Jones has setback

Receiver Donald Jones suffered a setback regarding a head injury suffered last week against New England. After missing practice Wednesday, the rookie receiver also missed practice Thursday.   

“We’ve got a setback on Donald,” said Gailey. “He’s not ready to practice.”

Jones suffered the head injury when he landed on his shoulder and head on the frozen turf while attempting to make a reception along the far sideline in the loss to the Patriots. He did re-enter the game last week a short time after that play.

Gailey could not confirm that Jones suffered a concussion.

“I don’t know if they’ve said that, but he got it knocked around,” he said. “I don’t want to say it is (a concussion), until they tell me officially what they’re saying it is. I know they’re doing a bunch of tests on him and he has to pass a bunch of stuff before he can play.”

If Jones is unable to play Sunday it could leave the Bills with just three healthy receivers on the active roster. David Nelson has also been unable to practice due to a rib injury.

Buffalo does have a pair of receivers on their practice squad in Bobby Williams and Rod Windsor.
