"We'll play a rotation of several guys in there," Gailey said. "We get Kelsay back which is great, and we've got Spencer (Johnson), (Arthur) Moats and (Danny) Batten. It gives us some flexibility with who can go in there, so we just have to keep guys fresh so they can go after the quarterback."

"Coming out of the 2011 preseason schedule, the way the Buffalo Bills pass rushers performed inspired some to think they'd be near the top of the league in bringing down the quarterback. Six games in to the season, the Bills are dead last in the league in their efforts -- even behind Kansas City, who is known for not sending extra heat at the passer."
