Kelsay, Wire Practice: Chris Kelsay and Coy Wire both took part in practice today and both will likely play on Sunday if they make it through the rest of the week ok. Kelsay was limited but Wire practiced fully. Ryan Denney took his usual Wednesday off from practice and Copeland Bryan remains sidelined. George Wilson was back with the team today after his hospital stay for broken ribs. He's already feeling better and hopes to be ready for the playoffs if the Bills are fortunate enough to make it that far. Injury Page.
Fairchild Staying Until End Of Season: It is now official, Steve Fairchild is leaving the Bills to become the new head coach at Colorado State. He is staying with the Bills until the end of the season. Officials at Colorado State say they knew from the outset that Fairchild wouldn't leave Buffalo until the end of the season and that is one of the reasons they wanted him. They like his commitment, integrity, honesty, accountability and responsibility to the team. Dick Jauron said that Fairchild is excited about the opportunity the Bills have going down the stretch and he doesn't anticipate any changes to his coaching staff at this time. Jauron figures there is a chance Fairchild takes other members of the staff with him to Colorado. Fairchild is expected to devote some time down the stretch to getting his staff together while still in Buffalo but he won't be doing any traveling at this time. Lee Evans and Trent Edwards both said that it won't affect the team heading into the big showdown this week. The gameplan is set and Fairchild will call the game like always.
Fairchild Deal Done: Reports now say that Colorado State is expected to announce this afternoon that Steve Fairchild will indeed be their new head coach leaving the Bills looking for a new offensive coordinator. No word yet on if Fairchild will finish the season with the Bills. Fairchild played for the college and was also a QB coach and then offensive coordinator there before leaving to coach in the pros. Hopefully the timing of this move won't be a distraction as the Bills prepare for the big game with Cleveland on Sunday. Let us know what you think by taking our poll on our homepage.

No Move For Bills/Giants Game: The NFL has decided to move the game between the Vikings and the Redskins to primetime on NBC next Sunday December 23rd. There had been rumors that the Bills game with the Giants would be moved but that isn't the case. It will remain at 1pm.
Wilson Out For Regular Season: Dick Jauron confirmed today that George Wilson is probably going to miss the last three games of the regular season and they need to evaluate the situation to see if they need to make a move. He remains in the hospital today before rejoining the team. The team has today and tomorrow off. Jim Leonhard will start in his place. Jauron is hopeful that Chris Kelsay and Coy Wire will be available for the big game in Cleveland. They will have to wait until Wednesday to see how Josh Stamer is doing. He left the game with a neck stinger. Injury Page.
RB Duo To Continue: The two 100 yard rushing games from Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson is exactly the combination one two punch that the Bills hoped they would get with Lynch healthy and the emergence of Jackson. Dick Jauron said that they would continue to use them as a combo although Lynch will get a few more carries as he rounds back into shape from his ankle injury. They will use a rotation but go with the hot hand. Both of them were hot yesterday and they both say they welcome the rotation.
