Bills Practice: The Bills hit the fieldhouse for their only practice of the bye week. The players will be off the rest of the week. Chris Kelsay said he feels good and was on the field in limited duty. It looks like he will be back after the bye. Many players got the day off to use the bye week to nurse injuries. Not practicing today were Donald Jones, Aaron Williams, Nick Barnett, Shawne Merriman, Andy Levitre, Chris Hairston, Demetrius Bell, and Kyle Williams. Jones is doing a lot better and may be ahead of schedule in returning from his ankle injury. He was originally diagnosed to be out 4-6 weeks but hopes now it will be closer to four. That means he may be able to come back against the Jets in two weeks. Williams is expected to miss another game or two and will likely not be 100% all year. Injury Page.
