Bills Get Blown Out Again 38-7
Team Fails Again: It was time to get the red pen out again as the team had mostly failing grades once again. The defense is decimated by injuries but didn't make enough plays. The offense is just clueless right now. The defense gave up over 400 yards for a third straight week and the offense barely has 400 yards on the season! Gameday Grades.
Bills Blown Out Again 38-7: The Bills actually led this game 7-3 after the first quarter. It was all New England after that as they scored five straight touchdowns to blow out the injury riddled Bills 38-7. Trent Edwards played the whole game except the first series after J.P. Losman left with a knee injury. Edwards led the Bills on their lone touchdown drive that was capped off by an 8 yard TD run by Marshawn Lynch who was once again the lone bright spot offensively with 74 yards rushing. Edwards finished 10 of 20 for 97 yards in a very Losman like performance. The Bills had plans to open up the offense in the game but Losman's injury scrapped that plan. Game Review.
Losman, Poz, Whittle Out: Add injury to insult, the Bills continue their horrible rash of injuries in another horrible loss. The injury to J.P. Losman is considered a grade 1 sprain of the MCL. Dick Jauron said in his post game comments he would likely miss two weeks. The news was worse for Paul Posluszny who is expected to miss eight weeks with a broken forearm. He will have surgery tomorrow. They may put him on IR to end his season since they will need to get another linebacker signed. Jason Whittle injured his hamstring and they think it is torn which could end his season. Josh Scobey was also banged up in the loss. Injury Page.

McGee Questionable: The Bills have made all four banged up players questionable on the Friday injury report. Terrence McGee practiced on a limited basis and if he can go they may reduce his kick return duties because of his sore ribs. If he can't go, Coach Jauron has decided not to add a fifth cornerback to the roster, they would go with just three corners. His condition did not get worse from yesterday's workout and that is a positive but he's still real sore. Sam Aiken will probably miss the game as he has not practiced the past two days because of a groin injury. He is a gametime decision. Brad Butler and Ashton Youboty should be good to go as they both practiced today. Injury Page.
Everett Heads Home: As expected, Kevin Everett has left Millard Filmore hospital in Buffalo. He took a private plan back to Houston where he will continue his rehabilitation of his cervical spine injury. He is now expected to walk again hopefully within a month. They are expected to get him to stand up shortly. His Mom spoke to the media yesterday and she thanked all the support they have received from the Western New York community. She called the support from everywhere so kind and amazing with gifts, cards, and flowers. Kevin especially liked the cards he received from children. She said the Bills and hospital staff made things easier on her and her family. She expressed Kevin's thanks and appreciation to the fans.
Aiken Hurt: The Bills added Sam Aiken to the injury report on Thursday with a groin injury that came up. He did not practice on Thursday along with Terrence McGee who is still battling very sore ribs. The team is encouraged and hope he will be able to play on Sunday. Ashton Youboty returned to practice on Thursday and is ok along with Josh Reed. Injury Page.

Everett To Stand Soon: The prognosis continues to get better for Kevin Everett. Dr. Barth Green from the Miami project said that the player is expected to stand up soon and should be walking within weeks. He won't be walking normally right away but the long term outlook is very good. NFLPA Executive Director Gene Upshaw and NFLPA President Troy Vincent were expected to visit him today.
Offense On Same Page: Offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild said he's not bothered by comments J.P. Losman and Lee Evans made about the offense needing to be opened up a bit. He said everyone just needs to execute better but did say he has a good relationship with open lines of communication with his quarterback. Losman concurred saying he talks to Fairchild all the time and feels he can tell him if he has issues and doesn't need to deal with issues in the media.

Practice Squad Move: The Bills made a move on their practice squad today. They have added another cornerback from Ohio State and released a hometown boy in the process. Dustin Fox is the newest Bills and he replaces Jon Corto. The team needed more depth at corner and get that with Fox while they didn't need an extra safety on the squad especially with Ashton Youboty and Terrence McGee banged up. Fox was a third round pick in 2005 by the Vikings and spent most of last year on the Eagles practice squad. He was released by Philadephia just before the start of the season.
McGee, Butler Don't Practice:Terrence McGee and Brad Butler did not practice today. McGee is still bothered by very sore ribs suffered late in the loss to the Broncos. He says he's ok and will play on Sunday. Butler is suffering from an unspecified shoulder injury. Coach Jauron is optimistic they both will play on Sunday. Ashton Youboty practiced but is still slowed by a hip injury suffered in the 2nd quarter against Denver. Injury Report.
Another Blowout Loss Probable: It has been a long time since the Bills were this heavy an underdog. It appears that they have no chance this week unless the Patriots have a complete letdown and that isn't likely. Prepare for another ugly loss Buffalo. Complete Preview.
