Bills vs. Chargers: George Wilson Could Be Back

It's been three weeks since the Buffalo Bills have had veteran safety George Wilson available to them, but that could change as soon as today, as Wilson has been cleared to practice by the Bills' training staff.

Wilson suffered a stinger in a Week 10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and has missed the Bills' three games since that point - all losses. Da'Norris Searcy has performed generally well in his stead, but there's no question that the defense has missed Wilson's play-making presence and veteran savvy on game days.

In less than nine games' worth of playing time this year, Wilson has amassed 79 tackles and a team-leading four interceptions. Searcy has racked up 28 tackles in just over three games filling in for Wilson, but the drop-off has been noticeable - which isn't a knock on Searcy at all.

Wilson told reporters on Wednesday that he expects to play this weekend. The Bills will wait to see how he responds to a week of practice before making that determination, but this is already a step in the right direction for Buffalo's beleaguered defense.
