Bills LT Bell all but ruled out against Jets
Monday, October 31, 2011
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills starting left tackle Demetrius Bell is in jeopardy of missing his fourth straight game because of a right shoulder injury that isn't healing as quickly as expected.
Coach Chan Gailey provided the update Monday, stopping short of ruling out Bell from playing Sunday, when the Bills (5-2) host the New York Jets (4-3). Gailey said injured backup left tackle Chris Hairston has a better shot at returning than Bell.
Hairston has missed one game with a right ankle injury.
Gailey said receiver Donald Jones (sprained left ankle) has a chance to play Sunday after missing two games. Starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams (left foot) has already been ruled out for a third straight game.
Buffalo is coming off a 23-0 win over Washington at Toronto on Sunday.
