Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey has never been shy about rotating offensive linemen during one game since his arrival last season, and that trend is reportedly expected to continue this Sunday against the New York Jets. With left tackle Chris Hairston still limited - but likely to play - Gailey told reporters on Thursday that the rookie could split reps with left guard-turned-left tackle fill-in Andy Levitre.

Hairston is one of three players - along with receiver Donald Jones and corner Aaron Williams - trying to return from injury. While Hairston and Williams remain limited this week, however, Jones was a full participant on Thursday - though Gailey cautions he's still not 100 percent.

Chris Kelsay was added to the injury report, as his calf issue has flared back up. He's still expected to play - as is quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has been limited this week by a chest injury suffered on a hit from London Fletcher last week.

The team only had two non-participants on Thursday: left tackle Demetrius Bell (shoulder) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (foot). Both players will be out on Sunday.
