No Word On Starting QB: Dick Jauron gave no insight on who will start at quarterback during today's press conference. He said he will discuss all personnel decision on Wednesday.

He said he thinks he stil has confidence in him.
Youboty Has High Ankle Sprain: Ashton Youboty has a high ankle sprain, Dick Jauron announced during his Monday press conference. Expect him to be sidelined a few weeks.

Both Units Cave In 4th Quarter: The Bills fell apart in the fourth quarter as the defense couldn't get any third down stops while the offense was giving up two touchdowns. They moved the ball well at times but there was no consistency on either side of the ball. Gameday Grades.

Terrence McGee, Keith Ellison, and Kyle Williams are inactive because of injuries. Roscoe Parrish is inactive but it is unknown if it is because of a knee tweak he suffered Friday or just a healthy scratch. James Hardy will not make his 2009 debut for the Bills as he is a healthy inactive along with Chris Ellis. Aaron Schobel and Donte Whitner will give it a go.

Hot Weather: It will be unseasonably warm in Nashville for tomorrow's game between the Bills and the Titans. It should be mostly cloudy skies with a high of 73° and little to no wind. This will hurt the Bills banged up defense that is missing three starters for the game.
Fan Frustration: Fans in cyberspace remain frustrated with the futility the Bills have had over the last decade. He is a new article from a fan that gives his perspective on the future of the franchise. Complete Story.

Owens Expects To Play: Terrell Owens did practice on a limited basis on Friday and says he's ready to play. He said his hip started feeling stiff when he woke up on Tuesday morning after falling asleep on the couch. He is listed as questionable along with Aaron Schobel and Donte Whitner. Coach Jauron was optimistic they will be able to play as well after practicing on a limited basis today. That will help but the team has ruled out three defensive starters as Keith Ellison, Kyle Williams, and Terrence McGee will not go after not practicing all week. Six other injured players are listed as probable after practicing fully all week. Injury Page.

Owens Remains Sidelined: Terrell Owens did not practice for a second straight day because of his hip strain. Also not practicing for a second day in a row were Keith Ellison, Kyle Williams, Terrence McGee, and Aaron Schobel. Williams and Schobel did some work with the trainers but Coach Jauron isn't optimistic either will play on Sunday. Donte Whitner, Jairus Byrd, Jamon Meredith, and Corey McIntyre remain limited.

Bills Battle Titans Sunday: The Bills have had success in their history when coming off a bye week. They made adjustments to the offense, especially on third downs, and hope to have more success on Sunday when they play Tennessee. The Titans are red hot and have one two straight games and have the league's leading rusher in Chris Johnson. That could cause a lot of problems for the league's worst run defense. Game Preview.
Wednesday November 11, 2009
Hardy Activated: As expected the Bills have activated James Hardy from the PUP list. To make room for him they waived Xavier Omon. Many thought Roscoe Parrish would be let go but Dick Jauron put in end to those rumors earlier today when he said there is a place for him on the roster. The team is now carrying seven wide receivers which is a shockingly high number for that position. Omon is expected to be added to the practice squad when he clears waivers as he still has some eligibility left. Front Office.
Scott At LB: Dick Jauron indicated that Bryan Scott may stay at linebacker. It is a position that has been decimated by injury. With Donte Whitner on the verge of coming back and the strong play of George Wilson and Jairus Byrd, Scott may not be needed at that spot anymore. Depth Chart.
Edwards To Start: Dick Jauron confirmed that Trent Edwards will start against Tennessee on Sunday. They did a few things differently in New York and he felt like Edwards started off that game good and they hope he picks up where he left off in that game when he was injured. Jauron thinks Edwards has the confidence to win. Edwards has focused a bit on his footwork but his technique is good and it is just something he wants to stay on top of. Jauron said Trent has earned the right to be back in there and they are looking forward to seeing him play.
Owens Has Strained Hip: Terrell Owens was one of several players that did not practice today because of injury. He has a strained hip that flared up yesterday and is really bothering him. He did practice on Monday but his status for Sunday's game is up in the air at this time. Also sitting out today were Terrence McGee, Keith Ellison, Aaron Schobel, and Kyle Williams. Jamon Meredith and Donte Whitner appeared to be limited. Dick Jauron will update the media at around 2:30 with his usual media day press conference. Injury Page.
Roster Move Likely: It's media day with Dick Jauron likely to decide who will be his starting QB for Sunday's game against Tennessee. He also needs to make a roster move today as they will likely activate James Hardy from PUP today. Someone will have to released or placed on injured reserve.
