Chris Brown at BuffaloBills.com is reporting that Bills head coach Chan Gailey plans to play his starters 12-14 snaps in this evening's preseason finale against the Lions.

Brown writes that Gailey's decision is based upon his belief that anything less would not allow either unit to get into a rhythm. The snap count should represent a significant chunk of the first quarter for each unit, if not longer.

BuffaloBills.com also reported earlier this week that running back Fred Jackson, tight ends Shawn Nelson and Derek Schouman, and linebacker Reggie Torbor are all out for this game, while right tackle Cornell Green will be a game-time decision.
