Bills Prep for Titans; Team Fined $20K
Offensive linemen Cordy Glenn and Craig Urbik will miss their third straight game when the Bills host the Titans Sunday. Head coach Chan Gailey saying that both players should be ready after the Bills bye week. The Bills dealing with a lot of injuries early this season but getting most back in a timely manner, like Fred Jackson.
Coming back early from a knee injury, Jackson did not get off to the best start, and fumbles against the Patriots and the Cardinals weren't good. However, he's starting to right the ship. Still splitting time with C.J. Spiller, Jackson with 53 yards rushing, 30 yards receiving and a touchdown in Arizona.
I’m not making the plays that I did for us at the beginning," Jackson said. "Some of it has to do with the injury but for us to be as successful as we want to be I have to go out there and start making some more plays for us. We’ve gotten other guys that have stepped up and made plays for us. Any time that you have that it definitely takes pressure off of you but you know I want to be out there making plays for my team so I am going to do everything that I can."
Defensive linemen Kyle Williams and Spencer Johnson are both listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game. Both are expected to play against the Titans though. Those two and the rest of the defense may have their hands full.
Another go around with Chris Johnson for the Bills. One of the leagues top running backs once upon a time is having another down year - 23rd in the league in rushing right now. But keep in mind, he was struggling last season until he put up 153 yards and two scores at the Ralph.
"He scares you," Gailey said. "Every time he touches the ball he scares you. You can still see that electric speed and electric quickness that he has. Yes he has not had as many yards and the statistics are down, but I am telling you defensive coaches hold their breath every time he touches it."
The NFL coming down on the Bills Friday, a $20,000 fine for neglecting to report Mario Williams wrist injury. Initially, Williams wasn't showing up on the official injury reports, but has been on the list the past two weeks.
The Redskins were also fined $20,000 for not properly addressing Robert Griffin III's concussion.
