Roster Moves: The Bills were busy making adjustments to the practice squad today. They re-signed WR Jerel Myers to the squad and also added tight end Rod Trafford to the five man squad. Gone is RB Nick Maddox. The team also released FB Phillip Crosby from the Reserved-injured list. Trafford played in NFL Europe this spring after being signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent last January.
Fine Reduced: The NFL reduced the fine given to Lawyer Milloy for bumping a referee during the Washington game last month. Milloy was originally fined $25,000 but the league reduced it to $2,500. Milloy claimed the umpire was in his way as he went for a tackle and couldn't avoid him and make the tackle at the same time.
Henry Update: Coach Williams said he's optimistic that Travis Henry will be able to play on Sunday. He did not practice today and probably won't workout until Friday. The Coach said it is not a season threatening injury and not as severe as the cracked fibula that landed Phillip Crosby on injured reserve.
Williams Says Team Needs Balance: Gregg Williams held his normal media day press conference and said that the team needs to have balance on offense and not worry about running on all third and shorts and first down. He said the team needs to matchup on both sides of the ball. The bottom line is first down is the key and the team needs to execute down by the goal line. Offensively, Williams said the team needs to make a play when they have the coverage situations that they want. He feels Bobby Shaw and Josh Reed have made plays. He expects Rian Lindell to bounce back from last week's misses. The team has a big challenge ahead of them but he says the guys are excited by it.
Four Bills Questionable: Eric Moulds is expected to be ready to go on Sunday as he has had two good days of workouts. Travis Henry is officially listed as questionable as is Mike Williams. Izell Reese surprsingly is not on the injury list but Jonas Jennings is questionable despite playing last week. Injury Report.
Williams To Practice: Coach Williams said earlier in the week that Mike Williams is expected to practice today despite injuring his shoulder in a car accident on Sunday. We will have much more injury news later today after the media day press conference. Injury Report.
Colts Should Add To Bills Woes: The Bills face a tough opponent at home on Sunday. The Colts should handle the Bills very easily but there will be one battle to watch, the top ranked passing offense in the league against the number two rated passing defense of Buffalo. Game Preview.

Williams To Play: Mike Williams expects to play Sunday after escaping Sunday's car accident fairly unscathed. He suffered a strained left shoulder and some scrapes. Williams had to be cut out of his overturned vehicle with the jaws of life. He feels very fortunate to have come out of the accident without any serious injuries.
Henry Walking Pretty Good: Coach Gregg Williams said Travis Henry was walking around pretty good today despite breaking his fibula in yesterday's game. He will be evaluated again on Wednesday along with Izell Reese who suffered a concussion in the loss. He was still a bit dizzy and will be looked at on the team's day off tomorrow also. Eric Moulds hopes to practice on Wednesday. Injury Page.
Thomas To Get Award: Thurman Thomas will become the 24th recipient of the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Distinguished service award in a ceremony before Sunday's game against the Colts. He will also be honored by the Monday Quarterback Club in a luncheon at the HSBC arena on Monday. The award is given to players with long and meritorious service to the team.
Calls For McGahee? Travis Henry showed how tough he was playing through a broken leg and playing well. The fact that he is now in a cast may mean that he will miss significant playing time. He told WGR that he fears his season may be over. If that is the case, the Bills may feel pressure to activate Willis McGahee even earlier than they had hoped. There is a chance you may even see him in uniform this week although that remains unlikely. Injury Page.
