Bills a Beat Up Team Heading Into Finale at New England

The Bills finally got a win on Sunday when they shut down Tim Tebow and the Broncos, but the win didn’t come without a cost.

Coach Chan Gailey said Monday that the team suffered a number of injuries in the win that will have an impact on the teams finale against the Pats on the road Sunday.

Three players will be out for Sunday — including starting offensive linemen Demetrius Bell and Kraig Urbik. That leaves the Bills (6-9) limping toward the finish Sunday with a roster that already has 16 players on injured reserve.

Bell (knee/ankle), right guard/center Urbik (right knee) and reserve tight end Mike Caussin (right knee) were all hurt in the win on Saturday. Gailey said there’s a possibility all three will require surgery.

Though Gailey said it’s too early to determine whether the Bills will make any roster moves to replace the injured players, the team will likely have to add at least one offensive lineman.

Without Bell and Urbik, Buffalo’s left with only one reserve. Rookie seventh-round draft pick Michael Jasper is a candidate to be promoted from the practice squad.
