Bills linebacker Angelo Crowell is out for Sunday's game after deciding to have his knee scoped for a persistent knee problem.
According to head coach Dick Jauron the decision "came out of the blue" as Crowell will have the surgery in the coming days.
"He's out for the game and that's a surprise," said Jauron.
It's not a major reconstructive surgery as the routine scope usually requires a 2-3 week rehab before returning to action.
Jauron said Keith Ellison will step into the starting lineup to fill the void.
Chris Brown also mentions in his blog that Poz sat out practice, fo what i can only hope is a minor injury. I am not an Ellison fan and think this greatly affects our effectiveness on defense. However, if the D-line has made the types of strides it seems to have, and Poz and Mitchell are both fine, than Ellison may be helped by the supporting cast. He knows the defense, but I am not a big fan of his athletic ability or size in comparison with Angelo Crowell.
