ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills receiver Donald Jones will miss between four and six weeks with a sprained left ankle, and starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams' status is uncertain for the team's game at the New York Giants this weekend.

Coach Chan Gailey provided the updates Monday, a day after Buffalo (4-1) beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 31-24.

Jones was hurt in the first quarter after making a 7-yard catch. He's fourth on the team with 174 yards receiving. Buffalo already has two receivers on injured reserve, Roscoe Parrish (ankle) and Marcus Easley (chest).

Williams hurt his ankle in the second half. Gailey's not sure Williams can play Sunday, but has not ruled him out.

The Bills already lack depth at the position, with reserve Torell Troup (sore back) missing four of five games.

Gailey ruled out starting left tackle Demetrius Bell (right shoulder) and linebacker Chris Kelsay (left calf) from playing Sunday.
