Gailey: Kelsay is 50-50

Posted by Chris Brown on November 12, 2012 – 8:02 pm

Bills DE Chris Kelsay missed Sunday’s game after sustaining a neck injury in practice last Thursday. Now with another game four days later, head coach Chan Gailey has left Kelsay’s availability for the prime time game against the Dolphins up in the air.

“I don’t know if I can give a percentage of how close he was (to playing) Sunday,” said Gailey. “It was either yes or no and it was no Sunday. We’ll have to see this week. It could be yes. It depends on how much he develops and gains confidence as the week progresses. It could be yes and right now it’s probably 50-50.”

What Gailey, his defensive assistants, the athletic training staff and Kelsay himself does not have this week is an opportunity to really test his neck in a real practice because of the short run-up to Thursday night’s game. That will make it tougher for all parties to effectively assess Kelsay’s readiness for the game.

“It’s complicated by that,” said Gailey. “We’re not going to do much hitting at all. So it’s really how he feels and we’ll put him through some simulated things without actually practicing on the field.”
