Chandler’s injury requires surgery

The Bills wasted no time putting TE Scott Chandler on the injured reserve list today, ending his season with one game to go.  And Head Coach Chan Gailey says Chandler’s going to need surgery, after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

“It’s a knee.  It’s bad.  He’ll have to have surgery.  I think it is an ACL,” Gailey told the media Monday.  He said the injury is bad enough that it might mean Chandler would not be available at the start of next season.

The news on backup tight end Dorin Dickerson is much better.  Gailey says his ankle injury does not appear to be serious, and he might be able to practice this Wednesday.  Dickerson is expected to be available to play Sunday in the season finale against the Jets.

Gailey was asked if the Bills need to sign another tight end to the roster for Sunday.

“We’re looking at all the different things we might have to do between now and Wednesday to see what we need to do,” he said.
