Injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on October 23, 2009 – 1:04 pm

Four starters are out for Sunday’s game.

Declared out for Sunday are Trent Edwards, Jonathan Scott, Bryan Scott and Donte Whitner. That means George Wilson and Jairus Byrd will start at the safety positions on Sunday.

Rookie Jamon Meredith will again start at right tackle.

Doubtful for Sunday is Shawn Nelson who failed to practice all week due to illness. If he can’t go that would leave two healthy tight ends on the roster in Derek Fine and Jonathan Stupar.

Questionable for Sunday is DT Kyle Williams, who was able to participate in Friday’s practice on a limited basis. He’ll be a game time decision. If he can’t go Spencer Johnson would start in his place.

Probable for Sunday are DE Chris Kelsay, who practiced on a limited basis all week and CB Terrence McGee, who practiced fully on Friday.

Backup RB Xavier Omon also practice fully on Friday after missing Thursday’s practice due to flu-like symptoms.

WR Terrell Owens did not practice on Friday, but Dick Jauron said it was not injury related. Whether he will be added to the injury report remains to be seen.

Jets injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on October 16, 2009 – 3:03 pm

Jets WR Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful after failing to practice at all this week. Joining him on that doubtful list is fellow WR Brad Smith (quad).

That means David Clowney is expected to start opposite Braylon Edwards outside with Dustin Keller the likely third receiver when the Jets go to three wide looks.

Questionable for the Jets Sunday is LDE Shaun Ellis (knee) who was limited in practice Friday. CB Donald Strickland (ankle) was also questionable as he was limited in practice all week.

Starting RT Damien Woody (foot) is also questionable after failing to practice at all this week either.

Why Reed was absent

Posted by Chris Brown on October 16, 2009 – 1:13 pm

Josh Reed was not at practice on Friday, but it was not because of injury.

Reed was excused for personal reasons according to head coach Dick Jauron.

However, the veteran wide receiver has been limited in practice this week due to a lower leg injury. Reed is listed as probable.

Fellow receiver Roscoe Parrish was limited again on Friday with a nagging thigh injury. Parrish is listed as probable for Sunday’s game.

Also probable are McGee, Posluszny and Whitner.

Starting ILB D’Qwell Jackson (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day and is listed as doubtful for Sunday.

Browns injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on October 8, 2009 – 8:13 pm

Thurs. injury report

Posted by Chris Brown on October 8, 2009 – 6:00 pm

The players not practicing on Thursday were all on the defensive side of the ball for the Bills.

Donte Whitner (thumb), Bryan Scott (ankle), Paul Posluszny (forearm) and Chris Ellis (absent) did not practice.

Limited on Thursday were John McCargo (calf), Demetrius Bell (groin) and Jairus Byrd (hip).

Head coach Dick Jauron on the limited players.

“They were limited because they probably didn’t do as much as they normally do, but they did a good deal (of work),” said Jauron.

Considering that Thursday was a padded practice and Bell, Byrd and McCargo did a good deal of work, their chances of being available to play Sunday are probably pretty good. We’ll have their official injury status on Friday after practice.

Injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on October 7, 2009 – 8:46 pm

Demetrius Bell was back participating on the practice field Wednesday, but it was only on a limited basis. Bell told Buffalbills.com he felt good in the work that he did do and intends to put the pads on in practice Thursday.

Also limited in practice were John McCargo (calf) and rookie Jairus Byrd, who sustained a hip injury in last Sunday’s game.

Not practicing were Paul Posluszny (arm), Bryan Scott (ankle) and Donte Whitner (thumb). All three were in attendance at practice. Scott was doing some light walking with an ankle brace on.

Chris Ellis was absent from practice as he’s still tending to the family matters connected with the sudden passing of his mother last weekend.

Also questionable is WR Josh Reed (ankle). He was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday.

Shawn Nelson (shoulder) and DT John McCargo (calf) are both doubtful, which could leave the Bills with just two tight ends on Sunday.

Injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on September 24, 2009 – 6:14 pm

Bills head coach Dick Jauron provided an update on the injured players on his roster this week.

WR Josh Reed, who did not practice at the outset Thursday, did do some work and was officially limited in practice. His injury was also mixed up with that of WR Roscoe Parrish on Wednesday. Parrish has a quad strain and Reed has an ankle injury. Parrish however, practiced fully.

C Geoff Hangartner (back) did practice, but also on a limited basis.

“That was a good progression,” said Jauron of Hangartner. “He worked in practice after doing nothing yesterday. He took a number of reps. Not as many as he normally would take, but he took a number of them.”

Buffalo’s two starting cornerbacks Leodis McKelvin (ankle/fibula) and Terrence McGee (ankle) were both limited Thursday.

“I would say that Leodis moved a little better than Terrence,” said Jauron. “They both were involved to some degree.”

Reggie Corner stepped in for McKelvin last week when he left with his ankle injury. If McGee can’t go Ashton Youboty would be his replacement.

Shawn Nelson was also limited.

DT John McCargo was added to the injury report Thursday with a strained calf. He practiced on a limited basis.

Saints injury report

Posted by Chris Brown on September 23, 2009 – 8:42 pm

The Saints have been a high-flying offense through the first two weeks, but they’re still a bit nicked up at the RB position.

RB Mike Bell (knee) did not practice on Wednesday and will be a question mark for Sunday’s game. Meanwhile RB Pierre Thomas (knee) who only played on special teams for the Saints last week practiced fully Wednesday and may be ready to return to the lineup.

“Mike did not practice today,” said head coach Sean Payton. “We’ll see where he’s at day to day. Pierre is someone that was back and active last week, played predominantly on special teams. We’ll keep looking at these guys during the work week here and come up with the right plan for Sunday.”

Out for this game is LT Jamaal Brown who has not played yet this season due to a hip injury. OL Jermon Bushrod has played in his absence on Drew Brees’ blind side. Also out is TE Darnell Dinkins (foot).

WR Lance Moore (hamstring) also failed to practice Wednesday as well as starting DT Kendrick Clancy.

Starting DE Charles Grant (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday.

TE Jeremy Shockey (ankle) participated fully.

Posted by Chris Brown on December 26, 2008 – 5:19 pm

Kawika Mitchell is also questionable, but is expected to play after practicing the past two days.

Jason Peters and Roscoe Parrish are doubtful. Jauron said Peters hasn’t gotten worse, but both players are not expected to play.
