Easley Returns; Urbik Gets First Team Reps
There were no changed to the injury report for the Bills on Thursday as everyone had the same designations as Wednesday. Marcus Easley is practicing on a limited basis. He has missed four games with a knee injury but originally wasn't expected to return until after the bye. Ty Powell, Marquise Goodwin, and Fred Jackson are not practicing while Aaron Williams is back on the field after leaving the Vikings game early after aggravating his neck injury. Sammy Watkins is on the injury report as a full participant with a groin injury that Coach Marrone said isn't a concern. Mario Williams is also listed as a full participant with a thumb problem. There was a change to the offensive line as was expected after another poor performance by the unit against Minnesota. Kraig Urbik continues to take the first team reps at left guard instead of Cyril Richardson. Urbik was the starter last year for all 16 games at right guard but has fallen out of favor with the coaching staff. Doug Marrone said he now has to step up but wouldn't committ to Urbik getting the start saying he's just one of many options they are expoloring at the moment. There were no other lineup changes on the line during today's practice. The Bills placed C.J. Spiller on the IR designated to return list. He could come back week 16. He had surgery Monday for the broken collarbone. Since they only have two healthy halfbacks they used his roster spot to add RB Phillip Tanner. He spent three years with the Cowboys after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2011. In 39 career games he has 149 yards rushing on 56 carries and two touchdowns.
