Barnett Misses Practice of an Ankle Injury; Merriman and Wood also Miss Practice

Bills starting linebacker Nick Barnett expects to play this weekend against the Eagles despite being held out of practice because of a sore right ankle.

Barnett doesn’t think the injury “is too serious” and expects to return to practice in the next few days. He rolled his ankle in a 23-20 loss at Cincinnati on Sunday, and wore a protective boot at the team’s facility a day later.

Linebacker Shawne Merriman (shoulder) and center Eric Wood (ankle) also did not practice Wednesday, though both are expected to play Sunday when Buffalo (3-1) hosts the Eagles (1-3).

Cornerback Terrence McGee practiced for the first time since hurting his hamstring in Buffalo’s opener. McGee says it’s too soon to say when he might be ready to play.
