McGee, Reed On Report: Terrence McGee missed practice today as he has the past few Wednesdays. He is resting his bothersome knee injury. Josh Reed was limited with an ankle injury. As we reported earlier, Paul Posluszny and Donte Whitner were also limited. Injury Page.
Meredith To Start? Another week, another starting tackle? Jonathan Scott didn't practice so the healthy players rotated in and out of the lineup according to Dick Jauron. Jamon Meredith did get first team reps at right tackle and told the media he expects to start on Sunday.
Jauron Addresses Media: Dick Jauron addressed the media during his normal Wednesday news conference. He spoke about the development of Aaron Maybin. He said he's learning about the game and they would like to get him on the field more if they forced teams into passing situations. He made a play in the run game last week and they are happy where he is but the fact that he missed time it did set him back. Jauron thought it was really good to have Paul Posluszny and Donte Whitner back. They went through drills on the off day yesterday and will be pushed more tomorrow to see if they will be ready to play Sunday. They have both been medically cleared to play. Both were limited today but came through ok. They have moved Nic Harris back to linebacker but not fulltime. He feels Todd Johnson is a good, veteran player who will provide insurance and knows Perry Fewell. Chris Draft plays all three linebacker spots and is a quality special teams guy. They worked out a number of linebackers and thought he looked really good and is an impressive person. He calls Sunday's game a great opportunity for them and it is privilege that he enjoys. Jauron said trade discussions involving Terrell Owens have not happened and that his team is self motivated. He said that Trent Edwards remains as the starter.
Poz, Whitner Practice: Paul Posluszny and Donte Whitner did take part in practice today taking reps with the first team. Jonathan Scott and Bryan Scott remained sidelined. Dick Jauron will update the media later today on the status of the banged up players.
Signings Official: The Bills made the signings of Chris Draft and Todd Johnson official today. They should both be practicing with the team today. They also added LB Anthony Waters to the practice squad and waived Marcus Freeman from that unit. Waters has appeared in seven games and was a former third round draft pick. He was released by the Saints before the season started. The moves should allow Nic Harris to move back to linebacker. Depth Chart.
Poz Back? The Buffalo News is reporting that sources within the team say that Paul Posluszny may play on Sunday. This would be at least one to two weeks earlier then expected when he broke his forearm in the opener. If he returns it would give the team a much needed lift at the banged up linebacker corps. Donte Whitner also hopes to return this week. We should get updated on the injury situation whenn Dick Jauron addresses the media in his usual Wednesday press conference after practice today.
