’d be ready for Week 8 against Washington, but coming out of the bye week Merriman was not able to practice Monday. Head coach Chan Gailey provided an update on Merriman as he recovers from an Achilles flare up.
“He’s not making the progress we had hoped right now,” said Gailey. ”We’re going to try to work with him and see where it goes.”
Being that it’s only Monday Gailey would not rule Merriman out for Sunday’s game against the Redskins just yet.
“If we get to Wednesday or Thursday and things haven’t gotten a lot better then yeah we might have to rule him out for the game,” Gailey said.
Merriman missed Buffalo’s last game against the Giants.
