Henry Participates: As we reported earlier, Travis Henry did practice with the team today. He took part in individual drills, but plans to take part in the full team practice tomorrow. If practice goes well over the next two days there is a good chance he will play on Sunday.
Myers Back: The Bills filled the open spot on their practice squad by re-signing WR Jerel Myers. He was released from the squad last week to make room for RB Nick Maddox.
Bledsoe On Offensive Woes: Drew Bledsoe spoke to the press as usual on Wednesday today. He spoke about the offensive problems and said that their confidence has not fallen off and they believe they can play with anybody. He said they are frustrated by the negative plays and penalties and they have forced themselves into up hill battles. He does feel the team needs to have sharper focus although he thinks they have practiced very well but they need to be able to bring that to the game and focus better on Sundays. He said that the Bengals are a good team that plays sound defense and blitzes well. If they don't come to play they will not beat them. Bledsoe did re-iterate that he has complete confidence in Josh Reed. There has been growing speculation that he had lost faith in him since he did not throw to him down the stretch against Philadelphia.
Third Down Is An Issue: Gregg Williams addressed the media in his usual Wednesday press conference. He said they are disappointed that they haven't won the last two weeks. He said you can skew stats anyway you want but the most important stat was that they lost to the Eagles. Williams discussed Mike Pucillo saying he will learn from the problems he had last week. He said the team needs to find a way to manufacture points and not hit their heads against the wall. What's important is converting third downs so they don't have to rush at the end like they did last week.
Henry To Practice Today: Three running backs are once again the only players on the injury report for the Bills. Travis Henry is listed as questionable and the team says he will practice today. Coach Williams says he is doing better everyday. Sammy Morris is once again but has made progress. Phillip Crosby is obviously out and is on the injury report because he just went on injured reserve last week. The Bengals report is not out yet. Injury Report.
Bills Should Win Sunday: Both teams have running back injuries going into this week but the Bills should have a big edge as they are hungry after two straight losses. Meanwhile, the Bengals are coming off of a victory over the Browns and may be more content. Look for that and the emotions of Takeo Spikes and the 12th man to lift the Bills to a big victory this week. Game Preview.

Henry Works Out: Travis Henry worked out at the Bills facilities yesterday and Coach Williams hopes he will be able to practice with the team tomorrow. He said, Henry was very upset that he was unable to go against the Eagles and they hope he will progress enough during the week to play on Sunday against the Bengals. Injury Report.
Dillon Out: While the Bills may have their top back on Sunday, the Bengals will be without theirs. Corey Dillon has been struggling with a groin injury for a couple of weeks now and will not play against the Bills.

OL Woes Continue: There are many goats to go around from the loss to the Eagles but it all starts with the woeful play of the offensive line. They were dominated on the line of scrimmage and did not open up holes for Joe Burns. They only gave up two sacks but Drew Bledsoe was constantly pressured forcing him to not be able to capitalize on the depleted Eagles secondary. For the offense to play at a high level the line must start doing their job especially if Travis Henry remains out for any extended period of time. They will get their chance on Sunday when the Bengals come to town.
